Back to Normal – With a New Look!

I needed a little bit of a upgrade.  Something fresh for the blog.  I like it! Hope you do too! Figured since I have been quiet for 3 weeks – I would come blazing back . I have been super super busy lately.  Work has been crazy, to say stressful would not even come close.  The hubs changed jobs, my son went to Disney with the band.  Just lots going on.

With that lots going on, I have only been able to make it to class about 2x week instead of my usual 3x. And, boy , is this body feelin’ it! I need to get to class more, fit them in.  I have been stuck at my weight too.  I know it is because I have not been doing everything I need to.  Time to step it up!

When last I blogged, I was going to attempt 14.5.  Major Fail.  There was no way I could do it RX as long as I needed to . Just no way, so I did ” Jack ” that night instead – pulled out an PR! Thank you to everyone for the support and encouragement as I attempted my first Open.

I have had some great workouts though, over the past few weeks! Here is some of how I did :

3/31 “Jack is a Cross Fit Benchmark workout.  I actually did this RX! I was so excited.

20 min AMRAP

10 Push Press 75 lb

10 KB Swings 35 lbs

10 Box Jumps 20″

I got through 5 +3 rounds.  I was really pumped!

4/2 for Time

500 m row

3 rounds

12 Pistols ( done with the rings)

8 Knees to elbow ( or as close as I could get)

500 m row

3 rounds

12 Pistols ( done with the rings)

8 Knees to elbow ( or as close as I could get)

500 m row

My time was 18:23.  We recently changed up how they modify pistols for those of us that can’t do them yet and It is way more challenging.  I feel like I get a better workout using the ring method.

4/7 for time

Its getting to be nicer out – so that means running returns to the workouts.  Dreaded it, but Love it!

400 m run

3 rounds

3 HSPU – which I can actually do now!!!!!

9 Deadlifts – 95 lbs

400 m run

3 rounds

3 HSPU – which I can actually do now!!!!!

9 Deadlifts – 95 lbs

400 m run

My time was 28:22

I am glad I can finally do HSPU. Still have a ways to go as far as getting down further, but I can hold myself up and then I can move myself down – Freaking progress people! Whoo Hoo!

 

4/10 for time

1000m row

100 Double unders – finally got some of my DU “swing” back – I used a speed rope and was able to bang out 4-5 in a row through the 100

75 KB Swings 35 lbs – At this point in the workout, I was struggling.  I had to do 5 swings at a time, I was pooped!

50 Grasshoppers – by far the easiest thing of this workout

25 Power snatches 65 lbs – At this point I was lucky to finish and not drop the bar on my head, but my awesome coach Holly was right by my side through the last of it, encouraging me and pushing me.

Final time 24:08

 

There you have it – a few of my workouts from the past few weeks.

In other news, I went for a run tonight.  I have been doing some calf exercises to loosen then up , but they got really tight tonight.  I walked it out and decided to see if I can run faster.  I mean, yes, technically , we all CAN run faster, but could I do it? I booked it.  Not sure how far I ran, maybe 100 – 200 m but I will say I found it a lot easier than ever before.   I just need a super sports bra.  Boy, did it hurt my girls, lol.  And my toosh!  I need a super  sports bra/ butt combo.  Haha.  If anyone hears about one, please let me know 🙂  Need to kick up the running – have a 5K on 5/31.

 

Feeling good about things right now! Looking forward to the future.
