It was a 4 ibprofen, hot shower, 2 hour nap, iced knees kinda day

And it all has to do with the workout I did at Crossfit.
This one I think was the toughest so far.
I did 10 rounds of 10 each of the following:
step ups on a box
kettlebell swings 15#
scaled pushups
except for jumping rope - 30 single unders only I did it without the rope.
I'm not that coordinated yet. 
AND THEN....
a one mile run.
In full disclosure I had to tie my shoe - I've decided to get some of those
bow keepers the toddlers wear in the meantime. 
And I walked a bit before I started to trot.

Have you ever watched the Carol Burnett show?
Tim Conway did a character that had an accent and an old man shuffle.
It took him forever to get anywhere and you could tell
the actors wanted to yank him along.

That's how I run. 

And I'm okay with that because I'm doing stuff I never thought I could do.
And as I keep on - 
 I'm getting better at the stuff I never thought I could do.
And I keep going no matter what.

And I not only live to tell about it another day.
But I'm able to move again the same day too, eventually.

Oh and that round I did is called a WOD (workout of the day)
I did it in 32 minutes and 40 seconds.
Yeah. 
I know.
Me tooooooo....

This is my 7th week doing crossfit.
It's addicting.
I love it. 
You should try it. 

Warning: it ain't for the faint of heart.

I tried machines for my knees - and it didn't work.
Now I'm trying harder.
I have to tell you that the trainers at Crossfit take in account your abilities or lack thereof.
If its advanced or affects my knees, 
the trainers scale my workout to my abilities. 
I like that because I feel like I'm accomplishing.
I try to be with the big kids as much as possible and its so much fun.
