Another good workout under your belt.

Keep up the intensity and you'll be ready to join JDR3 and me for a Serrano Blvd. hill repeat workout like we just did today. I'm sure he'll tell you about it as he chows down an extra couple of sandwiches from all the energy he burned attacking those hills.

Have a great weekend!

pierini - Not sure when I will be ready for that hill.... it's a monster. You are "spot-on" on JDR3's eating.... he loves food and never misses a meal. He used the hill work-out as an excuse to have me make his lunch.

JD tells me you were tough on him at the end of the intervals. Glad you are making him work hard.

8/27

CFWux2

5 rounds of:
1/4 mile run (6.3 / 6.5/ 6.5/ 6.5/6.5)
12 60 lb push presses
20 decline sit-ups on 2nd incline
Total time: 25:37.

This felt like a good work-out. I like to get some cardio in, so this was a good combination. I have also realized that logging my work-outs each day adds accountability. Finding the time has become a priority when I plan my day.

I wrote up a detailed work-out log earlier today; however the site was having problems and it didn't save my post. This write-up, being my 2nd attempt, does not have all my numbers because I cleared my watch.

gymgirl - I have noticed you like to get in cardio / runs regularly and think you would like this combination. Since you are in "stellar" shape, you would probably sub knees-to-elbows for the sit-ups.

i too have found logging my workouts helpful, in so many ways. even in a month from now you will be able to look back and find areas in which you have improved. it's very motivating and definitely keeps you accountable.

i will definitely try this workout, and you are right i LOVE getting the cardio in. hehe you end up running a mile or mile and a half and it really dosn't seem that bad since you do it in short distances. plus it gets your really sweaty! : I will probably have to sub knees to elbows for the sit-ups in the decline and not becuse i am in 'stellar shape' (far from it by, the by) but becuse i don't think doing sit-ups on the decline is going to be good for my back quite yet. escpecialy when i am being timed...lol

i'm going to jot this one down and try it hopefully this week.

keep up the great work. ps is this the day CF had the rope climbs as part of the workout? i was wondering what one would sub for those.

Nice work. Those box jumps are hard, aren't they?

Tim - the CFWOD called for 24" box jumps; however I modify for 12". They are hard.... in fact there was a trainer in the gym who commented when I was done how he couldn't believe how many I had completed (150 total). I was covered with sweat, but it felt great. I can't imagine doing double the height.... but when I do, I will know I am "fit".

9/2
7:30 am - 4.2 mile walk on New York Creek Trail with my dog and neighbor

10:00 am
CFWUx2 - push ups and pull ups

Add five reps to each exercise, each round, completing as many rounds as possible in 30 minutes of:
5 Pull-ups (total = 105)
10 Push-ups (total = 119)
15 Squats (total = 125)

I finished 5 complete rounds, plus 35 pull-ups 19 push ups on the 6th. This is one of those work-outs that mess with your mind. About 20 minutes into the work-out you are thinking how can there possible be 10 more minutes when I can hardly do another pull-up or push-up. Squats were a relief.

Great workout, but check your math. I count 125 squats, not 1,350. If you did 1,350, then you are a BEAST!

Enjoy your weekend and continue on, you are doing good.

p.s.

I told JDR3 about a tip I learned in a book I am reading about training on days that are difficult. If you are inclined to not train because of work/family demands, or because you are just pooped, then as a minimum dress up in your workout clothes, then make that decision. Doing this little "trick" seems to work miracles.

And remember, don't have the "all or nothing training mentality" (if I can't do the entire workout, then I won't do anything at all) on those days. I used to think that way during my busy work season and it got me nowhere. Now I use the more sensible "something is better than nothing training mentality" (5 minutes is better than 0 minutes, for example) and it's producing a better result.

Pierini - since you are "a numbers guy" I will go with yours. Too funny!

I have been an "all or nothing in the past", which is why I got so far out of shape in the first place.
