14.3 Lift Jump Repeat

“The more I want to get something done, the less I call it work.”
 Richard Bach

Fresh air, Sunshine and Dead-lifts!

That is what I call a good way to enjoy the day. Couldn't get to the workout until mid afternoon but it was well worth it. Set up outside, bit of a breeze, timer & counter, 3, 2, 1 ... GO!

I really enjoyed this workout. There was so much information and so quickly about this workout on how to strategize. Pre workout warm up, mobility & post work effort was a relief to have an honestly ... made a significant difference for me. As for the workout itself, a bit of pre planning really made it go smoothly, set up weights in an order, know when to break, when to transition, box placement. Time spent on the heavy weight was well worth each rep, setting up and breathing. Last set of jumps @6:03. I was not in a hurry, it was an early quick pace, unbroken first round, second round broken into 3rds (3x5), third into 5ths (5x4) and last singles. Could I have eeked out a few more reps, I think so ... after hearing how many were doing the night before I opted for a conscious breath in between the last 5 reps. I am very pleased. It is the next day and I feel it but no rehab required. A little AirDyne flush and some recovery swings. More sunshine and a movie with my sweetie girl.

Good show HQ. I am one and done on this but will plan to do it again sometime after the Open before swim season :)! Honestly, each of the workouts so far have been enjoyable. Tough but ... I know the MUs are coming and I am not prepared, my own fault, I am there, I am there, but I am not quite there. It is something that makes the difference between work (wall ball, thrusters) and exhilaration (double unders, pull ups).

Happy girl & still enjoying the ride ~
