Happy Monday. Happy MARVELOUS Monday!
Now my week was filled with #FitFriends dates. Which I love, cause usually I workout on my own and kicking ass with friends is just more fun.
It started on Thursday evening with my friend Linda – we went for a run along the river after work and it was BEAUTIFUL. Also, we are starting our training for the Survivalrun in March – it’s high time!!
It continued on Friday with a GRIT class at lunchtime with my friend Oli – as always, we were kind of dead after.
In the evening, we had a very spontaneous dinner night. Sandro came to Basel and we met up with one of my oldest friends, Barbara and her boyfriend Chris. She’s a dancer and I was her student when I was 16 – and then became her inofficial younger sister. She has my heart and it was a wonderful evening with DELICIOUS food!!
On Saturday, I went on my last #FitFriends date for the week – I went to the ‘Bring a Friend Day’ at Crossfit Basel. You remember that I did Crossfit before, but that I had some issues with anxieties and the professionality of the Box. Today, I am in a different mental and physical place and this box is a whole other level.
We started quite harmless with a warm up (Burpees – #Ihateyou, Squats, Sit Ups, Push Ups, Split Jumps), then did some strength rounds (Deadlifts, Pull Ups, Kettlebell Shoulder Presses) and at the end the Partner Workout…
And then I was dead.
I didn’t do anything but resting my muscles for the rest of the night – I was almost too lazy to shower. Don’t worry, I did. While whining about my already sore muscles.
Sunday, every human being who corssed my way had to go through my swearing and whining about my soreness. Believe me guys – I wasn’t faking. My body HURT. Everything, everywhere, all the time. I couldn’t even get dressed properly, and now don’t even get me started on how I walked down the stairs. Watch this and you know what I’m talking about.
But despite it – I’m hooked and I will most probably make another try. I just love it!!
Sunday was fuel day – for all those workouts and to let my muscles grow and rest.
And meal prep…
And that’s it!
Did you do Crossfit before?
Do you like Seafood?
Are you a friend of group/friend workouts? I love both – the group or friends can be so motivating, but sometimes it’s just so good to clean my brain with a workout on my own.
