Zippedy Do Da

I had a zippy workout today. I got in; I got out; I got a good session. There were three mini-circuits that I zip through:
Squat Jumps x20 yards
Backwards Bear Crawl x20 yards
30 seconds between rounds – 4 rounds

2 hand Swings x15
Mountain Climbers x20 per leg
30 seconds between rounds – 4 rounds

Renegade Rows x6 per arm
Crab Walk x20 yards
30 seconds between rounds– 4 rounds

I don't rest between exercises, and I rest a mzximum of 30 seconds between rounds. This is a fun workout because I'm jumping around like a kid and I don't have to think about every move, except the renegade rows.

So, I have a confession: I have done NO GTG this week. I've felt completely overwhelmed and have struggled to even get in all of my training each week. Something had to give, so I decided to forego the GTG. My brain just isn't positioned for pistols, pullups, and pushups. Brad - I need some advice here on whether or not to take a break on these.

The weather has not cooperated with me the last two days so I have not been able to get in a Harley ride. Insert sad face. Last week I got a ride in with my friend Dave. He snapped a picture of my bike after the ride. Here it is. Notice the crash bars and riding pegs - those were my birthday present this year!

If you're not up on Harley-Davidsons, this is a Softail Deluxe. It has an 88 cubic inch (1450 cc) engine. It came equipped with a stacked exhaust (two pipes on one side), but I split the exhaust so there is a pipe on each side and put on Screamin Eagle pipes for a nice rumble. Doing that made my bike pretty unique. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my bike. There isn't a different one I'd rather have. I'm planning on going to Sturgis again this year, but I'll have to see if it works out.

I can only swing 18 reps (30 sec) with two 12kg's before my bad attiutude takes over because I dislike them so much, lol!
