Training week 1 recap: June 22-28

Monday- off

Tuesday- 4 miles

Wednesday- off

Thursday- 4 miles

Friday- off

Saturday- 10 miles

* I planned to do 9 on saturday but I just really wanted to get to 10 to prove something to myself? I weirdly have no self control in regards to distance, I’ll run super slow for so long to just hit distance marks. I need to start doing speed work cause man am I slow right now

Workout Recap Wrapping up February

SO I didn’t follow through on this.. There was a lot of snow and ice this month that prevented me from getting out to run.   And honestly I love recapping my runs but not so much cycling classes.  I spent last week getting trained on something new in the lab which took a ton of time and cut into my morning run time also.  But the weather is warming up and the snow is melting so I should be able to get out at least 1-2 times a week from now forward! Which combined with 2-3 days of cycling is fine with me! I did keep up with going to Cycling every Tuesday and Thursday!

I've been spending a lot of time with these bikes

Workout Recap Week of Feb 2nd

Workout Recap Week of Feb 2nd:

Sun- 4 miles

Mon- rest

Tues- cycling

Weds- cycling (bc snow)

Thurs- cycling

Friday- Elliptical (45 mins)

My goal was to run Sunday, Wednesday, Friday and go to cycling on Tuesday and Thursday for the morning class.  But the snow on Wednesday forced me inside and Friday it was cold and I just wasn’t feeling it.. my calves are pretty sore from 3 days of cycling in a row.. So I took it inside to the gym and ellipticall’ed it up.  I haven’t used an elliptical since… like spring semester of last year? So it wasn’t as easy as I remember! BUT, I can tell I’m getting better at cycling.

My Week as a Crossfitter

W.O.D.3.8.13

5 Rounds for time of:

400 Meter Run

50 Kettlebell Swings (35/55#)

Results:

25:00

Warm up was some rowing followed by an obstacle course of ladders, burpees, sprinting, bear crawls, and high-knee skips

Reflection: This was my favorite workout yet! The warm up was pretty tough and I was out of breath.  The workout I scaled to 26 lb russian kettlebells.  I loved the running and getting outside in the snow.  Happy with completing everything fully and getting a good time!

W.O.D.3.7.13

AMRAP in 12 Minutes

12 Toes toe Bar

12 Box Jumps (20/24″)

12 Deadlifts (155/225#)

Results:

 400 m run warm up outside followed by high-knees, butt-kicks, bear craws

I completed exactly four rounds of the WOD in 12 minutes with a 13 inch box and 45 lbs.

Reflection: Light warm up. I should challenge myself with a higher box next time, I’m just weird about doing jumps.  Toes to bar I could do well for the first few but then got too tired by 9.  I changed deadlifts to sumo position.

“Diane”

Deadlift

Handstand Push up

Results:

7:30 63 2ab

We warmed up with a 400 jog outside and dodgeball

Cash-out was 8 sets of 20 second planks [completed successfully]

Reflection: I did fine deadlifting.  The Handstand pushups were pretty tough, I wasn’t able to bend my arms all the way to get my head to the ground and should have scaled down.
