A Better Week of Workouts

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Last week was definitely a better week of workouts for me. I can’t say I’m fully back and 100%, but I’m getting there””slowly, but surely! I’m making a comeback, people!

Sunday: Off

Monday: Track workout + CrossFit

I had a track workout on the agenda for Monday, but then “Michael” popped up on the 781 homepage. “Michael” has a decent amount of running in it, so I decided to combine it with my track workout.

At the track, I ran two miles at a comfortable pace to warm-up.

And then I did a 1-mile time trial: 7:12. Not bad.

And then I did “Michael” with an 800 meter cool down, so the whole workout ended up being 5 miles + 150 Supermans (I substituted them for Back Extensions) + 150 sit-ups.

Tuesday: Off

Wednesday: CrossFit (GI Jane)

Thursday: 4 miles

Meh. It was a rough 4 miles. I had zero energy and walked a bunch of times. But, hey, the bad runs make you appreciate the good ones, right?

Friday: End of Summer Classic 5-Miler

Saturday:  CrossFit

Saturday partner WODs = the best thing ever.

Saturday’s workout was a butt kicker:

8 Thrusters + 6 rope climbs + 11 box jumps? No big deal”¦ unless you do it for 31 minutes and your only “rest” is running 400 meters while carrying a 15-pound plate. Oh, and the weight for the Thrusters was super heavy. 105 pounds for ladies? Yikes.

Clearly, this type of workout needed Zombie Killa socks! How fun are these things!?!

I teamed up with Kerrie for the WOD. I started with running while she tackled the Thrusters (we used 85 pounds) and rope climbs. When I finished the 400 meters, I took over on the rope climbs and continued onto the box jumps and then back to the Thrusters while Karrie ran. Basically, as soon as the runner finished, they picked up where the other person left off with their reps. We did this for 31 minutes and finished 5 + 8 (5 rounds + 8 reps of Thrusters).

Question of the Day

What’s your most fun/funny piece of exercise apparel? 

P.S. After last week’s “A Bunch of Really Hard Workouts for You” post, a bunch of you guys asked where you can find this post for future reference. It’s housed under ”˜Workouts‘ on the main menu of CNC. There’s also a bunch of other workouts there. Happy sweating!



  1. Great week of workouts! Glad you are feeling a bit better 🙂
    I have a tank that says “Eat Clean, Train Dirty”. Love it!

  2. That’s a pretty productive week of workouts! And I completey agree that the bad runs make you appreciate the good ones 🙂 My favorite “fun” piece of running apparel is my headband that says “Suck it up Cupcake!”…perfect motivation on a long run!

  3. I have a tremendous addiction to knee/over-the-knee socks! They’re not in my possession yet, but for the Color in Motion 5K next month I pre-ordered a pair of knee socks in truly eye-searing shades of green. My plan for the actual race, though, is to wear a pair of white knee socks so that they can also be a part of my “dye job.” So excited! 😀

  4. I love Saturday partner WODs. I didn’t think I would, actually I avoided them my first few months at CF because I have always been a solo exerciser… but I have to say I was wrong! They are a blast!

  5. Great to hear you’re almost back to feeling better! Take your time and you’ll get there sooner than you think. Looks like a great week of workouts still!

  6. Those socks look great. Is it possible to order them online anywhere?
    Just started to do some crossfit and love it. Not ready for the big WODs yet, but getting there.

  7. I have the bright green pro compression socks with pink stars. I think they are the perfect accessory to pretty much any outfit, Zach does not.

  8. I have a shirt that says “Can’t Touch This” with a cactus. While it’s not meant to be a workout shirt, I wear it on days I’m down.

  9. I need to get some fun knee highs for my workouts! They’ll make my outfit that much better. Where do you typically get yours from? I need them in my workout wardrobe ASAP. LMK when you have a free moment.

  10. I have a “hipster” white t-shirt with a wolf and a moon on the front. Totally one of those sarcastic shirts that I like to wear because it’s simply weird. I love the blue top you are wearing in your last picture!

  11. Have you ever tried wheat grass? I was just reading about it and it said it was helpful for controlling uc. Just made me think of you and wanted to pass it along 🙂

  12. my neon pink argyle compression socks I just got!

    That and I have a shirt I wear when I do St. Patty’s day runs– it says “Official Kilt Inspector”. lol

  13. Holeeeeeee chit, man. That partner WOD is rough. 85lb thrusters are nothing to sneeze at, either. Bravo. Wonderful 1 mile TT, wow! And agree – the bad runs come with the good ones. Awesome job with your workouts.

  14. You bad run quote reminded me of a quote from a podcast I listen to (Two Gomers Run For Their Lives). Gomer #1 always says “Your always one run away from a good one.”
