I can't believe this journal is still on page 1..lol. This forum is on life support. I dunno if I'm gonna update regularly again, but figured i'd at least toss something in here and there.
I bought a prowler a few weeks ago, along with a harness for pulling, and a set of handles to put on the straps for row style pulling. I also picked up a weight vest, although I haven't used it yet. Regular running is enough of a chore at the moment.
Been doing prowler push intervals. Weight has been up to probably 150lbs including the sled. Total yardage per session has been about 500 including pushing it from and to the place I store it. Today I pulled it for 240 yds total in 60yd intervals with a 470m run each time. That was a brutal 30 minutes. That thing will make a man of me in short order. Also been working on push-ups, 400m sprint intervals, 150lb wheelbarrow pushes up to about 500yds as well.
Shoulder is better but still hurts and kinda unstable. Based on the motions that cause pain I'm 99% sure I tore my rotator cuff. My knee is about 90% since I stopped the hill sprints. It got pretty inflamed after several sprint sessions. That might have had something to do with me wearing cleats because it gets that way slightly during softball season, but this was serious discomfort. It was super annoying. I also broke a knuckle on the rim of one of my drums..lol. That's been hurting for three weeks or so, but isn't a huge deal. It'll eventually feel better if I stop banging it on stuff. Muscle memory doesn't work very well when you play on three different kits every week..lol
I found an event to train for. http://fitathlonchallenge.com/ I'm shooting for Nashville in November. I'd really like to get in good enough shape to do the Competitor division. We shall see.
