Happy weekend! Mine is a balance between hanging out and relaxing and running around trying to get the last of Christmas taken care of. This month flew by!
It is a beautiful day here in North Carolina – 72 and a little overcast with peeks of sunshine coming through the clouds.
It was too nice not to run outside so I turned on my audio book (Me Before You) and hit the road. My original thought was to do an easy three but once I started running four sounded nice. Before I knew it I was at the point to turn for four or go for five…and I kept running. It felt amazing. I didn’t stop a single time to walk and the run felt effortless. I can’t even tell you how good it feels to finally be running like this after struggling for so long. I can actually fathom the thought of running a half marathon again. Maybe this spring??? 🙂
Body and mind are feeling so good right now. I’m grateful.
And here’s the rest of the week’s workouts.
10 Bear Complex’s For Time & Weight
1. Power Clean
2. Front Squat
3. Push Press
4. (3) Back Squats
5. Push Press
I did my bear complex at 65# and in about 4:40. What is a bear complex you may ask? It’s the movements above linked together. I happen to have a video of it…
It’s a killer combination of movements and very effective total body training. I love it.
After the WOD I did 40 more front squats and 20 more back squats at 65# to bring my squat total for the day to 100. I recently started “Squat Mondays” where I’m doing 100 squats. They are my favorite thing to do!
Hot vinyasa yoga with a glorious 15 minute nap during the floor work.

75 deadlift (95/65)
75 push press (45/35)
This was a low weight, high rep workout to train muscular endurance. I finished in about 20 minutes using the RX weight.
Rest or yoga…depends on how my day goes with Christmas shopping and baking.
What was your best workout of the week?
Any spring races planned?
