What a crazy, fun week of thanks! We are thankful for this journey and the opportunity to share our experiences. Thank you for joining in on the fun!
Early in the week, we drove to San Diego to spend Thanksgiving with family and friends. We manged to get some great workouts in along the way.
I’m definitely getting bigger and the bump is even more obvious. Everyone thought that I grew during our time in San Diego (perhaps it was from all the yummy food we consumed!).
Highlights from our trip: CrossFitting at my old box, CrossFit Elyisum, running Fr. Joe’s Turkey Trot 5K, and spending time at Coronado dog beach.
Week 18 WODs:
Nov. 25 warm up 500m row (152 heart rate) + pull up progression
Strength/skill: deadlift 5×5 at 80%; 175# (went beyond 80% because it felt good!)
Metcon: Ran 1.25mi with Frankie (165 heart rate)
Nov. 27 (CrossFit Elysium) warm up CFx1 + hip/ankle mobility
Strength/skill: Back squat 6×2 at 80%; 130# (went beyond 80% because it felt good!)
Metcon: “Karen” – 150 wall balls for time; 12:30 with 10# ball (heart rate 168)
Nov. 28 Fr. Joe’s Turkey Trot (5K). Felt great to run with my boys! We opted not to do it timed, but managed to finish in 38:54 (which included a potty break!). Heart rate to 165.
Took an afternoon walk (~1.25 miles) with the family after dinner, taking in a lot of hills.
Nov. 29 Walked Coronado Dog Beach
Nov. 30 Walked 5 miles around Miramar Lake in 75 minutes. My quads were shot from the first part of the week, so felt great to just walk on a flat surface for a long distance.
