So this morning I decided to give running a try since I have laid off all last week. IT FELT GREAT TO RUN AGAIN!!! I had a touch of discomfort, but ran slow on the treadmill and with my miniscus brace on. I went for 4.5 miles at a slooow 8 minute per mile pace. I was excited to be running and sweating. What a way to start the day off right for me!! After my run I iced and took some ibuprofen and rolled on the foam roller paying special attention to my right IT band.
Here's the CrossFit workout for the day :
Warm up run big loop (3/4 of a mile)
Burgner warm up with stick x3
How many rounds can you get in 20 minutes of :
12 power snatches (I used 38 pounds)
I got 8 rounds and it felt pretty hard. I started to loose my grip before I lost my strength.
Then I did weighted sit ups (see above picture) 10 reps x3 rounds. These are very challenging - give them a try!!
Overall, today's workout was great
Run 4.5 miles
96 power snatches at 38 pounds
80 push ups
30 weighted sit ups
