I heard it was national runners day today... I do NOT like running.
I run when I have to at CrossFit, and I (sometimes) enjoy running sprints!
So to celebrate National Runner's Day, I lifted some heavy weights at my gym!!!
(what farmer carries look like!)
The workout we did today included farmer carries & sled pushes!!
Going into the workout I was nervous because I had never done a farmer carry before - but I LOVED it!!!!!
A Farmer Carry is where you pick up something heavy in each hand and walk a certain distance with them!
I did 6 rounds of farmer carries for 20 yards at 80 lbs in each hand!
I definitely could have added more weight - but I was partnered with two other people who were still working on building up their strength, so I just worked with 80 :)
For the Sled Pushes I did 6 rounds for time at 40 yards for 90 lbs!!!
Overall, it was a short but fun workout!
I treated myself afterwards by swimming in the sweet AZ sunshine!
