Level 3 - Week 2

Second week on level 3. Everything felt solid and on pace. Careful form all the way through. L3D1 - 19 rounds. Alternating pull ups and chin ups. Last round of pull-ups was 1-1 instead of doing 2. Again sandwiched between 3 mile runs. L3D2 - 5:24. Did this in the middle of a very hot and humid 10 mi...

Level 3 - Week 1

Despite the long weekend, I couldn't get my L3D3 workout in. Pathetic! But here is the rest of the week: L3D1 - 15 rounds. Sandwiched between 3 mile runs. Didn't push too hard for the first day back on L3, but still running out of steam on the pull-ups toward the end. L3D2 - 5:48. This seemed pretty...

Level 2 - Week 1

First week at level 2. L2D1 - 19 rounds. Alternating chin-ups and pull-ups. This was pretty relaxed (hot and humid day). Started with 3 mile run at 7:50 pace. L2D2 - 4:20. No problem. Added an extra pull-up and some extra push-ups to the last 2 rounds. 3 minute breaks. Did this in the middle of a 10...

I'm back.

So, I took a couple years off from Simplefit. I prepared for and ran the Boston Marathon (great experience!) and then had a couple of book projects and a move. I've been on the road or living without a pull-up bar for the past 7 months. Now it is time to get back at it. Alas, some significant ground...

Re: Satty's Log

Very nice job. You'll pick up those last 2 seconds pretty quickly. So, I'm guessing L6 will be the real wall.

Glad you're back! That 7:40 for L7D3 is terrific!

Re: Level 5 - Week 15

Still struggling. L5D1 - 22 rounds. Felt OK all the way through, just not very fast. L5D2 - 5:28. Same comments L5D3 - 11:50. Did the pull-ups in 8-7-6-5, 90 seconds per round. That still feels a the limit by the last one. Push-ups still stuck at 19-17-8-7. The time is OK at 90 seconds for the first...

Re: FLHTCI57's Log

Nice job. Mixing levels a bit is an interesting strategy. That's particularly tough on the 6-7 mix with the move from 3 to 4 pull-ups. I don't know if it is causal, but that is a nice jump on L6D3

Re: Level 5 - Week 14

L5D1 - 24 rounds. It was a little cooler and I'm getting a little stronger. The pull-ups are still fading a bit at the end. First 16 rounds under 50 seconds, then stayed under 1 min until the last 2. L5D2 - 5:04. Still strict 3 minute rests. Getting close to 5 min, at which point I'll go to 2:30 for...

Re: Level 5 - Week 13

Oathblivion - I have leveled up very slowly. This is mostly, I'm sure, because I'm older and this is a relatively new thing for me. I've been a runner all my life, with pretty pathetic upper-body skills. So, I'm building from scratch at an age where muscle goes away any time you sit down for a few m...

Re: Oathblivion's Log

Great start! Welcome to simplefit. I think you are right about the essential character of it. It requires limited focused time and keeps you motivated to push for the time goals. Good luck!
