Floor press was just fine and dandy. Jerks were about what you’d expect from a movement I haven’t ever given regular attention to. I tried to keep my form quick and tight, but it was lacking in the later sets (lumbar hinge fault).

After dinner I ran down to the park for “Thirteen”, which sounded like it would be easy enough with subs. The truth is that although my pull-ups were strong (chest to bar), my kip is wild, untamed and difficult to keep going efficiently. Really got to make sure I do more of these. Really need a bar in my backyard again. So I subbed CTB pull-ups and bar dips to sternum as best I could. I figured that the clapping pushups would be broken but decent. What I didn’t factor was how tough the bar dips would be on the shoulders and triceps, so I swallowed my pride and did regular push-ups … in broken sets. Still, it’s not a bad one. It “feels” gymnastic for sure – riiight in the top of the triceps, below and behind your shoulder. ;)

Run back, change shoes and set up the bike trainer.

Interval 1: 27-28km/h steady. Interval 2: 28-29km/h, buuuurn. Interval 3: … wait. Workout over? Crap. Reset the Garmin, check the workout. Edit. Save. Reset. Restart. Interval 3: 27-29 km/h struggle to get back into a rhythm with shot expctations. Interval 4: Stare at the computer. Find a quiet place inside. Get nice and comfy in the pain cave and work hard on stifeling any and all thought. The computer will tell us when it’s time to stop. 29+ all the way through. No music tonight.
