I am labeling this as a cross training workout even though it started as a run. I got about 1.5 miles into what was supposed to be a 4 mile run at about 8:15/mile pace. It only took about 13 minutes for my hands to nearly fall off in pain. It is the beginning stages of a 6-12 inch snowstorm and the temperature is about 17 degrees F. I was dressed fine for the run, except I have gloves that are really only rated down into the thirties. My hands hurt. I started off thinking 4 miles and I felt good. After a mile, I adjusted to 3 miles because of the hands being really cold. Then, by about 1.35 miles, I knew I was screwed. They weren't cold anymore, they just burned. I forced myself to finish 1.5 miles and got inside. It took about 10 minutes for them to stop hurting.
I then quickly started a makeshift station workout for the next 15 minutes. It was half hazard and on the fly, but my upper body is toast right now so I am happy. Here is what it looked like:
1. 25 Pushups
2. 1 minute farmer's walk w/about 39 lbs. on each side.
3. 5 scorpions to each side
4. 30 Russian twists
5. 10 Medball slams
I did this whole workout 3-4 times through with no breaks between each item and only about 30 seconds between sets. Again, the timing is all estimated loosely. I through it together so don't hold me to timing.
I am going to try to get on the bike or treadmill later if it is possible. Unless I am doing a lot of snow removal. By the way, that's not me in the picture. I just saw it and liked it.
