After the Warrior Dash, I was able to participate in a Crossfit WOD (workout of the day). I was there to enjoy that great day thanks to Reebok and their Crossfit Box.
I changed into a dry shirt (my race shirt from the Warrior Dash which is one of the best race shirts ever!), but still had on my muddy shorts. I still had mud on my hat and in my pig tails. The best part of my post-race outfit was my new pair of Reeboks! I was so thankful for these, since I donated my incredibly muddy shoes (this was their second mud run).
PRETTY they are!! I squealed like a little girl when I opened the box. Chris, from Reebok, must have thought I was crazy. I don't think he appreciated the pretty pink color as much as I did.
I was really nervous about the WOD. I have seen Crossfit workouts, I know people (strong people) who do Crossfit workouts...and my fitness has suffered a bit this summer. My legs are fine from running, but I have really ignored my upper body these past few months. I am a fitness professional (albeit on a bit of a leave of absence) and it would be embarrassing if I couldn't complete the workout.
The workout ended up being pretty straight forward. After getting a brief rundown of the exercises [kettlebell swing, air squats, sit ups and push ups], I began.
The air squats were no problem. I must have been doing them fast because Elena from Reebok couldn't catch me in the bottom position. ;-) Trust me, I got my booty down below parallel!
I was nervous about the sit ups, since I haven't done much core work lately, but I knocked them out. Check out those feet...they stayed flat on the ground!
Warrior miles, I am not sure how long of a workout I could have done. This workout lasted 3:54 minutes. I had hoped for a little better time. The best of the day was 2:16. The cool thing about this kind of workout is that I can do it at home. I will do it again and improve that time!
It was a great end to a great race experience. And all this before noon!! I definitely felt like a warrior!!
I spent the rest of the day enjoying the gorgeous Rocky Mountains with my family.
Thanks, Reebok for the opportunity for such a great weekend. I felt like I was able to really #getafterit!!
