I know this is coming to you a little later in the day but I had a small road trip to take.
I’m currently hanging out with my folks and my grandma. :)
There’s lots to do so I’ll get right to it.
This week of workouts was pretty awesome!
It was a holiday. And I didn’t have to work. And Thing 2 was getting her teeth extracted the next day. So,
I took a rest day and hung out with her and went out for Indian food.
AM Garage workout
Started my morning off with a 1 mile run. Yep, that’s right. A RUN!
I know I ran last week but this was my first morning run. It was blissful! And short. And my Garmin didn’t
record it, for some reason. But still, I ran!!
Then, I hopped on the elliptical for a 30 minute workout.
Thing 2 is getting her wisdom teeth out today and I’m definitely nervous for her. I know it’ll be fine – people get their wisdom teeth taken out every day but still. She’s my baby – even if she’s not so little anymore.
No CrossFit today because I was making sure she had everything she needed.
Man, I don’t think I ate enough today! Or, maybe it’s because I hadn’t been at the box in 5 days.
Whatever it was, this workout kicked my booty!
Coach had us play a little game on the rower as a warm-up. We had to try to row exactly 100m. If you’ve
ever rowed before, you know that’s no easy task. I got close each time (102, 102, 101, 102) but no cigar.
There was mention of “punishment” (read: burpees) for however much you went over/under (my total
was +7) but thankfully, nothing came of it. Phew!
Then, we got down to business.
There aren’t enough rowers so we had to split up the class. I started with the rower group while the
others started on the double unders.
Man, this part really kicked my butt! By the time round 3 came along, I was giving serious consideration
to stepping over the rower rather than jumping it. My legs were like lead!! But, I still jumped. I finished a
full 3 rounds and was on the 5th burpee in the 4th round when time was called.
That 5 minute rest was the best thing ever!
Next up were the double unders. :/
Man, I haven’t jumped since before the boot and I didn’t have double unders then at all. Coach wanted
attempts but I quickly realized that it would take me all day. So, I did 60 singles instead.
Apparently, I need work on my singles – or – I was a little afraid to do too much jumping because I
missed a little more frequently than normal. It’s fine. I’ll get back there. #patiencegrasshopper
I squeaked out 4 complete rounds and was 4 toes-to-bar into the 5th
I was so glad when this workout was over!
2 MILE RUN!!!
It felt really good and the weather was just perfect! I even managed to zone out a little and didn’t see
the person walking her dog. Ooops!
Then, I was blessed to see this on my way to CrossFit.
I love where I live!!
I love workouts that are just body-weight movements!
But, I didn’t really love this one.
Just kidding. Actually, it was kinda fun for as much as it sucked!
It was a 20 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) of an ascending ladder of pull ups, sit ups, and
push ups – 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, …. etc
Basically, you do 3 pull ups, 3 sit ups, 3 push ups, then 6 pull ups, 6 sit ups, 6 push ups, 9 pull ups, 9 sit
ups, 9 push ups, etc until the 20 minutes is up. Your score is whatever number you actually completed. I
got through 21.
I was seriously pushing out my last few push ups as the clock was counting down!
I kipped ALL the pull ups!
Which, if you’re interested, totaled 84.
Yep, 84 pull ups, 84 sit ups, and 84 push ups.
I did about a third of the push ups regular and the rest I did on my knees because I was seriously losing
Hey, what can I say? I was working my muscles pretty hard!
We did Atlas Stone skill work to start.
I’ve never worked with the Atlas Stones.
Basically, we’re just picking up heavy rocks. Haha!
The lighter stones didn’t have weights written on them but I think the one I worked with was about 50# or so.
I tried to pick up the one in between that one and the one that was marked 110# but I couldn’t even lift it off the ground.
Which, honestly, kinda boggled me. Because I can deadlift 200#. Why couldn’t I pick up that stupid stone?!?! lol
It was kinda fun, though. :)
Then, the WOD.
Holy. Rowing. Hell.
20 Minute EMOM (every minute on the minute) row for distance with a partner.
Basically, it was a sprint row.
Spring for 1 minute and switch. For 20 minutes.
I normally enjoy rowing but this sucked bad.
I reached the “I’m going to die” feeling right before coach yelled “10 seconds” each time. So Hard!!
My partner and I rowed 4514m.
I had originally planned on sleeping in.
Because I was tired.
But, I got up and ran anyway.
The draw of the road was too much. :)
Talk to me: How was your week? Do any new workouts?
