Weekly Workout RecapMonday, July 18, 2016
The CrossFit Games are almost HERE! The last 2 weeks(or more like 4) I've been getting super excited for the CrossFit Games. Ever since I started CrossFit I have followed the Games and all the amazing athletes. The workouts they can endure are insane and inspiring. I've watched probably every CrossFit Games YouTube out there(I know, I'm a dork) but it really got me extra motivated for my workouts. Another reason I'm so into the Games is because Carey Kepler, CrossFit Central Co-owner and Coach, is competing. I can't wait to cheer her on this week!
My back was still SO sore from the Max Deadlift I did the previous Saturday but I pushed through. Instead of T2B I did 30 second active hollow holds on the bar. This was challenging! My hand strength is a weak point for sure.
I love the new toy we got at Central Athlete! Now I don't have to pay $50 each time I want to test my body fat. I'm sitting at 16% right now which I was happy with considering how loose my nutrition has been. But I would love to lean out to about 12ish and with this new tool, it will be that much easier!
Braxton woke up with a shit ton of energy and decided we should run 5 miles! We really didn't have any plans so I was game. We have a great trail here in Austin that meanders right through Dowtown and it's only steps away from our condo which is great. It always takes me at least a mile to get warmed up but after that it felt surprisingly good! I think I need to get back to running more...
I hope you guys had a great week inside and outside the gym! I have to remind myself often that everyone started somewhere and it just takes day after day of hard work but don't forget the process creates the prize! Enjoy the journey-
