going the distance?

warmed up on the trainer for at least 5 minutes then morning then hit the wod which was making me feel my legs after yesterdays deads.  9 minutes on (maybe didn't warm up enough legs still sore), 20 secs off (this felt like nothing, maybe brought my hr down a bit) 7 minutes on, 30 seconds off (again not feeling like much of a recovery), 5 minutes on,  40 seconds off, 3 minutes on, 50 seconds off, 1 minute on. Even had to push myself through the shorter times as my legs were tired. Felt like a good workout. Still didn't get the distance to work on my garmin. I contacted them about it. I will wait and see what they come back with before heading to the bike shop. It isn't a huge deal because on the trainer it isn't totally actually compared to gps. Again used the HR method to keep myself on task especially since the legs didn't have alot in them.

cf wod - 10 rounds of 1 minute on 1 minute off max rep pullups.  I hate this wod! I pretty much dislike any wod with a high number of pullups because I always know Im going to have torn up hands after it and true to form i have 2 tears on my left hand and 1 on my right. Probably because I kip the pullups. I feel like the hardest part of this wod was the pain in my hands instead of the pullups. These have been burning since this and will feel like crap in the pool tomorrow! I just wish I could get through a lot of pullups with all of my skin intact!

I wanted to do another biking wod today because I still feel really energetic but my legs are sore from yesterdays beating so I am letting them recover.  Today was a good day food wise in that I wasn't even feeling hungry. It's weird some day I can't wait to eat I am starving and then there and days like today.


  1. Nice job on the pullups, sorry the hands take a beating. Do you use chalk? I need to get some for deadlifts.

  2. I do use chalk. I actually chalked up for every round. It helps me grip but doesn't really protect my hands. I don't know what it is about my hands but seriously anytime there is a high number of pullups I can count on at least 1 torn hand.

  3. Nice to keep tracking your running, Mary! I see you still drink coconut water :)
