Beat Coach Pete 5k

This morning I ran in the Beat Coach Pete 5k race at Boise State. I am very please to announce that my time was 35:28 which is nearly 6 minutes off my last 5k race! I was SO excited. And to make it even better, I ran the ENTIRE race. I did not stop to walk a single time. I could hardly contain my excitement as I sprinted to the finish line and high fived Coach Pete. Awesome, awesome, awesome.

Much thanks go out to Tyler, Kyle and Jason for all the coaching, tips and constant ribbing they've provided since the last race. Now do I hear a 30 minute 5k calling my name?

1 Year

So, last week my trainer Ryan put me through a 1 year Crossfit Anniversary workout. The workout itslef was a collaboration between him and his buddy Kyle, who is my virtual trainer since he lives in Texas. Anyways here is what I went through:

4 rounds of:
10 x Overhead Squats at 45lbs
20 x Hang Cleans at 65lbs
10 x Burpee to Box Jumps
1 x Deadlift at 210lbs
200m Run

I finished the workout in 25:24 and was wiped. It was a hard workout and really pushed me. It is SO exciting to see how far I have come in the last year though.
