  1. No one...no one's ever made that joke before, right? I started CrossFit a couple weeks ago, and so far I'm really enjoying it. I've always wanted to play around with different ways of getting stronger—barbells, kettlebells, bodyweight...—but it's been hard to know how to try them all out in the context of consistent strength training. I know some people wouldn't necessarily call CF consistent strength training, but it's what I'm looking for right now—an equipped place I go to at predetermined times where someone has already done the programming for me and is there to help me with any doubts and encourage me to push past roadblocks. (It's even better because at the time of day I go, I'm either alone or one of two or three people, so I get a lot of attention from the trainer.) I'm still at a point where the warmup already somewhat wears me out, so by the time we get through mobility and strength the (super scaled) WOD can be pretty tough, but I'll only get stronger by continuing to go and push myself. Even with this big new workout, though, I don't want to stop running—but I need to scale it back if I want to be able to keep up with both things without risking injury. At least for the duration of this challenge, I'm going to do just one mile three times a week (with the third run occasionally being replaced by a longer run with my running group). With the warm-up and cool-down walks, it's still something that will get me out and moving for a bit, but it's so short that it'll be hard to find excuses to not go out and just do it. I'm also hoping to see my mile time improve over the course of the challenge. On Tuesday, it was 10:55. Can I get it to below 10 minutes?!? I'm running in my local park with some ups and downs, not on a totally flat track, so this won't be scientific, but I'm looking forward to seeing some progress. My two other goals will be pretty simple - 1.5 liters of water a day (even more important now that I'm working out more and the weather's getting warmer) and finishing a book by the end of this challenge. I've made a conscious decision to not focus on food too much for this challenge, at least at the start. Long story short, I just don't have much spare brainpower and time to spend on it right now. I'm still going to make an effort to make more good decisions than bad ones, but I'm not going to set any rules for myself for now. My boyfriend is talking about eating a lot better, so I'm hoping that he's serious about it—that would help a lot. He makes delicious salads. I have another trip during this challenge, a long weekend in London with my boyfriend at the end of the third week to go to a conference and celebrate our five-year anniversary. Trips tend to throw me for a loop. I'm hoping this one doesn't! It's relatively short, and I don't think I'll have to go too crazy preparing beforehand and catching up afterwards. I'll have to adjust the number of times I work out that week, since I'll only be home Monday to Wednesday, but otherwise...it should be okay...?!? To sum up: 1. Go to CrossFit three times a week. 2. Run one mile three times a week. 3. Drink 1.5 liters of water a day. 4. Finish a book by the end of the challenge.
