Manic Monday – 10/02/17

Manic Monday

Leaf Peepers Half Marathon Training
What Was Planned vs. What Happened

Monday 09/25/17: CrossFit | CrossFit
We started with a strength WOD of 5 x 5 push presses, then did 5 rounds of 5 deadlifts, 5 front squats, 5 thrusters, and 5 push presses. I finished well under the time cap and promptly collapsed on the floor, haha. I hate to complain about the weather but it has been unseasonably hot lately!

Tuesday 09/16/17: 5k Run | Rest
I had lunch plans and after work plans, so a run sadly wasn’t in the cards. I was secretly ok with it though, because it was still super hot.

Wednesday 09/27/17: CrossFit | 4.1 Mile Run
I was still VERY sore from Monday’s CF workout, so I headed out for a quick run. It was really hot, so I made a point of not checking my pace AT ALL and just running by feel. I surprised the hell out of myself with an average pace of just under 10 minute miles. Woohoo!

Thursday 09/28/17: 5k Run | CrossFit
I was feeling a bit less stiff, so I made up Wednesday’s CF class. We did a bunch of sprints, which I nailed, if I do say so myself, then a workout of deadlifts and muscle-ups (or ring dips in my case), with some double-unders sprinkled in every three minutes. It was tough, but good.

Friday 09/29/17: CrossFit | 5k Run
With the gorgeous fall weather, I just HAD to get out for a run. I took it to a hilly portion of the bike path to help prepare me for Sunday’s race.

Saturday 09/30/17: Rest | Rest
I did some productive stuff around the house and hydrated like a boss. We had some friends over for supper, but I made it to bed at a decent hour.
