Weekly Workouts January 5-11, 2014

12. January 2014 14:35 by jennifer | 8 Comments

I had a pretty good week of workouts. I worked out 6 days, and 2 of those days I did doubles.


Sunday- REST DAY! Haley's BIRTHDAY!! 11,021 Steps

Monday- CrossFit.

For Time Complete:
15, 12, 9, 6, 3 of
* 200M Run (to start each round)
- Power Cleans-60#
- Front Squats-60#

I completed the WOD in 16:10 Total Calories: 494

Total Steps: 14,698


Tuesday-Kids went back to school today!! I went and did Jazzercise. Jazzercise ONLY. 479 Calories.

Total Steps: 17,478


Wednesday-DOUBLE HEADER!! I went to CrossFit AND to Jazzercise.

At CrossFit I did 4 stations, 5 rounds. NOT for time. 500m row, 12 Lateral DB Raises, 20# Med Ball Slams (in one minute, I did 22 each round) and 20" box step ups holding 10# weights. I also rowed 1400m before the WOD began since I got there a bit early and was COLD. Total calories: 501

Then I went to Jazzercise for an hour of dancing. It was fun!! Total Calories: 453

By NOON I had logged 10,628 steps. Good active day!


Thursday- Double Header!! Great WOD! It started with a 400m run, followed by 9 deadlifts (125#) and 9 Pullups, then a 200m run, followed by 15 deadlifts (115#) and 15 pull-ups, then a 100m run, followed by 21 deadlifts (95#) and 21 pull-ups. Calories 364. Then I went to Jazzercise. We did the same routine as yesterday, yet I didn't burn as many calories and I felt like I was working harder. Weird how that works out. Calories 410.

Again, by Noon I had logged over 10,000 steps! Total steps for Thursday: 17,110


Friday-Whew! I was super sore today but I went to CrossFit Cool Friday is always make-up day, so I made up Tuesday's WOD.We started with a bit of strength. 3 Push Press followed by a Split Jerk, work to a max weight. THEN....50 butterfly sit-ups, 100 single jump ropes, 50 hand release push-ups, 100 single jump ropes, 25 butterfly sit-ups, 50 single jump ropes, 25 hand release push-ups, 50 single jumps.

And then after the WOD I walked a mile. IN 12 MINUTES. That was a new one mile walking PR for me.

Calories: 469

Total Steps: 15,959

Saturday-  What a crazy morning! I was up way before dawn to get ready to appear on ABC News. My daughter Haley came along and she ended up being interviewed, too! I had to dress in work-out clothing, so by the time I got home, it was 8:15am, and I figured I'd go and workout at 9am since I was already dressed and ready to go!

We did a GREAT partner WOD. 25 minutes of a 400m run, 10 crawlers, 15 ring rows, 20 overhead walking lunges.

Calories: 667

Steps: 17,869


Total Weekly Steps: 110,365 (that's over 52 miles!!)

Total Calories: 19,506 (includes all calories, from exercise, and calories burned from being alive LOL)

This is the weekly chart from my Loop. You can see that every day I exceeded 100% of my activity goals. I'm doing well with moving my body!

How was your week in workouts?

OK, this crossfit stuff confuses me.  What is WOD, for time, not for time etc.?


WOD means Workout of the Day. When a WOD is "for time" it means you time to see how long it takes you to complete a prescribed workout. Not for time is the opposite. In a not for time workout the goal is to finish a set number of rounds at your own pace.


Happy Birthday Haley!


Busy week, so awesome! Look at you go!

Thanks for linking up with us!


You are killing it, girl! Wow!!! Thanks for linking up with us at Motivation Monday. You are truly inspirational!


I'm a Fitbit gal, but I saw a review of the Polar Loop and I was quite impressed. I mean, it was mostly the same type of stuff and stats as Fitbit, but I really liked the presentation of the data.

You WALKED a mile in 12 minutes? That's 5mph and that is definitely a jog for me (I'll call 4mph a "walk") and that's what I can maintain without stopping to walk. I'm hoping to extend that to a 5k this year.

Once upon a time, I used to try to get 10K by 10am ... I'm not sure how I did that!


I can't believe how many steps you took that is amazing! I have a Fitbit that tracks my steps...and I'm lucky if I make it to 10,000 steps a day lol. You've just inspired me to get off my bum at work today and walk around the office a bit more to get those extra steps in.


I haven't had a normal workout since 12/23 because of vertigo.  I'm trying to ease back into working out since the vertigo is pretty much gone.  You sure have walked a lot!
