To get everyone caught up over the past few days my schedule has been all over the place.
These days I feel like I'm thrilled with my progress one day, then take a step back on another day.
Thursday's workout was Fran (21/15/9 reps of 95lb. thrusters and pullups for time). I substituted 50lb dumbbells and used no assistance on the pullups. This was the very first workout I did under my regimen that began in October of 2009. Back then I used 1-60lb. dumbbell, did 5 unassisted pullups then used 55lbs of assistance on the Gravitron. Back then I finished in 9:24. Thursday I finished in 9:43. To me a huge improvement. Had to cut short the bike, rode for 20minutes all out, forgot to note distance.
Friday's workout was 5 Burpees/10 pushups/500m AMRAP in 20 minutes. Finished 6 full sets. Finished the burpees and pushups for round 7 and got 160m in the row before time was done. Then I went immediately to the bike for the WOD which was bike one mile, rest that same time, bike 2 miles, rest that that same time, all the way up to 5 miles and back down. So that equates to a total of 25 miles on the bike. After reading some other blogs, I decided I would rest one minute after each. Got to 15.1 mile in one hour before I was asked to get off the bike by another member. I probably would have been there another 40 minutes or so. So as I am riding the bike I am thinking, boy, good thing I don't have too many long workouts (this one even cut short was 80 minutes). As I was saying this I was forgetting about my 13.1 mile TT today. With the terrible weather, I decided to run it here in Manhattan. I was going to do it in Central Park, then I remembered that a man was killed by a falling branch, so I switched it to the West Side Highway. I think I figured out a course and off we went (Nancy had a 10k on her schedule). I was really sore from the week's workouts, but that is no excuse. Finished in 1:54:11. A full 14 minutes slower than my run from 1/24/10. I am not as depressed as I thought I'd be. Looking back, I am trying to figure what went wrong and will try and let everyone know.
