Weekly Workouts May 11-May 17

Wow! What a week! And I mean that in a good way! We went out of town for my cousin's wedding on May 10th. We headed down to my hometown of Venice, Florida and the husband and I brought our bikes. We were hoping for the chance to be able to get in a ride on the Legacy Trail on Mother's Day, but honestly I wasn't sure if we were BOTH going to be able to do it. I knew James could do it, but with the #TampaTrio around, who could watch them? I didn't want to ask my mom since it was HER Mother's Day, too (my 3 are a lot of work), but it was my DAD that stepped up and said he'd LOVE to watch them! Surprised Really??? Awesome!! So without further ado, here is my week in workouts, and don't forget to join in on the #20X31 challenge, and link up with my friend Jen over at JVKom Chronicles!


Sunday-HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!  James and I cycled nearly 20 miles on the Legacy Trail. It was such a nice ride for both of us. We wanted to go further, but we had to get back to Tampa to pick up our dog from the kennel by 6pm, which meant we had to leave Venice no later than 4pm. We probably COULD have done the entire trail, but this was a nice, slow, easy ride for us. We stopped a lot since the trail has so many scenic spots to sit and watch the bay. It was a wonderful ride!! And my dad did GREAT with the kids!

Calories: I did not wear my heart rate monitor.

Steps: 14,859. Just steps. The Loop does not track movement on the bike as steps.

Monday-CrossFit. My knee has been bothering me again. Really badly. So even though I wanted to follow the squat program weight, I couldn't. Well, I could have, but I didn't want to take the chance of further injuring my knee. Fitness isn't about that for me. I also joined the 5pm class so that my kids could do the 5:30pm CrossFit kids class and I wouldn't have to make a double trip to the gym. But I've decided I'd rather make the double trip and be able to do MY workout at MY time.

After squats we did Cindy. I had to modify it because I needed to be closer to my kids since Ronin had an incident and I wanted him to be able to be close to me. So instead of doing pull-ups, I did ring rows which put me on the same side of the gym as the kids.


Complete a 20 minute AMRAP of:
– 5 ring rows
– 10 Push-ups
– 15 Squats

I made it 13 rounds.

Calories: 349

Steps: 17,987

Tuesday-CrossFit. We did 10-15 minutes of foam rolling, quad smashing and mobility work.

Then we did FOR TIME:

200m shuttle run (I did a one minute sprint on the Air Dyne)

40 double unders (I did med ball slams)

20 KB Swings (35 pounds)

But I didn't pay attention, and I did 5 rounds.

I am having big issues with my knee, so I had to modify the run and the double unders. No jumping or running for me.

And then I mowed my lawn.

Calories: WOD+ lawn=759

Steps: 23,394

Wednesday-CrossFit. We did power clean skill work and then built up to a heavy power clean. I am working REALLY HARD on my form, and FINALLY I got a triple extension caught on video!! I was so proud of that and that made me decide to stick with that weight (65#) for the WOD.

The WOD was a EMOM 12 minute. Even minute: 12 lateral bar burpees (or as many as you could complete in 45 seconds. I always made it to 8 burpees, and ODD minute: 1 power clean, and 1 power clean and jerk.

Then 75 weighted situps. I had to hussle through this WOD because I had ABC News coming out to my house at Noon to tape a segment.

Calories: 737

Steps: 13,183

Thursday: REST DAY!! I decided to take my Polar OWN test to check my fitness level.

I was pretty happy with the results. For my age, that puts me right in the high end of the "average" group. I'm only ONE point away from being in the next level, so that's a new goal!

Steps: 11,778

Friday-CrossFit. It was make-up day.

We did front squats, and again, I backed down the weight from my knee injury. And for the WOD I subbed box step-ups instead of lunges.

The WOD was FOR TIME, 50 box step ups, 40 shoulder to overhead (I did push press) 30 back squats, 20 tricep dips, and a 10 calorie row.

And then I finished it off with a 2 mile shakeout walk.

WOW!! That calorie burn was AWESOME!!

Calories: 1080

Steps: 22,657

Saturday: REST DAY!! We went blueberry picking and spent the afternoon at the pool. It was a GREAT day of rest!! Check out Haley and Ronin actually getting along VERY well at the pool. This picture makes my heart smile Smile

Steps: 12,023


Overall, it was a great week. I had some low numbers earlier in the week, but that was by choice since I had some outstanding commitments which didn't allow me to work out as long as I normally do. That's okay. Hopefully I'll be back to normal this week!


Total Weekly Steps: 115,872


And when I checked my weekly data from my Polar FT60, it was very happy with me :) I even earned a trophy!!

How was your week in workouts?? How did you get active?
