I went to CF today. We had a ladder circuit, 2 rounds in under 40 minutes. It had a little bit of everything.
50 ground to overhead with 25# plate
30 box jumps or step ups (I still do step ups, running is enough impact for me)
20 double unders or 60 single jump ropes (I did the 60)
10 knee ups on bar
20 KB swings (I used a 26 #)
30 Russian twists with 25# plate
40 calories on any machine
50 weighted lunges (I used a 15# plate)
Then repeat. I finished in 38:15 and burned over 400 calories. Feeling good!
Deb- It was really enjoyable and fun. They gave out free hot cocoa too. I wish we would have started this tradition sooner. You must be so busy with the holiday season at work.
I ran 5 miles today. I had a really good pace. It wasn't cold out at all. Felt good. The weather is supposed to change now and get cold. DH is going away for work, so it'll just be the boys and me. My dad is going to sleepover so he can be here to get the boys off to school in the morning. I plan on going to CF tomorrow night, but then Wednesday and Thursday I have late nights at work, a union meeting and parent/teacher conferences, so I am planning on doing early morning runs and workouts at CF. We shall see if I can pull it off.
Belinda- nice workout! A walk on the beach sounds divine right now!
Deb- It was a fun experience. The boys really liked it.
Today I took a TRX class, the instructor announced it was her last day It seems like all the good instructors leave. I will try the new instructor. The weather was nice today. We picked up our tree today and it smells so good in our house.
Belinda - A walk on the beach sounds so nice!!
Kristin - I didn't see your post last night (must have been so tired). That was a tough CF workout! It is fun cutting down the tree I have a couple of days off because I need to go to the stores closer to the holidays but it has been crazy and will get crazy LOL.
Hey guys. CF workout today. It was a shoulder torcher! We had to do shoulder snatches from the ground to overhead (as many reps as possible) then hand release push-ups with a downward dog, then one-minute high plank, one minute low plank. You do as many rounds as you can in the 30-minute time cap, and your score is your ground to overhead snatches reps. I had 96 at the end. I did 30, 30, 20, 16. My shoulders are fried.
Deb- I love the smell of the pine tree in the house! I have not even started my holiday shopping!
Hey guys. I know I fell off the map again. It was a crazy week. DG had to go to California for work for the week and I had a union meeting plus parent/teacher conferences on two separate nights. Luckily, I had my dad sleepover to stay with the boys while I was at work. Anyway. . . I still did get in five days of workouts, so I am proud of myself.
I am really starting to see results from Crossfit. My stomach is flatter, my pants are fitting better and my back. . . my husband says I have sexy back muscles, lol. Running seems much easier too. Not sure if it is because I have been running for a year now or CF makes it easier. Definitely an improvement though. Still have not gone on the scale. I won't do so until after Christmas. Then I will start a real diet for January.
We are going to the CF holiday party on Friday. I am really looking forward to it. The owner pays for it all. So cool. I am bringing DH. I am hoping someone can convince him to try it out, lol.
Belinda- glad you had a great time in Miami. One day DH and I will get away for a long weekend and go there.
Deb- I might start buying more gifts online. My dad is having the boys sleepover Friday night. So we might go shopping early Saturday morning. We shall see.
Today I did PiYo Sculpt. I did all my Christmas cooking which is good but it took me all day
Belinda - Traveling and vacations can knock you out. Hope you are catching up on rest
Kristin - It’s nice that you have your father to help, he must enjoy spending time with the boys. Wow, I can’t believe you have been running for a year already! It’s awesome you are seeing results. That is so nice CF is having a Christmas party.
Hey guys CF workout. We had to do 20 back squats without putting the barbell down, finding the weight you can do them at. I did 10 at 55# and then added another 10 #, did the 20 at 65#. My back is sore from holding the bar. Then we did 5 deadlifts plus 20 double under attempts. That is when you jump rope, but try to get the rope over 2X for one jump. I got maybe two real double unders, kepting failing. I was never that coordinated, lol.
Deb- love how you are getting your Christmas cooking done this early. Do you have much more shopping to do. This weekend is my powershopping weekend.
