WOOOOOFTA. I had my first day without the beginners… it was tough.
We started with back presses and I maxed out at 63. I tried adding another 5 and there was no way it was going up.
The WOD consisted of some pretty crazy shiz:
5 rounds for time:
15 Box Jumps
15 Toe to Bars (Note: F THESE).
15 Hand Release push ups.
OK, this was harder than beginners (no, really Molly?) The TTBs were KILLER. I actually LOVED the box jumps, they are super hard but if you get into a rhythm they are kind of fun. I was scared I was going to eat it but I got em’ all done. I even used the prescribed box the whole time.
I did all the pushups from my toes too, the TTB were another story.
I probably got ten total actually to the bar. Then I had to do knee to elbows or just some crazy flicking and grunting action. Seriously, I never want to know what I looked like today I am sure it was scary. I had to stop during TTB a few times and regroup. At one point I thought to myself “Maybe I can run out and no one will notice” unfortunately, lots of the men were done and cheering me on… they would have figured it out. There was another point where I contemplated crying, I’m not kidding. I didn’t I mean come on, your first real class and you cry? Oh, and you are the “yoga” girl… I would never live that down. Instead, I just dropped the F bomb a few times. It helped.
Once I was done, I was pumped about it but I cannot wait until I can actually do TTB. I was the second to last one done and it was actually sweet. Everyone cheered for me and pushed me to finnish. In beginners I was usually the first one done so it was a good and humbling experience for me to… suck. I am serious.
Well next time TTB… I don’t know.
I felt totally rocked and my beginners coach walked over and said “What’d ya think”? My response (while huffing and puffing), “That was F’n hard”. I was sweaty and awesome. Oh, and I finished in 18:54. I am just glad I finished without tears.
Afterwards I showered up and had some breakfast:
Want to know something else awesome? I got a lovely coffee bean ice tray from a gf for my bday- check out how cute these come out!
Last I made some GF, Vegan and (bad sugar) free cookies to bring to my teacher party at the studio… everyone loved them and wanted te recipe, which I made up and will post soon. I usually suck at making up recipes but this turned out! Yay. I will post it tomorrow!
I know, yum.
That’s all for now. I am going to drink more water and stretch my legs. They hurt already.
