I’m Back!

Hi There!

We made it back from our amazing trip in Peru! It was an incredible adventure filled with lots of history, culture, wild animals, jungle walks, hikes, tiny towns, big cities, and a few amazing new friends. I do have some upcoming posts to share much more about our journey in Peru, so stay tuned for those posts to come!

Workout Summary for the Week of 8/11/14

Since we started CrossFit at the beginning of August, we had only been able to go to a class once a week. This week definitely changed that pattern…we went 4 classes this week – Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Wednesday, we took a rest day from CrossFit because we went to visit my family to see my brother and our niece and nephew that were visiting. We were still able to play an hour of tennis, a short game of racquetball, and bring my nephew to the beach to go body boarding. Yes, we definitely had an active, but fun week!

We are both really starting to enjoy CrossFit and get the hang of things. We learned a lot this week, and had so much fun going to classes.  Although, it’s certainly good to have the weekend off to rest and recuperate. Jumping to four hours of CrossFit does not come without some a ton of soreness!  No pain, no gain, right?

never give up

The “T”

Well, today’s workout was a doozy, considering we spent an incredibly fun week in San Diego with family at the beach, eating, and drinking.

Count on CrossFit for the wake up call and the smack in the face to let you know that it’s time to kick your butt into gear again. After all the traveling in July, I am going to use this next month to reset my diet and get into shape before we go to Peru to hike the Inca Trail. I can’t wait, but I hope I am in good enough shape to enjoy it!
