18 July 2019

Bodyweight@session : n/a
Soreness : mostly abductors , some chest, lats, quads, glutes
Injuries/aches : none

-RUN 3km @ 5'45'' average km pace
C1a: walk 300m
C1b: 300m hill sprint @ 90%
-C1 info : 4 rounds
-Slow jog the remaining ~400m to round it up to 6km

Total : 6km @ 41:58

Went out to do a 5K time trial. Was keeping the sub 6 pace comfortably lungs-wise but legs were too tired from squatting, around 2.5km quads started burning and abductors almost cramping.
Could push it but saw no reason to do so, switched plan, did 4 rounds of uphill tempos. That was probably more taxing but the walking recovery made it easier at the moment.
Abductors got even more sore afterwards, was actually limping and couldn't move my leg without pain. They are fine now ( next noon ). Why do my abductors get destroyed from squatting? Is it normal or am i doing something wrong.

last 5 days or so:

some bodyweight exercises each morning. pretty strong.

tons of stretching. some intense lacrosse ball mfr on my right glute/hip/sacrum.

150 right now before sleep. will probably be 148-149 tmw. definitely getting leaner.

having fun trying to get leaner w/o running. would like to get to my leanest ever. have to swap goals for a bit until i'm 100% healthy again. that's the key to keeping your sanity & dealing with injuries.

miss running but going to try and not run for a while to see if i can heal this stupid shit.

190719 Another week gone with extreme heat
No lifting
no jump
no plyometric

This whole week, temperature is ultra hot.
Work is busy. weekend is stuck with family travel.

and knee is still crunchy and not fresh... i am guessing damage is not going to heal... or might take long time..
just sore and crunchy waffle sound like this:

Easy ball game. Felt super bouncy during the day. Attempted two dunks in warm up. First one rattled out and second one got rim blocked. Was completely cold so no surprises. It's pretty clear to me that I need to do more in week jumping. Finding the time is key.

Definitely fitter during games too. I'm always running back and pushing on offence and don't get anywhere near as tired as I used to. Good signs.

Good stuff!  More bounce and more endurance at the same time.  Still on the ATG workouts?

Thanks. Pretty surprising and I didn't realise till my teammates were telling me to slow the play down cause they were tired lol.

Yep. Still on the basics. I only have nordics, RDLs and the core stuff to get off the basics. RDLs I will knock off this week or next and the core stuff maybe the week after. Nordics... :pissed:

Ran: within 13 minutes I did 1.4 miles and finished the run in 15:22.  Around 1.8 miles.

Felt horrible but that's where I need to be almost just to pass the test so if I drop 60-70lbs and keep at it then I'll destroy the test.  Also, the first .2 miles is a slight incline and running back up the hill kills me more than my recovery down it.

Workout 2:

ISO's:
Sl standing 
Lunge
Push-up
Hip extension
Pull-up hang

Ankle flossing

Really working on holding the iso positions as long as possible.  Not sure how they will translate over to performance, but they should be great for tendon health.  My workouts lately have been a combination of stuff from Ben Patrick, Tommy John, Jake Tuura and Keith Baar.  I really enjoy learning new methods and implementing them.  That's what this area is for anyway.....'Progress Journals & Experimental Routines'

On the ankle flossing I wasn't worried so much about how many reps I did but more on moving through as full a ROM as possible.  I think that's gonna pay off with my ankle health.  I do it on both ankles, the one I sprained a little over 2 weeks ago and my 'good' one, which I've sprained a few times in the past.  Trying to get full ROM in both and clean up scar tissue.
