That is one thing I don't miss about contacts. I know that you are going to be better soon.

IF = 19.5 hours

1. Warmup
5 rounds:
DOT drill - 64, 64, 59, 57, 62
30/5/30 Sean special = side plank + 5 pushups + side plank
HAM hip mobility drill - elbow to instep lunge + hip drop + pigeon stretch + duck walk

2. Energy
6 rounds:
400m run
50 step ups w/ 40# pack

2 rounds = 13:34 - 2:04+4:02, 3:18+4:08

Notes:
-DOT drill - need to do this more
-HAM hip mobility drill - not a fan of this move, it just didn't flow to me at all
-Energy - ROUGH, I don't know if it's because I haven't done a serious metcon in months of if it was due to the fact that it was 99 w/ 85% humidty after 2 rounds I just felt bad. I knew I should have waited for the sun to go down but while waiting for dinner to cook I wanted to get my workout in. After I got inside and a shower I was sweating for 2 more hours after I was all done.

Note to self.....no more working out in the summer afternoons when heat alerts have been put out.

Yeah it is brutal right now. We were over 100 with a feels like temp over 105. I went to BJJ last night and seriously considered skipping just based on the walk from car to academy.

Glad you didn't get heat stroke.

The feels like was 103 I think...and today it's suppose to be 109? Freaking crazy...when I was at the pool on Sunday with Connor I felt like I was being slow-boiled. So no more working out in the middle of the day outside!

Sorry to hear about the not so good news. I hope things work out, get better, etc. as long as they don't get worse, right?

Happy early Father's Day
