I haven’t been posting training lately, but I’m going to try to get back into doing it every day again. I need to keep track of things, and it helps to keep notes and ideas. I felt like running yesterday, so I went out for 5 miles. Here’s the Garmin data if you’re interested. I felt really good aside from the fact that it was a bit warm and muggy. That made it a little tougher. It was pretty easy to keep the pace under 8 minutes. That actually surprised me a little bit. Anyway, on to Monday!
- Back Squat 5 x 5
- Pull Up 1RM – Weighted
The squats felt really good. Worked up to 225# and did the 5 x 5 at that weight. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a 1RM Weighted Pull Up so I didn’t really know what to expect. I had thought that the last time I did it I had trouble with 35#, but I’m not sure. I worked up to 63# using a 53# Kettlebell and a 10# plate. Felt good.
- 400M Run
- 15 Sit Ups
- 10 KB Swings
- 10 Push Ups
Pretty good little workout there. Finished in 11:37. I used a 53# Kettlebell, but should have gone with the 70#. Nothing during this workout felt difficult at all. I should have ran faster. Just for good measure, I cashed out with a Tabata Row. Just one round.
I’ve gotten a lot of good emails and feedback on the Facebook page that have inspired some good blog posts. I should be posting at least one new post this week outside of training logs so be watching for that. If you ever have a question or a topic that you would like to have me write about just let me know. Now, off to work! 🙂
