Started today with 40 minutes of stretching and mobility…awww feels sooo good!
Then
Assault Bike cals (1:1 work/rest)
50, 40, 30, 20, 10
4:58 / 3:51 / 2:49 / 1:41 / 42s (work time each set)
***finish time with rest 26:20
(think I shorted myself on some rest time..math is tough under fatigue along with trying to reset the cals on the AB) Happy to see my speed increase slightly each set!! Tried to hammer out first 10 cals fast (60-65) and then settle into a steady pace between 55-58.

Good work on your Sunday cardio! Even counting gets hard when you’re fatigued!
