Oh My Quad

Where have I been? Recovering! It’s now been 4 days since the 32 round tabata thrusters and my quads are still sore to the touch. Turned out my back tweak was not just an innocent one. So, yeah, I haven’t really been motivated to workout, especially with walking being a challenge. On Monday I did do some yard work, because I had to before trash pickup on Tuesday. Yesterday was a busy day with work and my body just didn’t feel up for moving much. I was hoping (though not really) that I’d be able to do the IWT today, but it wouldn’t be smart to push my back. I have actually have a scheduled chiropractor appointment today so hopefully I’ll be feeling better tomorrow. Out in the garage around noon.


  • 1,000m Ski Erg
  • 1:00 AirDyne AD2


Seemed like I was getting a high HR alert the entire workout

30:00 AMRAP

  • 1:00 AirDyne AD2
  • 15 Push-ups
  • 250m Ski Erg
  • 40 Double Unders

Good thing I didn’t try to go the 40 minutes I was originally thinking. Much harder than I expected and was really losing it in the last third. Managed to get 8 rounds plus the minute of AD. Total of 220 calories and 3.01 miles on the AD.

I’ve hated the computer on the AD2 since day 1. The display cycles through 5 pieces of data every 6 seconds, so I can never use calories or distance in an AMRAP like this. A few days ago I got an idea for a winter project to try to read in the data and create my own user interface using a Raspberry Pi and tiny LCD screen. Some of the parts will be here today.
