Back In The Saddle
I hadn't seen my trainer in over a week, due to me being sick, and him being paranoid about me being sick. I probably could have worked out (I did run last week, after all), but my body sure enjoyed the rest.
That said, it was good to be back. The garage had a new spiffy machine, with a pull up bar, so I got to show off one wicked pull up (followed by one really shitty pull up, and then lots of shame).
My trainer wasted no time setting me up to get my ass kicked again. He called this "run fran run" which I can only assume is some crossfit thing, but I'm too lazy to look it up, because fran-kly I don't give a shit.
0.25 mile sprint
I did the first 6 thruster sets with a 45lb bar, and the last 4 sets with two 20lb dumbbells because my wrists ached way too bad. My trainer says the wrist part gets easier, and that my wrists will be pretty sore today. Fun!
The sprints were more like "sprints." I was having some pretty ugly cramps on my leg side, so I spent most of the sprints doing 7.5mph. Ug.
60 second plank
15 per side raised leg toe touch crunches
Just to be clear, that's not a gang sign. That's scissors. As in
Because I really don't like clothes near my neck. Ug.
Today is my tempo run, which means I'll spend the day reading over the comments from my tempo run two weeks ago, and try not to fuck it up this time.
