Hello! How was everyone’s Tuesday? I was pretty psyched that it was forecasted to be 80 degrees and sunny in the Boston area. I was up and ready to go so early today! Having my lunch packed the night before and a fun math lesson to do with my fifth graders did wonders for my motivation to get out of bed today.
After school I came home, did some blogging, cleaned up the house and waited for Ali to stop in so we could head to Avalon Crossfit Bootcamp at 5:30. I have been taking Marc’s bootcamp class for a while now and really do enjoy the format and his instructing style.
Today we got to go outside to enjoy the weather (with everyone else in Charlestown 😉 ). I have begun to realize that a lot of the outdoor WOD/classes are going to involve running, which I am OK with for the most part. I am not very fast but hopefully that can be something that comes with more 400m runs.
Today my legs were extremely tired: my calves are tight and my hamstrings burn when I walk up the stairs. After class today I decided that I need to put anymore Crossfit classes on hold until after the race Sunday. No sense in pushing through to get in a workout, over-doing it can lead to injury. Part of it is definitely because this weekend I ran twice (4.5 miles Saturday and 5 miles Sunday).
- 0-25 yard line: walking lunges, high knees, butt-kickers
- 3 rounds: 25 jumping jacks, 15 air squats (yeee-ouch!), 5 inch worms
Bootcamp WOD (Crossfit Benchmark workout modified to work outside)
AMRAP in 20 minutes: I did 5 full rounds and a 6th round with the running and ledge jumps
- 400m run
- 10 ledge jumps
- as many chest to ground push ups as possible without stopping (I usually did 10-15)
