    I think it is awesome that you are enjoying cross-fit so much. I have been hesitant to try it because Im worried it will hurt my running, especially if Im training for something long. I have always had a hard time recovering after intense workouts, and I didnt know how you are doing combining both running and cross-fit. Im super curious to try it though! Sounds like so much fun!

    I’m looking for a cross fit gym around where I live just to give it a try. My usual breakfast with a bowl of cheerios with coconut milk… I think it’s time to switch things up with something like above. It looks pretty darn good and filling.

      Replacing the milk with greek yogurt is very filling, especially when you add the nuts. Nuts = lasting power!

    I think it’s great you are really enjoying CrossFit. Anything that gets women to strength train is a very good thing! I decided not to continue with CrossFit because I prefer other workouts more, but I like knowing that there are CrossFits all over the country in the event I decide to move away.

      The beauty about strength training is there are so many options out there to get strength training in and no one workout works for everyone. I’ve struggled with regularly strength training for years and am happy to finally find a workout I don’t mind committing to (just like you and Refine Method!). It’s nice to wake up and literally jump out of bed because I’m so excited to get to CrossFit and start my day. I feel the same way about running too!

    I am also a triathlete turned CrossFitter and I am totally addicted. I haven’t tried Helen yet but it looks like fun!

    You sound so happy! I think between CrossFit, preparing for an IronMan, and getting married you are one happy girl. πŸ™‚

    Any thoughts on your training plan for the IronMan, and where CrossFit will fit into it?

      I feel happy! I’m taking Ironman training and CrossFit one day at a time. If I feel that it’s too much down the road, I have no problem dropping out of CrossFit. I can always pick it back up after the Ironman, but I only have this one Ironman to train for. πŸ™‚

    I love hearing about crossfit – I wish we had a box in my town so I could at least check it out!

    Oh helen. Those ones that don’t “look” bad usually have me dry heaving at the end. I don’t usually say anything is “bad” anymore cause I will regret it by the end of the workout

    I don’t know anything about CrossFit, but based on your time and the fact that I think you’re trying to do it as fast as possible, you kicked butt!

    Go on with your bad self! CF really is addicting (and I’ve only been “on it” for a month)! Haven’t done Helen yet, but sounds like something I might tackle during some “open gym” time. πŸ™‚ I have so much to learn and accomplish!
