I have been doing the WOD for about a month now, taking it "easy" and gradually uping the intensity.
Im a week behind because i can only access the net during the week but it means i can plan my workouts and training accodinally. I do brazilian Jiu jitsu and am Currently studying to be a fitness instructor.
Cross fit workouts are great, since starting ive finally been able to squat and dead lift my own body weight (70kg), and im not far off it as a 1RM for bench.
Yesterday i did a 10km run called King/Queen of the castle 5km up then down a hill in 1hr and 1 min. and i only run when its in th WOD so im preaty happy with my efforts.
Some things i have had to modify,or drop the weight for and at the moment i can only do 2 chins(but that better than the 0 at the start of the month) before i need assistance. I do my crossfit workouts solo most of the time Im lucky becasue the gym i go to is great they have a power lifting club so i can acess olympic bars and training plate they have a assisted chin/dip machine. About the only things (so far)i cant do there are rope and ring work. but i do L-sits using the chin bar ( when rope climbs are in WOD) or dip bars. But i finally found a gymnastic club that do adult classes so on thursday i get to have a play on the rings, wish me luck.

Ps i havent meet pukie yet!! but our paths came very close on Sunday when i went and did the WOD after my hill run.

Hi Fiona! I just wanted to welcome you to the board and suggest that you look into Coach's certification program if you are aspiring to a fitness career.

BTW-great #'s on your lifts! Keep it up!

Went to gynastics last week, lots of flips and handstands, they promise me tonight we will do the rope and have a play on the rings. Which is good becasue my WOD im on today has rope climbs.
