feeling the swimming in my shoulder a bit. Not in a bad way I didn't notice it when swimming yesterday but I noticed a fatigue feeling in it when I was driving home from the pool. I can feel a difference in external rotation. feels like a fatigue maybe it is loosening up (FINALLY!)

"Fight Gone Bad" - Accidently left my book at the box but I think I scored a 205. will confirm and post tomorrow.
3 - 5 minute rounds with 1 minute rest between rounds

1 - Wallballs = 14lb ball @ 9 ft target
2 - Sumo Deadlight High pulls - 55lbs
3 - Box Jumps @ 18 inches
4 - Push Press @ 45 lbs
5 - Row 4 calories

the accuracy of wallballs killed me this time. My rep counter and I agreed that I missed at least half it not more than I actually made. If I hit the 9ft line and wasn't completely above we didn't count it. If i went above the 9 ft line but I didn't hit the board it didn't count. Just like in a fight it's not how many punches you throw its the ones that land that count. Need to work on wallballs. the sumo deadlift high pulls felt good even though that high pull is hard on the surgical shoulder. Box jumps felt weird I am just used to jumping higher so it felt weird to jump low. Made sure there was a full hip extension at the top of the box or the rep didn't count. push press - another fun shoulder exercise. rowing - at this point just saying less than a minute keep going!! I felt like i got a great workout doing this one even though my score wasn't great mostly because of the wallballs not counting.

bike - 30 minute road ride followed by 5 rounds of 2 minutes on 1 minutes off - Just felt great riding today. Like I was really moving the whole time.

Even more good news - I got my GARMIN forerunner 405 today. WHOO HOO!! I can start tracking distance, using my heart rate monitor. I got the bike speed cadence sensor so i need to hook that up. Im so excited!

i was really hungry today. not sure why.

  1. Good job Stella! Try to find a good "sports" chiropractor so he/she can align you and will feel much, much better! Also I'm doing YOGA at least 3 to 4 times a week and now I'm feeling better on my bike and at the pool. Just sharing...

  2. Hi MaryStella,

    Glad I found your blog. Welcome to the Team. I look forward to hearing about your training.


  3. Thanks 4 sharing Ariel - My chiropractor does Active Release therapy which has worked wonders for me. I used to do Jivamukti and Baron Baptiste Power yoga, also some Shiva Rea but it is hard to find the time. Your right it would be good for me.

    Thanks Dan - I look forward 2 learning from u!
