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.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
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....
