Weekly Workouts May 4-May 10

It was a good week. At least it felt good. Until Thursday. Then I pushed myself too hard, and hurt my knee. But I'll be alright. Don't forget to check out the hashtag #20X31 and join in on the May Fitness Challenge! You can link up with JVKom HERE.

 Sunday-REST DAY!! Not sure what we did. Oh ya, I went to the pool with my kids. That was fun!

Steps: 9,902. I actually went more, but I left my Loop on the charger for a few hours so missed out on quite a few thousand steps.

Monday-I went and taped a special Mother's Day episode for Daytime TV in the morning, so I didn't get to CrossFit until later that evening. CROSSFIT! Squat day. We did 6-8X3 @81% of our 1 rep max. Afterwards, we did a birthday WOD for Coach Jim. It was 3 rounds for time of 31 sit-ups and 31 walking lunges. I did air squats instead b/c lunges kill my knees. Ronin came and did CrossFit kids, so while he worked out, I rowed a 5K.

Ronin really enjoyed his WOD. And he crashed...HARD! I live less than 10 minutes from the gym, and Ronin was asleep before we even made it to the first stoplight. He was out for the NIGHT!

Calories: 744

Steps: 13,191

Tuesday-CROSSFIT!! Ronin was up before the birds and we started walking Matthew bright and early. Then I made it to the gym. I was pooped out, but a good workout always makes me feel better!! And 300 was no exception!!

One of my goals for this year is to be able to step-up on a 20" box with my left leg without needing assistance from either a pole, or by placing my hand on my knee and pushing up. So I scaled the box step-ups to a 14" box and was successful! I also did the RX weight for the deadlifts, which was 95 pounds. And I walked afterwards. Or rowed. I can't remember. LOL.

Calories: 885

Steps: 16,582

Wednesday-CROSSFIT!! We did a build up to a 1 rep max strict press. This is the HARDEST lift for me. Then we did a 2000m row, and a 1 mile run, both for time. In lieu of running 1 mile for time, I walked 2 miles for time.

Calories: 621

Steps: 17,932

And then I went back to CrossFit that evening for the #TampaTrio to do their workout!! They had so much fun!! I'll be doing a post on their experience a bit later this week.

Thursday-CROSSFIT!! One of my En Fuego buddies moved, so I joined her at her new box. It was a running WOD. I did it, I ran, but I killed my knee.

Steps: 16,222

Calories: 716


Friday-CROSSFIT!! It was make-up day, so I made up Thursday's WOD which was front squats and then a 16 minute AMRAP of power cleans, and wall balls. My knee was so sore from the workout the day before that I couldn't do the 86% of my 1 rep max, I had to scale it down. That made me sad, but at least I didn't hurt myself any further.

The WOD was super fun. It was 2X20 power cleans, 2X5 wall balls, then add weight to the bar, and do 2X15 power cleans, 2X10 wall balls, and go from there, for 16 minutes. I did the power clean weights at 55, 60, 65, and then 70. I made it all the way to the end of the Power Clean reps, but only 3 wall balls. And then I walked a mile to shake out my legs.

Steps: 17,503

Calories: 660, though likely higher because I'm having technical issues with my H7 transmitter.

Saturday-WEDDING DAY!! My cousin got married!! It was a great day. I should have totally wore my HRM because I danced the night away!! Whoop whoop! So much fun!


Steps: 23,266 BAM!! Overall, I had a really good week! Well, beside the whole knee issue. But I know my limits, and I can't be running.

Total weekly steps: 114,598

How was your week in workouts??

    I really really need to try Crossfit. We were in Chicago over the weekend. There was a huge Crossfit convention in town. They were all at our hotel. And from the sounds of it, I need to put my boys in too!
