Two low calorie days in a row. Decent sleep last night (over 7 hours). 3 block breakfast. Health in general is good.
5k Run, “The Dog Slide.”
Today my own WOD is: 5k for time.
My route is “The Dog Slide”, which is a run I like to do in North Asheville.
Prior to the run I did the following warm up: one dead hang pull-up; 7 minutes of 40 second on, 20 seconds off jump-rope; then one round of: pushups, situps, 1.25″ band assist pull-ups, air squats (12 reps each); then hip mobility stretch, calves stretch.
I completed this run starting just after 2:00 pm. Time: 25:09. Average HR: 172; max: 185.
This time is an 8 second improvement over my last 5k time, in the “Mineral City 5k”, which I ran 10 days ago on April 25th.
I am totally pumped about that!
