2015-12-21 training log

Mostly good today.

I like that weights are starting to go up, things are getting a little tougher, but still not too tough. The progression feels right so far.

My knees and other joints tho just were not feeling it today; had a few unsteady times due to my unhappy knee. But once things got warm and in the groove, it was better.

Oh, the calf raises. I opted to keep firming that up. It’s hard to do the 4×20 with 5-seconds pause between each rep — harder on your counting skills. 😉 Past couple weeks I crank the sets and reps but may not always get the pause in full. But today I really focused on following that strongly and geez! I can’t recall my calves ever feeling that way. It’s nuts! Furthermore, when I then rolled my knee sleeves down, it felt different — calf pump. Crazy stuff. Let’s hear it for pausing. Hopefully I won’t have serious DOMS tomorrow and Wednesday and be unable to walk. 😉
