Repost: Vacation WODs

Originally posted on another blog I write anonymously, but re-posted here because I want this blog to represent my entire journey since starting CrossFit.

Husbeetle and I had fun doing some independent Crossfitting while we were away on vacation. He just feels better if he works out. I need to workout to keep my brain working properly. If I don't, I start to stress out and flip out about stuff. Not good.

The trainers at CrossFit Philly(CFP) started things off right by posting two potential workouts for members of our gym to do on vacation. I'm not sure why, but the blog post was later taken down, so I'll copy and paste the workouts from my feed reader.

Option A
50 Squats
50 Push Ups
50 Walking Lunges
50 Sit Ups
50 Pledge Push Ups

Option B
3 Rounds
Run 400m
20 Leg Lifts
20 Push Ups
20 Jump Squats

I didn't like Option A because Husbeetle would be able to finish so much faster than me - I'm slow with pushups. Improving, but still slow. I refuse to do any on my knees, so I have to take breaks a lot. I can do them all, it just takes a while... And I was feeling the same way about Option B.

So on Sunday morning I decided to look back through the CFP blog to find workouts that didn't require equipment. Then I Googled "vacation CrossFit workout", and I found a great discussion topic in the CrossFit forums with a list of workouts that mostly don't require any equipment.

With all of those inputs, here's what we ended up with.

Sunday 8/31 - based on this, w/out kettlebells
4 rounds; 1 minute of each exercise; 2 minutes rest between rounds
- Pushups
- Burpees
- Squats
- Pledge pushups
- Plank

Monday 9/1
Option A from CFP.
C - 20:00 (approx) (damn pushups slowing me down!)
H - 9:20

Tuesday 9/2 - based on this
4 rounds; 1 minute of each exercise; 2 minutes rest between rounds
- Deep In&Outs
- Pledge pushups
- Alternating reverse lunges
- T-stabilization pushups
- Plank

Wednesday 9/3
I needed a day of vacation, so I walked on the beach and swam in the ocean. :) Husbeetle went running for about 40 minutes.

Thurday 9/4 - OBX WOD
- Hike the dunes at Jockey's Ridge State Park
- Climb the hill up to the Wright Brothers National Memorial
- 2 hour kayak tour in Currituck Sound

Saturday 9/6 - Hannah WOD
4 rounds, for time, in the rain:
- 400 meter run (around the block)
- 20 burpees (in my driveway)

C - 24:30
H - 18:30

Saturday 8/30 and Friday 9/5 were traveling days, so no workouts.

Husbeetle is already on me about what workout we're going to do today. He's not letting me skip due to wet shoes from our Hannah WOD in yesterday's rain. Damn! Gotta figure something out. I'm thinking Option B at the track near my house. We also need to catch up on our tabata bottom-to-bottom squats, which we do on the first day of the month at CFP.
