Things were a little bit quieter on the CrossFit Boot camp front as we had the first of July off as a break week. It was a much needed break after 5 weeks of consistent 5:30 am workouts.
But as of last week we were back at it, and boy was I ready to really kick it up a notch. So much so that I attended all 5 days of camp!
This is the first week in 6 weeks of boot camp that I was able to make it all 5 days!!
I’m not going to lie…there were days I woke up grumpy, tired and sore to the point that I wasn’t sure how the workout would go. But I always found that once I got there and began the WOD (workout-of-the-day) my muscles loosened up and my day was a better day because of it!
I have really enjoyed this crossfit style boot camp with only one major complaint. We are doing things like air squats, burpees, push-ups, and sit-ups to the point that I’m so sore every single morning I wake up.
I am finding it very hard to fit in additional runs outside of boot camp because my body is so extremely tired and sore. I’m not going to sweat it too much, as I’m still doing speed work drills during our WOD’s but I thought I would address it as running is my number one, and I feel like it’s been lacking for awhile.
And quite frankly, I just miss it. I’ve been drooling over some longer distance races (even making myself some race training plans) but can’t manage to get myself out there to train after the boot camp.
Do any of you have any experience with running + weightlifting or crossfitting? Any suggestions on how to recover quicker or to balance both activities?
