New CrossFit Shoes!

It’s always a happy mail day when I get new CrossFit gear or new shoes. It’s doubly wonderful when it’s both! On Tuesday afternoon my early Christmas gift to myself arrived…Reebok CrossFit Nanos. I think at $109 they may be the most expensive shoes I have ever bought (not on sale). I really, really wanted to try some on before purchasing since I am notoriously hard to fit where shoes are concerned. I have super wide feet. After reading the reviews on the Reebok site I saw that many customers claim the Nano 2.0 fits wider than average (good news for me) and is smaller in length. Many reviewers advised that purchasing a  half size up was the route to go. Since I really like some wiggle room in the toes and wanted to ensure a wide width I ordered a full size up (a 9.5). They fit PERFECT!

Sadly I couldn’t try them out the next morning because my throat was really bugging me. I opted to stay home and rest. Today I got to take them for a test drive. So far I am really, really enjoying them. Dare I say my squat form improved just by changing shoes?? Can’t wait to see where these babies take me. :)

The workout below was actually my bizarre creation. The WOD called for ring dips or box dips but for some reason I decided to have a brain meltdown and substitute ring dips for pushups and then do box dips too. No one even said anything so I did 10 rounds + of the wrong series. Oh well. ;)

Warmup: 3  rounds

400 meter row
1:00 bar hang or banded arms
5 dynamic burpees
10 pushups
15 squats
1:00 bully or arm extensions on rings
50 flutterkicks

Test: Max burpees in a minute (judged): I did 17 (meh)

WOD: 5 rounds AMRAP – 1:00 rest between rounds

10 ring dips (was supposed to be pushups)
10 ring rows
10 box dips

 

Breakfast: Steak / Greek Yogurt / Vita Coco Cocout Water
Lunch: Apple w/Peanut Butter / Greek Yogurt / Paleo Banana Zucchini Bread
Dinner: Pot Roast with Sauerkraut and Green Beans
