Last night Matt and I went to our final class at CrossFit Dupont! I’m sad to say they will be closing their doors at the end of the week – they’re in the heart of Dupont Circle and I guess their lease was up and they weren’t able to renew for a reasonable rate. Bummer! They had a big crowd for every class we went to so I’m sure a lot of others are disappointed, too.
I leave for UNC later today so we wanted to make sure to get in one last class before they close up shop. Last night it was! It was a fun, hard workout – I’m glad we went. Good last hurrah!
We did a bunch of good stretches and then worked on squats. I’m still working on shoulder mobility so I just used the 45 lb barbell. I’m happy to say I’m getting better – my form is definitely improving! Hopefully soon I can start doing a little more weight.
After squats, it was time for the workout!
Complete 2 rounds for time:
- 50 Dumbbell Push Press (I used 15 lb. dumbbells)
- 15 Broad Jumps
The kicker, though, was that anytime you needed to take a break from the dumbbell push presses, you had to do 5 burpees before you could rest. This was a HARD workout! I usually ended up doing 10 to 15 push presses before taking a break.
Thanks for the great workouts, CrossFit Dupont! Matt and I will miss you. We both want to keep doing CrossFit a couple times a week, so I think we’re going to look into Arlington area CrossFit boxes. If any of you locals know any good ones, please share!
As for today, I got in a great 4.5 mile run this morning with some friends and now I’m gearing up for the drive down to Chapel Hill, NC! If you’re just checking in, I’m finishing up a Masters of Public Health at UNC-Chapel Hill (was doing dietetic internships up here in the DC area since finishing coursework in May) and this week my classmates and I are all convening at school again to present our masters papers! I can’t believe after 3.5 years my journey to become an RD and get my masters is almost over. The only thing remaining after I’m done with school will be to take the RD exam in late January!
I just enjoyed some Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal (click for recipe – one of my faves!) and now I’m off to practice my masters paper presentation a few times and finish packing up. After lunch, I’m hitting the road! Excited to be back in my old stomping grounds again.
Have a great day everyone and I’ll catch you later from North Carolina!
