AFTER 10 DAYS OF TRAVEL, I was looking forward to getting back into the routine. You know, the one that separates the wannabees...
... from the gottabees.
The Cowboy Strong stuff.
- push ups are easy to do
- pull ups if there is a local playground
- squats are weakly replaced with air squats
- and just plain for get doing the awesome nordics
I warmed up with some light jogging,
mixed with some side shuffles,
and jumping jacks.
The sled felt great, even with the legs still a little tender. Taking those big steps and pushing all the way through the ankle and foot was wonderful.
Shoulder presses were a little shaky towards the end.
I really feel when I skip the upper body stuff.
Squats. Sometimes, after a break, I'll drop down some lbs. Not today, and it was just fine.
Then, the nordics. I could feel the tension in my hammies. Did my 5 full reps, but something didn't feel rightw.
When I moved on to the box jump, and lowered myself to explode up...
... the right hammie was barking loud.
I wasn't sure, so I didn't even attempt the box.
The rest of the circuit was fine.
During a light, very light, spin this evening everything felt fine.
Still, it could have been a major set back...
... which is why I encourage all my direct competitors to skip the weights for months, then hit 'em hard...
... I need every advantage I can get.
I'm just kiddin',
be careful y'all.
if you do, take it easy the first few days...
... because we gottabee strong to Rip On RaceDay!
