Yesterday I finally felt like myself after more than 2 weeks of being off track (no pun intended) with a stomach bug. The morning workout was 800m/1000m repeats with 2min rest between each; 8@2:26 1k@3:02 8@2:26 1k@3:00 8@2:26 1k@2:57 followed by 5 min rest then 5x200m @ 28 with 1:30 rest in between.
It went like this 800m @ 2:24, 1000m @ 3:01, 800m @ 2:25, 1000m @ 2:59, 800m @ 2:26, 1000m @ 2:56. The 200′s were at 28. It was an honest effort on the track. Funny how it always looks OK on paper!
That afternoon I took a trip down to CrossFit Palo Alto to visit Tim Dymmel and practice Max Effort power cleans. I met Tim at the CrossFit Endurance Swim Certification last weekend. He’s a great guy and a very knowledgeable strength coach. I’m looking forward to working more with him and bringing back some of his methods and practices to the gym.
Evening sessions consisted of the CrossFit Endurance WOD:
8 min AMRAP:
6 clean and jerks @ 135
I’m also feeling much better now that I’m focusing on getting 5,000 calories every day.
Tuesday is a recovery day while Wednesday is a 20min pace run @ 5:20/mile.
Never Let It Rest
