For anyone expecting a blog on Zambia, I am afraid this one might disappoint. I am going to be a bit self-indulgent today and discuss fitness.
I have decided to be ever so modern and hip, I have just joined my brand new local CrossFit box, named CrossFit Amaka. As far as I am aware, it is the first ever CrossFit box in Zambia (let alone Lusaka). The induction session (Base Camp) was on Saturday, and my first ‘official’ WOD (Workout Of the Day for you non-CrossFitters out there) was this morning.
On waking this morning, I thought my biggest problem was going to be my quads. Standing up and sitting down were very real challenges for me on Sunday. I felt a bit tight this morning but nothing tooooo unbearable. I foolishly thought I would work through it.
However, the WOD today focused on arms and upper body. I can’t remember the terminology, I think the pain has affected my brain. But let’s just say that washing my hair after the workout was more work than I’ve ever noticed before, I can’t comfortably raise my arms above elbow level, and driving to work, I was just glad it was mostly a straight road.
This is all just one hour after the class. What on EARTH am I going to do tomorrow?!!! I’ll tell you what – another WOD!
In for a penny…
