Well, it has been a few weeks. I went on my cruise and abused my body there, as well as last week as far as food intake goes, and it shows. I have ballooned up 10.2 lbs since the end of my cut 3 weeks ago. I feel puffy and am ready to get back on the horse.
I eagerly started CrossFit Endurance this morning. Well, sort of. I am starting off this week perfecting the CFE warm up, and will take part in all of the running endurance training. I completed my first warm up this morning without any problems. It consists of:
3 rounds, 10 reps each:
I didn’t time it, but it took about 15 minutes all said and done. It felt good. I will complete that this week then ease into the actual workouts next week. Can’t wait. See my training page for details.
I ran for the first time yesterday. I did 30 minutes, and ended up going just shy of 3.25 miles. I averages about 9:05 a mi. It was nasty, windy, and hot. It was rough, but felt good to be back out running. I would love to get a 5k time in the 22 minute range for Kirk Goodwin in April. That’s my goal.
