Weekly Workouts & Some Weekend Pics

Yay, I got in 4 sessions of CF this week!  Things started out pretty rough and I couldn't be convinced to leave my couch on Monday, but the workout didn't look too bad on Tuesday so I hit class back to back with Barbell Club.  This week was a deload week at the gym, but I still managed to get pretty sore from all the barbell work and some pull ups.  My back felt ok throughout the week since the lifts were pretty light :)

S - Rest

M - Living room yoga

T - CrossFit x 2
  • WOD: 20 minute AMRAP
    • 200m Row
    • 10 Burpees
    • Alternate rounds with a partner, rest while partner is working.
    • We got 11 rounds + the row + 9 burpees, so close to finishing 12!
  • Barbell Club:
    • 10x1 Deadlifts with a pause at the shin, below the knee, and above the knee, 85#
    • 7x1 Hang Clean with a pause below the knee, 120#
    • 5x2 Squat Clean from the hip, 105#
My CF friends' new puppy and my new lifters that another gym friend gifted me since his wife never really used them.

W - CrossFit
  • Strength: Front Squat - 5 at 40% (55#), 5 at 50% (75#), 5 at 60% (85#)
  • WOD:
    • 800m Run
    • 50 Overhead Squats (45/35)
    • 30 Pull Ups
    • 12 minute cap - I finished in 10:13 Rx!
Th - Rest (and an awesome trip to the chiropractor)

F - CrossFit
  • Strength: Squat Clean - 5 at 40% (65#), 5 at 50% (75#), 5 at 60% (85#)
  • WOD:
    • 21-15-9
    • Power Cleans (95/65)
    • Lunges (no weight, left + right = 1 rep)
    • 6 minute cap

Ugh... I was the only person in class not to finish this under the cap.  I got through 83 reps out of 90, Rx.  In the first round everyone was dropping their bar to start the lunges and I still had 10 cleans left!  My quads were on fire the whole way.  I felt pretty down on myself but I just kept trying to remember that I still got a great workout in and I've come so far!  I used to feel really awkward and unsure during squat cleans and now I love them.  And I know I'm due for a clean PR really soon.  Comparison really is the thief of joy...

S - 9 Holes of Golf + 1 mi walk with Butler - I thought golf was going to be rough since I hadn't played in 2 years, but I wasn't too bad!

And here's some more shots from the weekend. On Saturday we celebrated Carter's first birthday at the Trenton Thunder game!

My Sunday consisted of two back to back baby showers.  A huge congrats to Christine, who's little baby boy Tristan came into the world this week!  He was 6 weeks early and I couldn't believe how amazing Christine looked considering she just left the hospital from her C section.  She's in the middle with the black v-neck dress.

Leah's little bundle of joy is due in October and she was convinced she knew the date of her shower, sometime in August...

And just like that, the weekend is over!

Do you compare yourself to others in the gym?  Did you do anything fun this weekend?
