1. Lacking physical coordination, skill, or grace; awkward.
2. Awkwardly constructed or inefficient in use or construction
Well, that pretty much sums up me tonight in crossfit. Clum-sy....
I have never been the athletic or the graceful, coordinated beauty. I have always moved in an awkward fashion, never athletic and it is usually quite embarassing. That is why I grew up to love the gym, the weight room and of course hunting.
I am strong, I can push around weight...this does not require grace and agility. RIIIIGHT!!!!
Crossfit has opened up an entire new world of movement that leaves me feeling a little like a fish out of water flopping around. Heaven forbid during this flopping gyration I drop my kettle bell on my head while trying to to the baseball sliding stand up thing. Maybe I need a helmet??? I think to myself, please no one be looking at me and of course I am so awkward in my movement that I practically require non-stop coaching.
Stand back please, get me a helmet and watch out, I am going to try to do this!!!
Okay, so I made it through the workout and I felt good afterwards. Everyone started in the same place as me apparently. I would nearly wager that I am slower to catch on than most but that remains to be seen. I am told that I will learn the movements and my "coordination will develop" according to Sean, my very patient coach.
So here was my workout today:
