It’s been a while since I ran the Davidson Run for Green half marathon. Running isn’t my favorite activity, but I really like having an event to train for. Races are pretty easy to find and good for goal setting. Since starting CrossFit my running has seen huge improvements, so while it’s not my preferred exercise, it is nice to compare to where I was before a year ago.
Here’s the plan we are going to follow to hopefully get there. After yesterdays sprints though my legs were feeling it during snatch technique work this morning (and 100 slamballs). A lot of extra mobility work was required to keep things feeling loose.
It became painfully obvious that I need mobility work this morning when I had to bail on several snatch attempts because my hips were too stiff. I figured this would be something i would need to work on as I started ramping up my Oly lifting, but I wasn’t really aware of where I was. I guess that’s why it pays to step outside of your comfort zone every once and a while. It makes your weaknesses much more apparent.
How are your goals progressing?What steps are you taking to get there?
