Today was one of those days when you just get the rhythm of a particular exercise and you kick ass doing it. Normally I’m not a super efficient runner nor a fast one — but I felt my stride when we did our 800m warm up this morning and it carried through the WOD as well. I love that feeling of just having a good workout – even though I’m tired and sore as hell from yesterday’s WOD. And I love Tues and Thurs training days because Coach Jerry is there to add in the gymnastics element. I’m like a little kid in a candy store learning all this stuff that I didn’t grasp when I was younger.

We also had a really big crowd this morning show up for the 6a. Usually we average about 6 athletes and today we had around 11 — all different levels of experience and fitness — but all of them there to give it their best shot. When you are working out with people that are there to push themselves too — it really adds to your own effort. I love it!

I had a great stride going for the 400 m run each time, so that is where I made up a lot of time. However, I didn’t feel so hot at the end of this WOD. Maybe because I didn’t hydrate beforehand or it was because it was super humid outside – so my asthma was letting itself be known. One of the athletes Anna said — man, you don’t look so good when I was done, so I hung outside to get some air for a bit and drank, drank and drank some more water.
