Journey to the Race: Day 35

If you can dream it, you can do it.
-Walt Disney

Woo today was a good workout day. We did jogs around a park for a warm up, sprinting up the hills and doing 20 walking lunges when on flat ground. Then we went to a steep hill and with a partner, took turns sprinting up the hill 8 times. We then went back to the park and did this circuit twice.
  • 3-4 pull ups
  • 10 pushup swingouts (not sure what it's called but you get into a pushup position with your hands on a playground swing, then swing your arms out then back to the pushup position)
  • piggy back someone of approximately the same weight for...I have no idea but I'd guess 20-40m (vague I know, but I have no idea of the actual distance)
  • pull a weighted sled the same distance

We finished the session with 2 runs up yet another hill, which is not as steep but is a long and slow climb. The first run up was a nice jog pace, and the second one was an all out sprint to the top.

The sled drag was by far the worst part, it was heavy and slow going. The sprints and runs weren't nearly as bad as I thought they would be although I did get a cramp in my side again. And I'm pretty sure my sister bruised my hips from gripping on so tight during the piggy back ride, but she kind of had to so she wouldn't slide off.

Overall a great workout, and now I get to spend the rest of the day studying for finals. Wish me luck!
