Yes no jogging just walking today. My right calf isn’t still recovered from Saturday. That is no suprise, because barely I could walk the rest of the Saturday 🙂 You to go over your limits to get know of your currents limits 😉 Strechting, some therapy and some salve give me today’s ‘ointment’ to make a walk instead of jogging. And this went well and I notice I handle this ‘setback’ the same I did when something happened when I was powerlifting. Training within the possibilities the injure gives and this helps the recovery progress. I don’t like to take complete rest. In my opinion is handle within the possibilities you have the energy and focus to hold on your goal.. Okay maybe it will take more time to achieve it what you had planned at the start and mostly the setback and the anticipation within this process ensures that you achiev your goal within your time frame you have planned at the start. Do you know how that comes? You have a (sub)goal and they required skills ‘focus, discipline and structure’ which gives you the possibility to anticipate 😀
Today I fullfill a second round what is approx. 10km. Okay I didn’t went the way I wanted. Biggest problem today it that after approx. 3.4km my right calf ‘exploded’ and there for I couldn’t keep the pace I had. I had to added a lot of stops (walking sessions) after that. Although lungs / breathing felt good, also the rest of my body. Only you need two calfs to walk (jogging) proper 😀 I’m pround I didn’t go back home right away and fullfill the round of 10km. The coming week I should be worse jogging, due my right calf problem, although it won’t stop me continue the course to fullfill my goal. It’s like powerlifting 😉 stick to your plan and give yourself the space to anticipate (so maybe more walking session the coming week) Sometimes you need more time to fullfill your (sub)goal. A now my calf says: F@#k up! 🙂 #thereisnofinishline #nopainnogain
Again I didn’t stopped the strava app directly I fullfill my round. So I’m no donkey 🙂
Stab + Stab makes 3 😉 (sneakerhead joke :-D)
Yesterday I did a short session crosstrainer, because I wanted to challenge myself to do…. and I did 😀
Last week Monday I started jogging and I needed 5 stops (walking sessions) to fullfill 2,1km “jogging” and finally Sunday without a stop.
Today I fullfill 5km jogging without stopping. I take some rest at my brothers house and took some ice tea 🙂 and make a walk back home for recovery. Recovery my ass my calfs, upperlegs and hamstring hurting like hell hahaha. So today I made 10km total trainingsession. My goal is fullfill 10km jogging, without any stops, at the end of this month. Will I achieve this? It is just Powerlifting (life) ….. it’s starts with a (sub)goal(s) and then you need the following “things”:
This gives you the space / opportunity the get you in the flow and gives you the space to anticipate. It was hard not jogging at all on my way back home. Holding me back is needed to stay on schedule for my next (sub) goal(s)….. #THEREISNOFINISHLINE
Yes I did it, no stops until my turning point. Monday I started jogging and had to stop for 5 or 6 times. Today I fullfill it without a stop. On my way back I stopped (walking) 3 times. For the sneakerhead around us you know what I mean with “stab”. Also my scale is up and running now, so my starting weight is 128,4kg 😱
It all starts with a goal and then you need focus, discipline and structure to get you in the flow to anticipate.
Although it was a light training session…. not whahaha Iris improved herself again. Technique is improving. Also the will to improve herself.
During the training she meet herself and it all about taking the time for yourself and you can feel this to listen to your breathing 😉 And yes she didn’t like me at all during the training…
Iris & Ilrish did a great job at the DRC Cup 2017. Both won the title (Iris in -84kg class and Ilrish in the +84kg class). Awesome performance at the deadlift. Iris deadlifted 200kg. Ilrish is the first female classic powerlifster who deadlifted 210kg in the Netherlands. Below the videos of their meet.
Although I had a busy week for my self at work and luckly it was good to do it 🙂
Also with my work and normal I have to figure out what my basis level is. Yesterday it was great at work and I went over my limit 😉 And today I had a great lunch appointment with a friend which didn’t see for years. It was great and also this kind of meetings cost me a lot energy. With this knowlegde I adjust the training for today on 2 points.
training at home (instead of the Gym) so I’ve got only interaction (and music) with myself. Therefore less incentives.
I make less reps.
These 2 adjustments helped me keep enough energy and focus to do a nice and good final rehearsal for the Nationals Powerlifting Masters for next week.
Goodmornings 3×8 20kg
Squats 2×8 20kg 2×5 70kg 5x100kg 3x130kg 2x160kg (no belt) 2×187,5kg (only belt) 1×202,5kg new PB (training sleeves + belt) 🙂
Deadlift 2×3 120kg 3x150kg 1x180kg 1×202,5kg 1×222,5kg (belt ‘loose’) 1×232,5kg new PB (tigther belt) 🙂
With deadlift I felt I put too much pressure on my head. I was more willing to pull, than I was focus on a good lift off and focus on my breathing.
Bench press 2×8 20kg 2×5 60kg 5x85kg 2x105kg 1×117,5kg (wrist wraps) 1×127,5kg new PB (wrist wraps + belt)
In my opinion a very good final rehearsal. 202,5kg – 127,5kg – 232,5kg is a (sub) total of 562,5kg at this stage…… What will I be able to lift next week Sunday? 😉
A lot of light weight trainings coming up the coming days 🙂 Recovery time……
