Here you get some photos from the small crossfit-competition here in Portugal in our gym Scape. And both Nuno the brother of Tiago and Tiago himself was also competing so that was fun to be in the same competition together as both of them. And as Tiago said about him and me: “This was the first of many competitions that we will do together baby!” 🙂 ❤
So true amor! 😉
Sitting and waiting for your turn. And after the competition some of us were almost collapsed haha, and some of us (read especially Tiago and his brother Nuno) was joking around before they started! Haha! Love you guys!
Today was the small Crossfit-competition: I won! And I did that with 30sekonds faster than the girl at second place. And she is competing i crossfit, training everyday and work in gym. I´ve trained six times in 6 weeks. Never did or competed in crossfit before AND I didn´t find my asthma-medicine. So I have all rights to be happy with myself today + I did PB in the row-machine even if I needed to stop 3 times to breethe! 😉 Thank you everyone for the support and first thank you God for being my lungs and “medicine” today! 🙂 ♥
Here you have the workout:
20 push ups
20 jump to the box
10 times 10 meters sprint
I did that in 5:48 minutes. Not so good time but because of my conditions I am proud over myself. =)
10 minutes (just to try) a new cardiomachineI´ve never used before and dont know the name of.
More I didn´t do. I need to training smart with the asthma. But I got my confidence up compare to two days ago. And my body seems to respond fast on the trainings.since my 1 ½ month without training.
Only less then one week ago I only did 2x500m row, 55 push ups, 60 squats, 60 burpees and 40 jumps to a box á ½ meter. And after this I couldn´t breethe, I almost vomit, and had taste blood in my throat + pain in my lungs everytime I was breething. It was under control but still scary. And the session I did yesterday (as written in the beginning of this post) I did more, longer AND handle it a LOT better!

So after only 3 more trainingssession I must say my body is doing good. =) Thumbs up for that! Today is resting and tomorrow is the Crossfit-competition. I hope my asthma don´t disapoint me because all exercises will effect the cardio (= problems with my asthma). But as I said before- my primare goal is only to be able to COMPLETE it. =)
On saturday there is a small competition here in our city in Portugal. It is kind of crossfit but they call it Scape-fit instead because it is only a comeptition for everyone who is members in the gym here, named Scape.
I have only been training two times the last 5 weeks of different reasons. I tried yesterday to go trough the exercises we are gonna do and even i it is really a small and “easy” competition it is hard for me with my asthma (and the asthma get reeeally bad when I push to much!!). I almost couldn´t breethe yesterday. AND I forgot my asthma-medicine so it was extra hard for me… but today I will relax and tomorrow I will do one more training and at thursday as well. So then I will at least have 4 trainingsessions before the competition in the last 6 weeks.. Haha! =P But my goal is to just complete it on saturday. Without fall apart without breething! 😉 So health and body before number one at the pricepall.
But of course- I have a competition-mind so if I would get number one- of course I would prefere and appreciate that! So we will see how it goes… I will keep you updated!
A few years ago I saw crossfit and since then I´ve always wanted to try but I never did. Of seweral reasons. But the more I see it and hear about it my “reasons-of-not-to-go” starts to get further back in my head and my interest for it starts to get “first in line”…
So now, here I am, looking everywhere for crossfit-inspiration on internet, youtube, websites, photos and my own thougths that I think that my body actually could be really good at it at the same time I think that would motivate me to train more in a way that my body needs. As long as I really listen to it, do it with 100% techniques and so on, it will be great! Only thing is if my d*mn asthma will be a problem for me…?
One of the Crossfit-clubs in Sweden (gothenburg) that is one of the places where I get my inspiration from, is Crossfit Göta. And the guys who has it, specially Marcus, has inspired me more than he think since we worked at the same gym- Fysiken. There he workes as a Personal Trainer (and he is awesome!) and with crossfit etc. Hopefully I will get to go there for a class with them now when I will be in Sweden in february for a few days. =)
