Not my best workout(s)

Did the thruster dip combination first - 21 thusters, 21 dips, 15 thusters, 15 dips, 9 thrusters, 9 dips. Started with the prescribed 95 pounds for the thrusters but after five reps it was quite clear that this was simply too much weight for me. Changed it to 85 and still had to break up the sets. This workout took me a while to complete - 16:33 to be exact.

Tabata bike was next. did this on the stationary in the gym as I knew the drive home would steal whatever motivation I had left away from me. This workout was way harder than I expected. I'm not sure of the exact distance I covered as the stationary bike computer turns off when you stop pedalling. Only made that mistake once, pedalled real light after each minute just to keep the computer running. Esimate of distance covered is 8 miles. I was absolutely soaked after this workout. I closed the gym again (but got my whole workout in this time), so I did not get to shower until I got home. I built in enough time for the shower, but the first workout took me longer than I expected.

I'm curious to see what happens when I get my rest back in line. Diet has been very good for the last two days. Food prep all done for today, so today should be fine too.
