I've shit my pants mid run and I've shit my pants while scrambling to get to the bathroom post run. Neither is enjoyable. Err on the side of caution.

I have before as well. In WI we actually had hills to run up, came back from the run and just got into shower fully clothed.

7/10/2014

LC 3'x3, 3' rest between pace 7. Not hard, but not easy. It's fucking hot.

30' run after @ 150bpm.

HRV looks like a roller coaster, but is going up,and rest HR is coming down. Funny what cutting some stims out of your daily routine can do. Today was an elevated amber reading, so I didn't do any extra work. Yesterday's run must have takin a greater toll than I thought.

Still working toward 73kg, weighed 173 this AM. The is 165, then cut to 161.

The lighter I get the better my rack gets, and the less my grip fatigues. Odd.

30' run to follow, last 10' 175+ BPM

Been experimenting with different equipment combos. I'm set on the belt I prefer but playing with different shoes and lacing patterns. Looking for the right combo of stability and comfort.

Let's see if we can't keep this consistent...

Today, I did and extra long warm up due to the cooler weather. Been working a lot on flexibility and finding rest during the movement.

Work set:

Long cycle

16kg/60/5'

I had a goal of maintaining 12pace the whole time, coach wants 100reps with the 16s this cycle. I think I could have done it today, that set should start to come next week.

40' run.

Felt good.

Nicely done BJ. That pace sucks at any weight. 100 reps ain't no joke!

Great coach, even better for you since you're a native speaker. I have nothing but good things to say about him as a coach and a person.

What event are you training for?
Not exactly a prompt reply... I have been training with Sergej since pretty much that post, for snatch only. I did 117 reps with 20 kg at the comp in March, then got injured in May (I think it was a stress fracture of the rib, the way I was lowering the bell at the time). Recovered now, aiming at 10 minutes with 24 kg.

I agree with you wholeheartedly, Rudnev is a very good coach and a person. Just talking with other GS people and watching their logs I get the impression Rudnev is the best coach there is. Doesn't push you unnecessarily and does when needed.

I am impressed with your results. C'mon, post a video sometime!

I'll get back to it. It's hard to keep up with multiple logs.

I'll do my best after the 1st of the year since I'll start training to compete with the 32s.

Quick update:

1/6/2014

LC

26kg/24reps/3' x 2 with 4' rest between. First one was really good, second one got rough. Over gripping the bell on the drop on the right hand. This has been an issue, but it's slowly getting better.

Now that I'm comfortable with the pronation, I'm focusing on implementing "body weight plain" as Denisov calls it.

ended with 30 jump squats @ 40kg, 30 dips, 60 dead lifts at 60kg

1/8/2015

LC

26kg/42/6'

Got a little rough toward the end, had the roll the bells through the shoulders on the last 4-5 reps. But, surprised myself a little. Cardio was good, grip a little weak on the right hand.
