Tonight’s crossfit class was hard, but I couldn’t have been more proud. I had a terrible day, I came home from work screaming and crying and letting out every emotion I was holding in during the day, but I still pulled myself together and made it to the gym, and I am glad I did. It turned my mood around. We learned some new things and I felt really good about them. I don’t pick the moves up THAT quickly, but quickly for me, which is great. We also were introduced to wall balls. You squat down, push the ball up so it hits somewhere on the grey line (I was close guys), and then use the momentum from catching it to squat back down and then keep going. It was painful but I was able to do them. That is a good thing in itself. We also talked about step ups onto a 20 inch box and jumping onto steppers, I’ll call them. I don’t really know how to explain what they were.
We did a 10 minute set after that where we had to do 3 wall balls and then 6 jumps onto the stepper. I normally avoid jumping on the ground or onto anything at all costs because I hate jumping. it’s so physically uncomfortably for me, it’s also physically challenging. I got into a good rhythm and I did 12 sets in 10 minutes and I left that gym in a completely different mood than I walked in.
