Tuesday and Wednesday workouts

Wednesday

Track day = tempo running

Warm Up
Track drills
Hip Mobility

8 x 150 = these felt rather slow - but that's okay. I think I've been running these too fast lately and that is not the idea. The CNS must be left in-tact, and if I sprint them too fast, my CNS reserves become depleted. Need to remember to RELAX and not push the tempo runs!

Tuesday night = Kettlebell Presses and Snatches

I am only using my left arm. Right elbow needs more rest. That whole elbow tendinitis garbage:(

Clean and Press

24kg 3 reps x 3 sets
28kg 1 reps x 3 sets
32 kg 1 reps x 3 sets

Snatches

24kg 10 reps x 6 sets = 60 reps

I am feeling like I've lost some muslce in my upper body. Perhaps I could be the next poster child for the Somalian marathon team :)

Take it slow bro, the elbow will come along. Hang in there and keep smiling!

Thanks Tom. Elbow has been giving me challenges for quite some time. I keep abusing it, so it needs to rest :)
