Every time I go away on business, I have the intention of working out. This time, I think I was able to do it. I was able to get one WOD in last Tuesday (2/23/2010). I made this one to do in my hotel room:
10 rounds of
- 10 push ups
- 10 sit ups
- 10 squats
- 50 jump ropes
It took me right around 14 minutes to do this one. I didn’t have a stopwatch going. I just looked at the clock when I started and when I ended. I would have done double-unders, but I was on the 2nd floor and didn’t want to start heel smashing.
About 3 days later, my car was buried under 2-4 feet of snow depending on the side of the vehicle. I totally consider this a WOD. I worked like an animal for over an hour to get it completely dug out. Next time I am in a blizzard, I will see if I can improve on my time =)
It seems like every time I take a break from the gym, the workout that is planned for when I come back is really hard. In fact, I sometimes think that the coaches sit around and say “Bryan’s coming back today, what’s really hard for him?”.
No, I don’t REALLY think that, but it sure does feel like it. In fact, I don’t think it would matter what work out was picked for my first one back. It will pretty much always suck.
Last night’s WOD was deceptively hard:
7 rounds of
- 10 db cleans (Rx 40lb in each hand)
- 10 burpees
- There it is again. Just 2 things. 70 times. Argh. This took me longer than I would have liked. I clocked in at 15:56 after lots of breaks. Better luck next time kid…
