holy crap. It’s 8 pm and I am finally sitting down to relax for the first time since 3:30 am. Yes, you read that right.
Today was longer than long. From working 9+ hours to make up some time, I went straight to the track to complete 8 Yasso 800’s. Considering how horrible one of my speed days went last week, I am so so happy with how today went. I completed all 8 sprints under the recommended time.
Even though my legs were definitely tired by the end, I never thought that any of the sprints were impossible. Like I said, much better than last week!
I headed right from the track to CrossFit. Tonight’s workout was heavy on the weights and heavy on the legs
4 rounds for time:
12 Deadlifts (Rx 135#)
20 pike ups
12 Cleans (85#)
8 Handstand pushups (with bands)
It took me just under 14 minutes. I died. well, almost. My legs were done. After the track and then all the heavy lifting I had a hard time. My last round really had me diggin’ deep!
Between the track and crossfit I chugged a bunch of water and had a chocolate milk. You need to remember to refuel, especially on hot days like this! Lately when my stomach grumbles just a little between meals I am finding that just a small handful of trailmix really helps hold me off until my next meal.
This evening I went for a nice long walk with Jbone and the pups. We are taking care of Trigger this week so we are spoiling him with a bunch of walking 😉
I am finally on the couch. ahhhh…… actually, I should be studying for my CrossFit cert. My awesome trainer gave me a bunch of tips on what to concentrate on so I need to get crackin’. I plan on focusing on that tomorrow night. I am also hoping to stay late after CrossFit tomorrow. I am lucky enough to be able to work one on one with a super educated guy at my gym and he is going to help me break down each lift and what I absolutely need to know about each. Like I said, I am lucky!
But for now I am plopped on the couch watching the Olympics and eating some Ben and Jerrys frozen yogurt.
I am going to sleep so good tonight!
Possibly more swimming before CrossFit tomorrow! Hopefully it’s just not as crazy rushed as today felt.
