I can’t believe I’m already 5 weeks into training for the Brooklyn Half marathon. I felt like my first two recaps got pretty lengthy since they were 2 weeks, so today I’ll recap just last week! Let’s see how it went…
Monday: CrossFit. We learned medicine ball cleans & sumo dead lift high pulls. An a WOD:
Tuesday: 4 miles (9:53 average pace)
Wednesday: More CrossFit 🙂
Building up from Monday, we learned hang/power cleans then did another workout:
3 rounds of 3 min AMRAP (2min rest between rounds):
1. 5 cleans, 10 push-ups
2. 4 cleans, 10 sit-ups
3. 3 cleans, 3 burpees
Thursday: CrossFit. Seriously, who am I? Today we upgraded from the clean to the snatch. We had a different instructor than usual and I honestly wasn’t feeling him. We didn’t get a lot of feedback on our form, and given that snatches are one of the toughest moves in CF, I was annoyed by that.
The WOD was 3 rounds: 200 meter run, 10 snatches, 10 situps
3 miles Rest. I was stressed and needed to pack for Cherry Blossom and travel for this week, so I skipped my run.
Saturday: Rest. And #allthepita at dinner to carb up for the Cherry Blossom race!
Sunday: Cherry Blossom! 10 miles (10:01 average pace). I “bandited” this race by running with Beth’s bib since she has a #brokenwing and couldn’t. Allison and I ran together the whole time and just had fun taking in the sights. Overall, awesome weekend with my favorite runner friends. 🙂
Weekly Mileage: 14 (probably a little on the low side, but oh well. I’ll step it up this week!)
Are you training for a spring race? Did you run Cherry Blossom!? Tell me about it!
