Workout 1/11: Modified Michael

"It's my birthday, and I'll cry if I want to..." And CrossFit almost made me cry this morning; at least it made me grunt a few times. Sorry to my co-workers who had to hear that. I am officially 30-something, which means for the next 9 years I will have straight and crooked numbers after that initial 3. *Whistling "Happy Birthday to me" in my head.

CrossFit: Modified Michael
3 Rounds for Time of:
800m Run
35 Back Extensions
35 Sit-ups
(Time: 23.06)

The two previous Michaels that I reported were as Rx'd, but as of the new year, I decided to focus on doing the modified WODs from Brand X Martial Arts. So, it was hard to compare, but I think this will be much better for me and my progress at becoming more physically fit. I'll still be sore, but at least I won't kill myself either.*Now there's a poster I'll have to get for my track team. Courtesy of Lon Kilgore. My coaching career starts this coming Monday...I'm so nervous, but excited too.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Did your first week back go OK? I am sure you will do fine with your coaching. I can tell you enjoy your students - so coaching will be the same! It's about finding that passion....
