Today, I did something different for a work out. My friend, Tracy, talked me into running stadiums. I have done those since I lived in Gainesville (FL) about 15 years ago!
We did a mile run around the pool complex (~1 mile ) and then a little jog to the baseball field. The plan was-
- jog up the stairs,
- run across to the next group of stairs,
- jog down the stairs
- sprint up the stairs
- 10 squats
- REPEAT sequence and alternate the squats with split squats (10 on each side)
Yep…up AND down these stadium steps! Man…I’m gonna be sore!! 🎶I don’t like it….I love it, love it, LOVE it….🎶 (Flo-Rida feat. Robin Thicke song, by the way.😉). Oh…and once we got to the end of the stadium…we did the SAME on the way back! Except we replaced the squats for calf raises. Oy!!!
All and all….what a great workout today. I needed it…BADLY!!
I am finding the difference in my body and my endurance since CrossFit has essentially been removed (NOT BY CHOICE) from my weekly routine. It makes me mad that I have to change my routine, but kiddos needs come before my own. I am struggling now with figuring out how and when I am going to fit the training in. Help!!!!!
But I will figure it out….! Even if means leaving my beloved box and just do “drop in” classes when I can. Or..go back to the “traditional” gym, where the hours are more conducive to my “after work-after Mommy duty” schedule.
I can tell you that I finally registered for my triathlon on September 12th
