I’ve been complaining for the past few weeks about my low amount of miles since starting CrossFit but this week I feel pretty good about my runs. Even though I still logged a very low amount of miles (15) it was nice getting 4 runs in this week. Now that CrossFit is over I’ll be able to start upping my miles again and mixing up my runs. Believe it or not, I’m actually looking forward to speed work, hill training, and strides.
One of the workouts from last week deserves some special attention. Wednesday’s Run for Boston 5k. I loved this one for so many different reasons.
This was a community run / walk in honor of Boston. It look place at the Irish Coast Pub where I run on Wednesday nights (when I can make it, that is). Typically we have 15-20 runners at the pub but this week there were almost 500 and over $10,000 was raised for Boston. Simply amazing. I know I say this a lot, but the running community never ceases to amaze me.
And now onto my workouts. This the breakdown of my daily workouts for last week. Any time you see AM circuit, it refers to this graphic:
Monday: AM circuit.
Tuesday: AM circuit, 3 mile run, CrossFit (sprints, kettlebell swings, hang snatches).
Wednesday: AM Circuit, Run for Boston 5k
Thursday: Yoga, 2 mile run, Crossfit (double unders, rowing, squats, pushups and pullups).
Friday: Nada, nothing.
Saturday: 7 mile run, 25 minutes HIIT
Sunday: Rainy rest day.
I’ve been doing the above AM circuit for the past two weeks and have really enjoyed it. However, my poor husband hasn’t. I guess there’s just something annoying about your wife jump roping at 5:45am. I tried different room and even going outside but he swears I keep waking him up. *whomp whomp* So this week I’m changing it up a bit. i.e. No jump roping.
Feel free to join to me. I created this circuit to address my weak hip flexors, and to increase upper body and core strength. The last circuit took about 10 minutes to do so I’m assuming this one will take in between 10-15.
Question: Does your early morning routine ever bother others in your house?
