[B][COLOR="Red"]HAPPY 4th of JULY!!!![/COLOR][/B]:pepper:

[B][I][COLOR="Blue"]800m jog and stretching[/COLOR][/I][/B]

[B]Endurance[/B] :run:

I went out on a nice, challenging trail run this morning. What a great way to kick off the weekend!! It was 65 degrees and clear. :highfive:

I didn't plan to run a particular pace but to just get some cardio in. Running at 1400' in San Antonio was challenging for me.....I put in 3.4 miles on the course.

[B][I]1 minute DUs, stretching and 400m jog[/I][/B]


I went on a bike ride this morning. I wanted to ride the new expansion of the trails leading to the SA missions but it was closed...again. :ranting2:

I rode the alternate route I went previously and got a better workout because I got chased by a few dogs along the way. :rofl: I put in 8 miles in 37:56.

I did a nice chipper to shake things up. It was supposed to be squat day but my legs were sore from yesterday's trail run.

5 cleans 125#
35 crunches
15 KB press 50#
35 leg lifts
15 KB press
65 SU
15 rows 125#
1 minute plank

I'm participating in another month long abs challenge and was invited after it had already begun, so I incorporated the last three days into my WOD.

Re: Mike's Mad Log

Today turned out to be a good run day. It wasn't as cool as some of the previous days, but I'll take 76 degrees in Texas any day:thanx:

[B]Endurance[/B] :run:

[B][I]400m job and stretching[/I][/B]

I ran a decent 4 miles in 37 minutes. I tried not to pay attention to my pace but just to get mileage in. Of course, I started pacing myself after two miles and almost burned out by the end.....Speaking of which, I stubbed my toe on the home stretch. :ranting2: It hurt like a champ until I had a chance to get some ice on it. No swelling, and I can wiggle it; no sign of anyhting broken.

[B]Strength[/B] :weight_l:
6x4 185#

I went up 5#s from the prescribed weight cuz it was easier to just slap two 45s and two 25s on the bar...:p

10 push ups
10 Spiderman push ups
10 leg kick push ups
10 burpees

120 SU which I broke up between sets on the bench

[B]REST DAY[/B] :yawn:

I was feeling really lathargic, so I took today off. Hopefully, this will help recharge the batteries....

Re: Mike's Mad Log

I woke up early to get in some extra miles this morning.

[B]Endurance[/B] :run:

Ran a very good 5 miler in 48:00. I was very please as I hadn't run that distance in nearly 2 months. I set my goal to sub 50:00.

[B][I]Foam rolling, stretching and light calisthenics[/I][/B]

[B]Strength[/B] :weight_l:
6x2 280#

This was the end of week IV on the Russian program; been off a few days due to rest day and scheduling conflicts. It's had some rough patches but a good program. I did scale the weight some but no big deal....

I'm looking forward to next week!!:pepper:
