It’s getting old seeing people congregate or have their little get togethers. Or the group of people having a good old gathering in the grocery store parking lot with of course two cars just randomly stopped in the driving lane. That group included a toddler. I’m seeing others have their gatherings too. So many of those people are sure to be in the high risk group. Hell one of them I know among other health issues has lung issues.
As I’ve posted before, Molly had the bright idea to do a thousand burpees in the month of March challenge. Me being me I had a minor lapse of better judgment and decided to do it with her. No, honestly I’m usually game for bad ideas like this. We both decided we wouldn’t count the burpees in programmed WODs because those were ones we’d do anyways. This would have to be a thousand additional burpees.
Molly decided she wanted to do the thousand burpees during the month of March thing that someone posted about in the street parking group. I have to do them to because I want to help her get through it. So far it hasn’t been too bad. We did a 10 minute emom last week and I got through 70 in that then did another 50. Saturday I after the WOD I did them with her again and got through 100 in 8 and a half minutes or so then did it again an hour later and got 75 that time to make it an even 400.
I’ve been wanting to get back into longer rows for a while now. Well not really wanting but more less knowing it would be beneficial to my health and WODs. Last time I started rowing longer distances it greatly improved my rowing technique. I couldn’t get a stroke rate below 28-29 with fast weak pulls. The longer rows forced my to learn to row efficiently and now I can’t get a high stroke rate any more.
The other day we had to go to Best Buy to pick something up. We were a;ready annoyed because there was no price for the item. Out of no where a woman comes over to us I though great a Best Buy employee finally wants to help us when we need it. If we’re just looking at something they show up right away but when we want help they’re never around.
I decided today would be the day that I try something stupid. I’ve been wanting to do it for a while but my rowing sucked and I knew it. I had know I wasn’t finishing the pull for years and that I needed to slow the stroke rate down but just couldn’t seem to figure out how to do that. Having it in the mid 30s just isn’t efficient and kills your ability to keep going.
