Melbourne - Mordialloc - Melbourne:
I totally wussed out on racing MTB today, I fell asleep on the couch watching the tour and decided to get a night's sleep without an alarm set.

Went for ride to Mori (and coffee) with Tim and Malachai. Though there was still a stiff northerly, we weren't going too hard so it wasn't too tough.

D: 52.6km
A: 165m

Tonight was another Kettle Bell session, perform an exercise, and every minute move to the next one. Generally this meant 10-30 seconds of rest once the reps were complete, but that's no where near enough to get your HR down.

2 x 20 Deck Squats
3 x 20 @ 24kg 2 Arm Swings
1 x 20ES @ 24kg 1 Arm Swings
1 x 6 @ 24kg Left side only
(rest for 2.5 sets)
3 x 15ES @ 24kg Clean
3 x 10ES @ 24kg Jerk
3 x 5ES @ 24kg Snatch
3 x 5ES @ 24kg Clean and Jerk
3 x 15ES @ 24kg 1 Legged Dead Lift
3 x 20 @ 24kg 2 Handed High Pull
Finished of 1 Arm Swings

Jeff handed me a 24kg KB, and at first I was happy, by half way into the 1 armed swings I was shaking, light headed and feeling the presence of lunch creeping up my throat.

I went and sat down outside while everyone else carried on, Jeff and Chris both had 24s as well, so I'm a little ashamed of giving in. I finished off the reps while everyone else packed up and stretched, but it's not quite the same.

Trying to eat some nachos became a comedy due to the uncontrollable hand shakes. I decided that regardless of any hormone suppressing effects the best way to quell them was with some Chimay Grand Reserve. I can't remember if it worked, 9% beer after a dehydrating workout seems to knock me on my arse, funny that. :)

*edit* I had listed snatches as 10 reps per set, it was 5.

PMPW: 90kg
