Helen, how do I hate thee, let me count the ways:
the way the kb swings RUIN the second 400 meter run , the way the KB swings ruin the pullups . .
Helen: as rx'd
400 meter run
21 kb swings
Home course, best home course previous record: 10/15/07 16:04 . . .
Previous best at the gym 12:46 as rx'd
Not bad for home, not my best ever, but in the ballpark. I know where I lost it:
first two rounds of kb swings unbroken . . . 3rd round 13-8 . . .
6-6, 4-4-4, 4-3-2-1-1-1
And my runs were slow as molasses.
But now I know how and where I can make up the time:
1) show some sack, don't break the swings, I mean, honestly? The last round? 8 from done?
2) Suck it up on the runs. Sure the first 100-200m is just getting your ass back, but really, I can run faster.
3) get the pullups closer to unbroken.
I didn't spend a lot of time bar staring or transitioning between exercises.
I think I've got 30 seconds right there and good enough for a pr if keep that in mind.
