Just the commute.
45 min or so each way, pretty easy pace despite Pete leaping off at the lights on his mini sprints.

Haven’t done this one since back at the LP gym. There the 32 kg barbell was the second heaviest pre-loaded bar. Here it’s just the bar and the wee plates. My box is a lot higher than the LP gym benches, so no weight on the step-ups, which are usually done with the bar on the shoulders and, occasionally, with dumbbells in hand.
Swings @ 24kg KB
Power clean and jerk (alternating push, split left, split right)
Claire came out side to “play gym” with me. While I was on the bar and bell, she used the box to reach and swing from the rings. Or jumped on the tramp. Or did presses with the 1kg pink dumbell. Or played with the tennis rackets. Or rode the walkbike. Or renamed me Jimmy, and herself Alice. Or reimagined the shed as our new house in the country. Or cast us as best-friend-cousins who are camping in the back yard. And so on.
Also, new dancin’ shoes:
ANZAC Day trainer session with Neil
It’s been wet this week. Really wet. Just after I committed myself to getting up hella early and flogging myself at the back of the NRR bunch in the rain, I called Neil to discuss logistics and, after a spontaneous rethink, we settled on an ergo session and breakfast. It rained buckets in the time we would have been on the road, which was satisfying, the extra sleep didn’t go astray and breakfast was one of the best I’ve had in this fair city.
Here’s the session:
15 min E1
2 x 10 sec sprints, 2:00 recovery (minus the efforts)
2 x 10 sec max cadence, 2:00 recovery (minus the efforts)
5 x 1:00 ITT, 1:00 rolling recovery
5:00 rolling recovery
10:00 E3, change up every :30 sec of the last 2:30.
10:00 rolling recovery
After the second last ITT effort I accepted that the spews were going to catch me. It was just a question of whether I risked rolling an ankle on my way to the garden or if I stayed on the bike and just tried not to get any on myself or in the house. It wound up not happening somehow, but it was close.
