I took three days off training - it was a mix of sulking (or at least not wanting to train), not having time due to kids' stuff and work and feeling a bit off due to the vaccine. Felt more like three weeks TBH. On reflection, you are right, JT - it wasn't a total disaster. I'm ready to get going again now!

Thursday

Start of the new training block.

Goals: 195kg squat, 132.5kg bench, 225kg dead. LET'S GO!

Squat
122.5kg x 9, 9, 9

Bench press
82.5kg x 9, 9, 9

Deadlift
145kg x 7, 7

A bit of assistance work and back on the rower later on today.

Strong benching and nice high HR rowing. Grin

I wonder how much the 4 x 2 mins TR session took out of you recovery-wise?

Lovely 40 mins of rowing!

Brilliant work, JT. My hatís off to you for smashing that one out of the park.

Nice session. Grin

Excellent session. It's no wonder you were getting tired by the end of it!

What a brilliant season you have had! Loads of metres!

I can imagine you pulling your wife and boy round the street like the crazy old man that you are. Grin

jt said:520 total not so disastrous?

Do you need some fractional plates for the bench?


It feels like the last four months has been a waste of time.

I do have fractional plates, but I don't currently use them.

Maybe it's time for a change of programme?

Friday

MAX day!

Squat
150kg x 2
165kg x 1
180kg x 1
195kg x f

Bench press
100kg x 2
110kg x 1
120kg x 1
130kg x f

Deadlift
170kg x 1
200kg x 1
220kg x 1

A pretty disastrous session. The squat wasn't really close, the bench couldn't have been any closer and the deadlift was 5kg up on last time I maxed - at least I finished on a positive.

Keep them coming, Rick. You are keeping all of us baldies/silver foxes thoroughly entertained.

You know youíre near your max when 0.5/500m improvement seems too much. Grin

Iím sure youíll smash it.

Congrats on the 100 and 500 PBs. You should be buzzing!
» The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (Go to post)29-04-2021 @ 19:54 
Brilliant pace that!

What do you reckon you can get it down to?

Wednesday

Another late one...

C2

Warm up
5 mins 1317 1:53.8 25

6 x 500m, 2 MR

9:56.7 3000 1:39.6 30
1:39.6 30
1:39.6 30
1:39.8 31
1:39.8 31
1:40.9 31
1:36.9 38

Annoyed with myself: the erg did that weird thing where it missed some of the start of the 5th rep. I spent 170 m trying to get back under what I thought was my target pace of 1:41, only to realise with two pulls left that my target pace was 1:40. I wanted to punish myself/prove to myself that I could have hit the pace by going for it a bit on the last rep. I had to sit outside in the garden for ten minutes after that! Ouch! Grin
