So, as bummed as I was about Chip leaving for Landstuhl early this afternoon I wasn't going to just mope and sit on the couch. I do too much of that already! :) I was about to change and again came the rain!!! jesus, it rains a ton here. The landlord stopped by to chat for a minute and he said we've had 80 liters of rain in August so far--which is apparently a ton. Germans use some kind of rain guage to measure volume instead of height. Despite the rain, the park was filled with families--if the rain doesn't scare the Germans, then I won't let it scare me. Off I went to start my WOD---an easy at home one!
1mile run (easy pace) and stretching
As I did this WOD it seemed easier and faster than the last time I did this. Apparently it was--the last time I did this was in May. I had reversed the exercises and did the squats first though. Do you think that reall makes a difference--I mean a whole 5 minutes of difference? It's the same amount of work. Or, maybe my running has gotten that much better? I complained that in May I was running the first 200m uphill--ha, uphill, upschmill. It's not a hill compared to what's around the corner! I barely notice the slight rise now. Is my instensity better? Pushing myself through the air squats faster maybe? I know for sure I didn't walk one bit on the run this time around, which I probably did last time. Was it the mile warmup instead of doing it too cold? Not sure, but hell--I'll take a 5 minute PR. That's almost a metcon ninja time.
