Another Long One 279/365

Today was Day 3 Of 3 at Orange Theory. And, it ROCKED. This may be, okay no it is my favorite workout I’ve done there. It was power day which is probably my fave of the focuses it was a switch day which means I wasn’t doing anything for very long, and it was a run/row day and well we should know how I feel about rowing by now. But, today it was awesome. Longest row was 200 meters and every round it decreased by 50 so short rows. I can handle those.

Let’s talk about the run/row blocks first. There were 3. Do a block then switch to floor, back to treads, floor you get the idea. So there was a total of 6 switches today. So lots of moving around. Okay so here’s how he blocks went:

First block:

Run 0.2 at push pace then row 200 meters each round decrease row by 50 meters. If complete 3 rounds run for distance till time is called.

Second block:

Everything the same except run 0.15

Third block:

Everything except run 0.1 at all out pace

I crushed this part of the workout. I hit my fastest paces yet. Each block I upped my pace. As for the rowing I was consistent every time. My 200 meter rows were 46-47 seconds and my 150 meter rows were 35-36 seconds. Every. Single. Time. That is amazing for me. I hate rowing but I’m slowly making improvements.

The floor blocks were intense. The first block had us doing a new exercise. A reverse lunge to lateral step up. I didn’t do this as I’m not supposed to do lunges but I don’t really listen. I did static lunges instead. Along with this new move we did dumbbell pull overs and scissor kicks complete.

The second block had us Doug 3 exercises for 30 seconds with a 15 second rest. They were jump lunges, I did air squats, Y raises on the TRX, and mountain climbers.

The final block yeah I’m drawing a blank on I know there were weighted Russian twists and knee tucks but I can remember what the first one was I’m sure it was something to do with lunges since today seemed to be the day of lunges.

It was a good day at OTF and I’m going to enjoy my day off from OTF tomorrow, and a bit bummed but also happy I’m missing Everest Day.

I came home and started putting my house to rights. Being at the office all week makes keeping up with housework a bit of an I don’t care type situation. I folded 3 loads of laundry got 2 more done still have 2 more to do which will happen tomorrow. Ran the vacuum through the house quick. My floors are in serious need of some love.

A friend stopped by for a visit for a little while. After she left I whipped up a Paleo Pumpkin Coffee Cake that I’ll be munching on part of the week. The other half is in the freezer for another week.

Here’s the recipe I used Paleo Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Pretty much as soon as I had pulled this wonderful pan of deliciousness my phone rang. It was a leader from Roc Solid and she wouldn’t be able to drop of the equipment for my project tomorrow. So I ran out the door and drove the 45 minutes over to the warehouse where we loaded up my car with everything and then I proceeded t drive back home.

It was time for dinner and well dinner tonight was pretty tasty if I must say so. Cilantro Lime Shrimp Scampi over Zoodles. I also had a salad with it.

I liked this a lot however I definitely like making my Shrimp Scampi with spaghetti squash better. I make a classic shrimp scampi and put it over spaghetti squash. The cilantro lime definitely gave it a great flavor and completely different from your classic Scampi sauce. I’ll be making this again.

If you want to give this a try here’s the recipe Cilantro Lime Shrimp Scampi

So yeah there’s my Sunday in a nutshell. How about you are you enjoying your Sunday?
