Morning: 60 minutes on the bike trainer
Trainer Warm Up: 2 miles @ 7:30 pace (!!!)
Workout: 60 minutes kettlebell shit
Dog: 10 minutes (1 mile) running the dipshit
Thursday is my strength + cross training day. Exhausting! The neighbor's lawn guy woke me up really fucking early by mowing the lawn a few feet from my head (ug), so I dragged myself out of bed, set up the bike trainer in the guest room, and knocked out an hour of peddling. I made it about 17.5 miles, which isn't bad considering I figured out I can read while I bike. I can't read and SPEED, but I can pedal along leisurely while sitting up straight on the bike with a book. Fucking awesome. I might actually start biking more.
After work I met up with my trainer at the park. He was already jogging to warm up, so I jumped in with him. 2 miles, 15 minutes, and a number of curse words later, we were quite warmed up. So, it's like a messed of version of the fucked up crossfit slogan: My warm up is MY workout. (Since a 7:30 pace was my tempo run yesterday). I hate that slogan. I don't go around telling people "your goal jeans are my fat pants." Dick move. It's less common now, so that's good.
Anyway, ass kicking "warm up."
And then we tossed kettle bells back and forth until my palms oozed.
We dropped a lot of bells, and dented a lot of ground. I knocked myself in the neck, chin, and crotch. Not hard enough to bruise, just hard enough to freak myself the fuck out. Because, yeah, hitting yourself in the crotch with a kettlebell is terrifying.
Then we stretched a bit, which means I whined a lot. We talked about wanting to go back to Bikram yoga (I've only done it with him), but not having the time.
And then I drove home and ran the dog for a mile, because he's an asshole, but it's the quickest way to get his walk in. He's the WORST jogging partner, with his peeing on everything and trying to eat random poop and sniffing, all the sniffing.
Dogs, man. Bunch of ass sniffing shit eaters.
Speaking of asses...
Today is my rest day. We're doing Seder tonight, which means printing out a picture of Elijah Wood and playing with plague finger puppets.
