Near Perfection

On Monday I golfed 18 in a cart. Was feeling sick during the NCAA Championship game, started puking in overtime, and was up all night. Tuesday morning I was able to stomach food, but had a bad headache and was exhausted all day. Took several naps and slept 10.5 hours that night. Still felt out of it and tired yesterday. Feeling good and back to work this morning.

Quick trip out to the garage in the late morning.

Warm-up

3:00 Row (750m)

Paced the minutes at 2:05-2:00-1:55.

Engine Builder – Anaerobic

8 Rounds

  • 30s Row
  • 2:30 Rest

I got 17-17-18-18-18-19-19-19 calories and 173-170-177-177-177-178-178-178 meters. Five calories and 23 meters more than a month ago. Can really feel things loosen up and get the feel for the speed after a couple of intervals. Maybe I should warm up more. Not sure what happened in that second one though, where the distance dropped; I felt like I got up to speed quickly and averaged a better pace than the first.

Today’s workout at the gym was rowing intervals with air squats, so I stayed home to save travel time and get more done at work after two sick days. Allowed me to get in a little gymnastics strength and catch up on another EB workout in the garage.

Warm-up

3:00 Ski Erg (665m)

Paced the minutes at 2:20-2:15-2:10.

Gymnastics Strength

  • 3:00 EMOM
  • 1:00 Rest
  • 3:00 EMOM
  • 1:00 Rest
  • 2:00 EMOM

Each working minute I did:

  • 5 Strict C2B Pull-ups
  • 10 Hand Release Push-ups

Been getting in a lot of strict pull-ups over the last month or so, but this got aggressive real quick!! I was planning on a straight 10 minute EMOM but there wasn’t enough rest. Saying they were all strict pull-ups would be generous because I definitely got some legs in there when I started to struggle. Wearing heavy sweat pants and a heavy hoody may have made a big difference here. Having to jump up to the bar in my garage is a big deal too.

Engine Builder – Max Aerobic Power

15 Rounds

  • 1:00 Row
  • 1:00 Rest

Settled on a goal pace of 1:39/500m, which felt great and at the same time was a good challenge. I got exactly 25 calories every time and 303 meters every round except the 12th, when I got 304. Can’t ask for better consistency. Really good sweat after no workouts since Sunday.
