Whew! What a great week I had! I followed my diet to a "T" and lost 5.2 pounds this week and kicked butt in all my workouts. What did I do this week?
Weekly Workout Schedule February 9-February 15
Sunday-REST!! Steps: 15,716
Monday-CrossFit + 2 miles This workout pretty much sucked! LOL.Complete a 10 minute AMRAP of:
- 5 Wall Balls
- 5 Double Unders
- 10 Wall Balls
- 10 Double Unders
- 15 Wall Balls
- 15 Double Unders
- 20 Wall Balls
- 20 Double Unders
-30 Wall Balls
And that's as far as I made it. I was pretty happy with how far I got especially since on the FIRST set of wall-balls I jammed my little finger :( Hurt like the dickens!
Tuesday-REST DAY! I needed a rest day to let my jammed finger mend a little bit. I was still really active.
Total Steps: 21,136
Wednesday-CrossFit+2 miles Thankfully my jammed finger is all better
For Time Complete:
- 200m Shuttle Run
- 12 KB Swings (53/35)
- 6 Pull-Ups
* 6 Rounds
This WOD left me gasping for air!! I really enjoyed it because one of our coaches (and box owner, Jen) was able to do the WOD with us while her husband coached us. Helen is her favorite girl, so she was FLYING though this workout and kept me very inspired!
Total Steps: 14,755
EMOM for 12 minutes complete:
1 Squat Clean (or Power Clean into Front Squat) + 3 Front Squats
This WOD was much more difficult than I thought it was going to be. Squat cleans and front squats are difficult for me because of my hip flexors. When I get into the "ass kissing grass" position, I can't get back up if I have too much weight, so I maxed out at 55 pounds because I couldn't get back up! But my heart rate got up and my legs were feeling the squats!
Friday-CrossFit. On Thursday night I signed up for the TNL Festivus Games (a CrossFit competition) as did a few of my box buddies, so we decided to do the first 3 WOD's from the upcoming competition. I'm so glad that they released them early so we could practice!
1000m row FOR TIME. There is a 6 minute cap (I finished in 4:30)
Once the running clock hits 6 minutes:
Athlete must establish a 1RM CLEAN in 6 min (I got up to 90#)
10 KB swing 53/35 - Intermediate 35/26 - Novice
20 sit ups
30 Box overs 24/20
8 min AMRAP
WOD 3 was TOUGH on the 20" box. I managed 2 complete rounds (using a 30# Kettlebell) and 3 box overs for round 3.
Steps: 14,567 (wow...look at 4567 neat-o)
Saturday- SPARTAN RACE!!
This was my FIRST Spartan Race and I was super nervous! I've done a ton of mud runs, but for some reason this one had me really freaked out. But I did it, and I did much better than I thought I would. But...I forget to wear my heart rate monitor, so I have no idea how many calories I burned...but based on how I was feeling, I am going to estimate. I did wear my Loop, but since I didn't have my H7 on, it didn't calculate workout calories, just estimated overall calories for the day. A full review post will be coming soon.
Overall, I had a pretty fantastic week in workouts. How was your week??
