Another Week of Workouts

23 Jun

Hi guys!  Anyone else dreading going back to work after a beautiful first weekend of summer?  Yeah…me too.  So on that note, let’s recap last week’s workouts:

Monday 6/16: CrossFit.  The WOD was 4 sets of:

3 minutes to complete: 200m run, then AMRAP of 5 Thrusters and 5 Box Jumps

Rest 6 min and repeat

Score highest and lowest number of reps:  31 and 26.

Tuesday 6/17: 4 easy miles.  It was hot and I did not want to run, but running buddy Beth made me get out there!  I didn’t get myself out the door until about 8pm, but as usual, I’m glad I got it done.

Wednesday 6/18: CrossFit.  Running, wall balls, pull-ups, burpees and toes to bar.  Come onnnnn!  But I just took it one movement at a time and got through it in .  But seriously, this workout was awful.  I finished in 28:10 and managed to make an awesome sweat angel:


Thursday 6/19:  We did a partner WOD, but had to partner with someone we didn’t already know.  Bummer for me and CF buddy Liz!  I was partnered up with one of the more experienced guys at our box and he was a total rockstar.  He RXed the workout (translation: did it at the prescribed weight) and still had energy to push me the whole time.

In teams of 2 complete:

1 mile run (400m increments each)

60 Shoulder to overhead (10 rep increments each)

1 mile run (400m increments each)

60 front squats (10 rep increments each)

1 mile run (400m increments each)

I did the WOD using the 35lb barbell only and busted my ass on those runs.  Woof.  We finished in 26:34 and I’m pretty happy with that.

Friday 6/20: REST! Much needed rest.

Saturday 6/21: I had plans for a “long” run for Saturday, but to be honest..I just didn’t want to wake up early to get it done in order to beat the heat.  So I opted to go to Crossfit.  I actually had high hopes of adding a few easy miles after the WOD, until I saw what it was….

It was set up in 5 stations:

  1. 10min AMRAP: 10 box jumps (20″ box) and 10 v-ups
  2. 10min AMRAP: 200m row and 200m run
  3. 10min AMRAP: 10 knees-to-elbows and 16 jumping lunges
  4. 10min AMRAP: 10 wallballs (12lb ball for me) and 5 burpees
  5. 10min to find max clean and jerk weight (75lb for me)

Sunday 6/22: Rest.  And catching up with most of my favorite runner ladies at the pool.  Awesome day!

How were your workouts this week?  Did you get up early to beat the heat?  Tell me about it.

    Runs were super hot this week (Live in Alabama) and not proud of how many times I had to stop under the shade. Probably need to wake up and run at 6 in the morning, but I just can’t make myself!
    Awesome job on all that fitness! Whoop whoop high five!

      No shame in stopping in the shade! I’m sure it’s much worse in Alabama than up in NY! 🙂

    Looks like a great week! I wish I would have gotten up early to beat the heat yesterday but I had to take advantage of my son’s naptime. I was a sweaty mess by the end of it!!

      Sometimes I like the sweaty workouts! And you definitely need to fit it in when you can with the kiddos! 🙂
