Perfect timing for Halloween.
Yesterday I got to welcome the Little Green Monster to my home
Say Hello to my little friend-the Kurt Kinetic Road Machine.
I know we will be bonding a lot over the long fall, winter and spring days when the Maine weather is not kind enough to let me outside to ride.
I am super excited to welcome the Little Green Monster to the family-this is a nice little upgrade from me (my previous trainer was a magnetic)
The trainer came with a Kendra KK Trainer tire and a Spinervals DVD too so BONUS!!
As much as I am dreading taking my bike inside for the winter, I am actually a little exited to have this new trainer! I am getting the pain cave ready (as mentioned in THIS post) and I know those dreaded hours of intervals will be a lot more "fun" on the Kurt!! I am super excited to try out the Spinervals DVD too.
Do you Spinerval? Which is your favorite??
I really want to try some from Sufferfest-
you gotta love a tagline like
I will beat my ass today to kick yours tomorrow
I finally did my first "official" CrossFit session today. I have had a lot of interest in CF but the closest facility is at least 40 mins away, making it difficult to fit into my day with Lola. Luckily for me, there is now a local option for me.
I have done may WOD's on my own but it was nice to get some specific feedback on form with some of the exercises.
Today's workout was a warm up of basic skill review for today's session
Curtis P x 5
the above complex is performed with out putting the bar down, the lunges are done with the bar in the racked position

air squats x 20
AMRAP for 10 mins
Then we did 75 CrossFit sit ups (a tad different than traditional-feet together and in a "frog" position to keep the hips out of the mix to focus on using core)
I got in 10 full round and had 3 Curtis P's done when time was called. I went light with the weight today (35lbs) to be sure my form was on point. This is a little different than the traditional weight training I do so I really wanted to be sure I was using my hips to clean and keeping the elbows UP while lunging.
I loved it and can't wait for more. I think this is going to be something that is easy to incorporate into my regime.
I'll leave you with some fun pictures of Lola in action
