  1. It is still chaotic, but I survived the company run (5 km) at 30 °C without training. It was not too bad. It took me 33 min with 2 walk breaks. For the circumstances, it was really decent. And then I did my first weightlifting competition yesterday. It was fun, it was exciting and went well. We included an outdated discipline into the program, so it was snatch, clean&jerk, clean&press. I did 6 out of 9 and reached all my usual training max. Now a summer of strength and technique is ahead
  2. What a ride! Thesis is finished, somehow I got my first real job and now I need to reorganise myself between new job, leftover thesis chaos and my normal life. And I signed up for my first weightlifting competition. Goals for the next week: * running 1x/week * lifting 2x/week *eating more balanced, more protein
  3. Cutting time is over! At the very end I lost less than expected. The weight stayed more or less in the range. Let's say if it continues there when I start eating maintanence. Training is more focussed on light and technique oriented sessions. This fits me really well. Maybe I learn it once to accelerate the bar fast enough with my hips...
  4. Nothing interesting on the training front. Nothing is moving in terms of PR, but I am focusing at the moment on the technique and especially on a good, solid, strong, deep squat position. And I'll will add a squat routine to my workouts since I need to become less weak Last weekend was a competition in our gym and it was great watching it (and us winning both team competitions). I really need to become stronger and better to start competing. The cut is going well. I already dropped 2 kg and I need to lose another 1-1.5 kg within the next 10 days, but it should be possible. Then I'll see if I can maintain it and then do another short cut at the end of april/beginning of may. The entropy in the system increased. I just confirmed to friends that we'll go for a weekend to italy All the coffee, all the dolce and all the fantastic food ....
  5. I see german lessons are not included into this challenge. I assume it is a mistake?
  6. Back to training after a crazy 1.5 weeks between work and more work that needed to be finished. Today's training was rather poor, but Wednesday will be good again I decided to go for a short cut....I aim for 2 weeks on 1300 kcal/days including probably one cheat day and 2-3 times a week around half an hour run. It should allow me to drop 2-3 kg.
  7. Rainbows! Happy, little, sparkling rainbows <3
  8. So....my marathon project seems to come to preliminary end. This mean for 1 or 2 weeks free evenings after work and training. And this could result in more runs and back having a social life. Besides being stressed, I am doing well with training and food. The calorie intake has been increased to a maintenance level. The scale is stable within the normal fluctuations. I only noticed that my protein intake may have been too low, now I am aiming to eat at least my body weight in g protein. Liftingswise, it is going okayish - no huge improvement and no step backwards as well. We started adding more squats (front and back) to the training. This should improve the strength side. Last week a hit the first time a 55 kg squat. That was cool
  9. That a couple of them stop talking when I get in their vicinity. (Of course they could be discussing something personal, in which case I find it kinda impolite.) And the fact that they still like to remind me the joke I made over a month ago. Don't be stupid. they seemed to be okay. If you enjoy going there, just go The circuit is fun anyway.
  10. First run in 2017 - check! It was not as bad as expected. The torn back was noticeable during the run, but besides this it was quite decent for a first round. It involved a lot walking, but this okay.
  11. Last week training was interrupted by this beautiful strained back. I skipped a training session in favor of a potential healing and then I traveled for a couple of days. In Berlin I spent time with @AugustaAdaByron and we went to her gym and joined the ladies night. The circle was a lot fun and it seemed not to exhausting, but on monday my body was surprisingly sore. The whole meet-up included a couple of coffees, some cakes and a great plate full of falafel and meat. Maybe some of the fellow ladies joining the ladies night got scared by non-vegan food on the plate. Training on monday was not good. I lacked somehow concentration and energy + strained back reappeared. Todays training was a lot better. A couple of light snatches from the knee 1x4 10, 15, 20 and 25 kg Clean and jerks starting with 20, 25, 30, 35, 37, 38, 39 and 40 kg Squat overhead presses 5 x 10 - 10 kg BS 20,30, 35, 40 kg (failed the last 40 kg round)
  12. Worst training ever. I was too stiff and tired and not concentrated enough and too slow and did mistakes I normally never do and my back was still hurting from an insulted muscle. On the positive end: Even when I am totally confused and in horrible shape, I can still snatch 30 kg and c&j 35 kg.
  13. We'll see how does the burpees in the end Maybe this might be useful for you while your practising for
  14. And another week passed....I somehow teared a muscle of my back, it hurts slightly but it does not seem seriously injured as well. At the end of the week, I'll have a 5 days break from lifting, this should be enough for recovering. It Anyway, our trainer made up a first training plan and set a goal for fall: 60 kg clean and jerk, 50 kg snatch. It might be a bit too optimistic. At the moment the goals are 15 kg above the current PR (and these are performed with a lousy form). At the moment it is a lot of technique training: hanging snatches, power snatches, standing jerks, cleans, @80-85% max. + Front and Back squats. We are a group of 3 people which are more or less on a comparable level and it is really nice to train together, learn from each other Foodwise, it is going well. I am focussing on eating more protein (more skyr, more meat, more joghurt, more cottage cheese) and less carbonhydrates. This week went well until now, I somehow need to pay attention that I eat enough (but a piece of cake easily feels the calorie budget )
  15. awww....I got an own exception clause for cake <3
