We had to run for warmup. I’ve been dreading this. We haven’t run all winter because it has been so cold and icy. I had done some running in the last few weeks but for some reason the thought of running warmups was really stressing me out. I usually start out first and end up last. I’m slow. This time I started off first and was going my normal pace and no one was passing me. We got to the 200 m point and I was still ahead. I was getting confused. Eventually some of the guys passed me but I was mid-pack at the end. Weird. I think they were all just being lazy. I could breathe ok so I guess it isn’t really spring yet when the pollen makes me wheezy on sprints.
We did 5 sets of 5 front squats. I did 85 lbs.
Then we did bench press. I was at around 60 lbs.
The workout was as many rounds as possible in 10 minutes of:
- 4 pistols on each leg- These are one legged squats. I can’t do them. Most people can’t so we started in a lunge and had to stand up without using the back foot.
- 8 kettle bell swings – I did 35 lbs.
- 12 wall balls
I did 4 rounds with an injury time out. Seriously, I am a danger to myself. The wall balls consist of taking a 14 lb medicine ball, squatting, and then standing up and throwing it up to a mark 9 feet up on the wall. The next part of the move is catching it on the way down. That’s where I had a bit of a failure. The ball smacked me in the face and bent up my glasses. The nose pad snapped off when I tried to fix it. I was all crooked for the rest of the day.
