Today's Workout

Perhaps y'all are interested in what I do to stay in shape so I have decided to post some of my workouts here occasionally. I am not sure where this blog it going. It is part running advice and part running log I guess.  Enough with the introspection on to what I did today.  Most of my workouts I get from Crossfit Endurance and today's was just that.  It consisted of:

12 min AMRAP (as many rounds as possible, no rest)
10 Pistols (one legged squats)
10 Kettlebell swings
Rest 5 minutes
6 minutes running clock of:
1 minute knees to elbows
1 minute hollow rocks

I modified this workout since I am not strong enough to do a full pistol.  I did the pistols from a 20" bench and did the KB swings starting with 30 lbs dumbell first round then switching to 20 pounds because I felt a pinch in my shoulder (which means I was swinging the dumbell wrong, using my shoulders instead of explosively driving with my hips)
For the hollow rocks I managed what I could...oooh it burns
I didn't feel like going to the pull up bars to I did the knees to elbows lying on the floor, it was certainly easier but I still felt a deep burn.  I laid down with my arms outstretched over my head and using my abs curled my body up so my feet touched my hands avoinding momentum or swinging motions.

Short workout but damn my glutes are burning!!
