Last week I posted about my training plans for the Run Melbourne half marathon in 10 weeks. I’ve been following my training plan fairly well, with the main priorities getting in at least two runs and three Crossfit sessions – a priority being one LONG training run too!
Week 2 Actual Training: (11th – 17th May)
Monday: Strength was a Snatch Complex (30kg) followed by the WOD was “Grace in the middle” – I did it in 17:48 mins with 30kg clean and jerks.
50x Wall Balls (30, 10ft/20, 10ft)
30x Clean & Jerks (60/40)
15x Muscle Ups
Tuesday: Back Squats 3×8@77%1RM – I did 60kg. I completed the WOD at 16:45mins at 60kg for the deadlift.
3 Rounds For Time:
21x Box Jumps (24″/20″)
12x Deadlifts @BW
Wednesday: A tempo run around the oval after work. It felt OK, and I pushed myself too. Running around the oval is working out well.
Thursday: Strength was a Clean & Jerk Complex (45kg), followed by this WOD which I completed 120 reps.
“OPEN WOD 13.1”
AMRAP In 17Mins:
30x Snatches (30/20)
30x Snatches (60/35)
30x Snatches (75/45)
As Many Snatches As Possible In Remaining Time @95/55
Sunday: Looking at my average heart rate (174) and max (183), I’m starting to think I’m slowly getting fitter. I’m feeling less like I’m going to pass out on longer runs too – like they were taking out so much energy before. I’m also learning to take these longer runs a little slower, and not worry so much about the pace! I had a sore back from the start (that time of the month), and sore ankles again – and found myself running on the edge of the concrete path on the grass a fair bit.
How’s your training going?
