7:30am – CrossFit, Instructor Training Program
So we didn’t do our regular ITP routine this morning, instead we all measured each other and then did the workout to get ourselves going on the Whole Life Challenge. My total girth (both biceps, waist, hips, both thighs) came out to 135.5—my weight is basically back up to where it was before I cut weight for rowing in January. It’s more than I like to weigh and this last month has not been one of my favorites, so I’m excited to use this challenge to fine tune what I’m doing with my body.
AMRAP in 12 minutes:
12 rounds + 5 burpees, 4 situps
This was way more painful than it needed to be. Wasn’t warmed up at all, so just dove in and tried to keep a steady pace. I was right next to Logan, who I thought was way ahead of me since he did his burpees in a fraction of the time I did, but Michael informed me halfway through the workout we were actually on the same round, so that motivated me to keep my pace going.
Squats were definitely the worst part. Not sure why, if it was Muay Thai and running, or not being warmed up, but they were excruciating from the first round and I refused to break up any of the sets. We’ll see how tomorrow feels!
Happy with my score and will be happy to beat it at the end of the Challenge in 8 weeks! Totally confident I will be fitter and faster then.
