It’s an “easy” day my a…

Saturday I met the ladies at Town Market Square and got 3.75 miles in. I wore my new vibrams with the hopes that they’d help with blisters.

Nope….didn’t work. I felt them starting about 2 1/2 miles in. I’m a little bummed, but it may just be that I didn’t let my feet get use to them? I got blisters on the balls of both feet and on the heel of one. I’ll keep wearing them and see if maybe it gets better.

Today was supposed to be an easy day at CrossFit. While it looked pretty easy, it actually kicked my butt pretty good.

We started with 50 Double Unders/200 singles. I did the singles since I can’t do DUs. After about 25 of them I kept hitting my legs with the rope. Guess my rhythm was just off. So, I threw the jump rope to the side and just did it without the rope. As soon as we finished the 200 jumps we started our rounds.

WOD:
3 rounds
10 Pull Ups (green band)
20 Push Ups
30 Sit Ups
40 Squats
Rest for 1 minute
Finished 19:40

My pull ups were pretty good. The hardest for me today was the squats. My quads started burning pretty quick on. It wasn’t the hardest workout I’ve done, but it was still hard!  Tomorrow and Wednesday we’re supposed to be doing strength and body weight benchmark tests. While I normally try to go Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, I think I’ll go Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Weigh in was Sunday…I’m back down to 199.7. Finally back down below 200…now, to keep going. Want to get below 196 and into the 180’s. 196 is the lowest I’ve gotten since starting crossfit.

 

Get It, Girl!

5 Rounds:
15 Front Squats (65#)
10 Knees to Elbows
60 Jump Rope

Owwwww…ch. Today’s workout was tough. I wasn’t sure how much weight to use on the front Squats but 45# was too light so I upped it to 65#. My last couple of rounds of front squats were hard. I wasn’t going as low as I was to begin with, but I didn’t drop the weight.

Now, the jump ropes were not fun! My feet started cramping on the last two rounds. I have a feeling my calves are going to hurt tomorrow! I finished in 15:35. Shane came up to me and asked if I was mad at him, I told him no but I guess I looked pissed when I finished. He then told me “just think you can tell your husband you beat a 14 year old and was doing more weight too!” LOL…not sure that’s something to brag about! This was the same kid from yesterday asking how we were able to lift that much weight. Hahaha…hear me roar!
