Recovery and More Training

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

As promised, I took it very easy on Monday and only did my basics (warm-ups, stretching, and deep water fitness). Even though I was remarkably recovered from Sunday's over-training, I just wanted to make sure I was safe.

Yesterday was a slightly different story, but I did keep well within the parameters I promised both myself and my trainer, but I did venture into some new territory. For the first time, I was able to bench press the 40 lb barbels 20 times for 3 full sets! I was so proud of myself.

Today, my friend Corey and I are headed to the Y to start our training for the Strongman Competition they are holding there on August 24th. I found out there are a total of 6 people in my age class (41 and above) and now know all the requirements for the tasks. I am looking forward to practicing flipping the truck tire as many times as I can today to see what that is like. I am also going to work on throwing kettle bells, which is another part of the competition.

After that, we have our regular deep water fitness class, so getting in the pool after frying in the heat will be a good thing!

Have a great day, all! I know I will.

    Wow, what fabulous goals you have here. I wish there was a strongman competition near by that I could train for. I love the feeling that moving heavy weights gives me.
