A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Back in the swing of working out and man it feels pretty awesome! Last week I hit up 3 days of CrossFit in a row and did a track workout and went for a long(ish) run. Not going to lie, I was beat by Thursday and my rest day was much needed, but it felt great to be back into the swing of things after a long hiatus of a normal workout routine.
With marathon training officially starting, I can’t really mess around with working out anymore. If I was running a half marathon, sure. But 26.2 miles is a long freakin way and it is definitely something you need to train for. Especially if you have goals for hitting a certain time. I’m not as in good of shape as I was when I started to train for my first marathon, so I know I need to put in more work this time around. It’s going to be tough, but I’m up for the challenge.
One thing that definitely helped with hitting my workouts was making a plan for the week. I know I want to do 2-3 CrossFit workouts a week, one track workout, one long run, and then one HIIT treadmill interval class with 2 rest days. Making my schedule on Sunday helped a lot with making sure I got to my workouts and accomplished what I needed to do. Also having an accountability buddy. I am training with my friend so I can’t back out of our runs!
Sunday – rest day
Monday – CrossFit City Limits
10RM front squat
10 power cleans (135/95/40%)
I worked up to 115# in my squat and got 4+15
Tuesday – CrossFit City Limits
:30 jump rope
:30 pull-up practice
DB snatch (50/35/light-medium)
15 burpee box jump-overs (24″/20″/low)
I finished in 19:15 using 25#. Slower and a lighter weight than 2 years ago, but what can you do.
Wednesday – CrossFit City Limits
I finished in 15:00, but messed up the workout. I did pull-ups then burpees when I came in from the run instead of burpees then pull-ups. It definitely changed the way it should have felt.
Thursday – rest day
Friday – track workout
2 x 1200m
2 x 800m
4 x 400m
*we walked 400m in-between
Saturday – long run
5 miles at an 8:05 pace. This was tough for me and we had to stop 2 times cause I was dying.
