• Last Week’s Workouts {30 Weeks}

    March 29, 2014

    Last week was actually a pretty low-key week on the workout front. No reason really. I actually felt pretty good, pregnancy-wise. I just felt like taking it easy a little more than usual. Maybe that’s all part of the third trimester? I have no idea, but I’m just going with it. That said, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts!

    Sunday: Off

    Monday: CrossFit

    Monday’s WOD was a lot harder than I thought it would be. The goblet squats burned my quads so bad, especially after the first 30-calorie row! I finished in 11:53 Rx.

    Tuesday: CrossFit

    I almost skipped Tuesday’s workout because there were so many movements that I couldn’t do, but I knew my coaches would have lots of modifications, especially for the rope climbs and handstand push-ups, so it ended up being no problem at all.

    “Goliath”

    For time:
    100 Double Unders

    Then 3 rounds of:
    3 Rope Climbs
    10 Burpee Box Jumps (24, 20)

    Then 100 Double Unders

    Then 2 rounds of:
    20 Handstand Push ups
    20 Ground-to-Overhead w/a plate (45, 25)

    Then 100 Double Unders

    The modified workout that I did:

    For time:

    50 Double Unders

    Then 3 rounds of:
    10 Strict Pull-ups (with a band)
    10 Burpee Box Jumps

    Then 50 Double Unders

    Then 2 rounds of:
    20 Push-ups (with a band)
    20 G2OH w/ a plate (25 pounds)

    Then 50 Double Unders

    It was still a really challenging workout, and I finished in just over 15 minutes.

    Wednesday: Off

    Thursday: FlyWheel + 60-minute pug walk

    Your workouts are awesome, especially for 3rd trimester. This was my first week back at the gym since baby so I am pretty sore today thanks to activating my muscles again haha. Dead-lifts will always wake your muscles up!

    I love FlyWheel! I’ve gone twice, and I’m planning on a third trip this week. Your Monday WOD looks so innocent, but those goblet squats are always good for a nice burn :) So inspired by all of your +1 workouts. I crashed and burned today on 14.5, reading blogs and scheduling my workouts for the week to avoid feeling sorry for myself.

    It wasn’t NEW, per se, but I ran eight miles today (furthest distance in a LONG time) at a great (for me) pace. It felt AWESOME!

    I did a restoritive yoga this morning that was unreal! What a great way to start the weekend! So jealous that you have a flywheel near by. We don’t have any popular spin places by us!

    I swam a ton this week & my times were best yet! I’m thinking about training for a triathalon. I have a group of friends through my spin class who are in a Tri team and want me to join.

    Good morning Tina,

    I still haven’t tried Crossfit and really want to. Last week I taught two cardio (Les Mills BODYATTACK) and four resistance (Les Mills BODYPUMP) classes, all of which require me to do to the workout with the class. I also did yoga twice.

    One of the new things I tried was a Strala STRONG yoga at Sports Club LA San Francisco, which is a new free-flowing and fun yoga class. You’ve got to check it out if you get the chance, because it’s definitely different than the normal yoga class. I wrote a review about it, if you want to check it out. http://aladygoeswest.com/2014/03/25/strala-strong-yoga-at-sports-club-la/

    Have a great Sunday!
    Ashley

    I was thinking Monday’s WOD doesn’t look that bad…I’m sure it’ll kick my butt though. ;)

    Workouts last week were scaled down because I was sick. I didn’t even feel like working out, so you know that’s a sign you shouldn’t. You’re still getting in a great amount and intensity! It sounds like you’re listening to your body, which is great. Keep it up!

    Wow that second WOD looked like a killer! Hand stand push ups are not my strength right now and I just did Diane a few days ago! Awesome job on modifying all the movements!

    I’ve been focusing on arm work since it’s about all I can do now while my foot heals from surgery!

    One word… 14.5… Enough said!!! Urgh!!! :-)

    The open was crazy! But I will miss it, I loved the fact that for 5 weeks we were all doing the same workout all over the world. The crossfit community rocks!
