Cinco de Mayo: Paleo & Whole30 Style

I had a totally super-awesome so hard-so fun workout this morning. Must be the new kicks my mom sent me.
Dig my new Inov-8 F-Lite 230s. This is what they look like in person – pink & yellow!
And this is how they look in my kitchen, with overhead lighting and my pale, pale legs. Do you like how my legs and the floor tiles are practically the same color?! Looks like someone needs to slap on some low-dose sunscreen and enjoy a little Vitamin D time, no?

1:00 row @ 90% effort
1:00 single-leg jump rope
:90 active rest
1:00 burpees @ 90% effort
1:00 double-unders or singles
:30 American kb swings, 16 kg

Round 2: 264m, 19 burpees
Round 3: 248m, 18 burpees
Round 4: 263m, 18 burpees

It was sweatastical!
And the new shoes performed beautifully. Thanks, Mom!
