Back at the (CrossFit) Box

Sunday marked my official first day back at CrossFit. Although I had been doing home WODs for several weeks already, this was my first time back at the gym, seeing some of my fellow Crossfitters, hearing about some of their recent accomplishments and goals. Many of them are currently doing the Open, with Week 3 coming up tomorrow. 

I had hoped that I’d be ready to also be taking part in the competition but I’m allowing myself time to rest and having faith that sooner than later I’ll catch up again. 

CrossFit Open 15.5
   
My first WOD on Sunday was a 12 AMRAP of:

8 Sumo Deadlift High-pulls (55#)

6 Ring rows

4 Over the bar burpees

I finished 7 rounds and started on the 8th, completing the SDHPs, ring rows and 2 of the burpees.

I’m hoping to make it to the gym twice a week but I’ll be happy to at least go on Sundays with my husband while my mom watches the baby. 

I finished my Sara Haley challenges on Saturday but hope to continue incorporating some of the movements when I work out at home.

Stay active! Xo

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!
