Can't wait...

I'm one of those people who sits up at night clicking "refresh" on the Crossfit.com site because I just can't WAIT to see what kind of torture awaits me tomorrow. Not really torture... more like SWEATY FUN! :)

I honestly don't know if I'll be this obsessed once the 90 day challenge is over. I mean, I do need to have some balance in my life, but the gains I've made these past few months and the way I feel (other than soreness/tiredness) has definitely kept me motivated the whole way through.

I would really like to see what kind of gains I could make in 6 months or a year. I probably won't be able to sustain this level during football season (college) with all the eating/drinking/tailgating, but that is still months away and gives me plenty of time to push it hard.

I've been thinking about changing the 3 on, 1 off schedule to 5 on, 2 off (to allow for more stuff on the weekends). The weekends are usually when I find my motivation the weakest and also when I usually end up working out late (which I'd like to avoid). I'm not sure if my body could take 5 full out days, though. It would also mean experimenting with my own programming, which I don't really feel comfortable with yet. I guess I need to give this some more thought.

Anyways, with the 90 day challenge almost over (YES!), I'm gathering a list of other goals I want to meet.

Goals after 90 day challenge:
100 Day Burpee Challenge
with CrossFitNRV (continue & complete)
VISIT CrossFit NRV - I'm nervous about this (always have had serious hang-ups about working out around other people... it makes me self-conscious)
Get a damn dead hang pull-up!!
Basics - work on things like squats & oly lifts

I am with you on wanting to do a pull-up. It annoys me that I can't do them.

Best of luck with your burpee challenge!
