24 kg Speed Swings 17 min,walking lunges, parallel bar pushups , side delts, curls
Very interesting workout. Was feeling generally fine but still recovering from the five minute test on Saturday and the heavy presses on Monday. But I felt strong. Just a bit tired.
Kind of knew it would be tough but not worried about it at all for some reason
And there was no need to be as it was perhaps the easiest 17 minutes ever. Not the most powerful, but the easiest. I had a lower gear I could use for the first time and it was solid. Like running 8:15 minute miles instead of your normal 8:00. It was slower but steady and I went the distance strongly.
Didn't look up until 10 minutes in and it was no worries.
Did some double breathing but found I really didn't need it and it made things harder so I stopped til the last 5 minutes or so, when I actually needed it.
When I was training to race bikes there was a point where everything up to 100 miles in a ride was very tough. Then, after we did 120 mile ride over to Pescadero and back I crossed that mythical 100 mile mark and everything changed. Nothing up to 100 miles was that tough ever again. My mind had shifted and so went my body. Of course it was hard but something was different
Today felt like that for the swings. Something shifted and we got to another level
