Mon and run

Mondays are incredibly fun-filled for yours truly, and today was no exception. Coached from 6 to 7, grabbed a quick breakfast and completed some errands, coached from 8:3o to 10:30, took Luke for a walk, coached the 11:45 session, worked out, ran home and took a quick shower and picked up Luke, and then coached from 3 until 7:30 (although I did get to complete team WOD as Jeff was once again kind enough to coach). Whew.

I completed Wednesday’s programmed WOD. (Don’t worry, Surmounties, as this is one of three options.)

Run 1 K
50 jumping pull-ups
25 floor presses, 75#

Running, jumping, pulling, and pushing. Uhm, fun, fun, fun, and fun! It was a beautiful, sunny day, so running outside was a pleasure. I also set up a yoga mat just outside of the garage door and completed floor presses there. My goal was to complete all rounds of pull-ups and presses unbroken, and I did just that.

It wasn’t quite as easy as I thought it was going to be. Having completed 150 squats yesterday, my hamstrings were a bit sore, and that made both running and jumping troublesome. I also had to keep my eyes closed as I completed floor presses, as the sun was overhead. And very bright. Nonetheless, a good time was had by all.

Time = 31:49. I think. I know that I was completing rounds in less than 6 and a half minutes, but I didn’t write down the time and then began a side conversation. I may have to do the workout again on Wednesday, you know, just to be sure.

As mentioned above, I completed today’s partner(s) WOD, and I had the honor of doing so with Joshua W. and Anthony.

Partner(s) WOD
In teams of 2 or 3, with 1 person always rowing for maximum number of calories
5, 3-minute rounds; rest 1 minute between rounds (19 minutes total)
— Burpees
— Presses (45/33)
— KB Swings (52/35)
— Burpees
— Presses 

If working in a team of 3, Partner A rows for calories while Partners B & C complete maximum number of burpees. Partner must complete burpees in single reps, i.e., take turns completing 1 burpee at a time. Partner B then rows while Partners A & C complete presses. Lather, rinse, repeat.

I began with the row, and rowed 50+ calories. I kept strokes/minute under 20, and managed to row a calorie/stroke, as I had planned. Anthony and I next completed presses, Joshua and I completed KB swings, Anthony and I completed burpees, and Joshua and I finished with presses.

I always feel sorry for anyone who partners or teams with me, as I go at a rapid-fire pace and I need little rest; thus, Anthony and Joshua were afforded little rest. Both most certainly held there own, and I didn’t get the least bit upset when either Anthony or Joshua rested. Anthony didn’t rest once during round of burpees. Impressive!

Our total was 588, although I can’t recall how many presses, KB swings, or burpees I completed. I did work up a sweat, and had a wonderful time!

Active recovery, yo.
