I’m not going to lie… I woke up an hour-and-a-half late this morning! I flew a contract flight on the other side of the country yesterday and then airlined back home to Phoenix last night. It made for a long day, and my body made me tap out without me knowing! =D

So… I woke up the kiddos, made them breakfast and whipped out this 15-minute WOD while they got ready for school.  It’s not the WOD I was intending, but I made it as intense as possible, by leaving out the breaks between sets. It helped that I set my coffee maker last night, so a couple of swings of Peet’s finest ground beans got me started.

I didn’t stop to wonder if I should train this morning – I just did it. Getting going was the most important part.

This is what I did…

WOD 8-26-15

Warm up: Grabbed a coffee mug, filled it with coffee, went out back to my gym… Hahaha… just being honest.

  • I hung off my pullup bar for a minute or two, then went at it.

Main set:

  • 12 bar-to-chest pullups + 20 pushups
  • 10 bar-to-chest pullups + 20 pushups
  • 8 bar-to-chest pullups + 20 pushups
  • 5 bar-to-chest pullups + 20 pushups
  • 5 bar-to-chest pullups + 20 pushups

2-minute breather (and a swig of coffee)

  • Standing Dumbbell curls (3 sets)
    • 2 seconds up, 2 second hold, 2 seconds down (5 reps/side) – lower the weight, then
    • 2 seconds up, 2 second hold, 2 seconds down (5 reps/side) – lower the weight, then
    • 2 seconds up, 2 second hold, 2 seconds down (5 reps/side)

1-minute breather (and, yes, a swig of coffee)

  • 1 set of tricep pushups to failure, then three more forced reps

That’s it! I ate a banana, downed the rest of the coffee and a cup of water, then headed out the door with the kiddos with a cup of oatmeal.

Running tomorrow…

See you on Friday!
