Three days of working out…

…makes Bryan a very tired guy.

Last night’s workout was really hard for me. It showed in my 400 runs. In my posting about progress with running, I thought I was starting to get these under my belt, but I feel somewhat set back. The workout was:

21 – 15 – 9

  • Ring dips
  • Box Jumps (20″ box)
  • Kettle bell swings
  • 400m run

My time for this was 16:06, which I wasn’t terribly happy with. I was able to do about 10 unassisted ring dips before I had to switch to using a red band (thanks for grabbing it, Nikki). My runs, as I stated above, sucked. The first one was OK, but then they got worse. By the third one, I had to take walk breaks and run really slowly because I got really bad cramps in my right side and shoulder.

On the positive side, I did all of the jumps and didn’t have to do any step ups. 

Following this madness, we did what I referred to as “five minute abs”:

  • 1 minute straight crunch
  • 1 minute left side crunch
  • 1 minute right side crunch
  • 1 minute reverse crunch
  • 1 minute straight crunch

I was able to bust out 256 total reps. Burn!

We did a good job of getting to bed early last night, but it was one of those nights where you just kind of toss and turn, then roll around for a bit. We were both tired, but neither of us could fall asleep.

Right as we were *finally* falling asleep, Bella and OC got into a really bad cat fight. They both drew a little blood which was a little frightening. If anyone knows how to deal with this, I’d love to hear your suggestions.

Since I really didn’t sleep well last night, I didn’t do so well this morning. I was wide awake at 4am so, getting out of bed wasn’t really a problem. When class started, I was pretty much done after the warm up. Argh.

The workout for this morning’s class was:

5 rounds for time

  • 30 squats
  • 20 SDHP (Sumo Deadlift High Pull)
  • 10 burpees

My time on this was 15:35. I was pretty much in agony from round one on. The follow up for this was a nice Tabata set of sit ups. I realized on the fourth round that I wasn’t counting my reps. Doh! Oh well, maybe next time.

At any rate, my body is TIRED, so, no working out over the weekend! Tomorrow’s cheat day too, yay!
