Today begins a 2-week experiment. We are going back to the kind of training I was doing in December/January to see whether I get faster between yesterday's race and the Music City Triathlon in 2 weeks. I anticipate improvement, so I am excited to see what happens. The only thing is that Will is not here, so I'm just going to have to push myself as hard as I know he would were he here.

Morning workout:
  • 3 min iso push up on knees
  • Repeat the following as a loop 6 times:
    • 50 scap pull up
    • 25 towel front delt
    • 1 bench press, 75lb
    • 1 min iso preacher curl, 15-lb dumbbells
  • GHR, 30 sec on, 30 sec off, 6 times
  • Lunge R, 30 sec on, 30 sec off, 6 times
  • Lunge L, 30 sec on, 30 sec off, 6 times
Afternoon workout (which happened at lunch because I don't know when else I'll find time today and which was SIGNIFICANTLY harder physically than the morning's workout):
  • Bench press, 65 lb, 10 deep breaths then 1 rep@65lbs then rest (as if another person was going), repeat for 10 total reps (holding the bar the entire time)
  • Rebound curl, 15 lb (Will said approx. 25, but 15 was my option and 15 was plenty) bar, 10 reps, rest, repeat 10 times
  • Squat w/ bar (I did it with a stick—no way could I have done it with a weighted bar), 5 reps, rest 10 seconds, repeat 10 times
  • GHR to arm's length Standing ham, 10 reps, rest, repeat 10 times
The afternoon holds a much-needed visit to Dr. Berger, dinner at Carraba's with Nancy and her friend Sharon (we tried Chuy's but it was ridiculously busy!), and baking for Anna's tomorrow and JO's Wednesday.
