Weekly Workouts - 2.15.16

I want to start keeping my workouts here and looking back and making notes so I can see what I have done and what I need to work on so here is this week's weekly workouts post.  On Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday I go to a Crossfit gym that has a bootcamp class.  It is an hour class and has lots of Crossfit moves but without the heavier weights.  I LOVE it.  I did not think that I would but I do.  I've been doing it for 7 weeks.  I can't even believe it.  The best thing about it is that it pushes me way more than I would probably push myself.  On my off days I try to get in a 4 mile walk with my friend because - sanity and sunshine.

Here was this week's workouts.

I had a bad headache and had to quit.  Its the first workout I've missed there in 7 weeks:(

I found out I had a sinus/ear infection and started taking meds to feel better!

Wednesday (feeling better!)

3 rounds of 1 minute each, 1 minute rest between each set:
1.  Box step ups and box dips (1 minute box step ups, 1 minute box dips and so on)
2.  Stairs (walk up and down the stairs) and row machine
3.  Air bike and plank
4.  Wall sits and strict dumbbell press
5.  Burpees weight step up and weighted rows

Walked 4 miles

100 squats (split up)

12 minute AMRAP (partner - do all 50/50 except run 200m together)
10 sled pushes
20 Knees to Elbows
30 walking lunges
200 m run

*The sled pushes are always tough for me especially when I have to do things afterward.  But I am getting much better at Knees to Elbows - as in I couldn't really do them at all before.

I think its easy to get discouraged and tough to see progress when you see yourself every single day.  So here is a side by side the first picture is taken early January before I started the bootcamp and the second the picture was taken yesterday.  Not a huge difference but I can see a change.

Its a work in progress and I'm just trying to keep on keeping on.

Fitness-wise I think I have found something I really love and that seems to challenge me in a good way.  I have really liked some other things I've done too but this just seems to be what is working for me now.

What are you all doing for your workouts?  How's it going?


I love comments!
