5 Sets: :30 AD sprint
Stretchin’ | 20:00
Started the day with some stair sprints at the Predock (Nelson Fine Arts Museum on campus). Man I love that building. Only did like 6 sets up and down. Nothing crazy. Mostly just fun. Bo enjoyed it too.
I ended up doing 6 sets of RDLs… because I did 3 rounds with the weight in the wrong hand. Whoopsies! Thankfully Ali had her eye on me and corrected my ways. Once I had the right set-up I felt it a lot more in ma’ glutes and it took a lot of focus to make sure I kept my hips and shoulders positioned properly whilst maintaining balance. Good stuff.
AD SPRINTS ARE INSANE. Easy on paper; ridiculous in action. I really felt like I might vom. And seriously, unless the whisky is involved, that never happens. Each round I felt more winded after the sprint and took longer to recover. After round 5 I think it took a full 2:00 to stop breathing hard.
In terms of my injuries, everything is feeling really great. I am pretty excited. Now just not to go crazy and fuck shit up again. Must remind myself of the goal here: move well and get/stay healthy.
