Good afternoon! After spending most of the afternoon and evening yesterday online with tech support, I’m feeling confident that my computer is debugged. That being said, I got to sleep around 10:30pm last night and got up at 5:30am today. Hubby, C and I were going to walk a 5k. Instead, C was having issues and we left her home crying in her room. When we got there hubby and I decided to run the 5k since it technically was a run not a walk. We saw two ladies from the gym there and they were doing the 10k run. I was sorta nervous, but knew I could finish it. The 10kers started before us and a few minutes later we went. Eventually, before the 1/2 way point for me, I caught up with my gym buddies. I used them as motivation to keep moving and catch up to them. The last mile was brutal, hills and tired legs. I did it though, I ran the entire way and finished in 27:49! My goal was under 30 minutes and I did it! I guess all my Crossfit is paying off. 😛 After we ran and I caught my breath a bit we headed over for some leg massages. It was wonderful and I’m hoping it keeps any pain at bay. It was pretty fun to run another race even though I claim I’m not a runner.
I’m off to shop with the girls! Enjoy your day.
Happy Thursday! Day-of-rest for me. I went to bed around 10pm last night and was awake at 4:45am. I would have like to sleep until 5:30 but it wasn’t meant to be.
Yesterday I weighed in at WW. Are you ready? I lost 5# from last week! Mostly last week was garbage, water-retention, etc., but I’m stoked! I’m only 1.8# away from being back in goal range. 🙂 It even motivated hubby to start logging his food again. I’m still counting calories and it’s working well for me.
Today I work until 1pm and then I’m off to the Farmer’s Market. I work tonight at WW, but thankfully I’ll be home around 7pm, not 8:45.
Enjoy your Friday Eve!
Happy Wednesday! I survived the field trip. Wow, those kids are exhausting. Here are some pics from yesterday.
I got to bed early last night so I’d be ready for this morning’s workout. Instead I hit snooze and had to rush around to get there on time! 😛
A) 10 min to accumulate more strict pull-ups than last week. If you struggled toward the end of the 10 minutes last week and/or felt very sore after the workout, try starting with a thicker band(s) or adding during the 10 min. However, you still want to challenge yourself as the goal here is to improve your pull-ups! If you can get more than 40 STRICT pull-ups in 10 min (Strict meaning all reps with your chin over the bar, no kicking or kipping) then add weight.
25 min AMRAP @80-85% effort:
Alt’g 400M Run & 400M Row
30 DUs (If you don’t have DU, sub 30 target jumps)
20 Russian KB swings
10 Push Ups
Notes: Alternate the Run & Row each round if there is a rower available. If the rowers are in use, get running! Pace yourself at about 80-85% of your max effort. Don’t go ALL OUT but keep moving throughout.
The workout was pretty tough. At one point of running I thought I might puke. I didn’t, but it was a thought. An old member rejoined this morning and it was great to see her there. 🙂
On tap for today….I’m heading downstairs soon to walk and watch Hell’s Kitchen. Shower up and head out to shop a bit before I work at Weight Watchers. I weigh in today and have no clue what will happen. I’ve been counting calories for a week now and it’s going well. I feel a healthier relationship with food again. I plan on doing it again this coming week. Except for maybe on my birthday. LOL I work tonight at the library and then again tomorrow morning.
Enjoy your day!
