I had an 8 minute PR on "Grace" today! Back in August it took me over 11 minutes to complete "Grace" RX'ed. In October I scaled "Grace" to 115# and it took me over 4 minutes. Today? 3:03 "Grace"!!! My goal was 3 minutes but I am not complaining about that time!
That is close to the route I took into CrossFit. I lost some weight through dieting, then did some stuff at home, but eventually ended up just starting CrossFit. If you struggle to keep up with the Nerd Fitness stuff, I suggest heading to a CrossFit gym. The results are great, but what makes CrossFIt so great is the community. The community will really keep you motivated and coming back for more.
