Weekly Workout Recap

Good Morning!!

It’s been a whirlwind of a weekend! We were up at 3:50am – We spent the day traveling… From St Louis –> DFW —> Tampa via Plane… Then picked up the rental car, drove another hour plus to meet up with my parents at the hotel, dropped off the kiddo, drove to Little Everglades Ranch and met up with the Pretty Muddy Team. The bloggers arrived and we got a tour of the course, went out for dinner and conversation at Kafe Kokopelli in Dade City. Saturday was Pretty Muddy Tampa!! I had such a great time meeting some of the bloggers I’ve been following for years, and some of the newer bloggers I’ve just recently started stalking following. The event itself was wonderful! I’ll have a full write up this week, as well as a round up of links from all our bloggers recaps!

In the meantime, here is a quick recap of my workouts from last week. It was a crazy week getting ready to fly out to Florida, but I still got some great workouts!

  1. Love this recap of your week! 11:17 for Jackie is awesome!!! I am still working on the rope climbs myself, but one thing I’ve been told is to really use your legs as much as you can. They are naturally stronger than your arms, so don’t make your arms do all the work!

    Good luck girl – keep up the great WODs!

    1. Thanks Meghan! I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to wrap the rope around my leg to use the leg strength. My biggest fear isn’t getting up… it’s getting down! LOL

  2. So much going on here!

    You did AMAZING on Jackie!! I had to five rounds of 500m rows/thrusters and thought I was going to pass out after rowing so much.. ugh.. I don’t know if I’d be able to finish that one like you did!

    And AWESOME handstand!!

    So exciting to see all your strength gains and WOD improvements!!

    1. I could barely hold on to the bar for the pull ups, the last few were ugly. Rowing is where I made some bit improvements. Long and strong!! I am loving feeling stronger every week!!
