Training For: Charlotte Covered Bridges Half?
What Was Planned vs. What Happened
Monday 08/07/17: CrossFit | CrossFit
We worked up to one rep max squat snatches, which KILLED me, and then did a 15 minute workout that combined bar muscle ups and hang cleans. And then I got changed and went out to a concert. On a Monday night. Like a boss.
Tuesday 08/01/17: 5k Run | 5k Run
I didn’t feel like running at lunch, so right after work I changed into my running clothes and zipped out the door for a 5k. This meant I got to go home and shower off instead of sitting in my own sweat all afternoon. Win.
Wednesday 08/02/17: CrossFit | CrossFit
We did Open workout 17.5, which is 10 rounds of 9 thrusters and 35 double-unders. I didn’t quite finish before the time cap, but I was able to do two DUs in a row several times, and even three in a row once, which is HUGE. We finished with some sprints.
Thursday 08/03/17: 5 Mile Run | Rest
I was quite tired and sore after three straight days of workouts, so I decided to just relax. This was also the day Ben came home (FINALLY), so I made dinner for the family and we just hung out.
Friday 08/04/17: CrossFit | CrossFit
This was a doozy–basically 5 different short workouts crammed into one hour. I was a sweaty, exhausted mess at the end.
Saturday 08/05/17 : Rest | Rest
We had a relaxing morning, and then spent the rest of the day at our friends Lori and Emerson’s wedding.
Sunday 08/06/17: 9 Mile Run | 8 Mile Run
It was a perfect, breezy, overcast day. I probably could have done 9, but since I didn’t run long last weekend, I didn’t want to push it too much.
That’s probably the best week of training I’ve had in a while. I made it to three CrossFit classes and ran twice. I’m hoping I can keep this up going forward!
