The amazing and always delightful Allie picked me up shortly after 3. And after a MUST-HAVE Starbucks stop - we hit the old dusty trail. Our little journey took slightly longer than expected, because of this city's horrible rush-hour traffic and a few slightly meandering turns on our part.
|On our Way!!|
We did hit the hay early though, because we were all up bright and early and heading to our 6:00 AM Crossfit class over at Indestri this morning. Now I was aware that this class was pretty likely to kick my ass, and was slightly panicked about it. Not only am I just barely 10 weeks post-op, but I am also right in the mists of battling a nagging cold. So I wasn't exactly bringing my A-game to this morning's Crossfit adventure. But I am definitely glad I went.
|Getting SERIOUS about our WOD|
Today's WOD was...
1000 metre row (sprint)
That was a lot of upper body action for this gal. But everyone was very supportive and understanding about my *ahem* limitations, so it just ended up being a great workout. I definitely worked some areas that have not seen much action in a while, and it was nice to feel like I was back into training mode (at least sort of).
|Post WOD - Bill, Me, Allie, and Scott|
I am slowly but surely returning to my training regime. But the strength and endurance I lost during recovery is not going to magically come back over night. I had to work to get it, so I am going have to work to get it all back. And that is just going to take time and commitment.
So that is what to today's workout was all about - accepting where I am today and taking my training one day at a time.
Thanks for the AWESOME (and much needed) reminder guys! And Fantastic Workout!
