I did my 2 Mile time trial on Sunday. I jogged 1 mile to warm up, then started the two mile TT. Right at the start of mile 3 a gigantic thunderstorm came out of nowhere. It was nasty and raining very hard. I finished the 2 miles in 13:52. Not bad, but could probably do much better. This heavy weightlifting is really keeping me sore, so it’s tougher to run in addition to all of the lifting. I love it though. 🙂
- Snatch + Snatch Balance (2 Second Pause at bottom of Snatch Balance) – 40Kg
- Back Squat 5RM; 3 x 5 @90% – 218lbs, 218lbs, 225lbs.
- Bench Press 5RM; 3 x 5 @90% – 135 lbs.
Then: 10 x Bound Hurdles x 5 + 40m Sprint; rest 1 min
I don’t have hurdles, so I just did high tuck jumps. Next week I’ll try to get to Faction so I can use the hurdles again.
- 30 Second HS Hold;Rings
- 10 Heavy Push Press
- 3 Minute Rest
Brutal workout for me today. I started with Ring Handstand, and 45Kg on the bar (99lbs). At round six it was clear that I wasn’t going to be able to do handstands on the rings any longer. I was scared I was going to hurt myself, so I moved to handstands on the wall. I also had to dump 5kg off the bar. My arms were killing me. Pushed through all 12 rounds. It was tough.
