Friday is working out to be a full day at least this week. I am not certain if I want to do the SSST on Thursday or Friday. It felt good today and it is what I did first in my workout sequence. Being that I had an open schedule today I was able to split my workout in to 3 different sessions. Also, the yoga was a restorative session so that is not taxing and in fact meant to be more relaxing and serve to open up the body.
Sercet Service Snatch Test (training)
Total Time: 10 minutes
Total Reps: 120
Heart Rate at end of workout: 155
Hands: Perfect :-)
Location: Stanford University Track
Time: 25 minutes
Distance: 400 meter repeats at 3 minute intervals (run 2 minutes or less, rest the difference for a total of 3 minutes/400)
I made it through 5 intervals
After the 5th Interval my left calf tightened up and I decided to shut it down. This is a life long process so better to back off and take care of the muscle rather than push it.
Home Care, Massage using deep long strokes with arnica, ice, foam roller, jacuzzi, more massage, more ice.
All sitting or lying down, nothing on my feet as I do not want to aggravate the calf. Here I hold the poses for an extended length of time, up to 5 minutes or so. This allows my mind and body to completely relax into the pose and open up. This is helping me recover and prepping me to perform.
As for the rest of the weekend plan, we will have to see what it holds, my calf that is
