I did it. I finally did it!! I took my very first CrossFit class today!!
I had an 8hour break in my schedule today. Yeah, my schedule blows sometimes. But- I used that free time to make the 2hour round-trip drive out to Southern Pines and do a WOD as a beginner. And I loved it!!!!
I've been doing the same things over and over for a while now. Never the exact same workout, but all the same movements, with the same equipment, in the same gym. Since I ran the other day, I've been craving a change, and I feel like this was exactly what I needed. I lucked out for sure, it was a pretty easy WOD, but it was still nice to be doing something different. And there was a couple who was telling me how to do everything, but nobody was hovering like "let's all stand and stare at the new chick". It was more like "this is how you do this, so...do it".
I did sign up for 3 one-on-one sessions with a trainer to get the movements down pat. I loved what I did today, but I don't wanna jump into a bigger, badder WOD without knowing what I'm doing.
So- moral of today's story- whatever it is you've been wanting to try, just try it. You might just love it.
