Monday recap: I did open gym at parkour. For the most part, I reviewed some vaults and worked on some pop mounts. I'm still largely working my way back into things. I eventually managed to land some nice speed vaults, pop-thief vaults on the 4' high box, and some kongs. Silks class kicked my ass, but in a good way. It was strength and conditioning week, so we did long routines on the silks. Whew. I didn't specifically learn any new moves, but I got my sweat on. At this point, the biggest thing holding me back is that my endurance is crap (well, and some weaker than desired core muscles). So, this class was great for me, even if it made me feel like I was going to puke. Tuesday: not much, but it's okay since I was sore, and since it was pouring outside. *shrug* Wednesday: Did band assisted pull-ups, push ups, silk tuck to inverts, leg raises, splits sequence, and some yoga. I will hopefully get a 2-3 mile walk this evening. The food goals are decent so far. I've had a salad as a meal every day, and we no longer have any soda in the house to tempt me.
Self-indulgent whining.... Goals are going to be super simple: 1. Go to parkour and silks classes according to schedule, even when I don't want to go. I'm currently doing 2 classes on each of Saturday and Monday, and I can't let the blahs stop me from going. Yesterday was a perfect example: I didn't want to go, but went anyway, and after the fact, was glad that I did. Part of the grade will simply be showing up. The other part will be attitude when I'm there. This means that when I'm doing parkour open gym, I need to focus on rebuilding my skill base rather than getting frustrated about things I can no longer do. 2. Do a big workout on either Wednesday or Thursday each week. This means pull ups, push ups, core, and grip. I'm going to set a goal and then if I can't complete it, drop down to an easier version of the exercise rather than abandon ship altogether. 3. Splits stretching at least 2 times per week (not including silks classes). It should only take 5 or so minutes, so there's no reason for me to skip this stuff. 4. At least one meal per day needs to be salad or something healthy and home-cooked, even when I don't feel like it. 5. Soda at most once/week. I drank soda for many years. I gave it up shortly after starting nerd fitness. But, in the last 6 months, I've resumed the habit.
