I have been feeling a little blah and unchallenged with my workouts lately so this morning I decided to finally make my way back to CrossFit. I can’t remember the last time I did a WOD. I have had the intention to go to class but just haven’t been able to fit it into my schedule (funny since all I have to do is step out of my office to take class ;)) so I have just been doing my own strength workouts.
This was a good welcome back WOD since there were no heavy barbell movements (and no burpees!). I finished in 16:14. I have to tell you though…I HATE ROWING.
It is 100% for sure my least favorite form of cardio. I would rather run, spin, elliptical, run stairs…anything! I can’t say that it’s not effective though – after 500 meters (about 2-2:30 minutes) on the rower I am usually already breathing heavy and my legs start screaming at me. I frequently make my PT clients row for cardio/warm-up. I swear that the rowing in today’s WOD made my quads burn more than 100 squats. During the last 500 meters I almost gave up at 320 but somehow pushed through to the end. I like the mental game that CrossFit plays with me.
What is your least favorite form of cardio?
I took a yoga class after CrossFit. It felt wonderful to yoga after all the squats and pushups. I came home after class and made a brunch quesadilla. Scrambled eggs, mushrooms, bacon, spinach, cheddar and avocado with sour cream and salsa. Pineapple on the side.
I taught yoga, trained a client and ran errands this afternoon. I am really trying to cut back on excess spending so I made dinner at home. I sauteed tofu, bok choy and stirfry veggies with soy sauce, vegetable stock and Trader Joe’s Thai Red Curry Simmer Sauce and served it over brown rice. As good as take out!
I am going to post the 26 random acts teams and instructions tomorrow. Stay tuned!
Happy Saturday night!
