A day like no other

So today I did my first triple workout. Let me explain, Yesterday morning, I got up and did 5 loops in Central Park. I realize I have so much to learn with riding a bike. My gearing stinks. For the most part, I kept it in the same gear all the way around, and just grinded up the hills. Total distance covered 30.1 miles in 1:40:47 for an average speed of 17.91mph. The winds yesterday were pretty tough, I almost got knocked over a few times. Overall, pretty pleased with my result.

Came home to finish painting and couldn't get the 2nd workout done before going to our friend Fiona's birthday dinner. Had a great time, so I knew I would have a double today.

First workout was row 500m, 21 box jumps, 21 push ups, row 500m, 15 box jumps, 15 pushups, row 500m 9 box jumps, 9 pushups for time. Finished in 10 minutes flat. Had a lane reservation at 4pm and on our way, I realized I had time to do my max weight deadlift workout on tap for tomorrow, before my swim. Even though, I really haven't been able to extend my arms since the pull ups I figured I'd give it a go for a day off tomorrow. I had to do 7 sets of max weight 1 rep deadlifts. Results are 225,275,295x2 (failed on a 3rd try, everything moved, but the bar) 275x2 and 255.

Then I was ready for the pool. I knew I didn't have time to wait 4 minutes as the pool was closing (I had a half hour). I decided to go the first time and then decide how long to wait. First 100 I finished in a not surprisingly slow time of 2:18. I made the decision to wait 2 minutes between sets. Second and third sets were both 2:03, fourth and fifth sets were both 2:12 and the final set was 2:10. I think they turned the heat off in the pool as I got in, because it was really cold as I was finishing.

    Looks like you were doing a new type of Tri starting with the bike, a little strength training & finish with a swim. Well done!!!
