Spent time this weekend cleaning the basement and mowing the lawn. Also watched lots of sports. Monday will be tough for this sports junkie - no tennis, golf, soccer, or cycling (TDF rest day)...

Running 9:34 [4] 1.25 mi (7:39 / mi)
slept:7.0 weight:179lbs shoes: Saucony - Big Blue 1

Time is for the fast 400s x 5
400m jog, 400m fast x 3 was the prescribed workout, also jogged one at the end. Splits were 240 200 244 152 245 200 244

Then we did some squats, then 400m fast x 2. The times for these were 149 and 143. Everyone in my group beat me on the 1st, then I beat them all but one on the 2nd. I tore out front, way too fast, and then wondered when I was going to blow up. I kept thinking like I was leading the TDF and the peloton was going to swarm on me right before the finish...

Running 15:45 [2] 1.5 mi (10:30 / mi)
shoes: Saucony - Big Blue 1

Two warmup laps, then the laps between the 400s.
We didn't really do anything else today but warmup and cool down stretching for 12 minutes.

Neck was really painful last night. I even broke out the heating pad.
Poison ivy oozing nicely today.

Misc 1:00:00 [2]
slept:7.0 weight:179lbs shoes: Saucony 7 - Banana 2

Raining this morning, so we were under cover in the parking garage, though it had stopped by then. Toured the damage to the baseball field before class started. Four Mile Run was running over the foot bridges again.

Session was a good one - arm work with bands, abs, jj, running up the garage steps.

Neck is stiff again on left side.
Poison ivy on left forearm and left thigh is irritated by the sweating.

Misc 50:00 [3]
slept:7.0 weight:180lbs shoes: Saucony 7 - Banana 1

Felt fairly good for the second day in a row. Though I had to voice my opinion that the rotations on today's schedule was a bit assinine...
Started with Body Shapers (down, thrust legs out, 2 push ups, and up) x 10, 10, 15. In between was pushups x 10, 20, 30. Then the next rotation was pushups x 10, 10, 20, 20, 30, 30 (I think) and in between was a one arm hold in push up position.
Now, this was a ridiculous amount by itself, and then Chris announced that the next set was inclined pushups! Some grumbled quietly, and I protested loudly. Serioulsy, how could all those push ups be good for anyone?!
So, Chris improvised with a short run around the lot, then sets of flutter kicks, bicycle, scissor kicks, and crunches x 3 sets. Then Burpees and bench dips. Finished with more abs.
Very good session after resolving the pushup issues.


Was thinking that maybe I should only record actual moving time in Total Time for the Boot Camp sessions. We do about 10-15 minutes of each sessions on light stretching and transitions. Not that this will solve any potential over taining issues, but it will better reflect the harder activities and how the hours are adding up.
