Treadmill 1, Me 0
I had an epic interval workout planned for the treadmill this morning.
Through a series of technical difficulties and, most certainly, user error I was unable to know what I actually ended up accomplishing today. So, I will list below the intervals that I intended to do today even though it was an epic failure.
Here is what I had hoped to do today:
0-5 walk – incline at 3.0
5-10 run at 6.0
10-14 walk – incline at 4.0
14-18 run at 6.2
18-21 walk – incline at 5.0
21-24 run at 6.4
24-26 walk – incline at 6.0
26-28 run at 6.6
28-29 walk – incline at 7.0
29-30 run at 6.8
Repeat all that 2 times.
After the travesty that was my treadmill workout I completed 5 kipping pulls ups and then moved onto this circuit workout.
AMRAP in 20 minutes of the following:
Squat and Press 15
3,3,3,3 Push Ups*
Standing Wood Chop 10 each side
Single Leg V Ups 20
Kettle Bell Swings 15
Jump Rope Double Unders 10
*3 pushups with hands together, 3 military, 3 wide and 3 pike pushups.
I used a 30 pound barbell for the Squat and Press and 16 pound medicine ball for the Standing Wood Chop and the Kettle Bell Swings.
I have an ongoing issue with a disc in my lower back. It decided to make an unexpected appearance today so I am back on the ice regimen. I believe the twisting action during the Wood Chop is what caused today’s issue.
So, depending on how it is feeling come morning I will either do a 6 mile run tomorrow or I will go for a really long bike ride.
Fingers crossed it ain’t no thang and I will be good as new tomorrow.
