Quivering legs aside, I feel great.**
I took my first CrossFit class at 6 a.m. today. Suffice it to say it was pretty intense but definitely awesome. An added bonus: the North Knoxville location is conveniently about a mile and a half from my house. For those of you wondering what CrossFit is, here's a description from the website:
"We have no mirrors, no machines, no tanning beds, no smoothie bar, and no excuses. There is only your hard work and results."
Hehe! And some more:
"Proven in everyday living, competitive sport, and even battlefield-tested, Hard-To-Kill's systematic approach to fitness will improve your physical performance, mental toughness, and quality of life."
I'd heard so much about CrossFit and wanted to try it. Then the other day, I found a groupon for it and tada! (It's still up if you Knox folks are interested.) I think one of the reasons I enjoyed CrossFit so much this morning was it caters to my primal exercise tendencies. No pain, no gain, baby!
**We'll see what tune I'm singing later today when full-body soreness sets in. If you find me curled up in a fetal position in my office, just pat me on the head and leave me be.
