Athlete: Elizabeth Gregory
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat "Paleo" for the most part, except Splenda in my coffee, the occasional diet pop, blue cheese on my salads, and cooked lima beans.
How I Train
I workout mostly at home, work, or a traditional gym
I incorporate CrossFit.com workouts
I write my own programming
I record my workouts
I try to do the CrossFit.com workouts whenever I'm able to with the limited equipment available at my local gym. If the gym doesn't have the equipment I need, I'll substitute an exercise or do something that involves the same muscle groups as the RX workout. I also do yoga at home in the mornings.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I played college sports
I swam competitively through elementary, high school, and college. I was a personal trainer for two years after graduating college. I competed in Muay Thai kickboxing for four years. I discovered the amazing world of CrossFit about a year ago.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I started doing CrossFit at CrossFIt Omaha about a year ago. I then moved to a town where the closest Box is 2.5 hours away. Since moving I have been doing the wod's on my own at the local gym. I drop in at the CFO box whenever I'm back in Omaha.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I do yoga every morning, thought I don't consider that a "workout". I do my main workout every evening. Mentally I don't like "rest" days, so scheduling them is a struggle for me. However, I do try to take one day per week off and only do yoga on that day.
