So I obviously haven’t been able to update the past two weeks with the site being updated and all, but training quality has fallen off a bit lately. Bad weather finally hit in Illinois and now its pretty much cold and rainy every day, which has taken its toll on all of my speed workouts. When the weather has been somewhat acceptable, I’ve felt really fast and powerful, but that hasn’t been the case lately.
Today I tested 40 YD, but it was raining outside and the path I was running on was soaked, as well as cold. I would have wanted to move this test back a day, but tomorrow I have a 9-4 band rehearsal so I really don’t see the point in testing after that. I was also running up a slight hill for the first 15m. Anyway, I ran two 4.9x’s(stopwatch only got nearest tenth) today. I was really frustrated, but considering the weather and that neither were particularly good reps I’m not too mad. I skipped lifting and vertical tests because I felt like crap afterword.
Also, I’ve really dived into tricking the past few weeks. I’ve only learned a massive two tricks, but its been a really fun addition to my training to this point.
Glad to be back on the forums.
