17 September 2018

Went for a run.
Plan was a fast 5K , to see where i am. Goal (estimation) was 30m(+-1).
Result was..... 27'54'' , HUGE MF  LIFETIME :personal-record: BY 36 SECONDS, FIRST TIME EVER UNDER 28'' , BLLAAAARRRGGHHHHH  :ibrunning: :ibrunning: :ibrunning: :ibsquatting: :ibjumping: :wowthatwasnutswtf: :headbang: :highfive:

Did the first 3km at around 90%buffer. When i saw i was at 5'35'' average at 3km, I knew i had to chase the PR and so i did. At the same time fatigue kicked in so the last 1,5km was @ 100%. However i found this new trick, like phasing out of the struggle, detaching from the body. Knowing and feeling the pain/fatigue , but somehow like watching it from above. Find the pace, follow it, ignore the pain. I have no idea if that make any sense and if i am describing it well, but it worked damn well.

yep detaching from the discomfort and watching from outside definitely sounds familiar.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

great job man!!! huge PR. :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

when's your 5k race again? sounds like you should put it in the upcoming competitions thread............ :ninja:

also, not entirely sure what the detaching feeling is. when i'm in pain/struggling, man is it brutal hah. even in races, i don't think i've ever been able to detach from it. What works best for me is going into it head on, accepting it, and accepting that it'll get worse, so more of just an acknowledgement while i'm running that this will feel horrible & won't get any better. lol. Sometimes when I mention that I "had no fight", that's basically what i'm referring to. When I don't have any fight, I just back off and don't battle it.

great that it worked so well, keep perfecting it on important runs!

pc!

acceptance and detachment are close for me. they're both forms of, "this is uncomfortable, this hurts, i know it hurts, but it's temporary, i'll be okay if i just push a bit more, i knew this would hurt before i started, ..." maybe detachment is the wrong word. but i get what vag is saying, there's something dispassionate and removed about it.

Thanks guys. It is just like LBSS says it. And indeed it is pretty close to fighting it. This 'detaching' is not actually detaching, it is an improvised way of justifying it and enduring it, which in other words is fighting it. Don't even know if i can recreate it lol, i'll tell you next time.
Adarq, the race is mid October but i really have no special hopes for it, friends that have participated say that it is too crowded to cal it a race. It is a social event actually. My goal will be to just walk fast/jog through traffic for the first 2km hoping it will take no more than 15' for that ( 7'30''/km ) and then go flat for the rest 3km aiming for 5'/km pace for a total 30-ish time. We'll see.

Sudden hectic work load attack, 2 days of no training, FML its too early for that shit!

20 September 2018

Bodyweight@session : ???
Soreness : none
Injuries/aches : none

1½ hours full court basketball.
No subs. Much improved endurance/speed etc. Was able to keep it uptempo for about a whole hour. Then i gassed out and i had to masively skip plays.
Was strong , was much faster than other times. But as it always happens, better endurance means more effort so i got wrecked lol.
Also, I finally got a badass jump after i cant even remember how long. Was an offensive rebound tip in, what i didn't realize on time was that i had the ball above the rim when i tipped it in. Teammates said it looked like a dunk, lol. But it wan't. It was just a perfectly timed tip-in that my hand met the ball at the peak of the jump. Still happy, felt younger haha.

^Naaaah, actually it was nowhere near a dunk. No matter if i was above or below the rim i threw it upwards. The only real positive thing i am keeping from this ( except from the ego pumping teammates awe lol ) is that til that i thought vert is well below 30'' so i didn't even bother. Now i got some good motivation/curiosity to do rim jumps next time.



Too many errands&social stuff during the weekend, no training again. Gotta add some discipline!

24 September 2018

Bodyweight@session : ~86kg
Soreness : none
Injuries/aches : none

ATG SQUAT:
5@65kg
5@65kg
5@65kg
15@52,5kg
-This new coach at the gym came and told me a few stuff, he is not the typical bodybuilding coach you don't want to talk with, he was very S&C knowledgeable. We adjusted my stance to shoulder width, it was getting to wide. Same with toes, i was pointing them too far out. Shocked with the result, sooo much stronger and stable/solid. It's been too long since i was last coached, i was only checking posture/depth/bend from a side view video so small errors were accumulating becoming big. That coaching session was very much needed, very glad it happened.

BENCH PRESS:
5@65kg
5@65kg
5@65kg
15@50kg

DEAD HANG PULLUPS:
6@BW+5kg
6@BW+5kg
5@BW+5kg
10@BW

So despite 2 weeks off got all reps at same loads, actually felt stronger with better control everywhere. Nice!

27 September 2018

Bodyweight@session : ???
Soreness : overall tight legs, still some soreness in glutes specifically
Injuries/aches : none

1½ hours full court basketball.
No subs again. Even more improved endurance, this time i could call it borderline good.
However leg muscles ( or CNS? or both? ) was unrecovered. Was one 'click' down in speed, quickness, reaction time, explosiveness, vert.
Also i said id do rim jumps but it didn't happen.

3 October 2018

Bodyweight@session : ???
Soreness : again quads, glutes, abductors, chest, lats , all 4/5
Injuries/aches : none

Went for a recovery/blood-flow run.
My intention was to finally hit the 10km milestone in a slow controlled pace, no matter how long it takes ( expecting to start at 7'/km and and at 7'30'' due to fatigue ).
First 5-6km were easy. Pace was just below 7'/km. Around 6,5km i felt too tired, the sore legs started hurting. I decided to quit at 7.5km.
But then, around 7km something changed, i 'zoned in' , it all became mechanical and effortless.
Got 10km in 1:09:17 with an average pace below 7' and the fastest km being the 10th ( 6'45'' ).

4 October 2018

Bodyweight@session : ???
Soreness : overall tight/sore legs, still some DOMS in chest & lats
Injuries/aches : none

1½ hours full court basketball.
Same with last time. Borderline good endurance but wrecked from weights&running. Slow, unexplosive, tight/stiff etc.
It is all fine, i see this bball session as another running training session, with lots of sprints etc.
For now focus is the race next Saturday, then i can shift some focus to weights & being -somewhat- peaked/fresh Thursdays that i plat bball.
