In Sept I started doing CROSSFIT
I had heard from my sister (who introduced it to me) that it was crazy hard but I figured I was in pretty good shape from running- boy was I wrong! Crossfit optimizes fitness by doing constantly varied functional movements at high intensity, basically it's cardio and weights combined to make a workout that kicks your butt! I LOVED IT! I've had a personal trainer in the past but this was unlike anything I've ever done before. After time I found myself lifting weights I never thought possible ( I can bench press 75lbs, deadlift 85lbs) and finishing WODs (Workout Of the Day) that seemed impossible. Not to mention the "side effect" of a better looking body. I lost 3.5% body fat in 3 months! Two years ago I was a size 8, I'm now a size 4!!
150 wall balls with 14lb medicine ball in under 20 minutes!
150 Overhead walking lunges 15lb plate
My butt was soooo sore!
I'm still running (that will always be my first love) and crossfit has helped me be a better runner. 4 months til my first half marathon of 2013 and I'm excited to set a new PR!
Yep...pretty much sums up 2013
