MaryStella's Triathlon training crossfit endurance

Recommended Posts



Crossfit Endurance Certification Day 1 done. All went well today. Mostly mechanics of running. Pose Technique. Nutrition lectures. Injury prevention. Day 2 tomorrow for more fun stuff.


Lost of running drills. I really have to commit to these over the upcoming weeks and up my running skill level.


WOD - Death by 10 meters


Every minute on the minute run increase your distance by ten meters. Touch the 10 meter line with your hand. run 10 meters, next minute run 20 meters etc. Go through 15 rounds out on the 16th.the hand touches make it harder to get the rounds in.

Thanks ladies. I had a fun time today. I came in third place in my age group and picked up a medal at the race. It was a 5k trail race although the terrain wasn't too rough at all. I ran it in 25:57. I posted some pix on facebook of me with my new hardware. not sure how to do that here.


hasn't been the best day foodwise as I wasn't home until now. way too carb heavy.

thanks ladies! I didn't exactly negative split it. My first mile was 8:02 2nd was @ 16:20. final time 25:57 so my last mile was approximately a 8:16. Averaged about 8:13 for the race. Getting better slowly! I have been out of racing for so long my pacing needs improvement. Hopefully with all of the races I have coming up I will work on all of that. I keep making rookie mistakes too like not utilzing my technology. I forgot to start and stop my own watch. I forget to time my splits. All things i work on for upcoming races. Just other there having fun mostly.


I was a little sore this morning mostly lower back but good enough to workout but the afternoon.

actually i am doing the ring dips to try and loosen up the shoulder. I am still doing them with a toe on the ground. I only get one without any kind of support for each set. I am just going to hammer those and other things like pullups, pushups as it still feels pinned and not normal yet. Still need to stretch it!

yeah, you are a super hero mary!


220 isn't that far off from 225 or 230. and you do so much different during each workout... you have way more variability in your training program than like someone who's doing straight up only lifting and basic cardio. add to that just regular ebb and flow in daily energy levels, and you're not really off the number at all. you'll see 235 very very soon, i'm positive of that!

WHOA! you? a rest day? what's that all about? since when does that happen?


(I'm 100% kidding). you're insane. You deadlift a ton. I'm shocked by that, but it shouldn't surprise me. you're a superhero. (just accept it)


maybe you're so tough because you have "stab" in your last name. Everyone knows knives are tough...
