2 Miles + Obstacle Course Workout

On my way home from work I could see a big rain cloud coming off the the southwest. I looked up the hourly forecast and it was going to rain around 8pm. I got home around 6:30 an checked on the chickens. Ellen got back from physical therapy and said she wanted to walk the dog. I asked her to walk the same path I was about to run. We parked at the gym and started on the same sidewalk. Today was my lower carb day on my carb cycle routine and I felt like I had less stream (ate half a banana before workout) and was moving slower than last week. I reached the 1 mile turnaround in 8 min. I got over the big hill and saw Ellen had already turned around and was walking back. I caught up to her at 1.5 miles and she ran with me for a little while. When I finished my run I went into the gym to do my obstacle course workout minus the 100m runs (I ususally do it as home). I used a machine that looks kind of like this.

I did 5 pullps, 5 bicep pull ups, 10 tricep dips, and 10 pushups. I did 3 rounds in 3:51. I left the gym and Ellen was in the parking lot with the dog. I grabbed the leash and we raced to the car. Ellen is pretty fast.
