Because I want(ed) to put more pressure on calf, so I can improve my condition, I now started some Cardio training at Full of Life for the coming time. Hopefully I can continue my jogging session in about two weeks or so. Today’s Cardio training I did 4 rounds.
Round 1: Crosstrainer (1o resistance.Tomorrow next round 😉minutes) after every each 2 minutes a improvement in Watts.
Round 2: 10 minutes crosstrainer with constant resistance.
Round 3: 12 minutes cycling after every each 2 minutes a improvement in Watts.
Round 4: 10 minutes cycling with constant
Yesterday I didn’t walk, jog or cycle…… I don’t to do that when it is raining 🙂 Today I made a very nice walk with Mirella through the Dutch nature. Watch all the pictures (below) I made to see all that different nature with a few square kilometers. During the walk we also ate some blackberries. Really awesome to have this so close at home. It reminds me when I was a kid and my mother took of for a walk through the same forrest. Years ago we did the same with Kick and Loïs when they were little. Hope give me to enjoy this more in the future. You can walk different routes which is linked to a color. Yes I picked black …… and this is the longest route…. whaha…… The route sign said 17km and it become 18,6km 🙂
Do my calf problem I wanted figure out how my calf resisted cycling and therefor I cycle instead of walking/jogging today 😉 My calf hold it good and hopefully I can start up my jogging tomorrow. 🙂 Cycling became harder after the 30km and at that stage I knew I had to cycle at least 15km more 😆 Most of all it was very nice (awesome) to cycle through the dunes. The nature is really nice this time of year.
Like yesterday I made a walk instead of a jogging session. The recovery of my calf is going well at this stage. Like today and yesterday I will make a walk tomorrow and hope to do some small “jogging interval session” on Thursday. We shall see.
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 🙂
Normally during this time of year I’m training for the European Masters in July and I have than totally focus on my training. Now I’m not training for any up coming meet, it is hard to focus on my training. When you competiting for over 30 years, my goal(s) to train are set during the year. And at this stage I really don’t know…… 😀 Strange feeling….. See what it will bring in the future 🙂 So today I had an earlier low weight training (again). The temperature in the Netherlands are good (hot), so earlier work-outs are better to do than in the afternoon and/or evening in my opinion……
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.
