Workouts 9/17 – 9/23

Oh my goodness, it is less than 8 weeks until I run my very first full marathon. I am totally FREAKING OUT!!! As always, I just don’t feel like I am running enough. I am barely doing any weight training. But on the upside – I was able to get a new PR this week on my half marathon! Very exciting and I tried a new recovery supplement and it really worked! I was incredibly sore all day after the half marathon, but the next morning, I didn’t even know I had run! Amazing!

Workouts 5/21 – 5/27

I went back to crossfit this week and I tried to get a few more runs in as well. I am really liking the hot yoga because I get to sweat, stretch and challenge my body all at the same time. I didn’t think I would like it, but so far it has been pretty cool!

Russian kettle bells swings (35lbs)
Ninja sit-ups (14lb med ball)

Hand release push-ups
Total reps each round: 76, 81, 82

Great workout, I didn’t think I had pushed hard enough when I was done but I was sore for 3 days afterwards! I did 5 real pull ups in a row the first round and most of the push-ups on my toes for the first round which is why my first number was so much lower. I can’t decide if doing full motions slower and less reps is better, or modified to get the anaerobic benefit of the workout. I’ll have to ask my trainer and let you know.
