Didn’t go to the gym again because there was some cray-cray 2nd metcon with 108 thrusters at 3 different weights and no other movements. After a metcon with HSPU and pistols? Hell to the no! Worked out in the garage and did the extra credit cardio work instead.
Warm-up: 10:00 AMRAP (easy pace)
- 100 Jump Rope
- 20 Single Arm OH Walking Lunge (35# DB)
- 10 Push-ups
I used an old school jump rope today, which provided some weight. Only miss was at 62 in the 4th round. I did exactly 4 rounds.
- 10 HSPU
- 10 Pistols (alt)
My left quad has had that weird feeling off and on randomly, so I wasn’t sure what to expect out of pistols today. I haven’t done any lately. They felt really good doing the foot hold method. Never missed or had a pre-mature foot touch on any reps. Did the handstand push-ups in all sets of 5 with a walk across garage and back as rest before each sub set. I finished 6+14.
I might try to get a piece of plexiglass or something cheap for the wall where I do HSPU. The screws are right in the spot where my feet slide on the wall.
- 1,000m (@ 5k pace)
- 500m (recovery)
Decided to shoot for 1s/500m faster than the last time and also do the recovery pieces on the ski erg instead of 2:00 on the Airdyne. My 1k times were 3:58, 3:57.8, and 3:57.7; I was right on pace. My recoveries were 2:43.6, 2:44, and 2:41.7.
