Re: Mike's Mad Log

I'm taking part in a burpee challenge this month. A family friend will be posting the daily challenge, and all participants knock out whatever she has in store....I love surprises and burpees!!!:rofl:

Today's was to do 20 burpees, so I incorporated them into my workout.

5 Burpees
10 KBS 30#
10 KBS 50#
5 KBS 70#

I wanted to do a long ride but time wasn't on my side because I neglected the lawn too long. My wife said it better be done when she got home....:whip0000:

Next best thing was to go for speed. I decided to go 6 miles and clocked it in 27:39.

[B]Stretching and 400m run[/B]

[B]Endurance[/B] :run:

It feels as though I haven't run in weeks.....My plan was to just get in a short one this morning.

I ran 2 miles in 15:29. The first mile was a surprise as I clocked a 7:11; it didn't feel as though I was running that fast. I backed off a minute per mile on the return, and got a respectable finish. I was focusing on my form. Been reading a lot about cadence and stride, and how to become more efficient.

[B][I]10x135# *** to grass squats[/I][/B]

I've been looking for a new strength program and decided to give the Russian squat program. I found this on the web: [url][/url] (WSF)

6x2 280

I actually plugged in 350 as my 1RM since I haven't been hitting it like I was late last year, and have had back issues.....It was still very challenging, and I hope to get back to my PR by the end of the cycle.

3 rds, 10 ea
Russian twists 50#, V ups, reverse crunches and K2E

Burpee Challenge Day 3~30 burpees in 1:45

[B][I]Stretching and 400m run[/I][/B]

[B]Endurance [/B] :run:


I went to a local park that I have meant to check out. I pass by it frequently but never ran the course. Not knowing the distance, I set out to do three laps, and see how it was.

The run turned out to be 2.5 miles which I completed in 20:59. It was an unimproved track but that offered a good challenge.
