Bye Bye Box Jump Monster

Thursday was the 1-2-3 Punch at Cross Fit where you get to pick your own torture (sorry, I mean workout). That's number 1. If you fail that you take a Cross Fit written test (#2) and failing that you do something like 100 burpees. I have no love for burpees and I pretty much knew I would fail the written test, so completing number 1 was the only solution.

I chose Christine.

3 rounds of
500m row
12 Deadlifts at 95 lbs.
21 Box jumps.

I only had one problem.......a fear of the box jumps. Everytime I thought about jumping on one of those things I would get this image of bloody skinless shins. Not a pretty thought. Well thankfully Eric talked me through it (and yes, even held my hand) until I actually did it. The first few times I was pretty near the edge, but at least my feet were making it all the way up. Once I felt a correct one, I was good to go and went on to complete Christine. Thank God, no 100 burpees!

And the best news is I'M ON THE BOARD finally. That's happiness for this Cross Fit newbie.
