Here is a little update about what me and the hubby have been up to.
First off, we moved again. To Pasadena this time. We move every year. I almost kind of look forward to it. Always a new place to check out and explore, new people to meet and new bars to Sunday Funday at! Pasadena is pretty cool so far. We live within walking distance to almost anything. And we got to see the Rose Parade live this year, which I have never experienced.
We also got a new pup named Murphy and she is pretty much the coolest dog ever, although I may be a little biased. :)
And last but not least, husband decided he wanted to try CrossFit. We have one conveniently located behind our building so there is no excuse to not roll out of bed and get it done. Our "box" is called Born With It and so far everyone I have met is awesome.
I was nervous at first only because I haven't done CrossFit in years and Kevin has never done it. We are in good shape and we have a ton of experience in lots of different workouts (lifting, HIIT, ect) but if you CrossFit than you know its a whole different animal. What I like most about our new CrossFit family is that the coaches know what they are doing and they spend a lot of time making sure we are all safe as well as having a good time. Safety is always #1 in any kind of program you do and obviously matters a ton when you are Olympic lifting.
So far we are two weeks in and we are loving the new workout, schedule and team!
Here is a little article I found that already rings true. Enjoy!
Top Tips For Your First Two Years of CrossFit
When it comes time to throw down in a wod, don’t feel like you have to do everything RX’d or be able to complete 20 rounds of Cindy right off the bat. Go at your own pace. Let the intensity find you. You need a solid foundation of strength and flexibility in order to progress into more demanding workouts. Start light, get your form down, and don’t worry about the mother of three who is deadlifting 250 as you struggle with the bar. Chase your own capacity before chasing the person next to you. Which brings me to my next point…
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that focuses on building general physical preparedness (GPP). It is quickly evolving into a sport of its own, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be your sport or your lifeblood. I CrossFit so that I can do whatever I want: Go out, play sports, learn new things. Having that GPP allows me to take on new challenges. CrossFit is not my life. I CrossFit so that I can have a life…and be awesome at it.
