Re: Mike's Mad Log


I set out to run 4 miles but it turned into a three mile run with a one mile power walk.....My knee was on fire at 2.5, so I called it quits because I do not want another injury.

[B][I][COLOR="Red"]Happy Independence Day!!!![/COLOR][/I][/B]


I rode along the San Antonio River this morning, and it was a great ride!!! I wish they would complete the trail because it was scenic and relaxing. I got a chance to see some of the missions (The Alamo especially) which I haven't been to since I was a kid. It did relieve some of the soreness from the past days....
Rode 12.01 miles in 1:01:12.

Front squats
10x 225#
5x 245#

I was feeling really good considering I had biked 12 miles but I proceeded to increase the weight. Hit a new PR of 295#!!! That was 10#s more than my previous back in February. I beleive that I have more in the tank but I'll save that for another day ;)

I felt pretty good doing these lifts but have to focus more on shoulders and pressing....I was only 10# under my 1RM and wasn't sure if I could even heave the load up.

Re: Mike's Mad Log

I began my 12 mile bike ride at The Alamo. Nice motivator and 76 degrees was an ideal temp this morning! The trails weren't too crowded and made for a great ride. Completed the ride in 1:04:27.

Back Squats
I felt that itch, so I added another 10#s and nailed it!!!! :highfive: New PR of 365#!!!! I was so stoked that I outdid my previous lift by 25#s. Hard work does pay off.....


3 Back squats 225#
6 Squat jumps

Re: Mike's Mad Log


I was so tired this morning that I didn't have the energy to go biking or running.....My little girl is sick, and my wife had a minor bout with vertigo, so we were all up pretty late. I still wanted to get some training in today. The following is what I came up with; I had to walk laps in the garage for the farmer carries.....

Re: Mike's Mad Log


With a continuous clock: 30 seconds max effort burpees to max effort rope singles. I completed 8 sets!!!:yikes:


Worked on my clean technique tonight. I spent 5 minutes on each weight:

75, 135, 165, 185 and 205

I can still feel that I'm pulling too much with my arms.....:shrug: Additionally, I am overthinking the movements. More practice will bring muscle memory just like when I was on active duty. I'll keep after it......

Re: Mike's Mad Log


Ran 3.2 miles in 28:49. My knee wasn't aching and it was a relatively flat course. I may have to do some more running....:rolleyes: All of these thunderstorms have flooded out the trails, so I won't be able to bike for a few days. I may do another agility class to tide me over.
