How deceptively pretty they seem
All curled up on the floor..... mocking me!
Now I know why they are called "medicine" balls.
I already need some Advil!
Actual re-enactment of a plank.....
(not a real plank per se)
My neighbors asked me to show them what I learned
at class - my first day of CrossFit training!
I think it was a conspiracy....
This lunge looks like I am praying...
And this "bear crawl" is very hard to demonstrate
whilst trying to explain to my neighbor/ photographer
that all she needs to do is point. So - she points!
But the sweaty-ness was real.... right after class
was over - I was not the oldest plank person in the room -
But I was the slowest. For now.
And that's fine by me.
In the Army, we never did lunges or squats.
Not one, not ever. Today was my first.
And my rotator cuff hurt more than I thought it would.
I guess that happens when you actually use it!
I can't yet estimate how much (or how little) space I take up.
So when I had to stand next to someone,
I had to remind myself that I was not about to
get in her space with my butt....
She said, in fact, I barely have one!
So as my first day as a "gym-rat wanna-be"
comes to a happy close,
I made it through without quitting or crying.
Hit the showers, and BioFreeze for the night.
And I am completely off the Monster.
Just water so far.... Not even Diet Ginger Ale.
Not even NoCarb Jack.
I'm thinking it won't help so much with my training.
Which I am taking very seriously.
And my new-found Carb Master yogurt from Kroger
They say it's always been there, but I never saw it-
So, thanks for reading along!
Golly - what a day this was!
Hope your is going great, as well!
