New Adventures

Just in case you weren't aware, this past weekend was the 2010 CrossFit Games in LA at the Home Depot Center. Unfortunately, due to my class schedule, I wasn't able to go and watch this year. But I did get to watch all of the action on their live-stream (thank you internet!) and it was truly inspiring. Watching those amazing athletes in action confirmed how badly I would like to make it to that level someday. For the past 6 weeks, I have been on a bit of a hiatus from CrossFit. I was training so much for Sectionals and Regionals that I decided I needed an "off-season". This summer, with my class schedule, my bootcamps, helping at the CrossFit Gym, and helping out with the fam, things are a little crazy and in order to preserve my sanity I have backed off on my training to spend more time on other things. Well, looks like all those good intentions are going out the window! I've got a fire inside and I'm ready to get to it! Now one of my biggest weaknesses as far as CrossFit is concerned is my running, so this past week I signed up for the Disney Princess Half-Marathon and just to make things a little more fun, I also signed up for my very first triathlon! I figure the only way to get better at the endurance part of my sport is to train for it and there's nothing like a race or competition to keep you motivated! This will be a whole new set of adventures for me. I have run one half-marathon before, but I did not train for it very well. This time things will be different (and I'll get to run through Cinderella's Castle!) So for now, I am trying to figure out how to train for a tri, a half-marathon, and the 2011 CrossFit Games! All I know is that it should be fun! I'll let you know how it goes, till's to new adventures!!
