Due to the holidays from last week, this was my week to buckle down and get back into the swing of training as well as nutrition. And I feel I did exactly that. Read below for my week of training for the 2012 I Ride for Cancer Ride from Houston, TX to Baltimore, MD.
Today was a really good day – but not because of training. I had all three kiddos today, so I just didn’t have time to do any kind of training. But we had a ton of fun playing all day! So I guess the rest of the week will be make up.
I rode my scheduled 25 mile ride today. Posted time – 1 hr 14 min.
First day back to CrossFit at BoomFit. Whew what a tough workout it was too!
Deadlifts – 5 rounds of 5 @ 155 lb.
21-18-15-12-9 (these are the reps in each set)
Power Snatch 60lb
I ended up riding 30 miles today. It was very nice 65 degrees when I started and ended up at 55 degrees. Posted time 1hr 28min.
Crossfit today to work out my soreness. Plus I wanted to double up and do a short ride. It ended up being really short – just to work and back which is a 10 mile round trip.
WOD (Workout of the Day)
20min AMRAP (As Many Rounds as Possible in 20 minutes):
15 Thruster – 55lbs
15 Pull-Up – I did ring rows
I ended up with 3 rounds and 15 Thrusters accomplished in the 20 Minutes — and totally whipped.
I had a 50 mile ride scheduled for today – but I decided to spend time with the family and go to an Aggie Basketball game. I’ll do the ride tomorrow.
After church – I got a ride in – only 25 miles. With blue skies overhead, I started out with the full intentions and equipped with everything I needed to do 50 (snacks, water, etc). However on my first loop of 25 miles, when I got to the furthest point I could go, the skies opened up and let loose. So needless to say, it turned into a fun, cold, wet, ride. By the time I completed 25 miles I was soppin’ wet and shivering and I didn’t know how hard or much longer it was going to rain so I headed in. It was fun though! Posted time – 1hr 14min. Not bad for a wet ride!
All in all – I think I ended up the week nicely. I’m looking forward to next week as I’m getting a stationary bike for work and will be figuring a way to hook up a keyboard and mouse to it. My goal for next week is a minimum of 125 miles while doing CrossFit three times. Fun huh?
