A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
What a glorious week last week was!! I had some great workouts and some plans for myself to start a little side business. First and most importantly, we finally did 20 miles!! Wahoo!! If you look at that map above, it looks like a defined area for an uber or food delivery map. Well nope, it’s just the route we ran. All the way from downtown to North Austin, it was pretty legit. The run felt great and I am finally starting to feel like I can do this marathon! One month till go time!
I was also approached about making meals for someone. The thought has crossed my mind a few times, but I just never really knew how to start or go about it. Well now that someone asked me, there is no better time than now! I am super excited to start! If you are passionate enough about something, it will find a way to work and I believe I can definitely turn this into something!
Sunday – CrossFit WOD
squat cleans (115/75)
shoulder to overhead
bar facing burpees
I finished in 15:16 using 55#. See video here.
Monday – training run
5 miles @ 7:55 pace
Tuesday – CrossFit WOD
50 burpee box jumps (24″/20″) – every :45, 1 clean & jerk (135/95)
70 calorie row – every 1:00, 1 clean & jerk (155/105)
50 pull-ups – every 1:45, 1 clean & jerk (185/135)
I believe this WOD was modified from the main site (or somewhere else well known). It was definitely tough, especially the first two movements. I used 85, 95, and 105#. We capped it at a certain amount of rounds so people weren’t working forever. I think I finished the burpees in 8 rounds, rowing in 7 rounds, and pull-ups in 3 rounds.
Wednesday – track workout
200m run/200 jog x 4
100m sprint/100m jog (sprint the curves in the track) x 8
100m sprint/100m jog (sprint the straightaways in the track) x 8
total of 3 miles
Thursday – training run
20 miles @ 8:25 pace!! Finally a good long run.
Friday – rest day
Saturday – rest day
I had a 10 mile run on Sunday and wanted to be well rested for that, so 2 rest days in a row was necessary!
