catch up

Posted in Uncategorized by Mike on June 6, 2009

A busy close to the week. I got a homework assignment on Tuesday that was due Thursday, it took about 5 hours to complete – let’s do the math

48 hours
5 hours for homework
5 hours of class
16 hours of work
12 hours of sleep
3 hours of commuting
3 hours of eating
3 hours of working out (changing clothes before and after and showering included)
total of other activities: 47 hours
leaving 1 hour to spend with my wife, dog and doing other things like bathing, getting dressed, and so on.

so I kept my workouts short

Concept II – Hooray, I was wrong about the batteries being dead
5,000 meters
time 24minutes
strokes per minute came out to just about21 on average based on what I saw on the display
pace came to about 2:25 per 500 meters, I was going for keeping it under 2:30.

I called it a workout at this point, I wanted to get to the shower and go work on homework. Additionally, I love the Concept II but experience dictates that going crazy on it the first few times out will leave you in a bad way. You must respect the Concept II and slide into the workout (no pun intended) butif you do that, you will get a great reward.

24K kettlebells
Jerk (two bells) X 10
Snatch (Left then Right) X 10
5 set
With warmup  this ran right about 35 minutes. I think I find the 24K bells easier than the 16s, they fall into the rack better. The 50 reps wasn’t too bad, I’d do it again. I’d like to play with increasing the reps per set over time.
