Streets are still half covered in snow so I wore my trail shoes, fun wearing them through town. Felt good the first mile, legs were a little heavy the second but I'll blame that on the skiing.

Tough day


3 rounds
15 push press
15 kbs
40 double unders

First time doing ALL double unders for a WOD! I have to do 2 singles 1 double, but I can get about 10-15 du without missing. I am going to start working on getting rid of the singles now that I feel pretty confident with the doubles. TMI The only reason I am finally doing double unders now after 2 years is I decided to wear a pad for the double unders. I didn't like always peeing my pants, and I realize it is common but now that I've decided to put my mind to it, it isn't that bad. I am hoping that once I get more fluid with them maybe I won't have the 'problem'.

snowy and 11 degrees. Ran on the golf course road so the snow was somewhat packed down.

  • Hiking
  • 1h 33m

up spruce gap pretty tough with all the snow. Usually takes about 30 minutes to go the 1.3 miles to the top, today it took 47. The trail down hadn't been very well traveled, I think it was just as hard going down as it was up.

Hip flexors pretty sore from skiing yesterday. Opted not to go again today, it is supposed to rain Thursday and I imagine a lot of the snow will be gone and what is left won't be good for skiing.

Not exactly sure of time. Ran the 1.1 mile loop in the snow (4 more inches) with the dog

  • Cross-Country Skiing
  • 3h 18m

7.2 miles....tired at about the 2 hour much snow. Picking up the poles made my shoulders tired. There were 7 of us, fun to have a group. A couple miles no one had skied and we had to break the trail, slow going during that time and I was getting cold since I was in the back. I moved to the front so I could do some work and get warm. Then I was hot and sweaty and then I got pretty tired and moved to the back again. 28 degrees and not much wind and the snow wasn't sticky. Hip flexors tired!

  • Crossfit
  • 1h 00m

jerk from the rack...PR of 114#

10 min amrap
10 back squats pickup from ground
10 burpee bar jumps
10 pullups

Snowed all day yesterday. I shoveled at 7am and noon yesterday and still had 4 inches to shovel today at lunch.

Not going to crossfit on Saturday my friend wants to do a snowy hike so hopefully we do that. It is easy to sit around the house all day and do nothing with this weather.

Going to try a 2 mile run Sat if the roads are bare. I may try the woods, if a few other people have been through it won't be too bad but it is too hard to have to break the trail.

So I was talking to my dr yesterday about how bad the last year has been. (lack of female hormones)

He thinks that maybe going to crossfit 6x a week may be hurting my running more that I think. And that I may not be recovering enough from the high intensity stuff to be able to run like I used. He said maybe you don't run or think about ultras or maybe you cut back a little on crossfit for a few weeks and see what happens.

So I didn't go this morning, felt really weird to miss. Going to skip Wed and Sat for a few weeks and see how my running responds. Honestly it can't get much worse. I miss trail running and being in the woods, but I can hardly get through a 3 mile run most days. Then I cry and then it just all goes downhill.

I really don't like getting older.
