CrossFit gets wet! This weekend, my gym moved all workouts to the pool. Instead of our normal Saturday morning WOD schedule, willing participants were to meet at Sunset pool in Longmont for a swim WOD. I competitively swam through high school so this was right up my alley. I still feel at home in the water but don’t get there as often as I should.
The workout was a 500 meter swim with 55 push ups and 55 air squats. But it was done as an inversion. So swim 1 lap, get out, do 1 push-up, swim back, do 10 air squats, swim again, do 2 push-ups, etc. So the push-ups went up and the air squats went down. I swear that getting in and out of the pool was the hardest part. People were losing a lot of time on that. And you could not dive into the water because of pool restrictions so that took some getting used to.
Sydney has been doing the CrossFit kids program this summer so she was one of 2 kids in her class that came. The kids usually do some modified workout but today they had the same task as we did. She went in a later heat that I did so I got to cheer her own. She was steady through the whole thing and even beat some adults finishing in under 20 minutes!
I had fun doing this workout so I was trying to keep a good pace. Ended up finishing in 14:02 which was the fastest for the group on the day. Not too shabby for an old swim team veteran. 2 more of these to come later in the summer.
