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. =)
Some days, like today, you should stay home from the training. I thought I would feel better in the gym than the other two trainings I did last week (wich ones was the first since 5-6 weeks) but I was wrong: I almost vomit and I was dissy. Everything was blurry and my stomach was not so good. I did only one round without stop (but split up) with 20 jumping to the box, 55 push-ups, 65 squats and 40 burpees, 500 meters row x 3 and then stretching. After this I was like dead! I dont understand… =/ My asthma was worse today as well. And. I still dont find my asthma-medicine!!! =S
Yes, I can sit here and say “It was good that I aleast did SOME training” but I feel now that this was one of the days I loosed more than I developed. And my self-confidence was lower today after the training. And I got more pain in my body. And I felt weak and bad. But I know it will pass. And I learned even more about myself today, with my limits and more. That was good. Sooo, now after this blogpost I actually realized that this was probably worth it anyway. Haha, good! =P
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!
Yesterday I took Tiago for a walk in the city becuase at home we had something secret going on at home. When we arrived home there was a surprise party for his birthday with his closest childhood-friends! Guess if he got happy and surprised! His mother Maria did a lot of cakes and desserts, meat and bread, wine and other things to drink and eat. Happy birthday again baby! ❤
The night before my grandma went back to Sweden after visiting me 3 weeks in portugal we went to the Tasquinhas in Rio Major. We ate on a cute and typical portugues restaurant and had a great night. Some photos from the evening. ❤
