I am posting a little earlier on my thoughts this week about training. I have been hitting the gyms 3-4 hours a day. But Friday I wasn’t feeling to well. And that night I started throwing up. Normally we would be going on a hike right now. I feel a better this morning (I must have ate something) but at the same time maybe my body is telling me to slow down? So I’m going to give it and extra day to recover. I ALWAYS try to avoid the couch on the weekends but this weekend it might win. I with the extra day off I’m worried to get back into it on Monday but I will push through it! #spartantraining#spartan#spartanrace#recovery#break#restup#sick#struggle#struggleisreal#keepgoing#difficulties#zumba#hiphop#cardio
I tell you guys all the time we have amazing teammates and it’s definitely not an exaggeration! Arthur Ralph Stone handmade this indestructible beast for the team to train with and I know the coaches have some very fun plans already! We put to work this morning and it definitely did not disappoint! Every Spartan SGX session gives teammates the option to pick what level gives them the most challenge and we can modify any exercise needed! #roanokeva#spartansgxcoach#getoutside#ocr#sledpush#spartantraining#spartantrifecta
First day of focused training for this race season. I’m pumped to have my 2019 calendar filled with Spartan Races for my second Trifecta, a Rugged Maniac, half marathon and a series of varied-length road and trail races. The goal is to train hard and consistently, and to cut fat and build lean muscle mass for greater strength, speed and agility, while remaining injury free.
Cardio gets a bad rep sometimes. In which case I say spice it up!
Being a OCR athlete has taught me that cardio is not relegated to running alone. Your heart rate spikes up tremendously while climbing over walls, carrying heavy objects, and jumping over things.
So here is a quick circuit utilizing all 3 of the components I just mentioned that you can do in between your running.
Pre-2019 Megan: It’s a snowstorm! I don’t need to run today.....
2019 Megan: It’s a snowstorm! I have a 70 minute run on the schedule. Perfect Greek Peak training!
Howling winds and wicked high snow drifts along Lake Michigan wasn’t about to stop me. The wind hurt, the trails were nonexistent, and Milwaukee doesn’t know how to plow their roads, but this run wasn’t about maintaining my speed, it was about continuing to endure the worst of the worst conditions. #SnowDaySaturday
Whether it’s a nice little flow, a quick killer AMRAP, fancy boutique class, jabbing at some bags, or just a long walk....make sure you move! 🤸🏽♀️
As @spartan said, “Weekends are great for mental rest, but our body wants more movement!”
When you stop thinking of movement as “work” and you realize it’s just a necessary part of everyday life like going to the bathroom, and drinking water.... then it becomes much easier to digest as a new “habit”, just like brushing your teeth! 💪🏼
🚫Stop complicating it.
🚫Stop punishing yourself.
🚫Stop trying to “undo bad days”.
🚫Stop with the drama.
What type of movement are you doing today? Comment below! ⬇️
ma barátkoztam a Bosu labdával, hétfőtől indul a bokaerősítő project 😄 reggel semmi kedvem nem volt az edzéshez, megmondom őszintén, de a @fittegylet edzéstervem nyilván elég motiváció volt, durva, hogy már csak 1 edzés maradt 🙀 mivel deload hét van és holnap már nem fogom túltolni magam, gondoltam megosztom veletek az eredményeimet 😊 8 hetes volt a terv, heti 3 edzés + kb másfél hét szünet a közepén, amikor be volt állva a hátam 😃 guggolás: 57.5 kg ➡️ 66 kg, tempó guggolás: 50 kg ➡️ 59 kg, fekvenyomás: 35 kg ➡️ 42 kg, szűken nyomás: 30 kg ➡️ 33 kg, elemelés: 65 kg ➡️ 71.5 kg 🎉 az elején 1 ismétléssel néztem, a végén pedig kisebb súly-több ismétléssel, amiből a táblázat okosan kiszámolta a maxom 😁 nyilván ha nincs a szünet és nem kell túlteljesítenem magam, hogy visszatérjek a normál állapotomhoz, a számok is magasabbak, de ez most így alakult, ettől függetlenül büszke vagyok magamra ☺️
I am already seeing gains as a result of our 2019 Chin ups in 2019 challenge. I can now do 6 strict Chin ups in a row (although the last one was clearly a struggle)
Decided to throw back to when I thought I could do 10 - man my form is whack. I'm looking forward to building up to 10 but for now I am working on correct form and recruiting the right muscles.
I am currently at 309/2019 so I am looking forward to seeing the progression I make as the year unfolds 💪🏽
Check that you are Pulling ankle under hip using hamstring in your practice.
❌Lifting knee, using hip flexor, ankle in front of hip, not recovering running pose, will lead to reaching lifted foot as action in run.
✅Pulling ankle under hip, using hamstring to recover running pose to Fall-Pull and run.
