Another great week of workouts! I actually worked out quite a lot this week””only one true rest day. Jeez, that’s more activity that I typically got before I was pregnant! I dunno, I guess I was felt especially good this week!

I know at some point pregnancy is going to slow me down in a major way, so I’m staying as active as possible while I can. That said, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts!

Sunday: CrossFit (Open Gym)

Mal and I did “Fight Gone Bad” during Open Gym. Recap here. (Brightly-colored socks always make workouts more fun!)

Monday: CrossFit

The WOD was an AMRAP 10 followed by a quickie, all-out workout. Recap here.

Wednesday: CrossFit

Wednesday’s class had a nice little WOD: Burpees + Double Unders. I did Squat Thrusts instead of Burpees, which were still really hard! Jeez, Louise. I was surprised how exhausted they made me. I remember the days when I could bust out 10 Burpees, no problem, but now I’m stopping after 4 or 5 Squat Thrusts to rest. Oh, how things have changed! I finished 8 + 2.

Thursday: CrossFit

Thursday’s workout was kind of deceiving. We warmed-up on the Power Snatches before the start of the workout, and our coach told us to work above the WOD weight, so I did a bunch of reps at 55 pounds””nothing crazy because I’m still getting use to how and whether I can navigate my baby bump with a barbell. (So far, so good!)

When it came time to do the WOD, the first round of Power Snatches seemed so light. I plowed through them and felt awesome. Well, this drastically changed by the second and third rounds”¦ oh my goodness, the Power Snatches got SO HARD. Not really heavy, but just exhausting””same goes with the Sumo Deadlift High Pulls. I thought it was maybe because I was pregnant that I was struggling so much, but everyone was slowing down and breaking up their reps. Apparently, the Toes-to-Bar (Kipping Knee Raises for me), box jumps, and rowing just really wore us out!

I finished 3+25 (the clock ran out during my 4th row) using the prescribed weight and 20” box for box jumps.

  1. Wow! That’s impressive workouts. I’m more envious of your ability to take “off” days. I have an extremely difficult time with that. I have to do some active even if it’s lower impact. I can’t just have a day where I do nothing.

  2. My baby didn’t arrive until 42 weeks and I exercised actively all the up to the day before he arrived (12/3/13)… So you may not have to slow down much!

  3. Those are fun socks!!

    Way to rock your workouts this week 🙂 By the way, you might not have to slow down much, I taught fitness classes up until my baby was born (15 days past her due date”¦grrrrr! hah), and felt fine. Just had to go to bed early!

    Have a nice weekend!
