    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.

    you're just lonely and want me posting in your journal again.

    i'm gonna give it a shot. if nothing else, it's getting me outside to do my thing and i'm enjoying it. Today was freakin awful. I need it to be awful every day because following a workout with 8 hours behind a desk doesnt really make me feel like i'm doing any real training..lol

    Last couple sessions..

    100 Lunges
    40yd sled push @ 205lbs x 6 (thought I would die)


    40yd sled drag @ 180lbs (backward pull with handles) x 2 then 470m run, 3 rounds. Ran out of time.


    I contacted Alex V at EHP about getting a good, designed program for the race. The next day I found out the race was canceled, along with most of the others on the list. They said they'll release a spring sechedule in November. So....I've been thinking about it and I think I'm just gonna work on it until spring instead of just for 60 days. The thought of training for several months for a 45 minute "fun" event seems kinda dumb, but I gotta have something to keep me interested. Gonna see what kind of program we can come up with and soldier on.

    Crap..just realized I forgot to do my lunges today. Might try to get them in this evening.

    This morning, did 80 sit-ups, 40 push-ups (about all my shoulder can handle), and 6 x 40yd (240yd total) prowler push @205lbs.

    it is UNbelievable how bad a prowler can make you feel.

    100 walking lunge with hands on head. 400m x 4 intervals with 2min rest.

    I HATE lunges. No matter how often I do them they make my butt so sore it hurts just to roll over in bed at night.

    8 x 40yd backward sled drag @ 180lbs
    40 pushups
    Installed new brakes on my truck. Also a sweaty event. Plus a lot of cussing.

    Setting up my initial assessments soon with Alex V. Looking forward to seeing what he has in store.

    6 x 40yd prowler push @205lbs
    3 x 12 push-ups. Was gonna do another set or two but I almost vomited after the prowler so I called it quits.

    Just trying to keep active until I get the revised program going. I feel good though. My wind is coming back pretty quickly.

    Went to the Ortho last week. Diagnosis is tendonitis and a script for PT. Oddly enough, knowing that it isn't torn was led to less pain. It's 90% mental I guess.

    Yep. I'm looking forward to it. I sent him what I had written up (which I'm not completely doing yet until he does his thing) and info about the race, and he's gonna adjust it. He could re-write the whole thing if he wants. Maybe it wasn't too bad of programming on my part..lol. I think he's gonna get me going with something for now through early winter, then focus on the conditioning and movements more directly in late winter. I just told him I need to get that exhaustion in a few times a week to keep the anxiety at bay. I also hit up the nutritionist guy but haven't heard back yet. I really don't know how to properly eat around my training and if I'm doing this full steam I gotta make sure I'm fueling and recovering properly. I'm just gonna wait on pursuing the nutrition part again until I get the final training plan though.

    Nice to see the posts going through properly. I messaged Chris to find out what was up because this happened to me once before. He said it appeared to be affecting everyone.

    Today was..

    120yd wheelbarrow push (150lb load) followed by 400m run. Went through it all four times.

    The wheelbarrow was really tough today. The race features a wheelbarrow-like device with a flat tire. Now that it's colder in the morning my wheelbarrow tire is 3/4 of the way flat under load..lol. It takes constant effort to keep it moving, and here and there I'd have to ram it with my hip to get it going again. Running endurance is getting better. I probably could have scraped out 6 rounds this morning but I only planned for 4 and didn't have time to continue. I'll probably do 150 lunges tomorrow followed by push-ups and dragging the sled with my harness on. I'm glad I only have a few neighbors. They're used to seeing me do weird stuff..lol

    So posts apparently still aren't displaying..

    Today..

    150 lunges, followed by 8 x 40yd prowler drag w/harness (180lbs), 3 sets of 12 push-ups

    Pretty tough today. Felt good though. I actually got 6 sets of 25 on the lunges with 30-45 seconds of rest between sets. I've never done more than one set over 25 before. Very encouraging. 175 next week. Only gotta work my way up to 350 or so..lol Push-ups are still wearing me out. I gotta figure out something. I need to be able to get 50 consecutive.

    well apparently posts ARE displaying but my last one before today didn't show up. I'll re-post yesterday, but I have a feeling those will eventually get approved and show up in place and this journal will be a mess.

    Yesterday I did 4 x 120yd wheelbarrow push (150lbs/flat tire) mixed with 400m run x 4

    And Chubrock, it's Alex setting it up. Not sure what he has in store for me. He's sending me some assessments to do. I sent him the plan I wrote up for myself and he seems to think it's fairly adequate. I think he's gonna slip some barbell back in there, which is fine. I'm sure I need it and I have plenty of time. I think we're gonna do a month with him getting me going, then I'll work the program through winter and start focusing on the skills more as it gets closer to race time.

    I also filled out a form for diet help with them. I really don't know much about eating around my training and I know with increased activity and being 35 I'll need to fix that.

    EDIT: NVM it's been corrected.

    Good to see you working with Alex. I'm sure you'll have great success with him!
