A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Happy Monday! It is cold and raining here (still ugh), but what can ya do. I’m still a little out of it since I ran my first marathon yesterday!!! The whole experience is still so surreal. I won’t get into that today though as I will have a whole post on that coming up with week.
Last week wasn’t filled with much working out. From what I was told countless of times, the week before a marathon is all about the taper. So not much working out and lots of rest days to make sure you are in tip top shape for your run. Even though I love working out, it makes me feel good, and gives me those happy endorphins, I knew I had to cut it way back. I completed 2 workouts all week and felt great for race day! The CrossFit workout I did on Tuesday was tough and I felt sore from that for days, so I knew nothing else was in my future after Wednesday.
Sunday – rest day
Monday – rest day
Tuesday – CrossFit City Limits workout
8×3 front squats @80% of 1RM
burpee box Jump overs (24/20″)
10m shuttle runs
power cleans (~60% of 1RM)
1 set of max unbroken pull-ups
No idea what I used in front squat. Maybe 105…I wasn’t using 80%. I finished the WOD with 255 total reps. The breakdown was 59 burpee box jumps (20″) + 76 shuttle runs + 48 cleans (75#) + 49 wall balls (14#) + 22 pull-ups. I really loved this workout.
Wednesday – track workout
3 rounds of:
200m x 4
1 minute rest after the 200s, with 2 mins before the 400
400m x 1
2-3 minute rest after the 400 before the next round
If you have followed my weekly workouts post for a little while, there is usually a track workout in there. My friends and I get together once a week and do some speed work on the track. Well one of my friends is moving away so this was her last week. I definitely wasn’t going to miss her last one, so I took it pretty easy. And I was super sore from CrossFit the day before. We will miss you Diana! Destination race is definitely happening!
Thursday – rest day – 3 day till my marathon!
Friday – rest day – 2 day till my marathon!
Saturday – rest day – 1 day till my marathon!
Pretty easy week if I do say so myself. Look for my marathon recap coming up this week!
