Gosh, my life has been so busy that I have been really failing at updating the blog! But Thursday I had a great workout that I wanted to share! At class on Thursday night Kari and I gave “Fight Gone Bad” another try! You may remember me talking about the workout that made me want to throw up 100 times and this was that same workout with just enough almost vomit as the first time around!
As a reminder… here is the Crossfit workout…
- Wall-ball, 20 pound ball, 10 ft target (Reps)
- Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75 pounds (Reps)
- Box Jump, 20″ box (Reps)
- Push-press, 75 pounds (Reps)
- Row (Calories)
We did this for 3 rounds and you get 1 point for each one you do! The first round I was pretty motivated and the second round I struggled to even jump up on the shorter box but the third round I picked it back up and finished strong. I finished this time at 356 points and the last time around I finished at about 320 so I would say it was a success! Kari still put an old fashion whoppin’ on me and finished at over 570! She was amazing and I hope to get to that point one of these days but Thursday just wasn’t my day!
Another great part about the workout was that we started out the workout with a nice 1 mile run. I turned around and did just a little extra with Kari too so I guess I was just a little over 1 mile. I laugh when I attempt to do a 1 mile run because it usually takes me about 2.5 miles to really get going so the one mile run feels like it is going to kill me! But it was still nice to get out there. You never know what Ohio weather will bring so when it brings sunshine and warm weather you make sure to get out there and enjoy it!
Most of the ladies aren’t big runners but they do such a great job when they get out there and push themselves! It is so motivating to see people out there doing things outside of their comfort zone and it is a reminder to me that I need to get out there and start pushing myself out of my comfort zone. Sure, my comfort zone has grown a little but each time you get comfortable I think it is important.
Still want to be able to run about 7-8 miles by the end of the month but I better step it up if I am going to make that happen! I figured out I should be able to fit in 3 long runs a week… and on top of that I am doing a wedding challenge!
The wedding challenge includes 52 burpees a day (for this week). Next week it will be 51 burpees every day. This will go down by 1 every week and eventually right before the wedding I will be down to NONE! But before I get to none I’ll work my butt off and hopefully had a pretty stellar back and arms from all of those push-ups! My mom is also doing this (she gave me the idea) along with her client Patti and of course Tim has joined in! My dad is doing regular push-ups instead of burpees but he is getting sore!
I’ll keep you updated on that because that will probably be pretty tough to do!
