5/5/2010 - Day of Driving, a Day of training
Woke up a little later then usual, feeling a bit run down from yesterday. I threw down a can of sardines and walnuts and got the blood going. Packed up and headed off toward San Francisco to visit my good buddy Shern, a friend since as long as I can remember. He’s always been one to follow what he believes in no matter the norm. Great way to live your life if you ask me.
Trained this morning at the bottom of Bridal Veil waterfall in Yosemite. Can you think of a better place to train?
Ring 1-hand Row x 15 left arm
30 split jumps
Ring 1-hand row x 15 right arm
15 squat Jumps (deep and explosive)
Rest 30 seconds and repeat, 4 total rounds.
Finished in 8:58 with a couple of stares
Did this one at an abandoned christian house off the highway
Burpee + jump (no pushup)
10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 reps finished in 8:05 - wasn’t very tired here, could have pushed harder - back on the road
Evening training - holy damn San Francisco has some steep hills
I wanted to do track work, maybe a 4 x 400 meters with complete rest. Found a hill with some steps at the end I fell in love with.
150 meters + 4 flights of stairs at the end.
4 x wind sprints. Felt like I wanted to poop, throw up and pass out at the end of each set. Almost complete rest at the end of each. I really wanted to feel like I was redlining at the end of these, mission accomplished. I know I’ll be resting tomorrow. Plan for the end of this week and next is…
AM: Max Effort Lower + total body Strength
PM: Max Effort Upper Strength
Tuesday: Triple session - hope to hit a couple cross fit gyms
Wed: Same as Tuesday, big emphasis on conditioning - hopefully some track work
Thurs: REST HARD AND EAT HARD - some foam rolling and stretching if feel I need it
AM: Lower and total strength with some complexes/rep work
PM: Upper Strength, more emphasis on rep strength
