Workout: Crossfit (1 hour and 16 painful minutes)
Tonight’s workout looked like this:
- 1 mile run “as fast as you can.” Translation = 9:00 pace
- 100 jumping pull-ups
- 200 push-ups (chest to ground)
- 300 low squats
- 1 mile run “as fast as you can” Translation = 13:00 pace
After our first mile run, the hubs and I did our jumping pull-ups. We started with a consecutive 25. As they got harder, we alternated and did 10 each until we reached 100.
The push-ups were the hardest and took the most time. After an initial 20 or so, I had to take the push-ups 5 at a time to get through them. Hubs did his manly style and I did mine with my knees on a cushion. The cushion is harder than just having your knees on the floor because it forces your chest to meet the ground first instead of your hips, so more effort is exerted from your chest.
Though still challenging, the squats were the easiest part for me. What’s not easy? Running a mile after doing 300 of them. Running felt super weird afterwards for at least half a mile. Just as I was picking up some speed and feeling better, the mile was done. Buuuut I was ok with that because I was seriously pooped.
As I look into my crystal ball, I see a prediction:
I was planning on posting about running gear tonight, but I’d rather put some more thought into it first. I am incapable of thought after that workout. 🙂
Now I’m going to give the DVR a little love. I am so backed up on shows because “life” is getting in the way. So rude.
What are you watching tonight?
