01/21/2014 AM Workout

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.
