It's time to get back into running, so that means figuring out how to combine CrossFit and 5k Training for the best potential performance. As you will read in a minute, I went out for a run and noticed something really sad...I'm out of shape. When I say out of shape, I mean getting wide around the middle. Most of my issues stem from what I eat and how much I eat. I have little or no self-control when it comes to anything remotely sweet. Cookies...I'm like the Cookie Monster. Ice Cream...who knows why I don't have a constant cold headache. Gummy Candy...some say "you are what you eat," and I am becoming gummy in every way. So I think best potential performance is going to come with some learned self-control when it comes to eating. I say this again because I need your accountability. Unfortunately, face-to-face accountability is always better, but you will be the next line of accountability.
Run: 2 Miles (untimed)
CrossFit: Deadlifts 3-3-3-3-3
*I could feel the strain of those deadlifts in my left hamstring right away. I pushed through it, but I think I will be feeling it hardcore for the next few days. I going to heavily rely on stretching throughout the day today, and we'll see what comes of it. BEST OF LUCK TO MY TRACK KIDS THIS WEEK! IT'S CHAMPIONSHIP WEEK!
