17km becomes 18,5km…… beautiful nature in few square kilometers

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 🙂

Cycling instead of walking / jogging today

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.

2nd walking session this week due calf recovery

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.

Walking today instead of jogging

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 😀

Set my markers today

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 🙂

Stage 1 and 2 on 1 today …….

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”:
1. Focus
2. Discipline
3. Structure
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

Practices what you Preach

Training 20-6-2017 squats, deadlifts and bench presses…..

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……

45 minutes…..
Squats 2×8 20kg 2×8 50kg 2×5 80kg 5×3 110kg (pause squats)
Deadlift 5×3 130kg
Bench press 2×8 20kg 2×8 50kg 2×5 70kg 5×3 90kg
