Went to the Crash B Indoor Rowing Championships this weekend, there were 8 ladies from Craic competing – Barb, Kerstin, Denise, Beth, Chanel, Carleen, Nicole, Jackie, and Kelly. Was awesome to see. Everyone did great. I got to coxswain for Denise and Chanel in their heats and it was a ton of fun. We worked out strategy and approach beforehand and I was half-cheerleader, half-coaching. They both PR’d their times (almost all the ladies did) – great to see their hard work pay off. And kudos to them for putting themselves out there and competing like bosses.
Was going to go to yoga with G. tonight, but she ended up working late and couldn’t make it. I’m a big bebe and didn’t want to go by myself, so I went into the gym to get a workout in.
Pull up Strength Work
4x (3-5 reps) hardest variation possible (I did parallel ring rows – think I might try with my feet on a box / bench next time)
Back Squats Front Squats (increasing)
350m Row Airdyne @90%
I did the strength work and then went into the workout. Wasn’t sure what to do with weight, as hip is feeling kind of tight. Did some mobility to warm up and that helped a bit. I did 75, 80, 85, 90, 105 and did between 1:20 and 1:30 on the airdyne. This was a sneaky workout. Crept up on you after you were done with the round. About 10 seconds after each round was over, you felt wrecked. I took about 4 minutes rest in between. Probably could have gone heavier with the front squats, but it’s easy to say looking back. Have to go and get a workout in tomorrow morning.
