My legs are definitely sore today from the last two days of heavy lifting with back squats and deadlifts. My lower and middle back are ever a little sore. I worked on my right butt with the tennis back a couple of times yesterday and it seems to feel a little worse today, but maybe that means it’s improving. I can hope.

I had a golf lesson at 11 so couldn’t make it to the 9am class like I usually do. I checked out the workout and it included pull-ups and toes to bars (T2B) so I decided not to go to a night class. My hands are healing at a good pace and I don’t want to rip them wide open again so soon.

I decided to do a round of Tabata sprints since the last time I did them was December 8th in San Francisco. When I run these, I structure them like the following:

  • 5:00 Slow Warm-up
  • 8 rounds
    • 20s Sprint
    • 20s Slow
  • 5:00+ Slow Cool down (however much longer it takes to get back to my destination)

I ran for a total time of 14:35 over 1.76 miles. According to the RunKeeper logs I covered nearly 0.1 miles more than previous runs of this workout during the interval portion, which is about 15% improvement. I could really tell the difference in my conditioning during the second half of the sprints. Usually I’d be dying, but I was able to stick pick up to a pretty decent pace.

After the run I practiced DUs for 5-10 minutes and was consistently getting streaks of 5-10. Finally some progress! It’s been awhile since I did a max push-up test, so I did that after in my apartment after some rest and knocked out 36.

Back to the box in the morning for a class.

I'm searching for the perfect golf swing and my first hole-in-one. I'm addicted to CrossFit. I work for Automattic.
