This was the third week of CrossFit Endurance. However, we only had class on Tuesday this week due to a scheduling conflict. So week 3, session #5. No, it’s not getting easier in case you were wondering.
Tuesday – 5:30am
Warm Up – 1000 meter rowing. Sounds easy right? Yeah, not really. There is some sort of secret rowing technique that I’m unable to grasp. They tried to instill it in me at CrossFit New Lenox too. But I’m not on board. I feel like one of the kids by saying, “I just don’t get it”. Yeah, that about sums it up. I like to row but my technique is wrong. I’m open to doing it correctly but apparently don’t understand what my body is supposed to do. I’ll keep working on it though. I WANT to get it right.
Hip Distractions – This really stretches the hips, hamstrings & glutes. A good warm up for runners.
Strength – Sumo Deadlifts. These are getting better. We spent 10-12 minutes on this, which is a lot of time. 2-3 reps at a time. 35# bar w/ 30#s each side. 95#s total.
Met Con – 3 rounds: 20 Russian Kettle Bell Swings, not sure on weight. 10 Burpees. The Russian KB Swing was new for me. It’s an extension of the squat movement we have been working. Squat. Swing. Stay tight. Let arms be dead. They shouldn’t be lifting, so KB only goes up to about chest level. Not a full swing like I’ve done in the past.
Burpees. Yeah, we all know what these are, don’t we? Still not fun. I could do burpees every day for the rest of my life and I’m sure they will still be hard for this long body of mine. Great image below from RecaptureFitness.
I personally think that everyone would eat healthier if we were all held accountable with burpees. I mean, if I had to get down and do 130+ burpees before each craft beer was released from my fridge, I bet I’d stop buying/drinking craft beer. How about you?
So that’s a wrap on Week 3. I’ll see you next week!
What else is up besides CrossFit Endurance? I have a Garmin Marathon giveaway going HERE, drawing is on Christmas Eve. And I’m running the Huff 50K tomorrow. More on that next week. I’m not nearly as prepared for Huff as I normally would be but I think I can make it thru the 2 loops. To be continued on that saga.
Have a Great Weekend – Amanda – TooTallFritz
