4 days out!!!
Training: session 1
3 mile trail run with 900' elevation in 30:07!! Just blew the doors off that one with 2:15 improvement!! What the hell?!? The first mile sucked big time, it always does. There's 600' of climb in that first mile and it hurts like a SOB! and I can't seem to get that mile in under 12 min. I dug in after that though.
One thing I did differently today was have a pre-run drink of 12oz rice milk plus 8oz soy milk with about 1/8 tsp sea salt about 10 min before the run and another of the same after I got home.
I mounted my rings from a higher part of the garage which now allows me to do muscle ups and dips with my legs straight. Sweet! I should have done that 6 months ago!
Ring Muscle-ups x 2,4,4
Archer ring dips x 5,4,4
Bulgarian ring dips x 5,5,5
Tricep push-ups x 11,10,10
Tricep push-ups - starting position is from the elbow plank, push up from there is one rep. This was a good power/hypertrophy workout.
Make no excuses to skip a training session. Feel stressed, sad, sick or tired? Go train. Your friends, your heart, mind and body will lie to you. Telling you that you need that recovery day. Go ahead, stay home. I'll be training that day and getting better no matter what.
