I never want to be one of those people… You know, the annoying folks who never shut up about what they’re into?
Having said that, if I feel strongly enough about something, I don’t typically care how I come off.
So, here goes… a rather indelicate attempt to walk a fine line.
Exactly 100 days ago my husband and I completed the fifth and final step of on-ramping at our local CrossFit box. Although, in truth, that first full WOD was just the beginning.
To clarify: WOD is an acronym for “workout of the day.”
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts (1, 2, 3, 4, and 5), I was a gymnast growing up. So, if you know much about gymnastics (or CrossFit), you’ll know CrossFit is a pretty logical workout regimen for someone with my background. It’s challenging, it’s scalable, and it’s straightforward. And, while the community is remarkabley tight-knit and there are team events in the Games, CrossFit is a very individual sport. Which, frankly, makes it even more my kind of thing. Team sports have never been my style.
The idea of a large group of people counting on me, and the possibility I may let them down? Pass.
It’s late, and I’m fighting a headache, so I’ll call it a night… but, I’ll keep at the CrossFit and be back over the coming weeks to discuss the following:
- How did we get into it?
- How is my health holding up?
- What is a typical workout like?
- How frequently do I workout?
- What does it cost?
I look forward to sharing this new bit of mylifewithfibro with you. Let me know if you have any specific questions, and I’ll be sure to address them.
Until then, stay well. Have a wonderful week. And don’t let a fall flare get the best of you.
