Part of our time together was going to the gym to work out too. It's always great to have someone there to experience all the pains and glories with you. I did my CrossFit stuff, which wasn't a whole lot, and he put me through a killer "core" workout. That just exposed a major weakness of mine, so now I have something new to work on. New Year = New Core! I just have to stick with it. I just read a quote in the newest issue of "Runner's World" that I will have to remind myself of as I work on that area.
Josh Cox: "You're not going to feel good the first few weeks doing this core workout, but once you get past that, you'll experience the benefits. You'll feel stronger, and your find yourself holding correct form longer when you run."
CrossFit: Power Cleans 3-3-3-3-3
Go for max weight on the last set of 3:
*When the weight gets up there, it is so hard to create the momentum to pop the weight. I need to work on opening up my hips and really popping the weight. I did surprise myself though that I was able to hit 135#.Sad to say, Scott and I did not look this good when doing our cleans...but image isn't everything, right?
