Made it

to Crossfit that is. I was dreading going, really dreading going. I hadn't worked out all week, everything was sore, it was going to be a slaughter. Also, this was benchmark week. I just did not have it in me to push hard on the benchmarks. That was one of the reasons I didn't go this week. But I went tonight, I did Cindy, and I lived to tell about it. I am going tomorrow and I'm going on Sunday.

Okay, so here's the routine. I had the choice between Angie and Cindy. Angie is 100 push ups, pull ups, sit ups, and squats. Cindy is 5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 squats, as many times as you can in 20 minutes. I have done Angie before and it's not that bad. But, having missed all week, and knee and shoulder hurting, I decided to go for Cindy. Of course, I can't do the pull ups, so it's ring rows. I tried to do the push up with the blue band, that didn't work. I tried with the green band. That didn't work. So I did push ups on the box. The squats were painful. Quads hurt, knees creaked, side of my knee hurt. Yeah, it was ugly. Started to get down. Then, I started to get into the music and I forgot to be down. I just kept moving and rocking to the music and all was good. I did 12 full rounds plus 5 ring rows and 10 push ups. Rocking.... Just looked up my last Cindy and I did better this time. I thought I was taking it easy, but I still did better than the last time I did it. Cool.
