The last month I took a break from my usual CrossFit style training and I’ve been doing Insanity (from Beach Body). I’ll get into that in another post, but today is the first CrossFit style WOD I’ve done in a month.
16 KG Helen
- 400m run
- 21 Kettlebell Swings [16kg]
- 12 Pull ups
Splits: My watch broke so this is from memory looking at the clock.
- Round 1: @3:48 [3:48]
- Round 2: @7:45 [3:57]
- Round 3: @11:21 [3:36]
Notes: It’s 100+ outside and I did this at 2pm. Ouch. I’m super pleased with this result. I tied my Helen PR and I haven’t done any of these three movements in a month. Insanity has made a big difference in two ways:
1.) Consistency. Since the workouts aren’t “as big a deal” (sort of, they’re super tough) I’ve been able to stick to a schedule of 4-6 workouts a week all before breakfast.
2.) Weight. I’m down to 192.0 pounds, which is about 5 pounds lighter than I was in the spring.
