A foot injury from an LSD run on Sunday night made today's blog workout impossible for me to complete as Rx'ed.

Instead I did:
5 x 30/30- Heavy Bag
5 x 30/30- Pound Tire w/10# Sledge
5 x 30/30- 25# DB Swings
5 x 30/30- Bear/Crab Crawl

I did three intervals of each of the crawls with no rest interval during the final minute.

Finished off with some core work (Waiter's Walks and Frisbee Knee-to-Chest) and a coordination drill.

Jump Rope for 5 minutes (30/30)
Squats 10 reps every 30 seconds
Mountain Climbers 10 reps (each time right knee came up was one rep) every 30 seconds.
Squats 10 reps every 30 seconds.

The Mountain Climbers killed me. I've never done those before and they were much harder than I thought they'd be.
Ended with a leisurely 10 minute walk and some stretching.
