Your Workout Today

Recommended Posts

*sigh*

My workout today started with a new exercise: box jumps.  After the 2nd set of box jumps, I felt sharp, acute pain in my lower back.  I struggled through the rest of it before eventually giving up.

The real bummer is that I've lost about 18-20lbs over the past 6-8 weeks (can't remember how long since I officially started) and I only have about 8lbs 'til I get down to my ideal weight.  Hopefully I won't be out too long.  Doc said with heat/ice and ibuprofen, I should feel improvement in a few days.

Regular Russian (kettle bell swing) with two hands simply taken all the way to vertical, kind of a two handed snatch.  Just keep going up with a regular swing and end up in a vertical body line, inside of tricep area even with your ears.

I don't want to get beat up for this, verbally or physically, but I have started doing yoga.  Diamond Dallas Page's yoga: Yoga for Regular Guys.  I'm two days in and my back feels better already.  We'll see how this journey goes.

Then on the top of every 3rd minute complete the following: (21min, 7 rds) The faster you finish the more rest you get!

15 American swings

13 Kickouts (up&downs; w/out going up)

Last week did the heart half marathon.  Tuesday did 8.58 in 1:30.  Felt really good.  Thursday did 2.49 in 28.  I was planning 4 but ran out of time and my right foot started hurting and knew I had the half Sunday morning.  Sunday, did the 13.1 in 2:25.  Finished in the bottom 20 out of 165 in my division.  But I'm a novice runner and fat so what can you expect??  Took Monday off, did 4.02 tonight in 45.  The heat really got to me.  Not used to it and didn't bring my water belt.  Felt blah.

Rest of this week.  I've got an 8, 5, and 12.  Might switch out the 5 for some cycling.  I miss running when it is chilly out.  This stupid training is stealing my golf time.  I have the time but not the legs after the big runs.  Really looking foward to being done with the marathon.  The training is hard, not all that much fun, and long.  Come on May 3rd!!!!

Back, bis, and swam as many laps as I could handle in 30 min. I got across the pool 3 times before being completely winded, progress from Tuesday when I only made it back and forth!

Swimming is going to get me in shape, forget the treadmill, that's for lightweights!

I am skipping my workout today.  Legs are shot.  Over 18" of new snow in the last two days.  More tonight.  I just can't get the steam to go do a bunch of stuff for time.  My first missed workout in a LONG time.  Try to make it up this weekend.  I am jealous of all those playing golf.

The Eastern part of the state got some last week.  And I guess Sun Valley has had their ski season extended.  I got my first nine holes in yesterday.

5.02 hilly miles, 47:10.

Bah.
Calf - not cardio or anything else - made this one a chore. It's not sore or in pain - that's the silver lining - it's simply exhausted or tired or overworked or something. It feels better than Monday but going up hills I had no real "push off" power. It felt weak and a bit "dull" - kind of like a big bruise but without the "tender to the touch" part of a bruise.
I stopped four times (they're pretty obvious in Garmin Connect) briefly. The calf would feel "rested" for a few steps and then the dull blah-ness would set in again.
So again, I no longer really think I'm "injured" - the muscle just feels like perhaps a gentle strain or something, like it's just a little tired. No pain, even if I rub it vigorously. I'll continue to ice and elevate. Will use the foam roller (Trigger Point one) too.
I'm not proud of this effort today, but I'll take it, if you know what I mean. It's not a flat loop (the one side is - I'm glad I took the tougher half to start).
Happy Birthday to me. I'm 34 today and I believe I'm slimmer than I was when I was 26, 27.
Here's a picture I took before I ran around the lake:

Have you considered taking a week off?  I haven't followed this thread much to know if there is a specific goal you are working towards that may be derailed, but it sounds like it would do the muscle some good.  Also, if you have the time, some physical therapy (ultrasound) would probably do you some good.

Congrats on 34 and slim(mer).  I turn 34 in a few weeks and will be proud to be at least in as good physical condition (or maybe even better) as I was in my playing days.  Of course, I can't say the same for my own durability.

