Serious question: Will I ever recover from 19.5? Everything still hurts from Friday. I am planning on working out today, but full disclosure I still feel wiped out. I’m not sure if it is Friday’s work-out, the excessive amount of sugar I ate over the weekend, pregnancy, or a combination of all the above. But I’m so tired.
After several weeks of inconsitent working-out, it was really nice to get back on a regular schedule this week. I have exactly ten weeks until my due date, so I’m hoping to continue to be as consistent as possible in the weeks to come. I suspect I’m going to have to take it more easy though. Though I feel great during the work-outs, it is just taking longer to recover. I’m starting to feel like a train-wreck after every wod. It reminds me of recovering from a long run or Murph. I’m just depleted.
3 – 19 : CrossFit. For time – 1000 meter row, 50 dumb-bell box step-overs at 20 lbs. and 16 inches, 5 rope pulls, 50 goblet squats at 20 lbs., bike for four minutes 1.18 miles. 18 minutes 53 seconds. I love chipper work-outs. Yoga with Adriene – Hamstrings.
3 – 20 : I felt worn out from the last two days, so I went with Bruno to CrossFit. However, I decided against doing the work-out and instead parked myself on a rower for a half hour. Row – 30 minutes – 5500 meters. I miss aerobic exercise. I miss running. Rowing is kind of boring, but honestly, I loved just getting into the rhythm of doing the same thing over and over and over again. Constant forward motion. Afterwards, I did a ton of mobility. I loved this day so much, I am hoping to make it a recurring feature of my week.
3 – 21 : Rest.
3 – 22 : CrossFit – 19.5. I was happy with how it went, but still feel like I am recovering. I’ll write more about it tomorrow.
Totals : CrossFit – 3 hours. Rowing – 30 minutes. Yoga – about an hour.
