My first WOD

WOD..huh? I'm a noob so I didn't know until yesterday that WOD means Workout of the Day. But I'm a crossfitter now so I've got to learn the lingo! I've been studying up on what deadlift, snatch, jerk, or push press all mean. And don't even get me started on all of the acronyms I need to learn! Jeesh!

Yesterday I did my first workout and it's been tricky trying to figure out a schedule of what I want to do and when I want to do everything. On top of that, I don't have any equipment. None. Okay, I lied, I do have a set of 8 lb dumbbells. And you're probably thinking, "What?! How does she think she is going to do crossfit without weights?!" But calm down and remember I'm just a beginner! I'm using my body weight for my workouts, and as I progress, I intend to invest in some weight equipment or have my husband make some for me!
Enough with the rambling, back to my WOD! ;)

Crossfit Day #1:

5 rounds:

10 pushups
10 situps
10 air squats

It took me about 10 minutes just to do these..and by the 3rd round I could barely do a situp! (Thank goodness no one was here to see me trying to sit up in the last set! It was not pretty!) I'm pathetic I know! That evening, I went on a mile run and it took me 9 minutes and 54 seconds. I swear it felt so much faster though.

So that was my workout yesterday. Today I am sore in places I didn't know existed mainly thanks to those pushups..and I feel like my ribs should be all purple and blue because they feel all bruised from doing situps, but they're not. Despite all the tightness, I'm ready for...

Crossfit WOD #2:

3 rounds:

run 400 meters
10 air squats
10 pushups

Wish me luck..again. (I'm going to need it!)
