Thank you. :)

Fatigue is here. Working hard to stay on the reverse diet this week, but failing a little bit. Weight is dropping. 146.1 today down from 148 Monday.

My dog has cancer. Large tumor in his chest. He is the best good boy. Not sure how long we have with him. Re check with the vet on Tuesday.

Weight is holding pretty steady at 146. I'm into my throwing training now so subbing in power cleans emom for one of my hiit days and counting throwing practice (typically 2-3 hours) as a sub for 30 minutes steady state cardio. Using my heart rate monitor to keep me honest there. Cardio is 3x15 hiit and 3x30 ss per week. Still doing 5 bodybuilding style workouts per week but subbing in squats and front squats for any leg pressing. I think the leg press and wall sits are what make my knees hurt.

Okay, got to figure out some things. I've got too much on my schedule and I'm starting to rebel. Need to figure out my training schedule with throwing. I think I might drop down to gym days only 3 days a week since I'm doing 2 throwing practices per week. Still got to get my cardio in, 3 x 30 minutes and 3 x 12 minutes HIIT per week. I am really not looking forward to making this transition.

So, combined legs and shoulders today. Did leg extensions and hamstring curls, and squats, and then shoulder presses, lateral raises and a super set of upright rows and reverse flys. I think with throwing practice being twice a week, switching to only 3-4 training days vs 5 and cuttting some of the extra exercises may be a good idea. Going to the mountains next week so will have to make some adjustments anyway.

45 minute riding lesson last night, it was still 95 degrees. Mostly jumping, but also focusing a lot on not only controlling the horse, but letting her control herself. Its starting to really come back together for me which is great.

Got up and ran a 5k with the boys at 730 am. "Ran" might be an exageration, but it was really fucking hot and I only walked a little bit. Finished in 39 minutes. Then 2 hours of throwing practice, WOB, caber, and sheaf. Was hitting the bar at 12.5 feet which is pretty good for having run 3 miles just before. May do one more practice on Saturday and then the games are a week from tomorrow.

Spent the week in the mountains, competed on Friday. Not a stellar day on the field for me, but a good day overall.

Throwing practice today. Worked on lifting my chest and using legs on release of lightweight. Got it up to 57 feet. Sheaf was okay, but my back is still sore from Friday. Wob with 21 was good, hit 15 feet.
