That’s right.. I put my name on the board

Todays WOD was definitely a tough one.

first 20 minutes were spent on back squats and figuring out your weight for 5 “tough reps” ensuring perfect form. In between sets we also did supinated chin ups. My max weight for back squats today was 105lbs. Although I would probably go down to 95lbs next time. I felt that I wasn’t going low enough when I was at 105lbs.  The 3 chin ups felt really good and I felt really strong. And so I finally put my name on the board.


After the back squats and chin ups was:
1.1 mile run
3 rounds of 8 front squats (65#) and 30 double unders
1.1 mile run
Then finishing of with 3 sets of 8-12 hip extensions.

Definitely a tough one today. One thing I realized while I was running… I really don’t enjoy it. Ugh! Maybe because I’ve been neglecting my running.
Let’s see what I end up doing tomorrow. It’s my last chance to do a run before the 1/2 marathon next Sunday. Eek! I’m so unprepared.

      So far with the last few runs, no pain in my pelvic area. Still afraid that it could start after running 8, 9 or 10 miles (which I haven’t done in over a month).. eek! I didn’t do any specific training for the 1/2 marathon, since I was following a full marathon training plan.
      You should definitely sign up for one in September! You can totally do it!!

    Congratulations! Making the board was one of the most exciting moments for me at my box. I made it onto the 500m row board with just a second to spare! And good luck with the half marathon. My friend who did it gave me one piece of advice, as silly as it is, to running a half marathon. She said, “step 1: start running step 2: that’s the only step!” You’ll do great!
