Day 3, end of week one

I am not sure if all cross fits do this or not but Thursday at our box is active recovery day.  Once I found this out, I changed my plan of coming on Fridays to Thursday.  With tennis on Saturday and my body already destroyed, it was a good move.

We did some smashes where you roll out parts of your body with the 45 pound bar.  It felt AWESOME.  We also did some band stretches, and I am going to buy me a band today.
Next we did Planks and GHD which is a back extension machine but engaging your glutes and hams development, more than back.  I could not get up as high as the coach wanted me too.  Something else to work on.

We also did a team event of jump rope and row machine.  It was supposed to be double unders but I don't know how to do those yet.

It was a good last day of the week.  Next week I need to pick up my intensity some but keep learning.

The best thing about doing Cross Fit is learning new things you are not good at.  We all know we can't do a 4 minute mile but I never knew I had elbow flexibility issues or did not have a strong enough back.
