Get to know….Linda T.!

How long have you been a CrossFitter?
6 months

What is your previous sports/fitness background?
Running

What is your favorite CrossFit WOD?
Annie

Least Favorite?
Karen! I remember my first experience (pain and soreness) with wallballs…and it was only 20. I have not tried 150 wallballs yet, but I can only guess Karen will kick my butt.

Your Fran time?
I don’t remember 🙂

What athlete (CrossFit or otherwise) do you admire most and why?
Lokelani McMichael: She finished her first Ironman Triathlon when she was 18, becoming the youngest woman who finished an Ironman. She an accomplished athlete, surfer, model, and gorgeous.

What do you hope to accomplish by doing CrossFit?
I want to meet Crossfit’s first fitness standards in general physical skills. I want to continue to my improve overall fitness and perfect my olympic lifts.

Do you train for a specific purpose (ie, another sport)?
I have been training for marathons for about 2 years. Training is pretty addicting–or maybe that’s just my personality

What are your CrossFit goals?
Goals are: to do 30 double unders, a muscle up, 10 pull ups without band, pull up to chest, L-sit ups, 15 ring dips, 15 pistols, handstand push up at level 0, to do all the lifts correctly, be able to use 20 lb wallball, finish first during a WOD one day

Do you paleo or zone?
I have read the book, Paleo Solution. 80/20 rule.. 80% carbs/20% Paleo right now. Gotta start somewhere.

Would you rather do 100 burpees, 100 pullups or 100 squats?
100 squats since I do have the advantage of being lower to the ground.

What do you do when you are not at CrossFit?
You can find me training, working, taking seminars, traveling, and most of the time eating

Lifting shoes of Vibram five fingers?
Vibram five fingers, especially after a race. My feet love them.

What do you do for warmup?
Before I do a Crossfit WOD, I am usually warmed up (and wet) from running and swimming.

What do you do for recovery? How often do you take rest days?
I love chocolate milk and 20 minute nap for recovery if I have the luxury. I take about 1 day a week off (if it’s on the schedule).

What is the best piece of advice you’d give a new CrossFitter?
You may leave the gym feeling like you got crushed into a thousand pieces. Come back the next day and do it again. Only this time, you’re stronger and better.

What CrossFit certs have you been to or hope to go to?
I haven’t been just yet.

If you could have dinner with three CrossFit all-stars, who would it be?
Not just three, but I would have dinner Annie, the fittest woman on earth, and all of CF7 people.

What do you like best about CrossFit Seven?
The people and their amazing athletic abilities inside this box. Everyday I come, I am motivated and inspired by the members. I love the support and encouragement that everyone gives and provides to help all of us improve all the competencies.

Any other information you would like the world to know???
I am not the fastest runner or the strongest athlete, but sleeping was a sport, I would place…first! If I’m not in constant motion, I’m ZzzZ and out..

    Great interview Linda T!! Linda taught me a breathing skill and it has improved my running/time….sounds a bit like a birthing technique while giving labor, but avoids stitch in side. Has increased my speed slightly, but still won’t post my time from today. I did finish though w/no stitch in sideI
