#CrossFit Progress!

Crossfit

It has been three weeks since I started working out at CrossFit Veer.   I am really encouraged by my progress.  I have already been seen a lot of personal improvement in some significant areas.  A few examples:

  1. Squats. When I began, I could barely to a squat to the level of my knees.  I can now almost sit on my heels, even when using significant weight.
  2. Pushups. I started out doing pushups on my knees, with my hands on a bench, and could barely push myself up.  I quickly advanced to my toes on the floor, although still using the bench for my hands.  This morning, I did inverted pushups, with my knees on the bench and hands on the floor, and performed quite well.
  3. Running. Last week, I ran 400 meters for the first time in many years.  I was somewhat winded, but I did it! 
  4. Endurance. At first, even the simplest workouts had me huffing and puffing. Each week has been better for me.
  5. Recovery time.  It was tough to recover from the workouts when I started.  It took a long time to feel strong enough to do much of anything. But every day, it takes less time to feel good and get about my daily activities.  i actually am feeling little residual muscle pain.  My knees, hip and back still tend to creak a lot, but I am making progress there, too.

Of course, I am a long ways away from prescribed levels in both weights and actions, but I am really making progress for me.  I appreciate the coaches accommodating my current limitations and encouraging me onward.

I really do look forward each today to joining the team at 5:30 every morning.

Thank you CrossFit Veer!
