Things are definitely starting to slow down for me on the workout front. I was hit with some serious exhaustion for most of the week, so I haven’t been super motivated to work out. I still made it to a few CrossFit classes and went for a couple of walks, but I can definitely feel my body changing and wanting more low-key activities. That said, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts!
Monday was an all strength workout, so no WOD, which was kind of sad and definitely left me wanting something more, especially since Snatches and Russian Twists aren’t in my wheelhouse anymore. No big deal, of course, and I was glad to take it easy. I substituted Deadlifts and Overhead Squats instead and went moderate-light on weight.
1) Snatch (full squat): 6 x 2 @60-70%
2) Front Squat: 8@60%, 6@70%, 4@80%
3) Russian Twist: 3 x 30 @45, 25
Tuesday: 60-minute pug+podcast walk
Thursday was the first time in nearly 2.5 years of CrossFitting that I saw an AMRAP and thought to myself: “Great! I can go as slow as I want.” Haha! With an AMRAP (as many rounds as possible), the time duration of the workout is the same for everyone, so I didn’t feel the need to push myself too much. My goal was just to keep moving. I finished 7 rounds + 7 reps.
- Over-the-Bar Burpees —> Squat Thrusts
- Box Jumps —> Step-ups
Friday: 45-minute doggie date/walk + 1 hour of yard work
Murphy and I went for a walk with Kerrie and Bentley, and then I came home and helped Mal with yard work for about an hour. Raking and bagging leaves was no problem, but squatting down/bending over and weeding made me want to barf (aka squishing Baby H. into my lungs and stomach more than he already was), so I didn’t last long after that! Haha!
It was “Bring a Friend to CrossFit Day” at 781 (I almost got my sister to come with me, but then she had to work – next time!), so we had a huge class at 9:00 AM. It was also “Smuggle a Medicine Ball Under Your Shirt Day.” Haha!
The WOD was a partner workout, so I teamed up with my friend Lele, who is a CrossFit ninja. She’s seriously good at everything, so I tried my hardest to keep up with her pace. I actually felt really good this morning—much less tired than I’ve been all week! Lele and I finished 3 rounds + 88 reps.
- Sit-ups —> Kipping Knee Raises
- Burpees —> Squat Thrusts
