CrossFit WOD

3 Rounds for time

250 m Row
10 HSPU
10 KTE
400 m Run

I enjoyed this workout, except for the fact that I ate too much too close to WOD time.  Had I been better prepared, I could have kicked it up a notch.  Oh well, that’s what happens when your kids throw your schedule off, right?  Yeah, I blame it on the kids :-P

Time: 17:23

September 15, 2011 – 5M

Marathon Training

5 Mile Run

My intentions were to run negative splits, but ended up with a tempo run, instead.  Guess that’s what happens when the last two miles are mostly uphill.  Should’ve planned my route a little better.  Plus it was still quite warm out.

Mile 1: 10:10
Mile 2: 9:46
Mile 3: 9:23
Mile 4: 9:37
Mile 5: 9:48
Average pace: 9:45 min/mile

CrossFit WOD

Max Effort 5×1 Overhead Squat

10 minute AMRAP

10 Knees to Elbows
20 Sledgehammers
*lunging between stations

I finally remembered to tape my wrists and I was able to up my OHS max from 107.5#s to 112.5#s.  Thanks to Sandra and Jennifer for letting me lift with them.  I think we all got new PRs today :-)

As for the WOD, I got 5 full rounds + 10 KTE and was lunging towards the sledgehammers when time was called.  Today was a fun day at CrossFit Texas!
