Tonight's solo workout

Made of fail tonight. I wanted to see if I could last an hour swinging. Original plan was supposed to be 20 swings, 2 minute break, repeat for 60 minutes total. Nick suggested 2min x 2min instead.

I decided to go with the 16kg bell to try and actually pull it off.

Sadly, after round 2 I had problems. Round one, I was doing all kinds of swings, 1 hand, 2 hand, hand to hand. Round 2 I was all 2 hands. Round 3 and 4 were mostly 2 hands, but I'd stop to itch. My leg was itching like mad and I couldn't ignore it any more in round 3, also felt like I was going to hurl. Round 5 2 hands, but my grip gave out on the left hand. The whole forearm burns. I think it may have had to do with my heart rate monitor.

75 swings
80 swings
30 swings
50 swings
40 swings. Mid swing on 40, the bell left my left hand, and I figured it was time to call it a night.
