Tonight’s workout was good but tiring. It was an all leg workout! We started with a warm up of squats, sit ups, push ups, and jump rope. The WOD was 3 rounds of a 200 Meter Run, 40 Sit Ups, 40 OH Weighted Lunges (I used a 10# weight), and finished up with a 400 Meter Run. I was a little freaked out by all of the running but I was determined to do my best this time and not be so slow.
The first run went really well! I was happy with my speed and wasn’t too terribly out of breath by the time I got to my sit ups. The sit ups on the GHB were pretty good. I love that machine! Once I finished my 40, I moved over and started on my lunges. The lunges tend to hurt my knees, although they weren’t too bad tonight. I just did standing lunges instead of walking lunges. I may try walking lunges next time.
I hit my 40, threw my weight down and headed out the door. My legs weren’t wanting to go very well for the 400 meter run, but I still felt I did pretty good! The hardest part in this whole workout for me was the last 400 meter run that then bled into the 200 meter run…so really, we had a 600 meter run between the sit ups and lunges.
All in all, I finished in 24:43 which was not too far behind the others and ahead of some others. So…I wasn’t last!! Normally my running puts me last because I’m so slow, but I think I did pretty good. Don’t get me wrong, my last run was incredibly slow because I was pooped…but I was happy with the outcome!
Afterward, I tried to do pull ups using the black band. I wasn’t able to pull myself all the way up, but I did get a decent pull. Shane said he would prefer I only be able to go up part way using the band than doing jumping pull ups on the box. So…good by jumping pull ups!
