Ugh the runs are feeling like mud. Super enjoyed the rows though.
Time for the new cycle. I am playing a little as we get started. I have really really enjoyed the Avalon training program this last week but the Masters group starts today. So, I am going to pound it a little up front. I know, I know … but there is no reason why I cannot use the warm up, mobility and a finisher here or there. Not double the work, just supporting the integrity of the work. Where strength crosses over I am working the same neurological aspect and that is a good thing :).
So, patience and observation. Today felt wonderful. After a long swim season and a decent rest, the Macebell 4 weeks combined with Nia Shanks BBA/ADD was a good maintenance & overall body opener and core stabilization as well as just some darn fun with new movements and tools. I will continue with the core movements of 360, Slams & 10-2s, the workouts can be fun finishers along the way or just a quick flush on an endurance day as well. Options are good!
Feeling a little more like my old new self. Everyday. Change.
