Tuesday Duathlon

My hips and legs are a little sore from the squats. Got a really good night of sleep though.

Engine Builder – Endurance

40:00

  • 2 Mile Run
  • 20:00 Airdyne

Instead of doing a straight 40 minutes on the Airdyne I thought I’d take advantage of the nice weather. Before lunch I ran a loop around the neighborhood and then jumped right on the bike. My heart rate was stable through the transition between running and biking. The run ended up being 2.08 miles according to RunKeeper and took 20:21. I went with an even 20 minutes on the Airdyne for 7.17 miles and 532 calories.

Went to the 4pm class.

Warm-up

  • 2 Rounds
    • 200m Run
    • 10 Hand Release Push-ups
    • 10 Push Presses (PVC)
  • 3 Rounds
    • 30/30s Banded Overhead Stretch
    • 10 PVC Passes

Midline

5 Sets

  • 40 Russian Twists (35#)

Worked these in between the first five sets of push presses. Forty reps is a lot!

Strength

Push Press

  • 5×45#
  • 5×95
  • 5×115
  • 5×135
  • 5×155
  • 5×175
  • 5×195

Wasn’t sure if I should go again after the 175. I got out my belt, which helped a lot and the weight felt a lot better.

Conditioning

5 Cycles

  • 2:00 AMRAP
    • 12 cal Assault Bike
    • 8 DB Snatches (50#)
    • MAX T2B
  • 1:00 Rest

Was nervous about the snatches because that’s where I got my last minor back tweak. I started out HOT on the bike with RPMs up over 90 and the other rounds were in the 70-75 range. I got 25-17-16-16-16 for 90 total T2B.
