Well, since I've moved my "gym" into the outdoors or more precisely into our garden, I've been blessed with good weather, which made working out a lot of fun. So today was the first day I had to cope with bad weather. We're of course not talking really bad "thunderstorm and danger of drowning in rain" kind of weather, but bad weather nonetheless. It was cold, misty and rainy but that didn't stop me from doing my workout and after a while I was covered in a cloud of steam. I was so heated up that I didn't feel the cold at all. The rain, which was more like a constant drizzle anyways, seemed to evaporize when touching my body. In the end I really enjoyed the change for once. The air was fresh and clean, making breathing easy.
Everything felt good.
I like doing Rack Jerks. They allow me to throw weights in the air that I would normally not be able to get over my head. I pr'd by 2.5 kg but I'm sure I could've done the 100 kg aswell.

The workout was hell! I had to split the Backsquats into sets of 15, 10 and 5 but the worst part were the 100 Kettlebell SDHPs. I did the first 30 without having to stop, than I did sets of 20 and 15. The Burpees were horrible as always ,but when I got to them I knew the worst part was over with, so they didn't really make things worse.
I'm happy with my effort, but my time should've been much faster. I really need to get intensity to the next level, if I want to go anywhere next year.

I had scheduled a team workout for tonight, but people didn't really feel like working out in the rain. I can't really blame them, although I hope they might reconsider next time after reading this (ok, this was more direct than subtle...).
All in all a very nice day in my little universe. I'll cook myself some good food now and that should be it.

Well, this just leaves me saying, don't be afraid of the rain! After all at least some of you're ancestors must have been out in the rain, hunting their food, or you wouldn't be here. They most certainly survived it, or again, you wouldn't be here.

Stay fit and see you soon!
