Training For: Charlotte Covered Bridges Half?
What Was Planned vs. What Happened
Monday 08/21/17: CrossFit | CrossFit
We started with some back squat work, then moved into Open Workout 11.1/14.1, which was a 10 minute AMRAP of 30 double-unders and 15 power snatches. We finished up with 40 manmakers with a 10 minute cap. I was so sweaty toward the end that I had to stop after each one to wipe the sweat out of my eyes. Gross.
Tuesday 08/22/17: 5k Run | Rest
My foot was still not feeling right, so I decided to be extra cautious and take a full rest day.
Wednesday 08/23/17: CrossFit | CrossFit
This class was a LOT of work. We did some skill work for handstand push-ups, then did 3 x 8 seated dumbbell presses, then did two 7 minute workouts. First was 15-9-7 HSPU (I did pike push-ups) and hang cleans, then 9-7-5 deficit HSPU (I used a box) and burpee bar muscle-ups (I just hung from the bar).
Thursday 08/24/17: 5 Mile Run | 5 Mile Run
After a week off from running, I was anxious to see how my foot was feeling. It hadn’t hurt in a couple of days, so I set off for my scheduled 5 miler. I felt great until about 4.5 miles in, at which point I started feeling some twinges.

Today’s workout was a quickie–10-8-6-4 on clean and jerks and burpee bar jump overs, with varying distance runs in between. I was very proud of my finishing time of 18:53. Then I went home and had tacos and a gin and tonic, and watched Netflix until bedtime.
Saturday 08/26/17: Rest | Rest
And rest I did! After a morning appointment to view some property, I pretty much sat on my butt all day, binge-watching Once Upon a Time on Netflix.
Sunday 08/27/17: 11 Mile Run | 3.1 Mile Hike/Walk
I decided not to push things with my foot, but we still wanted to get out and do something active, so we went for a nice nature walk/hike around Colchester Pond.
Overall, it was another solid week. I hit my three scheduled CrossFit classes, and did one nice, middle-distance run. My foot has been feeling good lately, so I’ll attempt to stay on my training plan this week. Running the Covered Bridges Half is pretty unlikely at this point, but you never know.
Have you done any hiking lately?
