Yesterday brought a good little workout, after a delay. My plan was to get after the first portion of the session in the AM, but my energy levels were just not there. So, I read my body and did what I needed to do throughout the day so that I had proper energy at the workout. And when workout time came, it was great:
3 x 10 forward rolls
3 x 5 skin the cats (2 rounds on the bar, 1 on the rings)
3 x 3 max handstand holds
3, 3, 3, 3 Power Snatch
4 rounds of:
300 meter row
15 toes to bar
The gymnastics at the start were great, the skin the cats felt very strong and controlled and the handstands are feeling more secure as well. The best part of the handstands was that I was able to adapt to falling off balance really well. The snatches lacked in a little focus but I pulled 165# with relative ease. My feet splayed open a but, but I was able to lock it out overhead fast and strong. After a bit of a breather I hit that metcon...
My goal was in the 5 minute range and after the first round I realized that was just NOT going to happen. This got me so bad in fact, that with the final round, after the first four toes to bar, I finished the rest with just singles. I squeezed in the last rep at 9:05 and was wonderfully spent! I stretched a bit and headed home to catch the end of the NCAA championship game. Today, after resting up and cooking up a huge breakfast after Lindsey headed out for work, I hit the trails for a 50 minute run. This turned out to be WAY harder then I was expecting, not because the trail was brutal, but because my ankles and calves were still so brutally sore from the Sectionals workout. I felt like I had no control over my legs as I ran, they just thumped along getting heavier and heavier with each step. Ugh. So I guess a whole heap of rolling and stretching is in order tonight!
But what is best about tonight (potentially) is that I plan to run off all alone to camp out in the wilderness! Have no clue where r how it might turn out, but I have a sleeping bag in the car and after my last session tonight I plan to just drive out to the mountains and find myself a little secluded spot to hang and connect with nature. Hope it works out!
