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!

No Equipment Leg and Ab Workout

I haven’t talked about Crossfit in awhile, but I’m still going three times a week, and it still kicks my butt every time. Most of my workouts have been the same or similar to what I’ve posted in the past, so I guess I thought it would be silly to post them again. However, I finally have something new to share – a no equipment leg and ab workout that I did recently.

To make this workout more challenging, do it for time. I found it fairly easy until the second half of the third set. That’s when I started to really feel the burn in my legs. The workout is sneaky like that. So don’t give up if you’re half way through and feel like you’re not working hard enough.

You can check out some of my past workouts on my Crossfit page if you haven’t seen them before. I also post them on the blog Facebook page.

Now I’m off to the gym. I have a 6 mile speed run on my training schedule today.

For the three of you that like the AHS recaps, it’s half way done and should be up tomorrow sometime. Smile
