Grace and Disney Marathon

Hello loves! Hope you've had a FABULOUS weekend! I've been a little MIA this week - my friend Andrew is in town so it's been a crazy week! Lots of fun WODs - including some new ones for me. First let's discuss that my girls basketball team that I help coach with Ms. Waheed from school - we WON our first game!! WootWoot! Super stoked for the girls.  This is the first year having a team at our school (our first year we have a full middle school) and most of our girls are new to the game, but they deserved that game and I couldn't be more proud!

Workouts - let's chat :) Monday - we did Shoulder Press - 1x5 - I got up to 70#.  At first, I thought I only got 60# but then realized we had a men's bar and so 10 more #s :) Then we did Fight Gone Bad-ish - instead of sumos - we do KB swings! Wasn't so stoked with this - I really need to work on my endurance and speed.

Tuesday - 2-Power Cleans + 1 Push Press - I got 115# but had to jerk it up.  The ONLY reason I got 115# was because of Nilda.  Then we did Grace.  It was my first time. It was BRUTAL. I did 80# and got them in 5:32.  One of our guys Alex was going right in front of me and facing me.  He was FLYING! You can see him in the video - I can't imagine going that fast...yet.  Hopefully one day! He was done and I still had 15 to go haha :)

Wednesday - we did some snatch work before strength as our active warm up.  The we did back squat - 6 reps at a good weight - just building up till you can get there.  I got 145 for the 6 and then tried 150# and only got 2.  Funny - before Christmas and my hip was super bad and took the week off, I had 150# for 6,6,4 -- hopefully I'll be back up there soon!  We then did our boxes own benchmark - "The Garage" -- I went up 20# and down a band and only at 37 seconds.  It is 3 rounds of 10 pull-ups, 10 Front Squats, 10 Burpees.  I did it in 7 minutes.  I'll take it!!

There is a bunch of sickness going around school, so I am hoping to stay away from that. Not been feeling 100% so just crossing my fingers. Megs isn't going be able to run or play with me in Disney now.  She is really sick and trying to fight it. Ro isn't doing the full anymore due to her foot so, she's going to try and meet me 13 miles in or 13 miles out, depending how you look at it haha and run the last 13 with me.  I'm hoping my hip holds up and I can finish...that is my only fear right now.  The weather is going to be VERY warm - I'm working on my hydration right now.  Trying to think of the best way to get ready, but not sure there is one at this point.  Packing lots of type of clothes...it will be an adventure to say the least..  But isn't it always? Last time I ran Disney, my first half in 2010, it was the coldest it had been there in years! So, this just makes another adventure! No matter what - I'm staying positive and happy - always better right? :)

How are you Sweating Pink this week? Are you running Disney?

  1. Yes, the weather always makes it an adventure... I'm not doing Disney, but I am running at Houston this weekend... weather is not looking great here either. 70% chance of rain and windy. Oh well, we did the work- time to go run it! Best of luck!
