A little better this week.
L5D1 - 23 rounds - 2 off my PR and again 1 worst than last week. Fading on the pull-ups/chin-ups at the end.
L5D2 - 5:17 -This was rock solid. All pull-ups, all careful about form.
L5D3 - 6:44 - A nice improvement. PR and first time under 7 minutes. Form was solid on chin/pull-ups (7-5-4-3-4-3), a little weaker on the last few push-ups (18-17-16).
OK. This was a bit of an experiment. Two weeks ago I had a pretty good cold, so that may be a factor. But, last week I really concentrated on simplefit. Other than a little running and Wed. night fencing, I didn't do anything else. I thought this would give me a real boost on the pull-ups and push-ups. In fact, although I continued with a little improvement on D2, D1 and D3 were noticeably worse. Then I took the whole weekend off (apart from a run on Sunday). Again, I did even worse on D1 -- down to 23 rounds.
This week, after that D1 performance, I put back in my extra work through the week. I did another 28 pull-ups on Monday. I added 120 push-ups throughout the day on Wednesday. I did some plank work and two hard runs. With that mixture, both D2 and D3 were quite a bit stronger -- a 14 second improvement on D2 and a 28 second improvement on D3. Of course it may just be the process of getting over the cold or the irreducible week to week vagaries. The real test will come with next Monday's return to D1.
