Go Green Get Fit – Week Three

by Tiffany in Health & Healing

I’m one of 30 bloggers participating in the 12-week Go Green, Get Fit Challenge as part of the EcoMom Alliance Sustain YourSelf™ Program presented by PlanetShoes.com. This is my week three update, you can read about week two here.

As I expected week two was not very structured. A trip midweek messed up my workout schedule and I ate too many sweets, non paleo foods, and had too many alcoholic drinks (Whiskey Sour) at dinner parties but I did end up walking lots so that is a plus. Anyway…

On Monday’s CrossFit class the warm up was 8 minutes EMOM: Burpees, Squats, and Hollow Situps. Skill was 5 rounds of 10 GHD hip extensions and 10 Kettlebell Swings (overhead – 25lbs). WOD was 4 rounds: 5 Kettlbell Swings (25lbs), 10 Dumbbell Floor Press (40 lbs), and 200 meter run.

Tuesday’s warm up was 2 rounds each, 50 meters each: run, high knees skip, backwards run, shuffle, lunges, reverse over the gate. WOD #1 was 6 minutes AMRAP 100 meter farmer carry, down and back plank walk, 200 meter run. WOD #2 was two rounds ring rows and pushups starting at 2 going up by two every set, four minutes. WOD #3 was 6 minutes AMRAP 20 weighted box steps, 40 sprinters, 40 mountain climbers. WOD #4 was a 800 meter timed run. I did this class with my hubby! That was fun!

After that workout I scarfed down some bacon and scrambled cheesy eggs and took a quick shower before I boarded a plane to Detroit. I fully planned on working out at the hotel gym while there and even brought workout clothes but the schedule for the Ford #GoFurther event I was there to attend ended up being too tight for that.

On the first evening there though I walked up and down the stairs of the Ford Field where the Lions play. That was a good leg workout since my legs still felt like jelly from all the running that morning.

There was lots of walking on day two and three as well. Plus it was really fun to hang out with some other Go Green, Get Fit Challenge participants too. Below from left to right is Diane of Big Green Purse, Stephanie from Good Girl Gone Green, me in the middle, Shane of Environmental Booty, and Anna of Green Talk. Many thanks to Shane for the photo.

When I got home from this whirlwind trip I decided to take a few days to get the house settled before I sprang back into CrossFit. We also had a new bed delivered on Saturday so we had lots of furniture rearranging to do and thanks to the wild parties my husband must have thrown while I was gone I had a messy house to clean. I scrubbed baseboards, cleaned carpets, downsized closets, etc. You would have thought I was nesting!

I started this week off right with CrossFit class and I hope to do that for the next two days so that I can take a few off for the 4th of July holiday. It might be another week short of structured exercise but it won’t be inactive for sure!

How did your workouts go last week?
