My husband is finally home from fishing with his buddies at Grand Isle which means I can to go Geaux Crossfit tomorrow morning! I checked out the WOD and it is not something I am totally scared of ....which is a good thing....
I have been emailing/texting/facebooking (hows that for support? pretty amazing, huh? ) with my fabulous trainer Amber and she gave me the friendly and gentle nudge (or should I say stern push) that I needed to step my exercise up some.
When I first started at Geaux Crossfit, I could only workout once or twice a week and then was sore (like someone help me off the toilet sore) for a week afterwards. Now I still have some aches and pains but, truthfully, if my schedule allowed, I could go everyday.
But, alas, life gets in the way. Because of work/school/child schedules, going 3 times a week is already a burden on my family. I cannot ask them to add a few more days into the mix. So, I went over my schedule and realized that I can run from 5:30am - 6:00am on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays without upsetting any family member's schedule or routine. So, my public declaration is that I will continue to attend Geaux Crossfit 3 times a week AND run one mile at least 2 (goal is 3) additional days. I never even considered the possibility that I could run a mile. But Amber was so nonchalant about it....no big deal. Just run a mile a few times a week....and then I brought it up to my wonderful friend/colleague and neighbor Kelly P. I said it almost jokingly...can't believe Amber suggested that..hahah...no way could I do that.... and when I looked at Kelly P. to agree that it was an insane idea she said, "Sounds good. If we leave our houses to meet up at 5:30am, I will have enough time to get home and ready for work." Soooo....Kelly P. and I are starting on Thursday! We calculated a 1 mile route from our meeting point....and we are ready to begin!!
