WOD 3 September 2013

I hadn´t been to CrossFit for a week again!! :O

But, I did do a lot of other working out. It was actually a very nice week for me activity wise. After that last WOD last monday I went for a run on Wednesday. I went in the mountains and the run started with going up up up for the first 10 minutes and I was able to keep on running. Which made me so happy!! Because I hadn´t been running for a while and I always really struggle with any kind of elevation. So for me it was a personal victory to manage to go up all the way without falling back into a walk.

Then on Thursday I did my very first home WOD haha. I had a bad headache so didn´t want to go to the gym, but in the end I got bored at home and felt like doing something anyway. So at home I did 70 burpees, 50 squats, 50 sit ups and 25 pushups.

On Saturday I went to the beach for my first solo kite session. Well, bodydrag session. I´ve had a few kite lessons and have now bought my own kite to practice with. But I haven´t had a lot of time to practice getting up on the board yet. I tried a little bit this Saturday, but there wasn´t much wind and I was struggling. But it was still fun!!

Then, on Sunday, I had the biggest challenge! A 10km run. I had never run more than 6km so I knew this was going to be hard. And I never run when the sun´s out either and this was right when the sun was out with 30 degrees C. So I was a bit worried. And rightly so. The first 5km were really nice and I ran them quite fast (improved my record!), but after that it just went downhill. I had to take a lot of walking breaks and it really was very very hard mentally to just keep on going really. But I made it in the end and even ended with a sprint to keep the clock from going into the next minute. I´m happy with the result, but I won´t be doing that again any time soon ;).

Tuesday I finally went to the gym again and did the following workout.

I tried to do it RX as much as I could. Which meant I did the push ups properly (not from the knees) and the snatches with 25lbs (as was written on the board). The double unders I unfortunately still can´t :(. During the warm up I managed to get a few in, but I can´t do two in a row yet so it would take me forever to do 30. Instead I had to do 120 singles per round. Handstand push ups I still can´t do either so had to do 8 wall walks per round. The pull ups I decided to do with the green band, which is much harder than with the black band. We had a 30 minute time cap and I made it almost through 2 rounds. In the second round I skipped the wall walks so I could finish the pull ups.

I felt good about it though, because I was using more strength than before so hopefully I´m building strength with that as well. I really want to try to follow the weights and things a bit more now.. which will mean I´ll be even slower than before haha, but I think is probably the best way to improve.

Anyway, not a lot of workouts at the gym, but a good week nonetheless. I have been slacking a bit with the eating habits though. And struggling with the headaches. I have one now as well and I want to go to the gym tonight, so hopefully it will go away in the next couple of hours.

Hasta luego!
