Legs yesterday, running 3 miles this morning, throwing with my daughter this evening. Holy shit, I've been sore since Friday.

Ran three miles on Wednesday, spent all day yesterday running errands. Going to try and combine two workouts this afternoon and then throw with my daughter again tonight. Weight is all over the place, need to cut the booze and get back on my food plan. Too much fat, not enough vegetables.

Last throwing practice before comp on Saturday. Looking relatively good. Hitting over 55 on lwfd consistently, stones are hit or miss, hwfd sometimes good, if I remember speed I can get over 60 on hammer which clearly needs work.

Competed on Saturday. Generally a good day although sheaf was sub-par again, only got 18 feet, and hammer was just stupidly bad, 57 feet. I'm apparently moving in slow motion. But, competition prs on weights for distance, 40'2" on heavy weight (21 lbs) and 55'7" on light weight (14 lbs). I won weight over bar with 16 feet and turned the caber twice. Stone was okay, but lost my glide altogether. Threw 27'5" with a standing throw. Going to start working with my coach again to fix hammer and stone.

Okay. Two weeks since my comp and I'm getting back to a regular lifting and cardio schedule.

This week:
Monday: 3 mile run
Tuesday: Leg extensions, hamstring curls, back squats, Lat pull-downs, two other things I can't remember.
Wednesday: Bench, rows, face pulls, lat pressdowns, curl and press, triceps kick back, 30 minutes elliptical
Thursday: 30 minutes incline treadmill walk
Friday: shoulder complex, leg extensions, hamstring curls, upright rows, bicycle crunches

Okay, so this past week, got one workout in and then spent three days at a camp retreat for middle schoolers. Have spent all weekend recouping. It was actually kind of awesome living the outdoor active clean living (although eating crap) life for a few days. Gotta figure out how to make that a more normal thing in my every day life. Will probably have to wait until after cross country season when I actually have some time to myself. As if that actually ever happens . . .

Okay, so my prep for worlds has not been as I envisioned it. Coaching cross country is very draining and is hard on my schedule. I have five lbs to cut to make weight by November 1st, but I think that will be fine. But, really need to dial things a bit. I've been just doing bodybuilding joint maintenance stuff twice a week, a lot more cardio, and trying to throw semi-regularly. My throws are actually pretty good, just need to avoid getting elbow tendonitis which has been flaring up a bit.

My weight has been very steady at 158-160 for the past several weeks. After worlds, I think I'm going to just do some bb joint maintenance 2-3 times a week and just work on increasing my endurance and athleticism (ie, just move better, lighter).

Threw stones and sheaf today. Weird, no matter what, my braemar landed in the exact same spot every time at 25 feet despite adjusting all the things. But open was a bit further. Just need to condition. Sheaf was hitting the bar at 22 feet. Need to sort out my throw to include a little more lateral movement, its far too vertical. And then incline treadmill walking for 30 minutes.

Threw on Saturday and about killed my right elbow. brachialis spasm, but cleared up overnight. Did stones, wfd, and wob today. Doing all right. Really need to work on driving off my fee as much as possible. Decided to not worry about making weight for worlds. I originally wanted to compete against my age group, but got put in the lightweight division. I'm just not there and it would take a Herculean effort to lose 6 lbs in 2 weeks without a massive water cut and a lot more cardio. Thyroid meds are being adjusted and it will just take time.
