Done a 12.2 mile bike ride. Not much flat ground around here.

Knocked out a 6.67 mile run yesterday after work since it cooled down somewhat- it was only 99*
The temps are climbing back up to the triple digits so I will be in the gym today after work to work on legs and core.

That 10min/mi is a huge barrier to get over - big congrats! Keep it up. You'll be running a sub-30 min 5K in no time!

You are a masocist . I can barely walk between my car and the house in this heat! Nice job.

CrossFit: A long workout with power cleans, press jerks, ring rows, overhead squats (finally go the balance thing down), kettlebells, 1m row, and finally as many burpees as you can to finish up a 20 min workout cap.

Unlike SW I did this a 6 in morning (still, it was 75*) and it only lasted 20 minutes.

Yes, just realised how close I am today when I discovered that 5K is 3.1 miles, not the 3.3 miles that had somehow become stuck in my head. Just a couple more weeks and I WILL do it!

And nothing wrong with 6am, early morning workouts are the best. It's so quiet and it's not become too hot to want to do anything. Then you feel awesome for the rest of the day too.

Lol...thanks, but it's a dry heat up here and there was slight breeze so it wasn't that bad.
However, I was in Long Beach last weekend and found the humidity to be miserable and could not wait to get back to my dry heat

I really wish I could get up early enough to run in the morning before work, but it never seems to work out. Although I'm planning on a nice long run this Saturday morning after I go Salmon fishing.

I'm pretty far from the coast here. Riverside is on the edge of the desert, so it's a dry heat here too! Still say I wouldn't run in 99* blech!

Another good run today. 3.4 miles. Nothing particularly interesting other than actually seeing other runners out and about for the first time in... ages!

Way to go everyone! Good to see you are all overcoming the obstacles!

Missed the gym on Wednesday, had to put an alternator on the car.
Thursday was leg day, 3 sets of 6 reps.
(PB) Squats 110#
(PB) Straight Leg Deadlift 95# I can do more just afraid of injury. I'll work up slowly.
Leg extensions 110#
Seated Squats 150#
Abs Machine 120# (3 sets of 20 reps)
Elliptical - 5 min warmup before weights, 35 min HIIT after weights. (There wasn't alot of difference between the high and low, Legs were dead after the weights but I expected that.)

Hit a new low weight of 227 pounds!!!!!!!!

Gym today - rowing machine for 5,000 meters at about 30 s/m, plus weight training. Longest and fastest time yet on rowing machine.

Ran 10 miles on Saturday and rode 15 on Sunday and spent about 1:30 in the gym.
Gonna try for a Monday run after work today
