Keep Going.

I really was against going to CF today. I was content lying down like a lazy ass watching Blast from the Past. You know what actually got me up and going? Yup, my brother. It's his 28th birthday today! Just in case you're not following me on Facebook or Instagram, these are what I posted today...

I mentioned that he is the one I look up to the most... he's honest and challenges me daily. After he read that...

Yeah, no, lol. Anyways here's the workout for today...

Warm up: 1k run + normal warm up *** I already feel like my 1k warm up jog is improving! I seriously can't believe it. I hate running and I'm pretty fat to enjoy running, lol.

A: Front Squat 5-4-3-2-1
B: 21-15-9 reps of:
Overhead lunge 55/35
Chest to bar pull-ups
plate burpees

Results A: 55-65-75-85-95 (2x), pushed it and did 100 flat. I was observing one of the other girls and her max is at 195! That definitely made me at least push it to 100 lbs lol. I really want to improve and be able to have the strength that many of them do. It's really refreshing and encouraging knowing that there are people with common goals. I think I rested the bar weird on my wrist, it's a bit sore. I keep wanting to grip it, but I need to learn to just have my hands there as guides and let it rest on my chest. And gotta keep my elbows up! DARN.

Results B: It took me 10:02 to complete the WOD. I scaled down to 15 lbs for the overhead lunge. I used to be SO conditioned and fit for these! I definitely have more goals in mind. I used a 20" box this time for jumping pull ups. Last time, I did 24" and the bar was lower. C'MON I want to be able to do at least one FULL jump pull up in 2 months. It was my first time doing burpees. Needless to say that CF Burpees > 24 Hour Fitness Class Burpees, lol. Today was the first time where I had to just sit down after the WOD. My brother would show me his friends at his box and I was one to criticize. Here I am getting a taste of what CF is about. As painful as it is and how I feel right now, I feel pretty damn fucking good.

I cannot reiterate enough about what my brother says... The hardest part is getting to the gym. I'm really glad I did today :)
