Grease U rock!
Hearing from you even though you were in between bouts of nauseousness and minutes from a blood transfusion, you wanted to know how my training was going. And you think I am tough?!
Sometimes a call from a dear friend can be all you need to get moving, and moving with determination and a purpose. So thank you Grease.
So my plan asked of me to get on my bike...4x5k increasing effort and decreasing speed.
So I did just that.
My first 5k, I climbed at the 3 mile mark to end
2nd 5k , the climb happened at 2.80 miles to end
3rd 5k, the climb was at 2.40 miles to end
4th 5k, the climb was at 2 mile mark till end
Beach Rock, Look out!
Then my plan wanted 20 box jumps/5 push press/10 burpess with AMRAP in 15 minutes.
OK, there was no way I could bag all of this due to, ya, you know, so I did this:
20 box jumps/25 sit-ups/30 squats with AMRAP in 15 minutes.
Was able to complete 7 sets in 16:00.
Athletes can sometimes really go nuts with their workouts.
The craziest I got today was walking around with a ruler in my house, measuring anything close to 24inches that could support my box jumps. The closest I got was an old toy box in the basement that came in at 18 inches.
Let's just say after, I dug through that old toy box with smiles and bouts of laughter.
