I’m happy to report that I am feeling pretty darn good on the fitness front! I had some really awesome workouts over the past two weeks, and, for the most part, I feel like my old self again. And I totally took advantage of every opportunity to get my butt in gear since Mal is back to school this week, and I won’t have the same freedom to work out whenever I want. Things are changing around here!
WEEK OF 8/17
Sunday: 15-minute run + 45-minute walk with stroller
Wednesday: 5K run with Kerrie
Thursday: 3-miles with the jogging stroller
Overhead Squat: 6 x 4, ascending (worked my way up to 90 pounds)
“Tried and True”
Chest to Bar Pull-ups
Overhead Squats (95, 65)
I scaled the C2B Pull-ups to regular pull-ups and used 55 pounds for the OHS. I forget my time, but I was sore for days after this workout. Apparently, my lats went MIA after 10+ months of not using them! Haha!
Saturday: Kettlebells 4 Kids
WEEK OF 8/24
Sunday: 5 miles
Tuesday: 3 miles with Kerrie + CrossFit
5 Rounds for time, with a partner of:
Sprint 400 meters x 2
Prowler Push 50 meters x 2
My partner and I finished in 21:10. My legs were Jello by the end. Prowler Pushes always kick my butt, especially after running 3 miles before class!
10 Walking Lunges
3-10 Rebounding Box Jumps (use a height you can rebound with)
5-10 Glute Activation (coach’s choice)
Touch ”˜n Go Deadlift: 5 x 5 @75-80%, 3 warm up sets (I worked my way up to #135)
Dead Lifts (185, 135)
Box Jumps (24, 20)
Wall Balls (20, 14)
I used #105 for the Deadlifts and finished in 7:04.
Friday: 90-minute walk with moms’ group
Good luck this week! I’m sure it’ll be a little bit of an adjustment with Mal back in school but I’m sure Q is happy to have plenty of mama time 🙂
It’s awesome that you and Mal were able to spend the summer together, bonding with your little guy and figuring out parenthood together! I’m hoping to have a baby while my husband is at his current job because they are incredibly supportive of new families. They offer paternity leave in addition to maternity leave. As they should, right?!
Once you figure out how t
AHHH that posted too early – once you figure out how to squeeze in a workout let me know! I still haven’t figured that out… Besides walking with William, but now itz even harder being back at work!
So impressed how quickly you got back into shape!!! I didn’t even have a baby and the end of summer try-to-stay-in-shape struggle is so real.
I’m sure it’ll be quite the change now that Mal is going back to school, but I’m sure you’ll be able to figure it all out and make it work. Good luck!
Your workouts are making me want to go workout!
What a great summer to have your husband around – seriously good timing on that! You will adjust quickly and it will be nice to have some alone down time with the baby. Fitting in workouts will happen!
Somehow I know you’ll make it work with Mal’s schedule. I’m just glad he was off to help you when Q was super wee to help with the new mommy (and daddy) transition!
I’m sure this week will be tough, but things will be a new kind of normal, you just have to figure out what that is! Good luck with it all! Love all the workouts; you are kickin butt!
Good luck with the new schedule. I’m sure you will make it work!
You’ve been busy!!! Such a great balanced mix of strength, high intensity and you’re getting in a nice amount of running too! Don’t know how you manage it with the stroller!!! So tough!
That’s great you are back in the swing of things. Looks like you’ve done a good variety of movement. Keep it up!
Nice job mama! I remember oh so well how awesome it felt getting back into a groove after my son was born. 🙂
What a great mix of workouts! What a great way to not get bored or feel like you are stuck in a rut! I love that you are making time to get out (stroller time) and hang out with other moms while being active! So inspiring 🙂 Makes it hard for me to justify skipping a workout (no babies here!). Thanks for sharing and keep up the great workouts!!
That is so perfect that Mal has been home during the early part of Quinn’s life. So lucky!! I swear, with a baby, each adjustment is definitely a bit of a life-work-mom balance game!
Awesome workouts!! I hope this week goes well for y’all.
I’m sure it’ll be difficult to have Mal go back to school but I hope the transition goes smoothly! Glad you got some workouts in!
You are kicking ass!! I’ve been thinking about getting back into Spinning. It’s love-hate for me and totally depends on the teacher. I bet you’re going to miss having Mal around. 🙂
Dang girl! It’s like you just bounced right back after having a baby!
Hi Tina! Was wondering what sneaker you would recommend for crossfit? I have been told the nanos. Is there a version you would recommend?
The Nano 4.0! ðŸ˜„
Running with a stroller? I’ve never tried that. But I imagine the baby would sort of be in the pocket and you could sort of be the kangaroo, if you know what I mean. 😉
