03-07-10 Sunday Week 57

Let's take a moment of reflection for a thing of beauty; Asics Onitsuka Tigers. :::: sigh :::::


So, my coach for the 2010 training season, Luan Nguyen of Iron Tribe Fitness, was sending me the workout for today as I was arriving at the gym. Had no time to really mentally prepare -- which is something I should be able to handle. Not sure what it was about today that left me completely emotional.

Training Log
11:30AM
Front Squat
5 - 5 - 3 - 2 - 5 - 5
95 x 5
115 x 5
125 x 3
135 x 2
145 x 5
155 x 4

then ...

3 - 6 -9 -12 -9 -6 -3 rep rounds of:
Push Press 75 lbs
Ring Dips

Time -- 18:57

Had a moment of catharsis during the second set of 6 push press. It lasted through the whole set of ring dips. Lots of fear and frustration about and around my shoulder. Every time it crunches when I go overhead it freaks me the fuck out. Even that last set of front squats left me on my ass. I guess training is breaking through mental barriers as much as physical ones. Actually, now that I think about it - the mental training is the hard part. Physical is easy...just pick stuff up. Hard to believe but believing in yourself takes more balls.
