Workouts Lately (And Several Selfies)

 Hello. I'm Sara and I can't stop flexing. :)

I have an awful habit of snapping pictures of myself after CrossFit, too!

Sweaty selfies, anyone?

And then there's those sweaty selfies where I'm also flexing:

What can I say? CrossFit makes me happy!

In fact, Saturday's wod was the highlight of my weekend! But before I get to that, here's a recap of all my workouts lately:

Monday - CrossFit:

7 rope climb buy-in (I did a scaled version, because I can hardly do one rope climb. So, basically, I laid on the ground and pulled myself up with the rope, then lowered back down seven times.)

21-15-9

  • Deadlifts
  • Pull-ups (I used the blue + red bands)
  • V-ups

*Didn't feel great about this workout probably because I'm not crazy about deadlifts and I suck at pull-ups.

Tuesday- Lunchtime workout with my trainer, which included burpees, jump squats, sprints...

This is my personal trainer at work. He looks nice, but we call him Scary Larry.

Again with the obnxious flexing selfies! Happy, happy, happy!

That night I went to CrossFit and did an 18 minute AMRAP:

  • 5 shoulder-to-overhead
  • 10 burpees

*I got 9 + 4 reps. This workout was crazy! My shoulders and chest were on fire! I really pushed myself and felt great afterward!

Wednesday/Thursday- Off

*I was in terrible mood both days, which I think had a lot to do with the fact that I didn't workout.

Friday- CrossFit:

  • 800 m run
  • 40 russian twists
  • 400 m run
  • 40 russian twists
  • 800 m run  - Finished in 11:48 

*I wasn't planning to workout Friday but at the last minute, I decided to go and shake my bad mood. You'll never guess what happened! I was the only to show up for the 6:30 wod! I had the gym all to myself!

 I had a chance at making the leaderboard since this was a running wod that I could do as prescribed (I usually can't do the wods as prescribed because the weight is too heavy). Anyway, I really pushed myself, didn't stop running the entire time and though I didn't make the leaderboard, I came pretty close! Felt awesome when I left and ... more selfies!!

Saturday- CrossFit

4 Rounds (35 minute time cap):

  • 25 Hang Power Cleans
  • 25 Shoulder-to-Overhead
  • 25 Back Squats
  • 25 Wall Balls - Finished 3 rounds + 65 reps

This was probably my favorite CrossFit workout yet!! It was hard. Really hard. And long - 35 minutes! But the time went by fast!

Although I came out with several bruises (on my legs and collar bone from the hang power cleans) I felt like a beast! And I have never sweat so much in my life! I was also EXTREMELY proud that I did this with 55 lbs when the Rx is just 65 lbs!

Seriously? I have no idea what this is about. Lol.

Sunday- Yoga

This was Aaron's second-ever yoga class and it was actually his idea to go. We didn't do anything all day Sunday and were we both extremely sore from Saturday, so it felt good to get out of the house and stretch, though, yoga is never as easy as I think it's going to be.

What were your workouts last week? Did you have a favorite? 

Do you take sweaty selfies, too?
