Half-Marathon training has begun!

So far I've only had one running workout with Rogue, a "long" run on Sunday (3.45 miles, lol), but tonight is my first "quality" workout with my new coach.  Not looking forward to running at 6:00 in the heat and humidity, but I'm taking my cleavage cooler (laugh, but it works) with me, so hopefully that will help a little.  I think we're doing a 2 mile time trial, but not sure.  I may hold up on posting this until after my workout tonight. ***We did a 3 mile run, easy pace, the heat was no problem, thank God!***

Because of the shoulder issues, I've been taking it easy, so to speak, in my CrossFit classes.  JDP is making me scale the workouts appropriately, so I've been 8 days without doing any overhead movements.

WOD 9/09/10

15min/5 rounds

15 push-ups
15 back extensions
200m run

Time: 14:57

WOD 9/14/10

12 min cutoff

10 HSPU/30 box jumps, 8 HSPU/30 box jumps, 6 HSPU/30 box jumps...4, 2

Substituted ring rows on steroids for HSPU's.  Had to extend my feet onto a 24 inch box, and keep my hips up (almost an upside down plank) and row like that.

Time:  DNF, made it through the last 2 ring rows + 15 box jumps

Oly lifting this week has kind of been a bummer without being able to do any snatches.  Oleg has me working on my cleans and my clean pulls, plus adding in some back and front squats, with some crazy split squats too.  Cleaning from blocks is kind of interesting.  You start from the half way point of the clean, really, then have to find the power in the pull to finish the lift.   It's really keeping me from jerking the weight up with my arms, and forcing me to keep them straight right out of the box.  I think I'm finally getting the hang of it.

Anyway, I have my first PT appointment tomorrow, we'll see how it goes.  I also made an appointment with a chiropractor to get an adjustment.  I haven't had one of those in a while, and I figure it couldn't hurt at this point.
