Triple Threat

I’m tight in a few areas from the last couple of days. Around 10:30 I took the car out of the garage, fired up the heater, and set out the machines. All I had so far for the day was a cup of coffee. I made my usual workout drink but there was no time in transitions to take a sip.

I tried something different today and put on headphones and listened to Talking Elite Fitness┬ábecause the machines make too much noise to understand a podcast over the speaker. I generally don’t get in to audio podcasts and would much rather watch a video podcast, but it really helped me zone out; my eyes could focus on the pace and my mind could pay attention to what they were saying.

I only preheated the garage for 15-20 minutes, but it was enough since I would be doing all my work right there. Somewhere around the midpoint I turned off the heat and then it wasn’t much longer before I ditched my hoodie.

I did the maths last night so knew I had to average 960 cal/hr on the ski erg and 1,280 on the rower to finish in 45 seconds. Maybe a little aggressive for active recovery because I had to keep on the gas, but it felt good.
