Summer fast approaching – Upper A 09.05.2018

Following the glorious weather of the May bank holiday weekend, and a day working from home yesterday, it was time to head back into the office, which I decided to do on my Giant Defy 2010 road bike. It wasn’t as warm as it had been over the weekend (thankfully), so I started out, and did most of the ride with my balaclava and coat on. It is warming up during the day today, so I expect to not need either of those on the way home tonight.

At lunch I took on Upper A, but was not feeling very strong. My nutrition, rest or hydration over the weekend and start of the week has not been great, and it showed! I upped the weight on the bench, and rows, but ended up reducing it to lower than I did last time I took on this workout. Overall I am glad I did the workout, but was a little disappointed that I couldn’t hit the same weight as last time out. I was very happy with my form on the lower weight, and feel that may be a better plan next time. After all, the pyramid is only as high as it’s base!
