Mileage & CrossFit Monday

Running stats and CrossFit WOD's for the week of August 5th - August 11th... it has been a doozy of week around here folks. It seems like I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off, but I don't feel like I got much accomplished really. I didn't end up getting any runs in this week... I felt like I was in a CrossFit Coma most of the week...

CrossFit Coma (my definition) - when you work your body so hard during a CrossFit workout that you are completely worthless afterward

I need to have that definition coined... seriously! It is now a term that Dan and I use regularly in our household! The other exciting thing that happened this week in my CrossFit world is that I almost got kipping pull ups! I added a video below to show you what they are!

I have been struggling to get my body to move the way it needs to in order to do these... but this week I was super super close! EXCITING! CrossFit is becoming a bit of an obsession around our house. I think that is one of the major topics that Dan and I discuss on most days we are together. If only I could get Dan into running with me too :)

Sunday, August 11th, 2013 - REST DAY!

I cannot tell you how sore I have been for the past couple of weeks. I definitely needed a few rest days this week to recover. Even with those... I'm still hurting pretty badly. I can't complain though because this is the first time in 4 years that I'm actually seeing definition in my abs! WOOT WOOT!
