A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Happy happy Monday! How was your weekend? We kept it low key and didn’t much of anything. Michael had his company’s holiday party last Thursday and then we chilled the rest of the weekend. JMU played on Saturday and is going to the National Championship game again! They won last year so hoping to make it a repeat this year!
I’m still trying to listen to my body, keep my stress levels down, and have my workouts not be as intense. And lately my body just doesn’t feel like working out much at all. I don’t if it’s the cold weather or if it is just trying to tell me something, but my workouts have been pretty scattered lately.
If I were to look at my workout schedule from last week a few years ago (or hell even a few months ago), I probably would have a little freak out. Why am I not working out 5-6 days a week and taking so many rest days?! It honestly still kinds of weirds me out not working out as much.
But my body needs a rest and I am trying to honor that. I am still trying to move my body a few days a week, but maybe not as intense as before. I am lowering my weights some in my workouts and focusing on doing the movements properly and not trying to get the fastest time ever.
Hoping after a few weeks of this that I’ll be ready to hit it hard again.
Sunday – Ro Fitness
HIIT class mixed with rowing and bodyweight movements
Monday – rest
Tuesday – CrossFit City Limits workout
10 x 2:00 rounds
odd rounds: 10/7 calorie assault bike sprints
even rounds: 10/7 calorie row sprints
*rest during remaining time in each round
I did all rounds prescribed. This workout is a lot harder than it looks. The goal is to go as fast as you possibly can for those calories.
Wednesday – CrossFit City Limits workout
for time with a 10:00 cap:
12-9-6 squat snatch (165/115/60% of 1RM)
12-9-6 strict ring dips
I finished 8:54 using 65# – these movements are probably my least favorite
Thursday – rest
Friday – rest
Saturday – CrossFit City Limits open gym (did the workout from Monday)
15 back squats (185/135/65% of OHS)
18 front squats
21 OH squats
*use the same weight for all barbell movements
I finished in 12:35 using 65#
