|Mom, Jess B, & Patti helped me celebrate.|
Workout details below!
On Tuesday I hit my first quarter century (and no, I don't mean in cycling terms). Between early presents and belated celebrations, October is turning into Birthday Month!
I have been so blessed by my family and friends - here's some of my swag so far.
Jared bought me chocolates.
Taryn got me a cute purple tote...I think it was meant as a gym bag, but I eat so much that it's now my lunch bag.
My parents got me new Nike workout pants...
...and a new lululemon top.
You can't see very well from the photos above, but the bra of the top is the awesome blue print I was in love with:
My goal was to finish in under 25 minutes...and I made it!
I also ended up with kind of a nasty blood blister...but I felt super proud of myself for doing 50 unassisted pullups in a workout!
More gifts and festivities to share with you next week...boy am I getting spoiled.
Celebrate with me! Here are two ways you can join in the birthday festivities:
1. Take on "Meghan." You can do my birthday WOD in your box or gym! If you are not familiar with the movements in the workout, PLEASE enlist a certified personal trainer or CrossFit coach to walk you through these. And by all means, scale if you need to!
Row for 25 calories
(be sure and set your rower to show calories and not meters)
Then, 2 rounds of:
25 wall balls
(guys use a 20 pound ball, girls #14)
25 squat cleans
(it's me as a CrossFit newbie in the video!)
Then, when you finish your second round,
