Bodyweight@session : 84,5kg
Soreness : still some hamstrings from RDLs, also some glutes and quads from running, wtf!
Injuries/aches : none

ATG SQUAT:
5@62,5kg ( +2,5 kg )
5@62,5kg ( +2,5 kg )
5@62,5kg ( +2,5 kg )
15@45kg ( +3 reps )
-Nice progress but i wanted a better feel.

BENCH PRESS:
5@62,5kg ( +2,5 kg )
5@62,5kg ( +2,5 kg )
5@62,5kg ( +2,5 kg )
15@45kg
-Got all reps with 62,5kg but they were disappointingly hard. Couldn't add reps at the drop set either.

DEAD HANG PULLUPS:
5@BW+5kg
5@BW+5kg
5@BW+5kg
9@BW ( +2 reps )
-Nice.

So i got my planned reps/sets but feel wasn't the one i was expecting. Maybe still adapting. Also very bad sleep time the last 2 days, 4am or so.
Probably a little bit of both, no big deal/rush anyway, it is still too early.
woot

Bodyweight@session : ???
Soreness : some mild here and there, like everywhere but mild, id call it systemic DOMS lol
Injuries/aches : none

1½ hours full court basketball.
WRECKED , absolutely wrecked!!! No subs so it was 90 minutes nonstop after what, 3 months?
Endurance was bad, but not as bad as i expected. Strength was good, speed was ok. But body was not ready for that. Now ( next day ) it feels like i was run over by a truck or sth.
Oh well, ballers gotta ball!  :P  :ibjumping:

Lol yes it is getting ridiculous. Whenever i am about to adapt to sth, i add sth else. Squats, then RDLs, then running, then bball, now lunges. I am in a mild pain DOMS for 10 days straight now but im just sucking it up. Hopefully (normally) it ends this week.

Again torn between hitting the weights or running, again running won!  :ibrunning: :ibrunning: :ibrunning: :ibrunning: :ibrunning:

So went for a 5K , unfortunately there was a concert exactly at the middle of the course i do, roads were packed with cars and pavements were packed with people. Modified my course a bit but still couldn't get a steady rhythm, interruptions all the time as you can see from the graph below.
Oh well, 5K is 5K , got them in 36 and a half minutes.



In other (related) news, I signed up for a 5K at this event : http://www.thessalonikihalfmarathon.org/index.php?lang=en.
Unfortunately it is a major event that all the city goes to run at it, and it is a ~1M city. So from what i hear the start is awful, queues are huge unless you are in the 15' group and there are people all over the place throughout the whole duration of the event. Doesn't matter, its my first official event! :D

awesome, should be fun. looks like a fast race/big event.

i don't think it'll be as bad as they say. once you actually cross the start (when chip timing begins), maybe ~30s of traffic then it'll probably clear up. so ya there might be a traffic jam before you get to the actual start line, but once you do, should open up and you'll be good.

Will be fun for sure! But the too crowded thing is real : it is a charity event that everyone wants to participate, without running, they just walk the course. It will clear up eventually but that will be much more than 30s i guess. Here is some footage of last year, the 5km starts at 2:35 , lol look at that crowd!!!

Bodyweight@session : ???
Soreness : some quads and glutes but rather minor, some systemic fatigue too.
Injuries/aches : none

1½ hours full court basketball.
Much much much better endurance. But still far away from where I want it, or even from a level i would call 'good'. But far from bad too.
Happy with speed and strength. Now gotta work on acceleration/1st step and also vert. The less tired i get the more of those i can phase in my game.

10 September 2018

Bodyweight@session : ???
Soreness : some minor lats glutes and shoulders/pecks(?!?!?)
Injuries/aches : none

-Run 2.5km in ~15' ( 6'/km average pace )
-Slow jog/walk ~500m
-Sprint ~200m + walk back x 4
-Cool down slow jog/walk ~400m

Total : 5km in 35'

Was about time to start pushing. Happy, both lungs and legs were very... cooperative. 6' pace was just pushing a bit above comfortable, not even close to (current) max.
Tracker reported a top speed PR during the 200m sprints but i an not buying it, it says 18,5kmh, previous was 16,8. It didnt feel that fast so I am not claiming it, unless i repeat it next session.

Bodyweight@session : ???
Soreness : quads and glutes a lot , chest and lats and shoulders medium
Injuries/aches : none

Damn it , all that progress in the weight room came with some DOMS consequences.

Went for a recovery run. Kept it very easy, one click below 'comfortable', actively slowing down all the time, could as well stop running and start fast walking at the same speed.
In the back of my head i wanted to do 10km with 7'/km pace. In real world, my pace was close ( 7'15'' ) but VMOs started cramping at around ~4,5km so decided to stop at 6km.

Total : 6km in 43'35''

13 September 2018

Bodyweight@session : ???
Soreness : Unrecovered. Systemic fatigue/soreness all over
Injuries/aches : none

1½ hours full court basketball.
Endurance improved again. Strength good. Vert felt better, got some rebound and block attempt jumps that felt pretty high.
But being unrecovered made me slow: low speed, low acceleration, low reaction times, no explosiveness.
I guess i haven't fully adapted yet, I keep getting wrecked when i push it a bit more in frequency/volume/intensity.
Oh well, no worries, patience and consistency. Piece by piece , the puzzle will assemble well eventually.
