i went for a vigorous walk around the park today, probably three or four miles' worth

i think i chose the wrong sneakers, because my achilles heels are a bit shredded and bleeding right now

i think i am a long ways away from being able to run more than 50 feet :redneck:

I did an hour-long walk on Sunday, tis was nice. Heel spur definitely felt it later on, but it's the first time I've walked that long in a long time. I intend to do this more regularly as weather allows.

Return to the heavy weights yesterday. 147kg/323lb 3x5 quad tremors and 3x5 84kg/185lb behind the neck pu.sh p.ress for a lifetime PB. The latter was especially easy.

Also lots of unweighted shoulder/scapular stability exercises, I think these things are making a big improvement. I think I could use something analogous to this for my knee and trunk/lower back.

got it the track pants and tried a different pair of sneakers out

they are less than ideal for running but the upper on the heel part is very low-profile so it did not aggravate my already raw achilles'

i had a jog going for somewhere between a quarter and a half a mile, then walked another 2 or so on top of that

baby steps up in this bitch :paw:

i have continued with some mixture of walking and running every other day. i have made hasty progress: today i walked a mile as a warmup, and ran the full return trip home :ba:

i also determined that my fanciest shoes that i did not want to run in are in fact my best running shoes :homework: i think i will buy another pair that isn't all-white to use as a proper training pair

Summer vacation starts next week. I will be spending lots more time doing gym stuff.

I recently tested my box jump during my deload week and I got onto a 42" at 216lbs on the first try. Would like to hit 50's or 60's at some point.

I did it the front squash with 130kg/286lb, should be good for 300lbs soon.

Did me 3x10 pushups with 15kg/33lb on my back.

Also have been doing one plank every day, currently doing 2 mins and it's still hard. I could use more of this ability.

Done 130kg four times already as part of squatting every single day in some form over the past 2 weeks. The first time, it was actually a true PR.

Monday/Thu I do back quad tremors for rubbings, usually Thu is lighter or less volume. Every other day I ramp up to a 120kg front squash single as a bare minimum at home and occasionally push up to 130, then strip 10-15kg and do a few fast sets of 2-3 (only certain days). Now 130 is starting to feel less scary (I can warm up and hit 130 in under 10 minutes), so 135-140 is the next stepping stone.

My knees feel great with the increased frequency. I might even cut out the back quad tremors if the front squash continues to improve on its own, as the beat me up less. Doing lots of glute ham raises too which are helping the knees stay healthy.

Never been a serious detriment to my lifting even with my profuse sweating. Keeping my mane indefinitely, short of a freak accident or a brain tumor. Fuck jobs!

Been hitting volume personal bests for the last 3 weeks, latest were 3x8 back quad tremors with 133kg/293lbs, and 3x5 paused back quad tremors with the same weight. This is on top of hitting 130kg+ front quad tremors every single day with some back offs. Some 3x8 PR's in behind-the-neck strict presses and sots presses. But my body is starting to feel like shit so it's time for a deload week.

my single day of lifting this week so far was:

a 130kg front squash single :redneck:::
3x8 slow eccentric back quad tremors with 100kg, 1 min rest
3x8 front push presses with 50kg, 1 min rest
3x8 chinups 1 min rest
empty bar good mornings and sots presses

some wall quad tremors the day prior

Might do some pushups and empty bar movements to stay mobile. Gonna be doing about 12 hours of driving over the next 2 days.

Already itching to hit it the heavy weights again, physically I feel recovered, but I definitely think I needed a psychological break from the gym.

Stupid amount of PR's in the last 3 weeks:

140kg/309lbs front squash
91kg/200lbs clean for 5x3
86kg behind the neck push press for 3x5
91kg/200lbs block jerks for 5x3
95kg clean &jerk for 6 singles every minute
82kg snatch for 6 singles every minute
70kg/155lbs snatch for 5x3 - this was formerly a 1RM less than 2 years ago
42.5kg snatch presses for 3x8
15kg kettlebell lactations for 3x8
and a bunch of end-of-workout high volume back squash PR's, which match my pre-workout squash PR's. So this implies that I got stronger, as I'm usually weaker at the end and wasn't able to hit my old numbers.

I like my new programming. Insane soreness but a deload is coming next week. Going to attempt bigger C&J numbers soon.

I did a sanctioned weightlifing meet over a year ago. Numbers were shit and they still are for my weight class tho, but I'm stronger. Didn't really enjoy the prep for a meet, just stressful and not as enjoyable as training for its own sake IMO.

Felt like ass for the last 4 days and had to miss a training day and cut another short because of extreme exhaustion from poor sleep, due to stress but I'm also just about reaching my limit. Good thing I have deload week now. I took a few attempts at 90kg snatch and came close but decided to call it there because I was getting dizzy.

we live in an extremely hilly area, so this is way harder than it used to be :gaylol: i am down to about a 10:00 or 10:15 mile, quite embarrassing really

also running alongside busy streets is bullshit, i need to hit up the few trails around here more regularly. distance running on trails :xx:

today I did:

snatch 84kg/185lbs x 6
clean+jerk 97kg/214lbs x 6
pus.h pr.ess behind the neck 88kg/194lbs 5x3
back s.quats 142kg/315lbs 5x4

almost a grand total of 4 hours including all the warmups and a minor break, but that was well worth it. PR's across the board and massive confidence boost for bigger lifts for the coming weeks.
