Week in Workouts 5

Hey there!  Today is an exciting day for me because it marks Day 1 of training for the NYC Marathon (!!!) on November 2 (aka 16 weeks away)!  For the past few weeks, I’ve been keeping my base miles at around 15/week and getting to crossfit about 3-4 times a week.  So for now, my training shouldn’t look too much different than what I’ve been doing lately.  But it’s still exciting to think that in 4 short months (pending any disasters) I’ll be lining up on Staten Island to run NYC.  So let’s check out what my last non-training week looked like…

Monday 7/7-CrossFit. I had to get my butt to a 6am class, as I was flying out of state for work Monday afternoon.  The workout was brutal, especially for 6 o’clock in the morning!  It was 4 rounds (each for time) of 500m row, 400m run.  I was pretty consistent with 4:31, 4:30, 4:31, 4:29 for the 4 rounds.  Tough, but at least it felt good to get my workout out of the way!

Tuesday 7/8- 4 easy miles.  Again, I woke up verryyyy early to get this run in.  As much as I wanted to explore the area, I didn’t have much time and had to stick to the hotel gym.  With only two treadmills and one elliptical, it was pretty tight feeling…especially once I got warmed up and started sweating.  4 miles at 9:50ish pace, done and out of the way for the day!

20140708-101732-37052062.jpg Wednesday 7/9- CrossFit.  Boyfriend came to my box and we did a killer 20min AMRAP (As Many Rounds/Reps As Possible) of 10 burpees, 20 pushups and 40 squats.  I completed 5 rounds plus got through 27 squats.  This was a sweaty one, folks!  Evidence: 516Thursday 7/10- CrossFit.  Coach Tyler made us basically do a workout as a warm-up (10 wall balls, 3 burpees, 9 wall balls, 3 burpees, 8 wall balls, 3 burpees, etc…down to 1 and 3).  Then we did a partner WOD for time.  I had to get a different buddy than Liz because her friend Kailey (Hi, Kailey!) came in for a drop-in so they partnered up. The workout was 2000m row (500 m increments each) then…3 Rounds of 40 KB swings, 40 burpees, 40 V-ups (10 rep increments each partner) then…1 mile run (400m increments each) My partner and I finished in 35:29

Friday 7/11- Rest

Saturday 7/12- 8 mile long run (10:28 avg pace), with some awesome inspiration along the way:



Sunday 7/13- Rest

And now onto MARATHON TRAINING!  Let’s do this!
