February Workout recap:
Another month has passed us in 2015 and I can’t believe it’s March already! February was a good month, exercise wise. I increased my run milage and stuck to an average of three CrossFit WODs a week – and for me this was not only ideal for recovery, but performance as well as unexpected weight loss!
This month I focused on slowly increasing my kilometer’s to try and stick to 1-2 runs a week to build up my endurance for the River’s Gift 10km fun run that I completed on the 22nd February. Looking back, I increased my milage quite a bit (62%), and that didn’t feel too uncomfortable given that I did quite a few shorter runs.I knew that completing the 10km was going to be hard, but I could get it done. Silently (well until the run day when I mentioned it to the girls I was running with), my aim was to complete the run in under 60 minutes! Boy was I happy that I did!
Throughout the month I also went along to an average of three CrossFit classes a week, and also went along to my first mobility session with the Head Coach at my CrossFit box. I’ve known my ankle mobility is absolutely horrible to say the least – so getting a 30 minute session initially to find out how I can improve it has already been really helpful (I’ve since had my second session and learnt more!) At last night’s session we tested our 3RM Overhead Squat and I must say that while I didn’t PB, I felt comfortable and strong. It all comes down to preparation – stretching and mobility before a workout – and that’s just what I need to make more time for.
