Backlogging – GPP II and a Thursday on the country side

Back on the country side, where the farmer just sprayed his field (for the joy of the runner). We left the Cork this morning, so no more fights to watch (Glad I did saw the Golden Series and K-1 Rising fights earlier this week) or online puzzles. Four days away from modern civilization – Well, there is this one spot in the garden where the phone works, and one of the local bars with internet connection. (Where I will be posting this from).

But even on the country side, it’s still time for Ross and apparently, a run in the hills.

Thursday log:
8K in the hills of Clonakilty. (Map said about 280 feet incline). First half was really hard and even it’s quite windy, it’s hard to ignore the smell of manure. Last half of the run was a breeze.

GPP II
* 30 sec Burpees
* 30 sec Jumping Jacks
* 30 sec Split Jumps
* 30 sec Burpees
* 30 sec Jumping Jacks
* 30 sec Mountain Climbers
– 5 sets / 30 sec break –

Followed by a modified Core IV:
* 20 Russians (10kg plate)
* 10 High rep crunches
* 12 Back extensions
* 12 Back Leg extensions
* 30 High rep chinnies
– 3 sets –

Almost hated every second of the GPP II. Burpees was for some reason the easiest part. Jumping jacks hurt my feet, Split jumps hurt my thigh (when I performed them correctly! When done incorrect, too high, I didn’t feel a thing. Which leads me to: Remember to emphasize in my classes that the knee is to point to the floor), and Mountain Climbers where.. well, actually not that bad. But total evaluation of GPP II: Burning calves and thighs. Burning as in ‘being rubbed in thai oil in 40 degrees hot thailand’. Yes, I tried that. It’s HOT beyond imagination!

Core IV was as all Core WO’s: Manageable. Not a walk in the park, but definitely possible to reason with.
