Another Saturday morning of coaching and today I was able to squeeze in a sweat sesh myself. I modified the workout for myself to be: 4 rounds of: 10 20# dumbbell thrusters 50 mountain climbers 15 ring rows 200 meter farmers carry w/2 20# dumbbells Those farmers carries were tough at the end. I’m glad I was able to get my 3 days of CrossFit this week. Running has been a little awkward- yesterday I felt tightness in my belly so I walked instead :/ Some weeks are better than others. We just moved into a new house so finding the time to get to the gym has a little tricky. I do what I can and try not to be harsh on myself. Check back to see my workouts I do while on vacation in Punta Cana next week!
Hi! My name is Julia and I'm a 30-something year-old Paraguayan-born, New Jersey toddler mom. My passion for fitness started when I was 15 years old and joined my local YMCA to learn how to properly strength train. Although I briefly joined my high school track team my junior year in high school, I consider myself a late-bloomer as an athlete. I'm a CrossFit Level 1 coach who first discovered CrossFit with a personal trainer 3 years ago and have been loving it ever since. My other passion is running! To date, I've completed 10 half-marathons and 2 marathons, including Philadelphia and New York. Combining endurance running and CrossFit WODs has helped me obtain PRs as well as age group awards over the past 2 years. I hope to inspire and motivate other mere mortals like myself in leading active, healthy lifestyles!
