    Not too bad on the FR kick. Man, LCM FR kick with a board is just the pits. It's soooo good for leg strength, but it just sucks soooo much. I went on 2:00 to keep pace with Trip who was swimming them on the same interval. Numbers five through seven probably would have been a lot faster and closer to the other six times if I had more rest!

    - statue of liberty sit ups (no weight)
    - single leg v-ups
    - full body crunch
    - crunch (:30) to sit-up (:30) (RD1), sit-up (:30) to crunch (:30) (RD2), crunch to sit-up alternating (RD3) w/ 6# mb
    - sit-up with arms raised above head
    - streamline hold (RD1/RD2), leg hold 6 inches off ground w/ 6# mb between legs (RD3)

    So Trip was really unhappy with his 12x150 yesterday. The hot water had him struggling and he did not make the interval on all 12. He therefore insisted he had to redo the set today. I forgot my parachute to do power work, so it was back to the 12x150 again!

    (Also Trip made all 12 no problem today)

    CORE7
    (for a refresher, it's 7 core exercises done as 1:00 of work followed by :30 rest (RD1), :20 rest (RD2), or :10 rest (RD3). After each round, 3:00 break.)

    - 4 power crunch into 4 power sit up (RD2/RD3 change exercises on command)
    - 8 bicycle kicks into 1 sit-up (RD1), 2 sit-ups (RD2), or 3 sit-ups (RD3)
    - leg lift into 1 crunch (RD1), 2 crunches (RD2), or 3 crunches (RD3)
    - static crunch with scissor kick (RD1) or BIG SLOW flutter kicks (RD2/RD3)
    - side plank dips (switch sides at :30)
    - burpee w/ plank out and in and NO push-up (RD1), full burpee (RD2), half burpee w/ 4 shoulder taps (RD3)
    - 4 mountain climbers into 4 knee tucks w/ gliders (RD3 change exercises on command)

    The CORE7 instructor took a leave of absence in September to start nursing school, and I wasn't really a fan of the other instructors they brought in to teach similar classes in his time slot. With school out, he has resumed leading the CORE7 class for the summer. My quads and hamstrings were so sore from squat and RDL yesterday, so the mountain climbers and knee tucks with the gliders was pure torture!

    Trip did 10x100 @ 2:00 BEST AVG. I came in planning to do resistance work so I passed on that set, but I constructed my main set so we could race on a couple of the 100s. I felt awful on the fast stuff. Great for 10-20 meters after I dropped the chute, but then it all fell apart.

    Well my "mile pace" work was all over the place. Wrote the workout as I intended to do it, but looking at the results it was more like MP, MP-.5, MP-1.5 !! Starting to find the easy speed (first 6-7 strokes of each 100).
