About a year and a half ago, my CrossFit journey started at CrossFit 1525 in Houston. I’d read about CrossFit, seen the games replays on ESPN, and was ready to dive in. I was excited to see what I was made of and ready to commit myself to getting stronger, faster, etc.
My first month at 1525 was awesome. I woke up everyday sore as hell and couldn’t wait to get off work to get my ass beat again. My lifts were weak, my stamina was piss poor, but I loved it! I’ve come a long way since then. My lifts are slightly less weak, my stamina is marginal, and I still love it!
To celebrate the new year, we did the 5th Mountain
100 burpees, run 1 mile
100 squats, run 1 mile
100 situps, run 1 mile
100 pushups, run 1 mile
100 pullups, run 1 mile
All with a 20# weight vest!
It took me one hour and 36 minutes to finish. Not a blazing time by any means, but I finished. The rest of the day (and the next two days after that) were spent on the couch recovering from getting hit by that Mack truck.
I can check this WOD off my list. Never again…
But seriously, I’ll probably do it again…
