Back In The Saddle Again

For your viewing and listening pleasure while reading today’s workout report: Aerosmith rocking out “Back in the Saddle Again.”

Last night, when I set my alarm for Bootcamp this morning, I wondered if I would really feel up to a workout after yesterday’s long (long, long) run. I did! I felt like a million bucks this morning, and our Bootcamp workout was awesomely hard. Loved it.

We did a scaled version of Barbara:

4 rounds, 2-minute rest between each:
20L + 20R db pulls (plank position), 15-lb. dbs
30 pushups
40 situps
50 squats

My times: 5:20 | 5:20 | 5:00 | 4:38


Then partner med ball, 10-lb. ball:

20 med ball slam + chest pass
12 cradles
15 overhead throw
12 cradles


I gotta give it up to CrossFit! I’ve never done so many challenging workouts and had such comfortable, effective recovery. I have to credit the Zone and the strength I’ve gained from my CrossFit coaches’ relentless workouts and tireless support.
