Here we are at Friday again. That means it’s time for a quick rundown of my workouts this week!
You guys know how I love my Friday night crossfit! Well, this was a rough one. I finished in 14:29 and was definitely feelin’ it by the end. I’m still working on those knees to elbows, but I did the best I could!
Best way to kick off a weekend? Saturday morning crossfit! If you’ve never done a squat clean, I’m hear to tell you that they will set your legs on FIRE!!! We set up two barbells so I did 75 pound squat cleans and 115 pound deadlifts. I finished in 7:16.
Rest day. It was flipping freezing, but we bundled up after dinner and took the boys on a quick walk!
I realized that we signed up for a 5k a while ago…and that the race is ummm, next weekend. I literally haven’t run in months. Whoops! We actually had decent weather on Monday so I decided to take the boys for a quick jog before crossfit, just to see how it went. I covered 2.5 miles doing 1/4 mile walk, 1 mile run x 2. And guess what? I felt pretty darn good! Crossfit for the win!
Then we headed to crossfit and I got my ass kicked. 5 rounds of 15 burpees and 10 box jumps after running is no joke. Since the power cleans had to be unbroken, I went light and did 65 pounds to focus on technique. I think i’m finally getting the hang of them! I finished in 10:54.
Any of you crossfitters ever done The Chief? It’s rough. Every round you had to start over with cleans instead of just starting up where you ended after the last 3 minutes. My goal was 4 rounds during each 3 minute set and I did it…but it was HARD. I ended with 20 complete rounds and 37 extra reps…mostly cleans and pushups. For the cleans I did 85 pounds and I definitely gave myself a nice big bruise on my collarbone.
Rest day. I was having a bit of a foot issue on Tuesday and Wednesday that I’m pretty sure was from running those couple miles on Monday in my non-running shoes. Lesson learned. It hurt to walk and is still a bit sore so I’ve been icing it like crazy and trying to avoid jumping on it and things like that.
First, I PR’d in bench press during our strength session! I did 5 reps at 65 pounds! Then we did the workout above. After my success with kipping pullups during Cindy last week, I decided to just go for it and do all kipping pullups during this WOD too, even though I knew it would take me a lot longer than other people. I finished in 7:15 and was so proud of myself. I can only do 2-3 pullups at a time so I had to keep dropping down for a few seconds and then jumping back up, but I did it!
Today’s a rest day and then we’ll be up bright and early to tackle our Saturday morning WOD.
