What a road trip! As most of you know, I was and am a CrossFitter first, so I know full-well the amazing camaraderie that comes via collaborative suffering through a gnarly WOD. Once that clock beeps zero, even though you may have started out as “strangers”, you magically cross over into a deep CrossFit empathy rooted in an appreciation for clean-eating and the ability to move large loads long distances quickly.
So although the primary objective of my first official road trip was to help spread the Paleo MeeNut Butter stoke down to San Diego, an indirect byproduct was WODding at almost every affiliate I visited … 6 WODs in two days! Holy moly I am sore! But if I had to do the road trip all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing. Except maybe schedule in some free time because I didn’t get to surf once or even make it to the beach! No bueno!
So here’s what was accomplished in addition to dealing MeeNut-Butter-paleo-crack-in-a-jar for three days:
3 days of travel
8 CrossFit Affiliates
550 miles driven
6 WODs in 2 Days [ridiculous] which in total consisted of:
5400 meters run
358 double unders
185 kettlebell swings
165 box jumps
160 push press
75 abmat situps
60 GHD situps
71 chest-to-bar pullups
50 regular pullups
45 ball slams
25 power cleans
15 back squats
1 tree pose [can't leave that one out!]
1 amazing home-cooked meal [thanks again to Civilized Caveman!]
1 ridiculous dessert cheat meal [at Sprinkles!! hehe ]
And countless photos, videos, memories … all shared with my 1 amazing friend Yoori. Thanks so much for all your help on this road trip!!! Couldn’t have survived without your help and support!
Needless to say I am getting a massage today by the one and only Katie Carlo and am not looking forward to CF Games Open WOD 12.3! The only reason I didn’t do any toes-to-bar on this trip is because I was so tired by my second to last stop that I opted out of the WOD which programmed it. PRAISE THE LORD!
As exhausted as I am, I got to visit some awesome CrossFit Affiliates and share my Paleo MeeNut Butter with their equally awesome communities. Thank you all for your support! CrossFit Inland Valley, BoomBOX CrossFit, CrossFit Mission Gorge, CrossFit Socal, CrossFit 858, CrossFit Orange County, CrossFit Ero, Karma CrossFit you all rock! To those affiliates I couldn’t add to my itinerary, there WILL be a next time I promise!
MAHALO AND SHAKA LOVE TO YOU ALL!
P.S. All you curious ladies – I get asked a lot how I keep my mermaid hair under control during WODs – my friend Yoori caught my transformation here on video. All it takes is one braid, one rubberband, six hair clips and one headband of course! LOL The “Transformation”
