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)

I used #105 for the Deadlifts and finished in 7:04.
