It is my fourth aniversary of starting Crossfit!
Still haven’t got a pull up though each year I get closer. The list of things I never thought I would be able to do gets longer. It has been a very weird year for training, with the pandemic and the injury I started 2020 off with, I have not been in the box for more than a dozen times. Haven’t stopped training, and we have got a reasonably well equipped garage gym now so Neal and I can carry on training.
The biggest thing I have learnt, is just how essential exercise is to my mental health. Though sometimes it is challenging. For a long time box jumps, triggered my PTSD, I couldn’t even watch other people doing them.
To celebrate (ha!) we had a first go at a workout we hadn’t tried before and happened to be on the programming we are currently following. The WOD was Tabata This! an exciting grouping of bodyweight movements and some calorie rows. It was tough. I went so hard on the cal row, one of my lungs tried to escape. Definitely a tough workout, definitely one to be repeated in the future.
