Is this off season?

So today is great, the kids are off to school and I get to clean the house and do 10 loads of laundry, clean all the animal cages/litter boxes, etc.... you get the picture. Then in between washes I get to hop on my trainer and do an insane mash up on my bike:

30 minute progressive warm up ( 115 watts to 230 watts) with 2 x 15 seconds at 400+ watts to get the legs going for the main set at the end, recover for a few minutes then main set:

Main set:

12 x ( 1 minute at 210-220 watts 85-90rpms then 30 seconds at mid range VO2 max- 250-265 watts)

recover 1 minute in between sets

20 minute cool down at recovery watts

I hit that baby right on the nose, it was hard but the amount of sweat I generate is impressive.

After changing into my running gear I went downstairs to finish another wash, fold clothes and put stuff away. Empty the dishwasher and clean my kids rooms. I will then try to get a bit of lunch in and then off for my 5 or 6 mile run.

After my run I will change and pick up the kids from school and start with homework then snack then sports, hooray.

House is clean, chores done, workouts almost complete. This is my off season.


  1. hey! Your day sounds a lot like my day!
    Only I didn't clean my kids' rooms. I just shut their doors and tried to pretend they were neat BEHIND those doors as opposed to the pig sties they are.
    Also, I didn't have the trainer workout! :) You are working a lot harder than I am right now! That is for sure!
    BTW my wbc count was 3.0.

  2. as you are probably aware, normal wbc is 5.0-10.0 ( or 5,000-10,000) however every lab is a bit different. The differential is very important ( i.e., neutrophils, esonophils, lymphocytes, etc..) The second blood work will be interesting, keep me posted. In the end you are going to be fine.
