Yep, you read that right dudes!
I sucked it up and went to Crossfit!
I obviously look like this now.
Just kidding, I don’t.
But, I am sore which ROCKS!
and not nearly as sore as I was last week,
Which rocks even harder!
In case you care, here was our “main set”:
Single arm overhead press (15 of those bad boys on each arm)
Toes to Bar (20)
Burpees (Hate. Them. 25)
3 rounds… yes… I said three rounds for time.
We also threw in this… just for giggles
Then I quietly did this…
My coach even asked me if I was going to black out.
I wanted to laugh and tell him that I had run a marathon before
(which obviously means I can endure most things),
but thought it was best not to push my luck.
Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.
Am I right?
So… Yes! I went back to Crossfit!
I am pretty stoked about it, to be honest.
Livin’ life to it’s fullest is what it is all about people.
Injury or no injury, I can’t let the “what if’s” control me.
I will however, be careful at Crossfit… but I am not going to be a scared-y cat anymore!
This is so true, people.
Let’s bring it, shall we?!?!
Are you going to join Team Bring It with me?
What do you think of my new look?
Are you as excited that tomorrow is Friday, as I am? (I am pretty excited)
Happy Day, Ya’ll!

Yay! I was waiting for your post on what you thought of crossfit!!! Are you going to stick with it? Were you able to do all the toe-to-bars unbroken??? so exciting!
Yes, I am going to stick with it but not as many times per week as I would like. It is still a little more than I can afford but a friend and I go together on Wednesdays and drop ins are only $10. But, I love it regardless!
the cost is a big down fall… I’m glad you like it! I bet you’ll see a difference in you running too (in a positive way)
I sure hope so! 🙂
I was totally excited it was Friday! I wish we had a box close as I’d love to give it a go.
There are actually 3 in my town, but they are all $130 a month… and I can not afford that. Where I go, to Crossfit Grover Beach, is about a 20 minute drive… but it is totally worth it at $75 a month. Big difference.
I like the change but the blue font is kinda hard to read….maybe its just me.
Hum… I will try a green for the larger font in today’s post. Let me know if that is better?
Some things that are terrible about Crossfit 😉 http://postgradproblems.com/stopcrossfit/#AfjRJ9bMdrTMWfES.99
Oh wow. That was absolutely hilarious. I enjoyed every second of that! Thanks for sharing!
GET IT GIRL! LOL I love that you went! I have contemplated it a few times but have yet to try. Maybe some day 😉
Cori, you do so many other awesome classes- you don’t need to crossfit! You are already ripped! 🙂
So jealous that you CrossFit! I will just have to live vicariously through you! Can’t wait for our next workout 😉
HAHAHA! It is today! So get ready!
YAY! I knew there was a change in your blog! (I’m really bad at observing so I was doubting it for a second). But yeah! CrossFit is awesome! Can you do the toes to bar? I really suck at any sort of pull ups LOL!
No, I absolutely can not do the toes to bar. I have pretty weak abs, but I did make it halfway there. Some day. Some day though. 🙂
OMG, you are evil…!!! I say that in the most awesome complimentary manner though!…I have been thinking of crossfit for ages but been a girly wuss wuss and like you id’d rather be running but i like hard core stuff…SO NOW YOU HAVE DONE IT…i will bloody have to:) argh….looks kinda fun though…
YEAH!!!! It is so much fun! You need to try it! Go! Do it now! 🙂
You are such a rockstar! Love this post (and love the new look of your blog)!
Thank you! 🙂 It was time for a change! 🙂
Sounds phenom. Toes to bar are the devil, but in a good way! Happy (almost) Friday!
They are the devil for SURE. My abs are killing me today! YESSSSSSS!
Yay! Happy Friday to you!
LOVE that you love crossfit and LOVE that it’s almost Friday 🙂
And buck furpees.
I do love it! And YES! Burpees suck.
I must be the only one who likes burpees! I also curse my trainer out like no other in my head….doing burpees is a good time to get out all my aggression 🙂
I think you ARE the only one who likes burpees. Ugh. I hate ’em!
Yes, yes, YES! OMG, I’m so jealous you did stuff with tires!!! My Wednesday WOD was EMOM: 3 pushups, 5 airsquats & hanging snatches (45#) to fill the minute until we reached 80. Yes, 80. Oof! I can’t wait to go tomorrow morning!! Oh, and, I got to run today. A mile but at least it was running. Recovering from injuries suck but I’ll take what I can get. 🙂 So glad you went back!!
Thanks!! Wow! Your workout sounds pretty brutal! Good job! 🙂
