WOD 20140911

Rest day

After yesterdays light feeling weightlifting day (first one of the new training programme) I felt like today I’d be doing some sort of MetCon. The whole day at the work ended up being so busy, though, that my usual lunch -break just didn’t have a chance. The series of excuses then continued until I managed to walk the dog the 5 Km and after that realised that this actually is my rest day. For real.

So the whole day my brain has been nagging me about stuff I shouldn’t even do today. The schedule for training is (3+1) + (2+1), and I should learn to stick with it, regardless if my weightlifting sessions at the moment are ¬†lighter than they used to be. Plus that I don’t get the usual WOD -rush now since the weightlifting days are strictly reserved for lifting.

For the schedule, the 3 first days should be like this:¬†Weightlifting on Mondays and Wednesdays, Metcon/Crossfit on Tuesdays. Then Thursday is off. Friday is for the 3rd weightlifting session and on Saturdays I’m planning to have a longer Metcon, hopefully some benchmark WOD, being named or hero. For the MetCons I’m planning to use mainly bodyweight movements and perhaps some KB or medicin ball, at least now in the beginning of the training season so that I won’t overload myself again.
