Last week was a good week of workouts! It felt well balanced between running and Crossfit (not too much of anything) and I got a little yoga session in. I really want to work on pushing my pace on intervals, but I’ve got to get my right hamstring sorted out so my leg turnover will be a bit freer. Hence…the yoga. I’m also trying to do some foam rolling at night too.
S – Rest
M – 6.25 mile run, 8:28 pace
T – Bootcamp
Partner WOD (Tommy was my partner <3 )
20 minute AMRAP:
2,000 meter row, 100 kettlebell thursters, 60 pull-ups
We got through a full round and then 887 additional meters.
The most exciting thing about that boot-camp workout was I tried a strict pull-up during the warm-up and I DID ONE!!!!!!! And then I did 3 more! I’ve NEVER done a strict pull-up in my life. So so excited!
W – 4 mile run, average 7:56 pace + CrossFit
5 minute warm-up + 90 second sprints (around 6:30 pace) followed by 2.5 minutes recovery run (around 8:30-8:40 pace) + 3 minute cool down. I think I ended up doing 6 or 7 rounds of intervals. I lost count and I’m too lazy to do the math. 😉
Front Squat, 10 minute EMOM, 3 reps – 105#. I focused on squatting deep (below paralell!) instead of going really heavy.
5 rounds: 9 pull-ups (banded), 6 dead lifts, 3 hang cleans. I used a 65# bar since I still get nervous with cleans and finished in 7:23.
Th – 3 miles, 8:22 pace + 30 min at home yoga practice, nice and easy and stretchy stretchy
F – Rest
S – Run 3 miles, 7:56 pace
Su – Run 6 miles, 8:40 pace
Total miles: 23 miles
How I’m feeling:
- My right hamstring and glute have been a little grumpy for weeks, and I KNOW I need to do more stretching so I’m going to try to do yoga once a week, even if I need to practice at home when I can’t make it to a class.
- I got some new running shoes – Altras The One – this week that I’m in love with. I’ll do a post about them soon. Huge thanks to blog reader Amy for recommending them!!
- I signed up for the free training plan for the Cherry Blossom 10 miler and selected the Advanced plan. I just got it and I think I was a little ambitious – it’s a lot more miles than I’m doing right now. I think I may need to switch to the Intermediate plan, or do the lower range of prescribed mileage. Is anyone else doing the CB 10 mile training program?
Hope you have a great Monday!
