My desire here is not to brag (beginning has a way of humbling you), but to observe myself not only physically through the class but also socially and mentally. Mostly socially because I can already tell you I don't like Crossfit people. I may not have a great reason for that last statement but I am entitled to my opinion from my personal experience thus far. However for the time being I have become one of those "Crossfit people" so I continue...
After the first day I had a hard time walking, I wondered how I would get to the second day not to mention how I might get through the work out. Though very sore I made it through. Physically my body was in a lot of pain, but I was surprised to experience my brain all but shut down. Every day I literally had to take a nap and went to bed very early, and still my brain is having a hard time staying on task. I probably owe it to myself to research this a bit but I am not going to. My assumption is that my body is in need of so much more "whatever" than its used to that my brain isn't getting all that it is used to getting...So I sleep. LOL
Back to those "Crossfit people": I like the trainer/instructor but I feel like whenever someone from the "hard core" class comes in that they are laughing at those of us who are in the beginners class. I am sure this isn't true all the time but I am safe to assume it is true most of the time. There also tends to be a lot of bragging in whatever instruction is given. An example of how to have the right form for a exercise becomes a, "hey (fill in a name here) how much weight do you do with this one."
So I am complaining a little bit here, but I am committed to 6 weeks of trying this Crossfit thing out. And I must say despite fatigue and soreness I am seeing results and do foresee myself able to make a lot of progress physically. I just have a hard time relating to people who's biggest priority in life is to have and maintain a ripped body! I don't think that will ever be me, the priority part or the ripped body part.
