Bike, WOD, run

Tuesday night was the girls mtb ride at Crabtree. And I got to share it with Lisa on her second time out there.  It was a mellow ride, maybe 5 miles and I rode my singlespeed.  I am definitely learning how to ride with a beginner and the cues they need to have fun mountain biking.  Lisa did great and it was interesting to see how different the experience is when you are still new at the sport. 

Wednesday morning I did the WOD at Forged Fitness:
21 burpee pullups (I did a burpee, got on a box and jumped up to do a pullup!)
21 power clean and jerk 65 lbs
Run 400M
15 burpee pullups (I did a burpee, got on a box and jumped up to do a pullup!)
15 power clean and jerk 65 lbs
Run 400M
9 burpee pullups (I did a burpee, got on a box and jumped up to do a pullup!)
9 power clean and jerk 65 lbs
Time: 20:33
It was a tough WOD but I think I could have done it with 75 lbs, I'm still not confident in my ability to handle heavier weights but I think in a few more months I should ramp up if my technique is good.

After work, I did hill repeats in Umstead with Lisa and Edward. It felt pretty good but my Garmin was dead so I didn't actually measure how fast I was going.  We ended up doing 5 laps (0.20 miles per lap).  The shorter runs and intervals feel pretty good but I need to work on my longer distances! And I keep coming up with excuses to not run longer distances.   Tomorrow is shoe shopping for some shoes that have more stability, every time I've run for longer, my calves hurt and I slow down because my feet feel tender, especially on the trails.
