Crossfit Del Este (San Pedro, Costa Rica)

I haven’t done a proper workout in over 2 months. I knew I was getting rusty- but with all the hiking/running/hauling shit/machete-ing I’ve been doing, I thought I wasn’t terribly out of shape.

I was wrong.

I went to Crossfit Del Este and did my first WOD in Spanish. It was “Angie”. (100 pullups, 100 pushups, 100 situps, 100 squats).

(Funny tidbit) I want to mention that in 3rd-world countries you don’t sign waivers… For anything. (Do you want to sled down a volcano? GO AHEAD! Do you want to join a crossfit class? Come on in! Kinda nice– but a lawyer’s wetdream). They also don’t have the same equipment that we find standard. (like ab-mats, rowing machines or bands).

With this said- they counted down (tres, dos, uno, ya!) and we were off.

19 minutes and 38 seconds later, my hands were torn, I was beyond sweaty/gross, and I hurt everywhere.

It was a great (and much needed) workout and really made me fall back in love with crossfit. Thanks, guys, for helping me through a rough-patch in my week.
