Today my guide runner and I decided to continue our adventure into CrossFit.
Now for a little background I have completed the P90X program recently. It is a great program for building the glamour muscles, the biceps, triceps and shoulders. It is also a pretty good workout for people with low vision, as the audio instructions are reasonably precise. So I would definitely recommend for low vision people looking to get fit.
However preparation for a return to CrossFit it is not. I fatigued so quick today it was laughable. Also turns out isolated triceps movements are pretty useless prep for real dips.
The workout consisted of:
I fatigued in round 1 and barely made it through the supposedly quick routine.
After finishing we decided to regain some confidence and go for a little run. A steady 1Km warm up and then a few sprints.
We began our 1Km warmup. With a few concise instructions from my guide runner we were making great progress. Then he spouted out a fantastic instruction “yeah loads here, there is cars, posts and loads of shit”.
No left, right, curb just “loads of shit”. We both started laughing as I was gently nudged to the right of the car.
Run complete time for some sprints! This was literally a tonne of fun, will certainly be doing high speed sprints in the future.
