This Week

Today was crossfit:

21 - 15 - 9 - 15 - 21
box jumps (or step ups)
sit ups
lunges (per leg)

So it's 21 box jumps, 21 sit ups, 21 lunges per leg (so 42 total), then 15 of the three exercises, then 9, then 15, then 21. Sounds easy and took less than 19 minutes, but my legs are SORE.

Yesterday was an off day. The day before I ran 4.5 miles (well, stumbled through 2 awful miles then did 2.5 much better miles), but I took 2 off days before that because of a sore knee. The 2 days before that I did over 6 miles both days. I don't think my knee was sore from the distance... I think it was sore because the second day was running outside on concrete and my body has gotten used to the treadmill. I'm sure I'll get used to the concrete again with a few more outdoor runs. Hopefully the weather will stay nice for a while now. I'm really looking forward to running more on the Highline Canal trail, which fortunately is not concrete. The Cherry Creek path is so close to home and is fine, but it's all concrete and is quite exposed whereas Highline Canal is a bit of a drive, but the dirt is easier on the knees and it has tons of beautiful trees. I think HC will be my running spot this summer, and Cookie and I are greatly looking forward to it!

Gear Review:
I got a CW-X sports bra. Exciting, right?! Ha! Okay so clearly it isn't the cutest or most beautiful bra out there. But the thing is SUPPORTIVE. I thought one of the seams was rubbing, but it turns out I'm an idiot and it was the tag. I removed that and there is no more rubbing. It's excellent for running and I like the racerback style. I still like the Moving Comfort Fiona, and want to try MC's new Juno which should be arriving at Runner's Roost soon. I would say the CW-X is even better than the Fiona for running (for me at least) because it's soooo supportive, but I prefer the Fiona for cross training.

Wow. What a fascinating blog post this has been. ;)
