My First Cross Fit Class

So, yesterday I attended my first CrossFit class at SMCF, the Box that I took fundamentals. I was a little disappointed that the WOD wasn't for Boston, but they did it because 2 of their members are moving to DC. I knew that the WOD was going to have to be scaled for me...but I made sure to remind Brad the owner that this was my first class. (Cue the nerves). Of course, what skill did they work on today, DU (double unders; which require jump roping, and umm yeah, I haven't done that in a long time) and the clean and jerk. The clean and jerk is an Olympic move, and they tell me that it takes many people years to master it...I have a feeling I am going to be one of those people. I just can't connect the pieces...but, I will keep trying.
Here is what it should look like....

Anyway, here is the WOD as RX....

Call Me Maybe’

Clean and Jerk
for time
50 DUs
20 Clean and Jerks 135/95
20 Box Jumps 30/24
50 DUs
10 CnJs
10 BJs
50 DUs
5 CnJs
5 BJs
50 DUs
Brad was so kind as to scale it for me, it was still for time...
30 single jump ropes
20 clean and jerks (with bar)
10 box jumps (18" box)

30 single jump ropes
10 clean and jerks (with bar)
10 box jumps

30 single jump ropes
5 clean and jerks (with bar)
10 box jumps (18" box)

30 single jump ropes
It took me 9 min and 40 seconds. Should it have, probably not. My arch-nemesis was those darn clean and jerks. It took me FOREVER to do them EVERY rotation, and I wonder if it is bc I thought about it too much.

Anyway, I have a feeling that not picking it up right away is going to be my biggest issue...I just have to trust the process and know that in time it will come. I will try to post later on Fundamentals II.
