Just do it - even if you suck at it!  LOVE this!!  This is how I feel with some of the exercises I have do with CrossFit - running, burpees, back extensions...the list goes on and on.

I haven't mentioned soreness a lot this week (other than my elbow injury), but it's not because I haven't been sore.  I'm ALWAYS sore!! legs are killing me today!  Especially my thighs.  I'm going to take an aspirin (seems like my normal thing to do nowadays) and the soreness will more than likely go away once I'm up and moving around.  It seemed like I just could NOT get my legs in a comfortable position last night.  I would stretch them out and they throbbed.  I would bend them and they throbbed.  It was super uncomfortable.  Hopefully, that won't last long.

Today's workout doesn't look too bad, all though it does have lunges and squats so there goes my thighs!  lol

For time, 3 rounds of:
   100 feet of walking lunges, approximately 30 lunges total
   50 squats
   25 back extensions

I will do my 1/8 mile run before the workout.  I have to be honest and say yesterday's workout wasn't too bad, running-wise.  I think it's because of those burpee box jumps, but I wasn't dreading get on the treadmill over and over.  Don't get me wrong, I was glad to have finished that last round - the fourth round was the hardest.  Not sure why.  I think it's all mental.  I kept telling myself 2 more runs, 2 more runs on the fourth round and when it came time for the last round, I just got on there and did it.  Not a lot of mental talk going on during the last round - so that's always a good thing.  I have discovered that if I pick out a spot on the wall and just stare/focus on it while I'm running, the time seems to go by faster.  Of course, that won't work if I ever take my running outside!  Oh well...I'll cross that bridge when I get to it!
Life got in  my way today and I ran out of time.  Will do this one tomorrow and make up the 2 rounds from Monday's workout on Sunday.  


  1. Berta I'm not a runner either. I've worked at it and I never get fast but I do enjoy going! I find its a total mental game..if u can shut Ur mind off from telling u u can't go any farther then u realize your body actually CAN do it! I'm only running one mile right now..gonna bump that up next week and see if I actually know what I'm talking about! lol good luck on the wod :)

  2. Thanks, Gina! I'm determined to make it to a mile one day! :)
