Wisconsin was great. Got in a couple of really good spinning classes with my dad (still kicking butt at 67, I hope to get there in that shape), a good outdoor session with my sister that led her to do more of the same with my bro in law, some good hamstring suggestions for my mom and plenty of running about with the childrens. Yes, childrens.
It was interesting to work out in a more conventional gym again. At first it was frustrating trying to find an actual pull up bar, then a pull up bar to swing on, then a place to jump around. Eventually I worked it out, but those places are not built for what I want to do…although fun, functional and worth while, I want a rope, some rings, a bag to hit the crap out of, and a loud stereo with quality music.
Got in a lot of pulling, jumping, weighted dipping, some good full court five on five, two miles of sprint walk intervals with my dad, a nice walk with my mom, a nice vanity lift with T and some good conditioning alone.
This week has been one of more experimentation in the space. The Olympic rings have really inspired and I’ve spent a good deal of time/energy just randomly hanging from things, pulling up on things, jumping ang grabbing to a hang on the bar…more play, less work. Still doing lifts, but more concentrated sets throughout the day in short bursts.
Yesterday did quarter miles at our lovely Lil Haiti road track.
75-69-65-65 on three minutes.
Today did field sprints at the park, maybe 125 yards. Ten of them , broken into two groups of five throughout a great park bodyweight workout.
The first four of each set were ramping up, with the second half starting with an explosion and staying at top speed to the finish.
Good days of heavy rain down here. Time to buy some chalk.
