First Day of Crossfit

Originally my girlfriend made an appointment for crossfit, but she couldn't make it and told me to check it out.

I got there and was greeted by a member. He was cool and shook my hand. He led me to the instructor, who seemed like a really laid-back and educated guy.

I introducted myself, discussed my goals, etc. I also asked him if he minded if I went barefoot. He was a little worried I would have problems on the asphalt. I informed him I ran many miles on the asphalt and am fine with it. He couldn't find a reason why not and said sure(huge plus for me!)

I started out with a 400 m jog to loosen up. Then I did 20 situps on a pad(ab something?) with my legs in a butterfly position. He taught me how to do dips and showed me how to do kipping pullups. I need to work on these!

Next we did squats, then the workout of the day. This took a little over an hour and I feel great.

I didn't lift much weight since I am new, but I feel like I can lift more next time.
Well, I just want to conclude that I think I am an addict now. I like the exercises they made me do. I kind of wish they were more functional, but maybe I just came on an odd day. I can't wait for my next session!
