May Be the Death of Me

So my department is offering a CrossFit-type class.  It’s three hours and will focus on form, as well as nutrition.  The class itself is only being offered six times.  Not sure what we are to do after this initial orientation class but I guess I’ll find out in the class.

Anyway, I hadn’t signed up for a session because as I may have mentioned before, I am more than a little intimated by CrossFit.  I’m uncoordinated and have zero upper body strength.  And then add to the fact I will be working out with people I know.  Yikes.  And most of them are men.  Men who are required by their job to be physically fit.  Men who will never let me live it down if when I embarrass myself.  This entire scenario has disaster written all over it.

But I am pushing all my fears aside and am going to attend the class tomorrow morning.  I need to do this.  I want to do this.  I can do this.

Not sure this shirt brings me much comfort.

Wish me luck that I don’t die doing the exercises or from embarrassment.

Have you tried CrossFit?

    I haven’t tried CrossFit. I’ve actually resisted even trying it because it seems once people start CrossFit, all they do is talk about CrossFit and don’t stop. I don’t want to turn into one of those people. Of course, some people may say the same thing to me about running?

      LOL! That is true! I don’t think I will turn into one of those people. I now that I think about it, I did talk about it a lot today…
