Back in the game.

This week I decided that it was time to get back to the gym and start training. Was feeling a bit down for some reason, I was afraid that my strength had gone away and general health wouldn’t be at the level as it was before. Then I remembered that I only have to try be a better me than I was yesterday – so every workout is a step forward.

I decided to really boost my metabolism on Monday so I did a Tabata workout. The feeling when you almost pass out but not quite is pretty intimidating at first but awesome afterwards. I felt pretty worn out after the workout, but happy never the less. I decided to do a recovery-walk in the evening and had a nice long walk with the dog.

Yesterday I had to work and decided to take the day off. Well not quite, I still managed to do a nice long walk with a good tempo with Linus (aka the dog). Luckily I didn’t break anything on Monday so yesterday was pretty DOMS-free day.

Today I decided to hit the gym and do a nice WOD.

Workout:

Warm-up

20 wall-balls (8kg)

Parallel workouts

1)Deadlift 12-10-8 reps (60-90-110 kg)

1)Ab-mat 20-20-20

30-60 second rest between sets

2)Pull-ups amrap x 3

2)Box jumps 10-8-6

30-60 second rest between sets

cool down and muscle maintenance, stretching

My workout IS NOT done by a professional, this felt like a nice workout so I decided to start out with this. It was a bit mixture what we had trained before, but it’s a very nice WOD to start the week.

Tomorrow I’ll do some cardio, Friday will be a rest day and weekend it’s going to be all about working hard.

Take it easy guys.

Apology.

Hey guys, I’m so sorry I haven’t been writing lately, to be honest, I haven’t had the motivation to workout lately. But good news: the misery is coming to an end and light at the end of the tunnel is finally close.

I broke my two toes in May and unfortunately the bones didn’t align correctly while they were healing and it has taken time to heal, but now I’m getting back! It seems that injuries are always a part of my life, but I’m determined not to quit – no sir. I will keep going on and hopefully be stronger and nail my results!

I’ve absolutely fallen in love. With my bike. Yes, Linda too, but my bike is awesome. I’ve been biking quite a lot recently, not being able to do Cross Training, I’ve been trying not to risk further injuries. Maybe the best feeling was the other day when I decided to do a little run and I biked a marathon. The feeling was awesome, all that hard work in the beginning of the year hadn’t gone to waste and I think I did good.

I will return with my CrossTraining exercises soon, have to get one tattoo first, but after that has healed, I will get back with the iron and hopefully for good this time.

Also other major change is coming. I’m going to start doing Paleo diet, I’m really excited and a bit afraid of it, but hoping to see great results. The thing that concerns me is how to get all the ingredients during winter and protein intake. But I’m sure I’ll find a way to make it work.
