My Crossfit journey started today.
All I can say is.. cripes what I got myself into! :)
Something that I may become quite addicted to....!
Awesome start to the journey. There are 4 of us in this intro cert course, so a nice small number for all the technique training.
Session consisted of ~45mins of technique followed by a fitness test.... uh oh... I wasn't expecting that.
40 air squats (hips below knees)
30 sit ups
20 hand release press-ups
10 strict pull-ups
I'm not normally that competitive. I normally just focus on achieving personal bests when training.
But there is this young fella in the group. He talked himself down a bit prior to the fitness test.
The timer counted down and then we just ate his dust on the 400m run! That boy was quick.
I got him on the pull-ups though :) Helps being tall (I'm 6ft 1) and having some strength.
Ended up with a time of 4min 46sec to complete the test. Fastest in my group (and yeap I was knackered at the end of it), but there was a time of 4min 38sec in the morning intro cert class.
I've now got 4 weeks of intro training and the test is repeated.
Expectations are high. I reckon there is some good time to be shaved off in the run, squats (downside of being tall) and pull-ups. That young fella is going to be hard to bet second time round though....
I'll let you know how I get on :)
