Notes: Today was a polar opposite day from yesterday. While yesterday anerobic lactic workout that lasted over 15 minutes, today was a major creatine/phosphate(ATP) day. On these days it is most important to stay mentally acute throughout the workout. Taking in calories during this 2.5 hour workout is a must. Amino acids to repair breaking down muscle and maybe some dextrose to replenish muscle glycogen is not out of the question and is supported. I had a bit of a breakthrough with my snatch. I was tightening my arms on the third pull which didn't allow the bar to get back into a catch position. When I keep my arms relaxed on the way back and then push into the bar hard during the catch, I am able to get great positioning. I think I am just going to run tomorrow and give my brain a break after these two difficult days of training.

Training: 8/28/2010

Workout:
"Filthy 50"
Time: 15:20

Notes: The bearpig and I threw down in an epic showdown this afternoon. I played the rabbit for the bearpig, while I felt the heat from his breath all through the workout until we got to the knees-to-elbow where I starting distancing myself from the bearpig. He finished strong though, going well below 21 minutes. The worst part of this workout was....everything! I am wondering what's worse, the 10k portion of a triathlon, or this workout. We'll see at the end of the month.

Training: 8/20/2010

Workout:

Notes: Need to work on my receiving position. The extension in the pulls is much better, but I am receiving the bar on my toes rather than in the heels. This forces me to have my weight forward and the bar way behind. There is no wonder I have shoulder problems.....

Notes: The swim went a bit better today. I am trying to build the engine more, hoping that when my form truly clicks, I will be ready to roll. As for the front squats, I have to learn how to better bring hips with me, and push the floor more vertically than in front. The 4 rounds was tasty, very tasty.
