In a good and busy way, life has been flying by. Nothing really new to report (same old stuff) but all is well, happy and sweaty.
Spinning – 1 hour spin class
I love the class structure and programming at CrossFit Metric: warm-up, strength, WOD. Our warm-up today was mobility and stretching (lying leg swings, lunges, air-squats). Then we did 3×10 bench press and kettle-bell overhead squat.
And then the WOD was:
I really need to get pull-ups. And string toes-to-bar together. Ugh. The struggle. Anyways, I used 75lbs and got 5 rounds + 2 thrusters and 10 clean & jerks.
I also am trying to start a weekly theme day at the gym: on Wednesdays we wear pink. “Oh my gosh Karen, you can’t just ask people if the even lift.” -Girls Gone WOD
4 miles + 5 x 200m sprints + 15 minute bike
I tried out my Cortana 4s for the first time – I think I like the 3s better but we will see.
16 miles (+20 minute bike + stretch + foam roll)
So I slept through my alarm on Saturday morning. But no, extra sleep did not mean more energy. I was oddly not at all feeling this run – which is weird after having a really solid race last week. Anyways, I got ready and set out. It was an absolutely gorgeous day (maybe even too hot) but I am certainly not complaining.
I set out to do 18 miles but after 4 miles, I knew that wasn’t going to happen – I felt dead. Well my legs did. So I changed my plan (and route) based on how I was feeling. How spontaneous Amy! I know, I know.
Running is confusing. Last week, 15.5 miles felt easy and fast. This week, 16 miles felt impossible and slow. I really just was over the run and felt exhausted. I don’t even know why but it happens. Consistency not perfection.
Update on my running gear and running fuel: I bought this new little thingy and attached it to my SPIbelt to hold my baby food and it’s perfect. I had 2 pouches of baby food during this run which felt like the right amount. Funny story about the baby food. As I was paying for them at the brand new Whole Foods by my house (!!!!) the lady asked how old my kid was. Then thought I was quite odd for eating baby food while running. Whatevs.
Yoga – 75 minute hot Power Flow class.
After a hefty distance/feeling tired on Saturday and coaching all afternoon yesterday, I knew going to olympic lifting in the morning wasn’t a smart idea. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone to yoga so off I went. Oh my gosh: it was friggin hot and hard. But felt really great afterwards.
Questions of the day…
What did you do this weekend? Do you ever have totally different workouts or runs?
