*New moves from CrossFit!

So yep, Kara called it, with her last post.  I am adding some CrossFit moves, little by little.  I don’t want to scare away our other workout buddies, but I also want to keep improving.

Update: Yep, this was definitely brutal, especially after CrossFit the day before.  I can tell my legs are going to grow some serious muscle from just those two days.  We did some hard work!  I burned 800 calories, according to my trusty heartrate monitor.  Boom!
