Not because my feet were swollen or anything like that. I think they were just happy to see me. It'd been a while since we'd hung out. I was worried they'd be mad at me. They weren't. They're pretty forgiving like that.
I opted to run some intervals on the treadmill. I pulled the SI workout from CrossFit Endurance for this week. It was 3-7 x 400 w/ 1:00 rest between sets. Keep intervals within 2-3 seconds of each other. On the treadmill, that's easy. Just go the same speed. With CFE, you pick the # of intervals based on the distance you're currently training for. I wanted to get between 5-7. I opted to run a 10:00/mile
1 was good.
2 was great
3 was great
4 was good
5 was eh
6 was OMG I'm going to die.
7 was, well, I stopped at 6.
I was insanely hot - and short of breath - and decided cooling off in the pool sounded much more fun than another 2:30 on the treadmill. Looking back, I should have pushed the SI speed. I knew this by Interval 2, but that whole "keep the intervals within 2-3 seconds" was jumping out at me. Next time, for sure.
I was amazed at how good my legs felt. Those felt like I could have kept going for a while, which is good I guess. The cardio was a bit off, but I'm guessing that will return pretty quickly.
This morning was lifting (Squat - Press - Deadlift.) I'm struggling with the Press. I'm going to hit deload/reload soon. I'm okay with that. I make no qualms that my shoulders are my weakest major muscle group.
