This was a much lighter week for me on the workout front. A lot of yoga, minimal running and only one CrossFit workout. Also, two complete rest days. I say this all the time but I really listen to my body when it comes to structuring my workouts. I try to stay true to whatever I feel like doing and not to force anything. This week I was needing more rest and low-intensity workouts so that’s what I went with.
60 minute hot vinyasa yoga class + teach 45 minute spin class
Monday was that practice I blogged about earlier this week where I was SO TIGHT. I could barely fold forward and this was after 60 minutes of class! The spin class was great cardio and I felt exhausted in that awesome way after it.
90 minute super flow yoga class
This is the most challenging class that our studio offers. It’s three times through the standing sequence after a 30 minute warm up. It’s a LOT of flow. I practiced next to a friend and we pushed each other through it and had amazing practices. I commented after class that it was like the yoga Olympics! 😉
90 minute hot vinyasa yoga class
This was my New Year’s Day practice. 🙂
I took a little bit of a friend’s yoga class after teaching in the morning then later that afternoon 4 miles of treadmill intervals followed by a WOD.
10 minute warm up
10 minute hill intervals
10 minute sprint intervals
5 minute cool down
5 rounds for time:
5 squat cleans (done at 75#)
15 push press (35#)
Here’s a video of a squat clean.
I haven’t decided yet. I am pretty sure I’m going to go to a yoga class but something about a cold run sounds good too. It’s 40 degrees, cloudy and drizzly here today. Usually that makes me want to hibernate but it kinda sounds nice for a run too.
And I have received quite a few requests for my playlist from this week’s yoga classes so I thought I would share. I really like it!
I am always looking for new music and putting playlists together since I have to listen to them 10+ times a week! I also think music is an integral part of setting the feeling/tone of class. I’m always looking for suggestions so let me know if you come across anything good!
Was this a high or low intensity workout week for you? Do you let how you’re feeling guide your workouts or stick to a strict plan?
