  • Tuesday, April 29, 2008

    D1L4:


  • 25 rounds
    (+6 cf. previous D1L4) (-1 cf. previous D1L3)

    I tried to do a round every 40 seconds. I managed that pace for 20 rounds or so. After that, I did a round when I could. I used the interval timer on my watch to count out the 40 seconds.

    I will try a round every 43 seconds next time. That should get be 27.9 (!) rounds.

  • Monday, May 5, 2008

    D1L4:


  • 29 rounds
    (+4 cf. previous D1L4)

    I did a round every 43 seconds, somehow thinking that this would result in 29 rounds.

    At around the 25th round, I realized I was going to fall short, so I started going faster than my planned interval.

    I finished the squats a few seconds after the final beep of my stopwatch.

    I’d like to track this too. I called my Dr., but she doesn’t do body fat measurements. I guess I’ll have to buy some calipers and do it myself.

    I think I will take some more pictures this week. They’re a fun indicator of progress.

    Again, really hard. And I only matched last week’s tally.

    Again, really hard! I am doing a cleanse this week (3 day fast with master cleanser), so I should probably not be working out at all, but I don’t want to fall off the SimpleFit wagon. Since I wasn’t feeling very energetic, I took the squats pretty slow, only to find this made them much MUCH harder!

    Oooh, made good progress on my time, but man did I feel heavy on the chin-ups. No, my arms didn’t feel weak, I felt heaver. Strange.

    Week 10 (Easy)

  • Easy week already? Sometimes it seems like I’ve only been doing this for a few weeks. Other times it seems like I have been at it for ages and I wonder where my progress is.

    3 weeks with the same number of rounds. Bummer.

    My wife however, scored a PR of 31 on D1L1, beating last week by 6 sets!

    D2 used to be the easy day. It is still easier than the others, but it ain’t easy! The squats are pretty tough.

    Also: 3 L-Pullups!

    Squats: 51 (29, 22)

    Ugh. Frustrating that my time is identical (well, 1 second worse) than the last D3 at this level. I have not done D3 the last 2 weeks. I thought I might be well rested. Also, my time on the pull-ups was faster than previously, but that speed exhausted me and my push-ups were slow.

    Amazing how that one little change increases the difficulty to the nth degree. Good Job.

    urgh!

    I set my interval timer for 52 seconds, a pace that would give me 23 sets.

    I then ignored the timer and went as fast as I could, until I started to lag, then I tried to follow the interval timer.

    This strategy should have resulted in more than 23 sets, but it didn’t.

    BUT, I did beat my D1 score which has been holding steady at 21 for three weeks.

    I hate to say it, but tonight workout was tough too.

    I look forward to really mastering these more difficult workouts.

    Squats: 51 (31, 10, 10)

    I seem to be recovering from all my ill health of the past few weeks, and making decent progress again.

    I lopped a minute-and-a-half off my previous D3L5.
