This week’s workouts were pretty much the opposite of last week…last week I CrossFitted 4 times, this week I CrossFitted ZERO. Last week I did yoga once, this week I did yoga three times. Last week I rested none, this week I focused a lot on rest. Just like my post on working so hard to relax a little when it comes to food and splurging…the same thing applies for exercise. Some weeks I want to push. Others I want to chill. This was a chill week and it felt absolutely 100% right for my body.
Here’s how it shook out.
Sprints + Squats + Abs
I did 20 minutes of treadmill work. 5 minutes warm up and 15 minutes of sprint intervals. I started out with 45 on/15 rest with pace in the 7’s and then worked to 20/10 in the 6’s. It felt amazing and I was a sweaty beast after. Once I was done running I did 5 rounds of 10 back squats at 75# and 20 supine toes to bar.
5 mile run
I’m so lucky to have a great Thursday running partner. She’s been pushing me out of my default 3 mile runs and up to a weekly 5-6 miler…plus…our chats are amazing!
Circuit Training Class
So many burpees. This was a short workout (right around 20 mins) but effective.
Just a little walk with my furry friend.
Yoga+ BodyPump audition
You read that right…I’m auditioning to teach BodyPump again at a new gym in town. I have missed it SO MUCH since giving it up in January. BodyPump was the first group class I ever taught and I’ve been teaching it for over seven years now. The audition is only three tracks so it’s more an exercise in competency than a workout! 🙂 Wish me luck!
This was definitely a “step back” week for me but I didn’t feel one bit of guilt for it. No 2 a day’s and no crazy intense workouts. It was just right.
Fun note…I was featured on the BOWFLEX Blog as a one of their 10 favorite health and fitness bloggers. A big thanks to them for recognizing PBR and check out the list for some other great blog suggestions.
Tell me about your best workout of the week. Mine was definitely Tuesday’s sprint + squat + abs workout. I was sore for days but in a good way!