As for myself, I took two days completely off after my lower back strain.  After one day of nothing but light stretching and strengthening exercises, I did some core work yesterday and got on the elliptical machine for 15 minutes.  I plan on more of that today, and hopefully I can lift/run again by Monday.

No. It's nowhere near that bad. It improved with four days of slightly lighter work last week.

Not sure if it's related to your injury but right before I tore my meniscus I was having calf problems.  I don't know if running through the calf problem caused my leg to be imbalanced, but it was within the same week I tore the outer meniscus so just be careful.

I appreciate the concern, but I'm not running through pain or anything. It just felt weaker for a little while, and only on some good sized hills. I still managed a pretty hilly run at 9:30 miles or so.

I do appreciate the concern. I'm trying to over-do writing about it though as part of the ways in which I will NOT over-do working it, because I do NOT want an actual injury. I'd rather do that than not write about it and try to "tough it out" or something silly like that. That's how people DO get injured, so I'm trying to exaggerate things the opposite direction. :)

What a great course to run. I love that picture and in the end, 5 is 5. I just got off the bike. Running has been spotty and it's getting hot so I switched over to 2 wheels.

Happy belated Bday Erik! Age is a great motivator for me. 39 is when I started working out for real. Better at 40,41 and soon 42 than I was at 30. Good for you.

Bull, glad to hear you season has started. I am trying to be positive and hope for the best up here. Worse comes to worse, i am driving to a range in the next 10 days.

Ran out of time do to a real one, so I made up a quick one. 15 to 20 min total time. Set the clock for 8 minutes and just did dbl clean to push press to front squat for 15 reps, then did 5 r+l TGU with a 44. Then I did as many chin ups as I could while holding my legs in an L. When I couldn't do another one, I dropped down and did L sits on the floor for as long as I could hold. 5 rounds of that. Last 5 minutes I just did right handed swings, then 2 handed swings, then left handed swings with a 44. Hopefully back to normal schedule next week.

    • I know of only a few instances where players signed an incorrect score card and my gut is the vast majority of those instances were simple errors and not intentional cheating BUT these are "Pros" and they need to be held to a high standard.  If several thousands of dollars, or millions, is at stake they need to be the professionals they are and take care.  I hate it when it happens but I'll say I agree with keeping the DQ for incorrect score card submitted. AND, since I am not in favor of bifurcation on other parts of the game I'll also hold myself and other amateurs to the same standard. Oh, and I do not year Jordan complaining about the rule.  In fact he said "Rules are Rules and I take full responsibility".  Also, see Scheffler's comments near the end of the attached.  I think this debate is more about fans & the media complaining and not so much about the Professionals complaining. Following Jordan Spieth DQ, debate rages over incorrect-scorecard rule Spieth was disqualified after signing an incorrect scorecard following Round 2.      
    • A few more issues with getting rid of validating scores, and PGA Tour players doing their own scores.  1) The PGA Tour does not run all the tournaments. Example, the Masters is run by Augusta National, the PGA Championship is run by PGA of America, The US Open is run by the USGA, and The Open is run by the R&A. How do you handle these situations? What if the US Open and The Open do not want to use electronic scoring? Do you want golfers to bounce between having to keep track of their scores or not?  2) What if you are on a course where it would be difficult to have score keepers on every hole?  3) What about the Champions tour, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA Latin America, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour China? There are other organizations under the umbrella of the PGA Tour, that use the same rules, that probably can't have the resources to do scoring on every hole.  4) Will a score keeper be versed in the rules of golf to know how to score the correct penalty? What if they miss a penalty?  5) Would the players want to validate their scores after a round? I would.  6) People are like, well other sports have it. How many balls are in play in other sports? Football, one. Basketball, one. Baseball, one. In Golf, if you have a 120 golfer field. You could have over 8500 shots taken on the course. Are we sure the PGA Tour can accurately keep track of all those shots? What if a golfer takes 5 hacks to get out of the trees and the scorekeeper missed 3 of them?  It is much more reasonable to keep scoring as is.  I still believe the penalty should be DQ. You can't prove intent of cheating. Not signing for a correct score is worth the highest penalty.   
    • Okay, sure, but it almost all cases on the PGA Tour (and competitive golf generally), it's a fellow competitor for those reasons.
