Wednesday, October 22, 2014 Change in schedule today! Picked up the kids from school. They were hungry so we grab something to eat. I forgot to order something and played cleanup on whatever they didn’t eat. Then time for homework and building a couple cars for them to sit in at their Awanas Class tonight. They were having a drive-in theater where they sit in their box cars and watch a movie. We had fun making them!
Got in some time on the Falco V just as the sun was going down. That felt nice. Got a little dark at the end 🙂 Finished up in time to get asked out for Sushi. I Love Sushi! I didn’t eat enough at dinner though. Should have gone for some sashimi. Oh well, peanut butter and almond protein works too!
Tuesday, October 21, 2014 Picked up the kids early from school today and tackled the homework! Got it done eventually. Went to dinner with the family. Waited till later in the evening to get my workout in so food could digest a bit. Definitely need to wait a few hours after eating to tackle a workout like Plyocide.
Today’s workout was a distance runner’s nightmare (well at least this distance runner) – Asylum Vol. 1 – Vertical Plyo. Plyo is short for Plyometrics, which is short for jump, jump, sweat, jump, sweat, jump, sweat, jump, oh and jump some more after you do these push-ups in a pool of sweat. The only good thing about this workout, is it is only about 40 minutes including the warm-up, stretching, and post workout stretching. That is actually not true (the only good thing is” part), this workout is actually quite perfect because it helps to improve an athlete’s ability to drive and get those knees up. Extremely useful in my sport for hill climbing in both the bike and the run.
Tomorrow is a scheduled rest day. Maybe I’ll get a swim in? OR if I am lucky, maybe a ride? I have not ridden my bike since a couple days after the Bakersfield Triathlon. I am going to have to remedy that soon. For sure next week!
Finished Week 5 yesterday with X2 Base + Back on what should have been a X2 Recovery + Mobility day. I should have actually completed this workout on Saturday but I didn’t get to it. It was pretty tough and the first time I had done this workout. It consisted of pull-ups broken up by plyometrics. This definitely kept my heart rate up. Upon completing this workout I hopped on my bike and went for a 25 mile ride. It felt so good to be back on a bike again!
So Week 6 starts today. I’ll talk more about that tomorrow!
