Dips and 1/2 Mile Run

I rested 4 days from my last dip workout and tested max reps yesterday.  Got one more rep but it wasn’t a complete waste of training time.  It was only 4 days worth of workouts – consecutive days of 1/2 my max reps for 4 sets done throughout the day.  I’m going to base my new daily dip workouts on my new max.  Bodyweight was 212lbs. 

Ran 1/2 mile in 4 minutes and 17 seconds on the street and trail on 10-3-12.  Wore my clunky Asics so it wasn’t meant to be an all-out run.  It was pretty hard and I think even if I had gone to an RPE of 9 (it was about an 8) it wouldn’t only been about 20 seconds faster on that day. 

Haven’t decided yet what my next 30-day running experiment will be.  I did a short kettlebell workout yesterday and am trying to figure out what I want to do in terms of general training.
