CrossFit WOD

In CrossFit, endurance, exercise, Fitness, Running on August 30, 2012 at 6:45 pm

Thanks to Jess @ Blonde Ponytail for kicking my booty. She doesn’t even know it, but she’s MY trainer. 😉 I love her workouts that she posts and especially her CrossFIT WOD. They are seriously butt-kicking and heart-pumping.

My assignment:

5 rounds [for time]:

200M run/sprint – 15 burpees – 15 plank jacks – 15 hand-release push ups – 15 prisoner squats w/ knee tuck

I did an easy 200M jog, a few minutes of dynamic stretching and then busted those 5 rounds out. It took me 21 minutes because I’m slow and hate burpees. I made sure I sprinted those 200M, so I got some speed work in as well.


Post workout.

You’ve got 24 hours, can you spare 30 minutes to being active? Resting up for my 5 miler on the beach tonight. Have a great weekend!!


Murphy’s Law for Runners

I’m proud to say I’ve experience each and every “obstacle”. Just a laugh for us runners.


Running Memories

In Scrapbooking on August 21, 2012 at 4:43 pm

I cherish all the races I’ve been a part of. I’ve learned something from each race I’ve run. I proudly display all my medals, but what about the bibs? I’ve had them in a folder for a while but wanted a better way to store them. A few nights ago I scanned each race bib and saved them to my computer.

Being the Shutterfly freak that I am, I started a running memories scrapbook. I have a few more races to finish out my year, so I’m not quite ready to order it. But now I have each bib documented in a scrapbook, along with the pictures from that race. I’m telling myself once it arrives I will toss all the loose bibs, but I still don’t know if I can. Either way, it’s still a great idea to have picture files of them.

Sample pages:

San Diego 1/2 marathon page

Marine Corps 1/2 marathon page

The race that started it all, a 5k…
