Weekly Workout Wround Up

January 24th - January 30th

This week was a little unusual what with traveling for work, meetings, and just generally being off my routine.

Jan 24

5.5 miles with the running group. Not quite the tempo run I had planned but still a good run.

Jan 25

Ended up not being able to run at lunch due to a meeting and then after work I had to attend the running club board meeting so no running or gymming or lifting, either. I suppose I was due for a rest day, though.

Jan 26

Travel day! In between packing for and flying to San Antonio, TX for work I didn't get in a workout. I was only mildly bummed, though, because my left leg was bothering me. I think it's time to cash in my massage Groupon.

Jan 27

I didn't get in a workout because I was in a workshop all day and then spent the evening exploring downtown San Antonio! The workshop was informative and the city is lovely so I'm okay with calling it a rest day :-)

Jan 28

3.2 mile run in San Antonio! Wasn't a very scenic run but it was still nice to get out there.

Jan 29

I had plans to get home from San Antonio (7:15 AM flight anyone?) and go for a 12 mile run but I got sucked into spending time with my husband instead. Sometimes you've just got to savor life, you know?

Jan 30

I pushed my 12 mile run to Sunday and while I did it it wasn't pretty. Too many rest days? Being thrown off my routine? Running on snow? Not fueling properly? Not sure what it was but I'm glad that run is over.

Total Mileage: 21
Total strength workouts: 0

I may not have done any strength workouts this week but I don't mind. That's because my CrossFit Bootcamp class starts tonight! I'm not really sure what to expect but their website says that I can expect:

* Core strength and a tighter back side
* Average five pounds of weight loss
* Function that will apply to any sport as well as every day life
* Accountability of goals for maximum results
* Increase in strength and cardiovascular endurance
* Increase in coordination and agility

So, keeping all those things in mind, I thought I'd take (and share) some "before and after" photos. Below are my "Before" shots.

Let's see what this class can do!

Have fun at crossfit, that stuff looks intense. You're brave for posting before photos. Can't wait to see the after!

I think your before shots look great - I can't wait to see the "afters"! And I am excited to hear what the class entails!

P.S. Your hair looks so long in those shots! :)

I'm with Kim - I think your before shots look awesome!!! I have heard of CrossFit but don't really know anything about it. I'm anxious to hear what you have to say - Boot Camp conjurs up an image of a drill sergeant yelling orders or something. :-) But I'm thinking about maybe taking one this summer, so....I'll wait to see what you say first! :-)

Mica said...

Cross-fit bootcamp sounds terrifying. I bet your afters will be INTENSE.

Postponing a 12-miler to spend time with your HUSBAND? Geeez, lady, get your priorities straight. ;-)

Oh my god I'm so jealous about CrossFit. I want to try it so badly and have heard amazing things but it's so expensive in the city :( I can't wait to see what you think.
