I was just thinking about my first half marathon 4 years ago in Seaside Heights…It was an awesome, kinda crazy experience that led me to run 8 more half marathons and 2 full marathons. And I’m not planning on stopping. 2016 races, I’m coming for ya!
Fall is a great time to kick it up a notch. The weather is more pleasant, the colors are beautiful- it just makes you want to get outside. Unfortunately I’m stuck indoors 99% of the time, but if you’re not in the same boat as I am, you should definitely be doing some outdoor workouts including running 🙂
Last night at CrossFit we did one of the benchmark WODs, Cindy. Although I feel like it should be renamed “Frank” because my husband loooves it and is constantly trying to get more reps every time he does it.
It consists of a 20 minute AMRAP of 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, and 15 air squats.
I used rubber bands for the pull-ups, but you can also do ring rows if you can’t do pull-ups. I also did push-ups on my knees.
It’s all body-weight but man, you’re feeling out of breath by the 5th round with all that metabolic conditioning!
So these are my last few days in my 2nd trimester…I can’t sleep very well and I’m starting to get anxious about getting stuff done around the house before baby’s arrival. Ahh!
Hope you have a nice rest of the week 🙂
