They are popping up throughout the world. There are 3 different obstacle lengths starting out with 3 miles. If you've never done an obstacle race, 3 miles is a good start! My first race ever was a 7 mile obstacle mud race and it wasn't that fun. I was in shape but something smaller to start out with would have been great! In the U.S. You can start off with a sprint, super or beast. Also, with over 37 races just in the U.S. there has to be one relatively close to you.
I've been asked to give one special reader a race in the entry for the U.S.!

So this week my husband promised to take me on a run while he rode his bike beside. We planned on going on Tuesday because that was supposed to be the nicest day. Well, we didn't know that his bike had two flat tiers and a bad intertube. After serching the garage for the pump we decided just to walk his bike up the street to the gas station. That's where he found out that his intertube was messed up since it wouldn't take air. After the 30-40 minutes it took to play around with his bike, it was too late for my 15 miler. Annoyed, I went to the gym to run. I was really looking forward to my 15 miler! So I get to the gym and EVERY SINGLE treadmill was taken!! How is that even possible? ! It wasn't full like one treadmill left, it was full like 3 person line forming to get on. By this time I was livid. So I give up on my pouting party and get on a bike. Fortunately, I could watch my Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men reruns. Once I got on the bike I pushed out 10 miles. That's how my week started. Not to mention I had to work in Morgantown all week.
3/16 Rest day
3/17 Rest day
3/18 10 Bike Miles
3/19 EMOM 100 Thrusters 5 Burpees
3/20 Rest Day
3/22 15 running miles!!
I got 3 rest days in this week. It was tough to get my workouts in since I was in Morgantown all week, but I got more in than I thought I would. Saturday's run was the furthest I got. I didnt need my inhaler at all which is a huge deal for me! I did a breathing treatment before I left and that was it. I ran slower than usual, but it got done. Afterwards I went and bought ice packs, a knee brace, and shoe insoles.
During my rest day today I went to buy a new phone and to get some refuel from yesterday's run. My favorite part of being a training blogger is that it's forcing me to try new food. I was solid on my Greek Salad, Fugi Apple Salad, and French Onion Soup. Today though, I tried the half Vegetarian Bean Soup and Asian Seaseme Chicken Salad. Once again, I forgot to ask for the apple. This was a nice change to my usual and it kept me full for a long time!
How was your week?

Okay, so last post I talked about planning your workouts before the week starts. Heres a look at last week when I didn't get my long run in.
Here is my week of workouts:
Monday: 3.1 run
Tuesday: 15 minute AMRAP (partners) 10 cleans(75#) 20 push ups 15 tuck jumps ... planks in between
Friday: 14.3(not competing) 10 deadlifts(95#) 15 Box Jumps(20") 15DL (105#) 15BJ 20DL (110#) 15 BJ
Saturday: 4 Rounds of Blake 30m overhead walkjng lunges (25#) 30 box jumps(20") 20wall balls(14#) 10 Handstand Push ups
This is an idea of my little rest week. Next week will be tough to get my workout and run in because I have to be in Morgantown, but I'll try.
Yesterday after crossfit, I went to eat with my sister and do some shopping. After I was done, I came home to take a little nap before driving my friends for St . Patrick's day celebrating. None of us have ever gone out for St. Patty's day, and apparently it gets good. Anyways, when my husband came home, he surprised me with a new tablet! He even added all of my blogging and social med aps for me. I love it but I have to share.
Do you have any rest weeks coming up?
