Just popping in with a quick post about my run this morning and a recap of last week’s workouts.
In general, it was a good week of workouts, minus a small overuse injury. I had some knee pain and soreness after my 11-mile run on Tuesday, so I took it easy with running for the rest of the week to give it a little break. The time off was exactly what I needed because I ran 4 miles this morning, and it seems to be good as new!
Sunday: 3 miles + CrossFit
We originally drew up the workout below, but then we ended up subbing ring rows (pulling) for HSPUs (since we had a lot of pushing movements). It took us close to 18 minutes to finish, but we weren’t going all out. I even stopped to drink water a couple of times, which is something I never do during a WOD. Hey, it was Sunday.
Tuesday: 11 miles
Wednesday’s WOD was short and sweet painful. It was definitely a quad smoker! I did 5 rounds Rx.
Friday’s CrossFit WOD was a fun one! It included a variety of movements– a couple of which I really needed to practice– so it was nice to try them in a WOD. The HSPUs really slowed me down (I was doing them one at a time), but I am glad that I got to work on them. I ended up finishing in 12:25.
Saturday: 4 miles
I ended up waking up pretty sore after yesterday’s CrossFit workout, so I cut my scheduled 8-miler in half and ran 4 miles instead. We did weighted Good Mornings the day before, so my hamstrings were incredibly tight. Plus, I didn’t want to push my luck with my knee, so I went for a nice, easy, and very enjoyable run around Newport.
I ran on the Cliff Walk this morning, and it was so beautiful! It’s definitely one of the prettiest runs I have ever experienced.
My run included a little bit of stair-running too!
