Believe it can be done!  I believe!  lol  - So, I had such great plans for my workout yesterday, but was struck down with a major sinus headache/clogged nose.  At least I ran on my treadmill yesterday morning.  I have to say, this whole "fast for 16 hours/eat for 8" is pretty simple.  I actually ate 7 out 8 key food types yesterday - the only one I missed was the "berry" category and I would have eaten that if I had eaten blueberry yogurt instead of cherry.  I thought cherries were berries, but guess what?  They're not.  Oh well, not bad.  I didn't weigh this morning because I HATE to turn on the bathroom light in the morning when I get up - it's just TOO bright!!  I'll weigh when I go up after drinking my coffee.  I will also do my measurements today and get those posted - it has been four months since I started CrossFit!

I posted today's pic because my workout has running, but I'm actually not sweating it.  I plan to run ALL of the 200 meters (1/8 mile, 8 blocks) and half of the 400 meters (1/4 mile - 8 blocks running/8 blocks walking).  Then, when I do the 800 meters (1/2 mile) I will run 8 blocks, walk 8 blocks, run 8 blocks, walk 8 blocks - so I'll be running 1/2 of the prescribed 800 meter run.  I actually did okay yesterday when I ran 8/walked 8, ran 6/walked 6, ran 4/walked 4, ran 2/walked 2+ until I hit 10 minutes.  The distance on that was whatever 1/2 mile plus  1/8 mile plus 1 block come up to.  It's too early for me to do the math!  lol - I'm actually not bemoaning having to run today and THAT'S always a good thing!!  ;)

For time:
   15 thrusters w/30 lbs
   Run 200 meters (.124/mile = 1/8 mile)
   20 thrusters w/24 lbs
   Run 400 meters (.249/mile = 1/4 mile)
   30 thrusters w/20#
   Run 800 meters (.497/mile = 1/2 mile)

Since running is in today's workout, I'll probably bike for 10 minutes after I take Hayley to school and before I go to the dungeon for work.  For those of you who don't know, my husband and I own a trucking company and we moved the office to our basement earlier this year.  I now refer to the basement/office as "the dungeon".  I'm lucky - I only have to work a couple hours a day, so I can't complain too much!  :)

20:25 - SO mad!!  I set a personal goal of 20 minutes, but I was over...granted, it's just a little bit but still...it's over.  :/  BUT, I did run half and walk half, so I'm VERY, VERY excited about that!  I even ran at a 4.9 speed for the 200 meter run - 4.8 for the other runs and all walks at 3.5 speed.  Also used 31 lbs, 24 lbs, and 18 lbs for thrusters.  Not too bad and I'm super glad I ran, although I will admit that last 8 block run was killing me, but I DID IT!!!  I have the sweat and heavy breathing to prove it!  lol
:)

Forgot to mention - I did ride my bike this morning for 8 minutes and stayed between 15 and 18 rpm speed.  Ended up going 2.55 miles.  Not too shabby!  :)
