“Primrose Hill.” PUC Day 15 & 16. Biking in London.

Warm Up

A light bike ride to the gym, and then, having dropped off my stuff, from the gym to the bottom of Primrose Hill, which is the north end of Regent’s Park in London. I made my way to an exercise area called “Trim Trail,” which is a place with permanent installations for pull-ups and many other body weight only exercises. Very nice adult playgym equipment. Personal trainers bring clients there.

Once there I did some sit ups (15), push ups (15), and squats (15), and did hamstring, calf, and hip mobility stretches.

Primrose Hill: The WOD

My WOD:
11 Dead Hang Pull Ups. Take as long as you need.
Sprint up Primrose Hill.
10 Dead Hang Pull-Ups
Sprint up Primrose Hill
10 Dead Hang Pull-Ups
Sprint up Primrose Hill

My results: I got my dead hangs, including one SET OF 5, two sets of 4, two of three, and a couple twos, and a bunch of ones. They took a long time, relative to my normal workouts. Sprint times: 1:50, 1:58, 1:58.

For the record, the Sprint was about 500 meters and includes an approximately 100 foot elevation. It’s burly.

When I finished the whole workout I did another set of 15 pushups for good measure.

Pull-Up Challenge Days 15 and 16

I missed yesterday’s pull-ups, so today I did two days worth. And I combined them with the workout.

See: 15 + 16 = 31.

Biking in London

Heck, I rode my bike for about 3 hours straight today in London, from 4:00 to 7:00 pm, and I also rode it prior to this time. I probably covered 20 miles. Obviously, I was stopping and starting a lot. It was totally awesome. What a great way to sightsee.
