@Mattys specialised camber comp, locals are the pain at my trails! Thinking it’s a good idea to put stuff across the trails to stop people riding them at the minute, absolute idiots! Also apparently th.rash changes to ‘extra phys’ when you post

Did a full circuit of the main road that surrounds my town to my road and flat of about 4km in 24 minutes and 6 secs. I am quite chuffed as that is the longest I have run without having to stop/walk. The last several km became a bit of an issue due to both of my laces coming undone. But apart from that, I feel great and not even out of breath. It's almost as if I got a full set of lungs by the time I got to the 2km mark.

Yeah there’s the issues of trails you don’t know what’s around the next bend! I used to go wary few years back when I used to go out jogging and a few times caught teenagers tying string across walkways obviously you know for what reason when some poor jogger goes that way.

I know what you mean about the locals problem about living in the countryside lots of farmers and stuff like this happens regular happened yesterday when I was out cycling to doctors appointment ended up waiting 30min and being late!

Been doing Burpees more for the vPJFT.. My shoulder and wrist seem to be hurting a lot while doing them. Is it just my technique that's bad or do burpees just hurt?

As long as the cows aren't accompanied by calfs just barge past them. If they won't move give 'em a solid bash on the butt with a hefty stick.

Top tip: Cows don't kick backwards; they kick sideways. :)

‘When I was waiting I did question should I make a go for it when an opening provided an opportunity but of course I didn’t know cows don’t kick back and they were pretty lively and I didn’t want to get my shins kicked in!

TODAY
ankle has been ok, so said I’d run the 5km if I could started off alright not bad but started getting a strain right on the 2k mark so stopped for 500m and ran again managed it alright after but Deffo was a bit of strain instead of running into the shower I done some stretches for it and it actually eased that pain a good lot it would strain putting weight on it a week ago and has improved a good lot since, might chance the sprints Sunday will see going to rest it as much, managed in 30.20mins which for a rest and injured was pretty good I think, it’s a hassle having these setbacks but have to get over it,
70pushups during the day also and yesterday
it’s always my right foot too which is annoying I had issues with that foot being flatter then the left I think that’s why it’s playing up but can’t really do much ?

VPJFT+

5x
- 10 Pull Ups
- 12 Sweepers with a 20kg Sandbag*
- 30 Air Squats

3x
- 8 OH Press @35kg
- 1 Minute Plank
- 15 Lunges (per leg) @35kg


*New favourite core exercise! Definitely give them a go. You hold a bar or bag locked out above your head and do kind of side to side leg raises - each alternative rep touches each hand. Good for shoulder stability and the movement is directly applicable to Rope Climbs and Regains.

Aup lads this is probably not the right post for this but could any of you give your opinion on my training plan and what you think of it?


Monday -

Warm up, Bleep test, Press ups, Sit ups & pull ups all to the bleep (mimicking the rmfa) then a PJFT best effort.


Tuesday - Rest day


Wednesday -

Football training ( 30 mins physical 30 min ball work) light session.


Thursday -

Lower body circuit. (45 seconds on 15 seconds off)

Jumping squats, alternating lunges, dumbbell swings, left foot glute bridge, right foot glute bridge, side lunge, fast squats, calf raises, duck walks, 90* hold. 3 min rest. 2-3 rounds.


Friday - 8 miler < 8 min mile.


Saturday - rest


Sunday -

(AM) Fintan circuit

(PM) Upper body circuit

Pull ups, Push ups, Sit ups, Crunches, rkc Plank in a circuit fashion.


I also try and do pull ups press ups and sit ups low reps high volume and rest time sporadically through the week to get in total reputations. A lot to read there but I’d appreciate feed back, cheers.

Definitely think I've started hitting the top of that curve on the edge of overtraining. As anyone following this thread will see, I usually like to smash myself pretty hard and do big 2-3 hour epics and/or training 2 or 3 times per day.

However today I fully, unforgivably, wrapped about 10 mins into my session with a bit of a sudden mood/motivation swing which just never happens. Been having pretty poor sleep recently and my body just won't stop being hungry. Counting my calories I ate about 4000 yesterday, already on 2500 today and still feel hungry and want to eat the kitchen bare.

Fairly safe to assume I'm not pregnant o_O so now need to have a think on how to adjust the training plan. Currently got 2 sides of opinion from mates - the RM mate saying overtraining is almost impossible and I need to stop being weak minded, and the civvy PT mate telling me to take a full week off for recovery. I suspect for our goal the truth lies somewhere in between.

On a serious note though, this is ok if you’re training different body parts, I train twice a day myself. Three times is perhaps excessive and possibly counterproductive.

What I would say is conside the FITT principles: frequency, intensity, type and time. Play with these variables until you find something that works.

For example, running 8 miles in the morning, then doing an upper body circuit in the afternoon would be fine. However, running 8 miles in the morning and then attempting a heavy leg session in the afternoon may be too much!

Kept it up mate!

Best to listen to your body and adjust when needed so not to get injured.
