Sunday 6/3/11

I kind of got out of the habit of posting my workouts, not that I have been working out all that much. I do a lot of walking mostly. I did manage to walk 10.6 miles in 3 hours at the Big Sur Marathon (BSIM) at the end of April. I haven't gotten back under the bar yet for various reasons but I hope to start this week.

I met with a new endo before the BSIM and we adjusted my meds I am now on the following

HC: 15-5-5
FC: .1-.05

In two weeks I will be climbing my first peak in the Sierra since having my surgery. I have a couple of climbing buddies that are going to take it easy on me so it should be fine. In the meantime I need to get in shape. Today I went to hike a nearby peak in the Santa Monica Mountains

Calabasas Peak
4 miles round trip
1000 feet elevation gain loss
carrying a 30 lbs. pack

2 hours

Okay it shouldn't have taken me so long even carrying the pack. Normally I do this hike in about 1 hour 15 minutes. I brought my wife along. She's not in the best of shape but we are making some improvements. Hiking with pack however did allow me train for my trip so it's a nice compromise. Afterwords I did a cold water soak to help reduce inflammation and increase recovery.

Tuesday 6/5/12

HC: 15-5-5 last dose at 6 p.m.
170 lbs. in the a.m.

Snatch 10-12 x1
55 10x
Snatch Pull 3x3
75-80-85
Front Squat 5x3
55-65-75

It feels good to have finally gotten under the bar. I struggled with the snatch so I stayed at 55. I felt stiff and slow. I finally remembered, after 3 reps to put on my lifting shoes. As I was finishing my front squats I was feeling insufficient. I may need to reconsider how spread my doses particularly if I am going to lift late at night. For example I should take 2.5 mg HC right before lifting. However I would have to reduce an earlier dose so this would take some planning. Since I don't lift every day maybe I'll just take an extra 2.5 before my workout and maintain my normal dosing schedule.

Wednesday 6/6/12

HC: 15-5-2.5-2.5

Row 500m x 4

2:12 (151)
2:18 (132)
2:21 (116)
2:14 (147)


Tonight I split my evening dose of HC and that seemed to work well. Let's see how it effects my sleep. I should be tired enough from the last 4 days to get a good nights sleep despite the late dosing.

Friday 6/8/12

HC: 15-5-2.5-2.5
170 lbs. in the a.m.

Ok I made up the following workout to take advantage of my sandbag and to create a short met-con. This might be a little hard to describe. In my back yard I have a pool. The patio for the pool is 9 inches higher than the other half of the patio. There is a fence around the pool so when I stand on one side of the fence I am 9 inches lower than when I stand on the other side of the fence. On the lower side the fence fence is 57 inches high which comes to the top of my chest. So the workout is to lift a sandbag and throw/drop it on the other side of the fence go through the gate and repeat for rounds (2 lifts).

47 lbs. Sandbag Fence Toss
5 minutes
15 rounds
