I will be taking my first true vacation in over a year this coming weekend to attend a good friends wedding in Chicago. This will no doubt wreck all of the hard work from this past week. I will try my best to track all caloric intake over the next 96 hours, but I have the feeling that I may be a little embarrassed to display it on a public forum as most of it will be liquid based!
7:45am- Crossfit WOD (101 Pull ups, squat jumps, push ups, box jumps & kettlebell swings, with 3 burpees every 2 minutes.... While wearing a weight vest)
5:45pm - Open water swim; 7x2 minutes at sprint race pace with 1 minute recovery.
Total swim time- 23 minutes.
6:30pm- Bike; 15 minute warm up, 5 x 3 1/2 minute hill repeats on an 8% grade. 12 minute cool down.
Total bike time- 59 minutes.
6:30am- black coffee, cliff bar
7:45am- CF WOD
8:30am- Mix 1
10:15am- 6 eggs, 1 piece wheat toast
1:00pm small bowl of granola cereal, half cup skim milk
3:30pm- Turkey and bacon sandwich
8:00pm- Chipotle steak fajita burrito, a few chips with guac.
My body feels quite beat up right now. My intention was to swim at a moderate level but had an chance to swim with Pro triathlete Jordan Jones from Colorado based team Riptide Multisports, and couldn't pass it up. I am quite sure that my sprint effort was his moderate, but it is always beneficial to train with better athletes.
Ironic thing was by random chance I ran into Tyler Vollz who is ALSO a member of Riptide while on my 3rd hill repeat. On a mountain bike he gave me a decent run for my money!!! Luckily I was on the Valdora "Black Pearl" which climbs like a billy goat! Sorry T-VO not this time!
