No Barbell Thursday

Thursday, February 8

Ah, the rare public posting. Enjoy!

‘Twas a rather cold morning, so (after taking Luke for a walk, or course) I enjoyed a big bowl of oatmeal with a tremendously large cup of coffee as I graded outlines. I completed some household errands and then took Luke for a late morning walk. Yup, his second of three walks so far today. He’s spoiled. I didn’t begin working out until 11:30.

And it was good.

It’s been far too long since I’ve completed what could even remotely be considered an endurance workout, and I was excited to do so today.

16 RFT
5 pull-ups
10 pushups
15 air squats
20 Abmat sit-ups
200m run

Why 16 rounds? So that I’d run 2 miles. My goal, which I achieved, was to complete all rounds in unbroken reps. Five unbroken pull-ups? No problem. Ten unbroken cheek-to-floor pushups? Easy peezy. Fifteen air squats? Even after yesterday’s leg intensive workout, no big deal. Twenty sit-ups? The struggle was real. Huh? I suppose it was just because of the accumulated quantity. But, like I mentioned, I completed all 16 rounds in unbroken reps.

That’s 80 pull-ups, 160 pushups, 240 air squats, 320 sit-ups, and 3,200m run. I worked continuously, although I did occasionally pause to pat Luke on the head. Oh, and to move the Abmat off of the gym mat for one of the rounds, you know, because Luke loves lounging on the gym mat. He’s such an awesome dog, as he never ventures far from the garage door, even when I’m running up and down 5th Ave.

Time = 51:51

That’s about 3:10 a round, so I’m pleased.
