Keeping Moving

Woke up this morning a bit sore from yesterday's workout. By early afternoon I was feeling pretty good so I squeezed in a short session. Have lots of errands to run today, so no cooldown except for a hot shower!

Jerk: 2 x 20kg - 3 minutes @ 6 rpm

Snatch: 20kg - 3 minutes @ 16 rpm

My rack felt a bit improved today. I am bending my knees more and that's allowing my elbows to sink into my hips better. This is not a habit that I want to get too used to though. I know my knees should be locked. But it's going to take time. For now, I'll continue work it.

Snatches felt pretty good too. I performed the same number of reps today as yesterday in less time. I guess I have re-discovered density training all on my own. But then again, this is how I have been 'waving' my workouts all along.

That's it. Gotta run!!

Good work, and I am glad you seem to be moving beyond your back issues. Congratulations on your recent good news.

Thanks Charley.

My back issue is now on the back burner. As long as I don't abuse myself I should be ok. I've learned that when I try to push myself too far, too fast, that's when the injuries occur. So from now on, I'll push myself, but not at the expense of injury.

I'm now also trying to sleep as much as possible. Once August and the baby arrives, I can't even imagine what life (and training) will be like. It'll be a whole new world!
