I had my very first cross-fit class yesterday and I am in love! I had so much fun, met some new people and learned so much! I can't wait to continue challenging myself - because that's exactly what cross fit was: a challenge. After the warm-up, I thought 'that's just like one of my daily workouts' and THEN we did two workouts that really pushed me mentally and physically. I learned technique and form that will be the base for many of our exercises, and with the added weight, it pushed me to challenge myself through exercises my body was already familiar with.
The aftermath? Today, I feel like I was doing squats all day yesterday, but I know this isn't even the brunt of it, DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) is sure to hit me tomorrow. I'm thinking an Epsom salt bath and some light yoga today will be a great help. I feel all my muscles today and it's that painful muscle soreness that feels so good because I know I had a GREAT workout. I am looking forward to next week and challenging myself even more!
