TRAINING/NUTRITION BLOG: 5/23-5/31/14

5/23
REST DAY

5/24
10 MINUTES ON THE C2 ROWER.

First time ever on it. I have heard good things about it, and I know it seems to train the hinge pretty well. I have some nasty soreness and swelling on one of my knees from doing some martial art thing weeks ago that probably messed it up. This seemed like a good alternative, since running was out of the question. It feels 100% better after getting to move it a bunch without weight on it. 

I have no frame of reference for what is good or not on the rower, but my times for 500 meters during the 10 minutes was 1:44. I set the resistance at maximum on and just started going. I figured 10 minutes was good for the first time on it.

I have no idea what that number means, and I am not going to look it up and compare myself to anyone on it.

20 minutes at Snap City Staircase: 

Repeated the following for rounds (got in 4 in the 20 minutes)
Sprint up, walk down.
Spiderman crawl up, walk down. 
Jump up, walk down

This was after a 22hr fast, so it definitely was my high-stress workout for the week.

830AM-
10 MINUTES ON THE C2 ROWER. EXPERIMENTING WITH KEEPING THE STROKE SPEED A CONSTANT 25RPM AND FULL RANGE ON THE MOVEMENT. FELT LIKE THIS HELPED TO REALLY UP THE MUSCULAR DEMAND ON IT.
5/31
REST DAY
NUTRITION: 
With this knee/IT band issue I've got going (which is improving since I narrowed the problem down) I've had to be very strict on nutrition, and I have been generally fasting until about 2pm everyday. I may have a little something after an earlier training session, but nothing substantial until later.
