Leaf Peepers Half Marathon Training
What Was Planned vs. What Happened
Monday 09/04/17: CrossFit | CrossFit
This was a doozy. We started out with a quick ab workout, then ran half a mile, then did a for time workout of 100 sit-ups, 50 burpees, and a 140m overhead dumbbell carry, and finished up with Jackie (1000m row, 50 thrusters, and 30 pull-ups). I was BEAT.
Tuesday 09/05/17: 5k Run | 5k Run
It was a beautiful, sunny evening, and I ran a nice, easy 5k.
Wednesday 09/06/17: CrossFit | Walk @ Lunch
We had our client appreciation event in the evening, so I went for a nice 3-ish mile walk on my lunch break.
Thursday 09/07/17: 5 Mile Run | CrossFit
We started with a set of 15 snatch complexes with increasing load, then did 3 rounds of 30-20-10 slam ball toss overs, slam ball squats, and slam ball push-ups.
Friday 09/08/17: CrossFit | Rest
I really wanted to run, but it was hot outside during lunch, and we were meeting a realtor after work. Whomp whomp.
Saturday 09/09/17: Rest | Rest
This was a “get caught up on life stuff” kind of day. Laundry, cleaning, napping etc. Then we had supper with our friends Lori and Emerson.
Sunday 09/10/17: 11 Mile Run | 11 Mile Run
Wow, this long run was SO MUCH BETTER than my 10 mile run two weeks ago. Faster, easier, and just more pleasant overall. Woohoo!
