I feel drained. I still am not sleeping much at all. I thought I knew what heartburn was, but these last few weeks are showing me what heartburn really can be. It is more than an unpleasant annoyance. It rages. I get up at 3 in the morning, sit on the couch and pop tums, waiting for it to go away. Today was not one of those days.
I keep looking at half-marathon plans, dreaming of a post-partum running come back. My best half last year was a three times a week plan. I think that really worked for me and my body, so I’m thinking about getting Run Less, Run Faster and following one of those plans, after I’m all recovered of course.
I am less than a week until my due date. I did half Murph yesterday (will post about that soon — you can see last year’s here) and will keep working out, however modified, until this baby decides to make his or her appearance.
5 – 20 : CrossFit – Helen (modified) – 3x 400m row, 21 kettle-bell swings @ 15 lbs., and 12 ring rows. Even though I heavily modified Helen, I loved this work-out. Every time I would get back on the rower, I would feel another swing of energy and would try to sprint through it. I think it was just hard enough — I did not feel like I was overdoing it, but I also did not feel like the modifications made it too easy. 12 minutes 4 seconds. Walked – 1 mile, 20 minutes.
5 – 21 : CrossFit – for time – 4x 3 hang squat-cleans @ 50 lbs., 6 box step-ups @ 20 in.; 2x 6 hang squat-cleans @ 45 lbs., 12 box step-ups @ 20 in.; 1x 12 hang squat-cleans @ 35 lbs, 24 box step-ups @ 20 in. 12 minutes, 29 seconds. Another fun one. I think the hardest was the second set with the two rounds of six. It got just spicy enough.
5 – 22 : Rest.
5 – 23 : CrossFit – Row for 120 calories. 9 minutes 56 seconds. I did actually come in with a goal for this. I wanted to stay under ten minutes. I thought 60-100 calories was the hardest part, but after 100 calories I could muscle through it and just get it over with.
5 – 24 : Rest.
5 – 25 : Rest.
5 – 26 : Rest
Total : 3 hours, Crossfit. 20 minutes, 1 mile walk. 3 hours and 20 minutes.
