Walking 10.0 incline 3.2 mph
Leida, I started practicing against a wall at first. It took me a few days to get adjusted to being upside down (read: headaches) but that subsided, unless I do it in the morning! Now I can hold my handstands for a good 60 seconds or so. Usually my wrists are the first to give out, so I'm gonna try them on some dumbbells instead. I still use the wall but can tap away from it for 15-25 seconds now. It's so fun to progress!!
Where did you hear the OH was sensitive? Interesting... Regardless of whether I do it though, I still wake up starving. It's a hunger I don't get in the middle of the day. It's like a deep, burning and nagging feeling that I REALLY cannot shake no matter how much I try to ignore it. It's inconvenient when I want to fast or don't want to cook or whatever in the morning. It's like, REALLY? Agaaaain?! I woke up in that condition this morning at 6am. I slept well, about 8 hours, and don't feel stressed or anything. I just don't get it and can't find any answers on it.
Should be "deload" this week, but am thinking maybe not... ;-) Oh -- and congrats on your BP weight! I don't even try with the BP!
I just don't have the agility or maybe the nerve to try a handstand :) But I think you have inspired me to give it a shot. We are playing today after school with my kiddo on the playground, and it has nice surface (not gravel, but awsome rubber mats), so I will give it a shot. I promissed her that mommy will try monkey bars with her, and she was super facinated by an older girl making a forward cartwheel, so that sounds like something we can try out together for fun.
As for the OHP being sensitive, that was a general consensus of the ladies on the StrongLifts 5x5 forum :) Everyone has troubles with it.
Saturday: OHP: 45, 55, 2x5 (@60), and 4x60 & Kettlbells
DOMS in the ham/glutes hit as I was going to bed, earlier than the last time. So, I had a spectacular falure on my Madcow on a SQT. Because I have never been trainig to failure on my programes, I did not experience a large muscule failure, it was kindda interesting. I did not just drop the bar on the last rep, I actually dropped on my bum to the floor, shaking and sweating & crawled from under the bar instead of getting up and walking from the front of the rack. Had to sit it out for a bit before I could unload the bar. It's annoying to fail on the lastrep, lol. Because of the muscular failure, I dud not push BP, failure on SQT is one thing, failure like that on BP... yakes. So, Madcow results on Sun:
Madcow (Sunday): SQT (max at 123 lbs, F on the 5th rep); BP: (max of 3x3 @82 lbs); BBR (max of 86 lbs); Inverted Rows, deltoid raises 3x6 @ 17.5 lbs
I am not going to do a Turbo-Core spinning class tonight, going for a walk instead while my kiddo is having her dancing class. Want to recover before tomorrow's DL session. Well, at least the SQTs will be light.
Walked the dog 2 miles
4.7 mile run in strong,blustery winds (hurricane Katia on the way)
I start with swimming today...
I've been doing some stuff in my backyard on the patio, like jumping rope. Today I put an old outdoor rug on a small deck back there and did my kettlebell and freeweights there partially in the sun. Dang, sometimes I'm so clever I can't stand myself!
One of the best ways to get info is to look at the WOD thread in this forum. Lots of good ideas there.
Wendler 5/3/1 with 30 minute walk
He's 12. We swim 30 laps. Why is this unconventional because it is quality time and play time all in one.
