Begin Again

Posted in Concept II,Gym Strength by Mike on September 9, 2007

Well, that little bit of excitement out of the way, back to work.

Concept II vent closed
10,000 meters
Time 42:53
Avg HR 165
Max HR 184
I spent the vast majority of my time in the low 160’s, it wasn’t until the last third that it really started to climb. I wanted to quite at 7,000 meters. In fact, I stopped rowing for half a second, took a couple breathes and got back to work.

In homage to Scott Styles I checked out a towel and wiped up my spot. The more I thought about it, the more of a sham it is. I didn’t take any sweat up with the towel and any bug-a-boos would have already taken up residence in the neoprene of the handle. The germicides they use are a joke and are misapplied anyway. 
Anyway, I’m babbling…

Into the gym:
Hang power clean to a strict press 135lbs 5 X 5
I hated doing these, I was still exhausted from the rowing.  gotta do some more pressing though.

Barbell curls superseted with standing French Press 75lbs 3 X 10

Towel pull ups 1
towel hangs, not much but all I could do.

    You’re probably right about the germicides. At least the bugs in my garage I can see. The spiders and I have an understanding. I don’t smash them, they eat the other pests.

    I like those kinds of arrangements. We have toads and bats around here for that, although I wouldn’t want the bats living in my garage gym, that could end poorly for at least one of us.
