Another chill week at CrossFit since most of us at the 5am class are recovering from the Chicago Marathon. I personally had a very chill week too. I ate for recovery and fun. Then I ate some more. Then did a billion loads of laundry. Then I probably ate some more. It takes a bit for
my the body to bounce back after using that many calories in one stint, so I just try to go with it until I feel somewhat “normal”.
I did CrossFit on TUE/THUR, rode my bike on the trainer for 11 miles last night, then ran 6 miles this morning. So I’m getting back into the swing of things but I’m certainly not in a rush. Next week, I’ll start some faster speed work though to
shock the body prepare for a few local 5Ks where I’d like to show up and actually run fast. It’s been a long time since I’ve tried to run fast, like 5K fast, and I’m both terrified and excited.
CrossFit – Day 29 – How to baby the marathoners and get them to show up for a CF workout 2 days post race. Arms ONLY WOD!!!
- 10 Wall Climbs
- 10 Reverse Rope Climbs
- Death by Pushups
That’s all folks. I only made 12 rounds of Death by Pushups. I wanted to get to 15 but only made 10 into the 13th set. Seems pathetic but I tried, so it is what it is, right? As a refresher, death by anything uses the clock, in one minute intervals. One minute per round, go as many rounds as possible. First round started with 1 push-up. Do the 1, then rest til the minute ends. Then 2 push-ups in the next minute. Then 3, etc. until you can’t go any longer. In all, I did 88 pushups.
CrossFit – Day 30 – Trying to get the marathoners back on the CF wagon!
- Front Squats – 7×3 – We did more than 7 rounds of 3. We started with the bar only. I think we probably were using the 31# bar instead of the 45# one but I really have no idea. I just lift what I’m told. After a few rounds which focused on
loosening up our tight runner hamstringsform, we started adding weights, 10#s at a time (5# to each side). I think we made it up to 20#s on each side, squatting that 3x before it was time to move on.
- 5 minute ladder – Wall Balls & Step Ups. A ladder starts at 1 and then each round 1 rep is added. First round, 1 wall ball, 1 step up on the 18” box. Second round, 2 wall balls, 2 step ups. I made it thru 10 full rounds and was working on my 11th with the wall balls when the 5 minutes was up. Hard. Continuous movement. Fun.
- 100 abmat sit-ups. OUCH.
