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!)
The WOD was an AMRAP 10 followed by a quickie, all-out workout. Recap here.
Tuesday: 60-minute spinning class
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’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.
Saturday: 30-minute walk with Murphy
