I'm tired, sore, and don't want to go to the gym - which is exactly why I'm going to go in and dominate! Don't ask me why, but I love this! Maybe 'cause it applies to me on practically a daily basis? hmmm....lol
I am sore today - WAY more sore than I thought I'd be. I'm very pleased with my workout yesterday. I SO did not want to run, but I'm trying to incorporate some sort of run into my workouts every day. I figure I'll never get better at it unless I do it, right? I don't know about you guys, but whenever I do four rounds of anything, it's the third round that gets me! I just really want to give up and quit. I tell myself over and over, one more round after this...one more round after this. What is it about that third round? I forgot to mention yesterday, but after I completed the first round I thought to myself "maybe I should increase the weight - that was almost too easy", but then by the last round I was like "I'm so glad I didn't increase the weight!" Man - were my shoulders sore last night!! There's a little twinge in them and my upper back (across my shoulder blades) - I definitely know I used some muscles yesterday! My feet didn't want to get going this morning either. I stumbled into the bathroom this morning, but after that they were okay. I guess it was just those first few steps...I don't know. My crazy body.
I'm doing another HIIT Mama workout today. They're calling it "Linds", but CrossFit Brand X calls it "Linda".
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of...
Deadlift w/60 lbs
Bench Press w/20 lbs
Clean w/20 lbs
I know I'll use 50 lbs for the deadlifts and 24 lbs for the bench press and cleans. I'm also planning on doing some sort of run/walk on the treadmill today as well. I'd like to go for 1 mile, but it will depend on the time it takes me to do today's workout. I don't believe it will take that long, but you never know with me!
9:34 - I'm happy with my time today! That was a good workout! I did get on my treadmill beforehand, doing a total of 1 mile in 17:54. Sounds bad, I know but the first quarter mile was nothing but walking and slow walking at that. I started at 2.5 speed and bumped it up .1 every minute, ending on 3.0. I then started running and ran for 200 meters, walked 100 meters ran 150 meters up until the last quarter mile - then I ran 100 meters, walked 100 meters. Believe it or not, it wasn't my breathing that was getting to me today - it was my legs!! They just did not want to move! My calves were so crampy by the end of the mile - I was really glad to have it over with!!
I did all deadlifts with 50 lbs. The bench presses and cleans were both done with 24 lbs. I actually worked up a great sweat doing this today!
Another day of working out is always a good day! :)
