Thursday was a good workout. I was extremely happy with my results and finally felt like I’d accomplished something!
Weighted Push Ups
3(25#) x 3(35#) x 3(50#)
4 Rounds of as many reps as possible
1 Min Burpees
1 Min GHD Sit Ups
1 Min SDHP (45#, RX)
1 Min Ring Dips (Green band)
1 Min Rest
Rd 1: 67, Rd 2: 60, Rd 3: 60, Rd 4: 60
Well, I’m nothing if not consistent! The ring dips are by far the most difficult for me right now since I have weak triceps. The burpees sucked but they weren’t too bad! I slammed down pretty hard a couple of times on the first round. On rounds 2-4 I did the step back instead of the jump. I averaged about 10 burpees per round but was able to make up the numbers on the SDHP. That was my strongest round.
Saturday we didn’t have our run because Clara and Kelly had previous engagements. We moved it to Sunday instead. Clara was shooting her box’s teams a CrossFit competition called Fall Brewses. Since it was in the same area as a party I had to go to later that same day (just about a mile or 2 away) I decided to stop by and check it out. They were ahead of schedule, so I got there just as they started the last WOD:
50 cumulative rep “Bear Complex” 95/65
Cash in – 30 double-unders (before athlete touches bar) Cash out – 10 burpees (as soon as the athlete leaves the bar) Caveat – before the relieving athlete begins double-unders the team must complete inter- locked (arms) team sit-ups equivalent to the total number of reps completed of Bear Complex.
Yeah…it was brutal! Needless to say, I was glad not to be one of them. Especially since the burpees and sit ups were done on cement. Clara and Kelly’s box, CrossFit Point Break, came in first! Way to go everyone. Don’t ask me about the pink because I just don’t know!
Sunday was our big run. We met up at 6:30 and got in almost 6 miles.
It was cloudy, which made the temp quite nice! As soon as I made it back to my car it started raining pretty good. So, we had perfect timing! I started the first mile with 1/1 run/walk intervals but ended up doing 2/1 intervals for miles 2-6. My hips started hurting about 3 miles into the run. I’m pretty sure it’s because I hopped into a 6 mile run after being off for 3 weeks instead of working up to that distance. I felt like I could probably keep going, as I wasn’t tired. That’s good news because my 10 mile race will be coming up before too long! Next week I’m going to do 3/2 intervals and hope that I can work up my endurance. Clara and Kelly’s CrossFit box is having a running clinic on Oct. 1st where they’ll be training us on the Pose run method and going through drills and whatnot. I went ahead and signed up for that today. I’ve read a lot about Pose but just can’t seem to get it right on my own. So…we’ll see what they can teach me. OHHH…I also had a non-blister run yesterday! For those of you that know me, that is almost unheard of at this distance. I think I may have found the “magic socks” as Clara puts it. This also has me thinking I should go ahead and try to do the marathon instead of the 1/2. My real concern was blisters (well, that and being afraid I wouldn’t finish!). I didn’t want to have blisters all over my feet because of the marathon so I was going to drop down to a 1/2. We’ll see how training goes from here on out. I’ll keep you up to date!
How was your weekend?
