The Apolitos brought back some goodies from their trip
I'd like to thank Dino, Ann and Emily Apolito, they brought back some goodies that they gave to me from their trip overseas - including an aboc Sprint Squad t-shirt!.
I've just put together the 13th spin session program for this winter, the A stream riders get their first full Tabata interval session. The rest of the A stream for that evening is easier than it would be normally, but the Tabatas are sufficiently brutal that I don't think any will complain. We'll fine-tune these as we progress and any feedback is much appreciated.
I've still got lingering and unpleasant flu-cold symptoms, so may not be able to train much for the remainder of this week - generally coughing up lumps isn't considered compatible with training. Still ... these things are temporary and I'll be better soon. I'm consistently repping out 180kg squats now, and did a set of 160kg deadlifts on Wednesday in the 'Haus, so that's not too bad, and on Tues at Spin I got a 1440 watt effort, which considering I'd just squatted sets of 180kg and was (and am!) crook, I'm happy with. Last winter that would have been a PB, so being able to grind that out when tired and unwell is a good sign for this coming summer.
The 'Haus has been busy this week too, I've had the Sprint Squad, some of the DUCCs and a few friends over as well. Teaching them Rip's squat. I think they'll be moaning today. DOMS is an old friend we know well!
