Last Week’s Workouts {37 Weeks}

Things are definitely starting to come to an end with regard to my regular workouts. My body is telling me to take it down a notch and my usual activities just make me so tired nowadays. I still managed to get in a few good workouts this week, but, overall, I didn’t really have the drive or energy to really push myself. Lifting heavy things at CrossFit, for instance, just seemed so exhausting, so I scaled back my weight and opted for more pug+podcast walks over CrossFit classes. That said, here is a recap of last week’s workouts!

Sunday: Off

Monday: 60-minute pug+podcast walk

Tuesday: Off

Wednesday: 60-minute pug+podcast walk + CrossFit

Wednesday’s class had a nice, little WOD: 12 minutes of Deadlifts, Handstand Push-ups (Push Press at 55 pounds for me), and Toes-to-Bar (Knee Raises for me). I used 85 pounds for the Deadlifts, which actually seemed kind of challenging, which is kind of crazy to think about because just a couple of months ago during the CrossFit Open, I used 100 pounds more for a workout with a lot more Deadlifts in it. Yep, my body is definitely telling me to take it easy. I finished this workout 9 + 11.

“Major”
AMRAP 12:
7 Deadlifts (225, 155)
7 Handstand Push up
7 Toes to Bar

L3: (185, 135)
L2: (135-155, 95-115)

Thursday: 18-minute home gym workout + 60-minute pug+podcast walk

Friday: 60-minute pug+podcast walk + CrossFit 

I love a good Bear Complex (Power Clean + Front Squat + Shoulder-to-Overhead + Back Squat + Jerk Behind Neck), so I didn’t want to miss yesterday’s workout. I ended up doing the Bear Complex (7 reps X 4) at a really light weight (45 pounds) and then did a workout on my own of 5 rounds of 10 Deadlifts, 10 Front Squats, and 10 Push Press with 55 pounds.

The goal of the Bear Complex was to increase weight each round, but my form is so whacked out on the Power Cleans because of my massive belly, I didn’t want to keep adding weight, so I opted for the second workout. It all ended up working out in the end because I was exhausted after class! Good workout.

Get ready Beasts. Bring your A game today!

Saturday: 60-minute pug+podcast walk

Please note how I put on Murphy‘s harness. We walked for a good 5 minutes before I noticed that it was on wrong. Haha!

How were your workouts last week?

  1. It’s that time! I love that you are listening to your body. What a role model of healthy living!

    Workouts this week were mostly long runs while on vacation in Seattle. I love running in new areas as there are always fun sights to see!

  2. I bet you need to take it easy these days. Walking sounds like a good option to stay active.

    My workouts were great. A lot of teaching Les Mills group fitness classes and even some foam rolling.

    Have a great weekend:)

  3. 45lbs is my weight region for most exercises, regardless of reps so you’re still doing awesome…incredible actually!!! You’ll spring back in to the heavy stuff post baby I bet…I’ve never even deadlifted more than 45!

  4. Wow, I think you’re doing amazing! I dream of being like you when/if I have a baby!

    My workouts these week have been awesome – 3 CrossFit sessions including a particularly awesome one today, yoga, big walk, run and park workout 🙂 hoping to run tomorrow too, happy days! Definitely need a big sleep first though…

    Have a great weekend

  5. I ran a lot this week – I had a few good runs at the crack of dawn which are my FAVORITE. I also went to spin class for the first time in weeks. I’d say it was a successful week! You’re getting so CLOSE! So exciting.

  6. I bit the bullet and started CrossFit this week! My box does a “Foundations” class where we go 3days/week for 2 weeks and then we can go to any of the classes, but we’ve at least learned a lot of the basics and can feel comfortable in class. So far, I’m LOVING it! (Which has surprised me, but also totally not…lol!)

  7. I think you have done so well to have kept going for so long. it would have been easy to stop and have a good excuse.
    My training this week has gone really well and considering it is only 8 weeks to my first ever tri i am really pleased.

  8. You are still keeping up with your workouts an impressive amount! That’s so good for someone at 37 weeks! I was able to get in 5 workouts. Took off two days in a row, one on purpose, the second one because I hadn’t gotten much sleep for a few days in a row and my body was feeling the effects of it. I knew if I focused on getting to bed early instead of working out, it would be so much better for me.

  9. I’m so impressed by your workouts! I hope I can exercise throughout pregnancy whenever that day comes. 🙂

    My workouts were good last week-got in a Soul Cycle or two, did some circuits and got in some good runs.

  10. I’m a recent reader of your blog and I love it! I’m curious what podcasts you listen to on your walks? I’m always looking for new ways to be entertained during workouts!
