R4 D65 – The Return

64 OFF
65 WOD with Pullups

Well, I didn’t take 64 off and today and tomorrow will be reinstatement days…

As you have noticed by the date on the post that it has been 10 days since I posted. Thankfully not 10 days since I did anything but a handful due to severe illness. We spent 4 days in Las Vegas doing the typical Vegas things other than a day we spent out at Red Rock Canyon hiking where, finally, my Vibram Five Fingers KSO shoes finally came into their own. I will write more about our adventure this week but for now I wanted to place hold my return to working out after 5 days of severe stomach bug suffering. My return, I decided, should encompass everything in order to get it all moving again, in fact, I thought that 2 days of Tabata covering all the basic movements would do.

Day 1 looked like this:

Tabata Something Else:

20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds rest 8 times.
4 rounds with no rest featuring push ups, squats, clean and press and pull ups.

It ended up being 16 minutes of hell during which time I failed to complete any of the Tabatas. Being off (and being sick) totally sucks.

Tomorrow I thought I would do something similar using shoulder press, bicep curls, situps and chin ups but we shall see how sore I am.

It’s good to be back.
