Now it is true that those with comorbidities have a greater risk, but even superbly conditioned athletes can end up in the hospital and in the ICU…and yes, that includes those who have run 100 mile footraces while in their 60’s.
You might be rightfully pride of your Cross Fit workouts, your big bench press or your blazing 5K…or even your Boston Qualifying Marathon. But that is not immunity and, though COVID “probably” won’t kill you, it can mess you up for a long time and severely degrade your future athletic performance.
Take it seriously; mask up, and get that shot when you can!
Well, I had a great day last week. I had a good day the week before that. Today: would have been a GREAT day (for me) as recently as 3 weeks ago…very encouraging. But I just didn’t feel right at the start and it was a chore..and well:
10 x 134
10 x 184 (oh no…shouldn’t be this hard)
3 x 224 (ok..)
3 x 260, 3 x 260, 3 x 260 (1 and 3 are shown)
3 x 265, 3 x 265 (4 is shown); this exhausted me.
1 x 285 (quit)
1 x 301 (quit..probably a good thing)
1 x 285 (done)
I found that my “off the ground” speed was actually ok; I struggled a bit higher up..this was just the opposite from last month (5 weeks ago) where I struggled with the off the ground part. I am wondering if I should “go high” every 2-3 weeks or so…or maybe just write this off to a “regression to the mean” effect. This WAS the best I have ever done in my low handle sets..but these just were difficult and taxing.
After this I had a good but not great walk. Some ache toward the end; for the week I had 4 training walks and 2 social ones, all short.
