Day 2-M

150 pushups w/ a twist- you can rest in the plank position, but if the midline breaks- up or down- you have to run 400m before resuming.

10:11 - runs after reps 75 and 115

3 hours later

5k road run

26:08

For some reason, I haven't been able to get my 5k under 25 min for several months. I think the hot and humid Maryland summer has something to do with it (I'm a cold weather guy), but I also feel like I'm still not running as fast as I could be. I've got a long trail run coming on Wednesday; we'll see how that goes.

I like the push-up with a twist workout! I'm going to steal that one from you!! :)

Your 5k time will improve dramatically once it cools down... It's amazing how much this heat affects me!

Good job!

Day 4- G

3 x WU:

10 elbow to instep lunges
10 pvc dislocates
10 hip extensions
10 GHD situps

"Chelsea+5"

10 pullups
15 pushups
20 squats
every minute on the minute for 30 min, or until the round cannot be completed in the aloted time.

7 rounds+10 pullups+15 pushups+19 squats

I've been dissapointed with a lot of my times lately, but this one is far and away the biggest let down. I completed an immaculate Chelsea+4 back in April, finishing every round in almost exactly 40 seconds, and had been looking forward to this one for a long time. I could make a lot of excuses for this one (subpar nutrition on my rest day, the 90+ degree heat today), but what it boils down to is not being able to maintian the necessary intensity level. I didn't fail to complete the last round because I was too tired; I just wasn't going fast enough. I'll be going to the pool shortly, to put in some laps. I might do "Tabata Something Else" later today, just to make up for the volume I didn't get on this workout. I'm officially declaring the Gymnastic/Endurance Black Box a failed experiment. Hopefully the revised version will be more successful, and get me back up to speed.

"Tabata Something Else"

pullups
15-12-10-10-7-7-6-6
pushups
15-15-15-15-15-13-12-11
situps
14-14-14-14-17-14-14-15
squats
22-23-23-23-20-20-20-24

Total=475 (PR)

I think I came out of the gate a little too fast on the pullups. I maybe could have gotten a few more if I'd gamed for 10 or 12 reps. Honestly, I shouldn't be upset, since this beats my old PR by more than 30 reps.

Day 5- M

Long Trail Run

45:11

Wish I could say how long this was, but not sure. It's probably around 5 miles. Should have been a few minutes shorter, but I turned the wrong way on my last trail connection.

Re: I've got a Monster in my Pocket!!!
 
Day 5-W

5 rep press

95-115-135-155-165(4)-155-160(3)

3 x 5 rep dunmbell bench

110-110-110

1 x ME BW bench

16 @ 175#

Not the best I've ever done on the press, but I haven't worked it in a while. Plus, it was 1am, so I'll take it. 16 reps is around what I get in my late rounds for "Lynne", so that's about right for the end of the workout.

10 GHD situps
10 ring dips

"Helen"

3 rounds
400m run
21 kettlebell swings, 1.5 pood
12 pullups

9:50

10 seconds slower than my PR. Not surprised, coming off the long run yesterday.

Once again, I got did in by my watch. I finished the first round, looked down, and it had stopped at 10 seconds. I had to cool off for 10 minutes and start over again.
