3/5/17

Not feeling great today. The whole house is sick. Still, got out to the dog park with Tucker and rucked 3 miles with 30#.

I was going to wait until tomorrow to give 17.2 another go, but Todd and Heather were headed back to the gym tonight so I decided to do it at 7:30pm with them.

12 Min AMRAP Of:

2 Rounds:
50′ Front Rack DB Lunges (50/35#)
16 Toes 2 Bar
8 DB Power Clean (50/35#)

2 Rounds Of:
50′ Front Rack DB Lunges (50/35#)
16 Bar Muscle Up
8 DB Power Clean (50/35#)

This time, I got 12 muscle ups in the first round. I did two things differently. On the T2B, I went in 4’s so I didn’t blow out my core. On the DB cleans and lunges, I did 7 reps, rested, did the 8th and then started lunging immediately. I didn’t rest at all on the lungs this time around. My split time was 4:50 so I was about on pace for last time.

When I got to the bar, I did a set of 4 right away and thought, “this is what it should feel like!” Then, I did a set of 3 and some 2’s. Unfortunately, I lost them after about 11 and had to struggle for that 12th. Such is life. I still know I should be able to do 16 and get to the next round. 

2/8/17

This workout could alternatively be titled “Vacation Kicks Your Ass.” Didn’t work out for 11 straight days while we traveled to Thailand. Had a blast, but it surely showed today. Had a really rough time and some of my worst scores ever on two benchmarks.

Helen, in particular, was disappointing. I came off the first run in 1:27, and I was done with the first round in 2:30. Came in off the second run at 4:15 (1:45 run). I’m not sure what time I left for the last run, but it couldn’t have been more than 5:40. The wheels came off during the third run. I came in at 7:50 after almost walking. I had to break up the KB swings to 11-10 and thought I was going to puke the entire time. Did sets of 4 to finish the pull-ups. I’m never taking another vacation again! 🙂

Got in 3 miles of rucking in the afternoon with a 30# pack. Walked around Westminster Hills dog park with Tucker. Did 50 steps of walking/50 steps of running the entire time. Averaged 14:06/mile.screen-shot-2017-02-08-at-8-12-11-pm
