Today I had my first exam and I think it went really well!
Tonight I went for a run and it was my first run in awhile since my shinsplints. The shins felt pretty good today, no pain and running felt awesome. It was weird running again after taking several weeks off. I can’t really explain it, it felt so nice and liberating! I ran up this beast hill on Raleigh Rd and my quads were burning and I was nearly gasping when I got to the top. It was a glorious way to finish a run!
Then I went to the Student Rec Center to get my strength on!! I hadn’t been to the SRC to lift weights in several weeks because I’ve been doing crossfit instead. But now that crossfit is over, I decided to go. First thing I did was pullups. I used to do assisted pullups with a weight that allowed me to do 3 reps. Today I was able to take off 8 pounds from the assist, meaning I was lifting 8 more pounds of my body weight! It was awesome! I felt so strong and I am that much closer to doing a full body-weight pullup. :D
I then made up my own quick 10 minute high intensity workout by pulling exercises from previous crossfit workouts. My WOD was 3 rounds of:
- 10 burpee clean and press
- 20 lunges (10 on each leg)
- 20 weighted v-ups
I used 2 15 pound weights for all of these except the v-ups, for which I used 1. I’ll have to use 20lbs next time.
Good day! Now to study for my Geology Exam tomorrow!!
Wish me luck! :D
