I spent half the week in Maine and then made my way back to Washington on Tuesday. Whenever I’m back in the area, I train with my martial arts group whenever possible and got in 3 great sessions this week. Because of my schedule I wasn’t able to get much lifting or running in during the week, but I had a great long run on Sunday on the Potomac Heritage Trail, which I never knew existed despite having lived in the area for several years!


Only a couple of sessions this week, but I felt good. I’ll head back to the CrossFit gym in Washington for a few days next week to work on my compound lifts.


As always, see my Training Plan for the exact exercises I perform at each workout.

 Until next week (from YET ANOTHER new location)!
