Back to back pain sessions

I worked late last night which is turning into a recurring theme. We are fortunate to have the work after a slow summer so I am not complaining, but it does screw up the workout calendar. I seriously considered skipping the workouts, but thought about how that would make me feel - did the workouts.

First one: Row 500m, 50 20# kb swings, Row 500m, 40 20# kb swings, Row 500m, 30 20# kb swings, row 5oom. I was pretty sore from Cindy the day before so getting going was a little painful, but I managed to beat my prior time by 30 seconds. Finished in 13:57.

Second one: Like I said it was late - had to do my running speed workout on the treadmill. I much prefer the track. Times are hard to keep track of on the treadmill so I keep track of the speed. Workout was run 200m, 400m, 800m, 400m, 200m 100% effort. Rest equals prior work period. Speed was 10, 9, 8 (bumped up to 8.2 in last 200m), 9.1, 10.1.

First workout today - five sets of 3 rep deadlifts. 200, 220, 230, 230, 240

I need a new training watch/hr monitor. I'm thinking about getting a Garmin. There are so many choices. Any suggestions?


  1. I have a Garmin 310XT. Love it. You can set it up for interval workouts so its great for those crazy bike tabatas! :)

    I also have loved my timex ironman for the pool and my Suunto for the pool and races.

  2. Let me know what you are thinking as I am thinking of a new watch too.
