Crossfit Ab Workout

I ran two races this weekend, but more on that later. First, I wanted to share the awesome ab workout I did on Friday.

Remember with the 60 repetition exercises, you are doing 30 reps on each side. It hurts me to sneeze and laugh right now, so this is a good one. Also, you probably only have to do this workout once to get those abs you’ve always wanted. #lies

Speaking of that workout, I always find myself at Crossfit the day before a race. I guess I like to punish myself more than necessary and it’s always a terrible idea. During the last quarter mile run, I hurt my lower back. My trainer did a few very painful stretches on me which helped, but I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to run my races. I had a hard time getting up from the couch and was walking like a hunched over old lady through the next morning. Luckily it seemed to clear up enough in time for my race on Saturday. My point here is do not do as I do.

The 5-miler on Sunday went OK. My legs were tired, I didn’t feel great, and I walked about 2.5 minutes of it for a 47:43 finish time. That’s two minutes slower than last year but still better than I expected. That means Ananda is the giveaway winner with her guess of 47:39. Congrats Ananda!

More on those races in a day or two. :-) Have a good Monday everyone!

    That workout looks too intense for me but if I get abs after the first time I think I can tough it out ;) I have only done crossfit twice but I loved it! I would never, ever do it before a race haha you are crazy
