4. Prehab

Pallof Press isometric hold - 50 x 0:30L/R, 50 x 0:30L/R, 50 x 0:30L/R

6. Running
400's - 1:40, 1:44, 1:42, 1:45 (1 min rest between) - slight pain in my right knee on the turns

100m strides - 0:21, 0:22 (0:40 rest between)

Notes:
-Handstand hold - I was pretty shocked when I realized I hadn't touched the wall with my feet for more than 2 seconds!
-Pendlay row - These felt kind of strange, having to deload on every rep. I'll keep these in here for at least 5 more weeks to see where it takes me
-GHD situps - piece of cake, should have added more reps, didn't think about it until the 3rd set
-Pallof press isometric hold - tough
-Decline DB press - my chest felt a little fried after the Pallof press isometric hold, these were tough
-400's - I was shooting for a sub 1:45 and made it, so that means next time I decrease my rest another 0:15. My knee was bothering me a bit on the turns, I need to stop ignoring soft tissue work.
-100m strides - not feeling it today so I cut it short.

PM
30 minutes on the foam roller focused on my lower body.
10 minutes with the backknobber thing
