Feb 13

GOAL 1: SLOW PROGRESS
Yesterday was a training day. I was unsure how stuff would go because my back was  little cranky (2 on a scale of 1-10) and after being up all night on Friday because I couldn't move my arm, I was worried about my shoulder. 

 

Warm Up:

CARs, 90/90s, monster band, shoulder stuff. 

Made sure I took more time with my warm up today -- still not as slow as I would like it to be, but I felt good enough. 

 

Training:

Hip + Hang Snatch

(1+2) 4

(reps+reps)sets

These didn't hurt my shoulder, but I stuck with just the bar to make sure it wouldn't aggravate it even more.

The hip snatches felt better. Felt my jump, and used my arms. The hangs felt odd. I am struggling with positions when i really concentrate on them. 

 

Snatch Pulls

5x4

(reps x sets)

25kg, 30kg working sets.

These felt better than last week. I kept the 30kg because my positions were so off last week. I want to make sure I create good habits. I still think my set up position isn't right -- but we'll figure that out. It could also be bc my back is so weak. I concentrated on pushing off the floor through BOTH of my legs on all reps. I figured out that I was pushing more through my right leg and just letting my left come along for the ride. working on fixing that.

 

Back Squat

4x6

Up to 30kg this week. These felt fine. Though I noticed I was flaring my ribs a bit, so made sure to concentrate on keeping them tucked and tight. 

 

Barbell Rows

5x5

20kg - did this with 15 last time. these usually make my back feel not good. Good news, my back feels good today. :D

 

GOAL 2: BODY MAINTENANCE 

since it was a training day, nope. 

 

 

GOAL 3: EAT TO SUPPORT TRAINING

logged in MFP. woke up at 4:30am because i was hungry.

 

GOAL 4: SPEND QUALITY TIME WITH SADIE

spent 10 min working on obedience and tricks. I'm trying to work with her on "stand." she's so conditioned to get treats when she sits, that she won't stay standing during a training session. we're also working on "spin." she now also gets the difference between "fistbump" and "paw."

Don't leave us hangin'. Do did you eat at 4:30 am or just go back to sleep? We need the conclusion to this story! Please don't ever write a novel.

HA! no. I did not. It was thundering out and Sadie was pacing around, so I didn't want to get up or she'd think we were up for the morning. 

 

she's sleeping like this right now:

I'm back! 

So I guess even though this is mid challenge, things are going to start heating up for me. :D

I'll report back tonight or tomorrow with how today goes, but i didn't eat too much like an asshole on the cruise. Though i did gain a few lbs. 

 

I'm changing up my food goal. I'm going to go back to following my own bastardized version of Renaissance Periodization. I'm still going to track everything in MFP. 

I also registered Sadie for an Agility class this weekend.  We've spent 3 minutes on training tricks this morning as well!

Feb 27

GOAL 1: SLOW PROGRESS
Yesterday was a training day. I didn't move up any weights from last week bc of coming back from vacation and i'm sick. my chest/throat feels like there is a dragon inside it.

 

Warm Up:

pretty much didn't warm up. got to training late bc I had an assessment on my shoulder after work. 

 

Training:

Hip + Hang Snatch

(1+2) 4

(reps+reps)sets kept these SUPER light. shoulder felt fine, but didn't want to add weight, especially after returning from vacation.

 

Snatch Pulls

5x4

(reps x sets)

25kg, 30kg working sets.

These felt better than last week. Though I'm still struggling with position and pushing through the floor. 

 

Back Squat

5x6

30kg this week. felt fine. my lower glutes are a tiny bit sore this morning which makes me happy.

 

Barbell Rows

5x5

25kg - these felt fine, and bc i could use the big plates, i could go down to the floor instead of just hanging there. 

 

GOAL 2: BODY MAINTENANCE 

since it was a training day, nope. but had my shoulder assessment. some good things will come out of it and there is lots of opportunity for improvement.

 

 

GOAL 3: EAT TO SUPPORT TRAINING

logged in MFP. not perfect, since i'm doing the RP thing now, but I figure it'll take a week or two to get into the swing of things. I forgot how much prep needs to be done for RP to make it easy.

 

GOAL 4: SPEND QUALITY TIME WITH SADIE

spent 10 min working on obedience and tricks. we're using her new kibble as treats for training this week. i'm switching her to a higher quality kibble to see if it'll help her allergies/skin. i'm trying to teach her "spin" but she doesn't seem to get what I want her to do. I'll have to look up ways to break it down to smaller pieces. she's starting to really get the difference between fistbump, paw, and other paw.

no. I bought them a while ago. but I just mash a few meals together and move some carbs around. 

so i do meal 1+2 together, 3 alone, 4 is the training shake that i don't do. 5 is a meal, and 6 is the bedtime casein shake. 

If it's a non training day, i'll do 1+2, 3+4, 5, 6.
