A little off

The WOD for today was 10-9-8 and so on of squats, burpees, sit-ups...finished in 8:42 which was 45 seconds slower than last time. I didn't feel much different, my heartrate was up in the 150-160 range. Last time I did it, I do remember not hitting the deck on the burpees for the first 2 sets (10/9), so that may have had a little to do with the difference - that plus the quads are a little sore from yesterday's thrusters. No excuses though...it'll just have to be faster next time.

Second part - 10K Bike for time holding a 60 cadence. It was too nice to sit in my basement - so on went the long pants, booties and gloves. I warmed up with 2 miles, and came back to the house for some sunglasses- bright out! Also, probably needed more clothing - didn't think it was windy until I hit the main road. Woah! Anyway, 6.2 miles took 18:26 - held 20.1 mph. I was really happy with it considering I hadn't been out on the bike in a long time and jamming at a 60 cadence was not fun, especially on the hills. At some points, I was at 70 or 75 just because there was a bit of a hill and I was already in my biggest gear. It was wonderful to be outside for a change and it just put me in a better mood! I ended up going for an hour ride - just enjoying the weather and letting my thoughts wander. Total distance 18 miles.


  1. Outside bike - no fair! I can't wait, I am totally getting stir crazy

  2. Jealousy is not a good emotion, but I am feeling it a little right now. I'm itching to get outside. Your pretty damn fast on that bike!
