I received my one year anniversary email last week. It is hard to believe that a full year has already gone by. I have learned a lot. I think I had developed some bad habits during the preceding 15 years of weight lifting.
One of the hardest things for me to wrap my head around is jumping when doing snatches and cleans. I used to always think I wanted every point of contact with the floor solid. The feet stayed glued. With CrossFit it is much more about explosive strength. It will take me longer to get used to it.
I didn’t do nearly enough cardio before so that has taken more time to get used to. I still hate running, probably will always hate running. I’ll take 3 minutes on the airdyne if it saves me from a 400 meter slogfest. Rowing is also much preferred.
Definitely looking forward to another year at CrossFit BWI.
