I've been curious why there aren't ladies logs here or updated to the point of seeing them but here goes. If this is a boys club only, I'm sure I'll be sent back to the kitchen shortly. Wink

I've competed in one Highland games last fall here in Waukesha (I'm in Milwaukee) and two Highlander Games down in Texas. My first Highlander introduced me to the amazing Brittney Boswell. I could go on and on about her but you all know how wonderful she is and how she represents these games. She's tops. I've never kept a public training log but since I've committed to this season, I'm interested in feedback on how to tweak in season training. 

The last three months of training has been busy. I follow 531 on my press, squat, and deadlift. I am still on linear progression with my bench and cg bench. I snatch and clean and jerk 1-2x per week. I hit a globo 2x per week for arm accessory work and cardio (until the snow goes away and I can hit the prowler again.) I'm tweaking this week to back off on intensity and up lighter volume, throw a bit, and hit the oly lifts more. Next week I'll be out of town and will train as I can.

Yesterday was my first outing with some throws. I sped read Matt Vincent's THROWING-LAB and applied as much as I could. The stone set-ups felt much better. My light WFD was fine, just getting the feel of things here; and my only goal in the heavy was to not let it throw me and I felt good about that. All throws went into the snow which my 12 year old shagged for me, I owe him bacon for that.

I'll celebrate turning 46 at the Shamrock games and am hoping for a fun and healthy season. Thanks!

3/4/13
Press: 1x5@ 35kg, 37kg, 40+ (10) *my PR is 58kg on this
Bench: 3x3@63kg
Power Snatch: On the minute, 40kg. Light, light but wanted to get back to working on quickness in the second pull. *my PR on this is 60kg
Power Clean/Jerk: On the minute, 50kg. Again very light but wanted to work on speed in 2nd pull. *my PR on this is 75kg.

3/20

19 degrees and windy but today was my only day to throw. 

Good news: after reading some tips from 'Throwing Lab' my stone throw was further than my WFD.

Bad news: my stone throws were further than my WFD's.

Didn't keep total track but threw aboot:
10-12 stones
10 LWFD
3 HWFD
2 WOB

No bueno. We'll see what happens Saturday.

Deadlift: 

Up to 3x3@ 90, 95, 100. Fine, not a lot of gas in the tank.

Up to 8 singles at 65.

Trying to find some pop...not much there.

As explosive as a Manatee. Awesome.

2013 Shamrock Games

Sheaf: 1st timer, had lots of advice and help. Thanks to Cabertosser for the fork borrow and the solid coaching and introducing me to an excellent coach. Excited to work on this in the future. Cleared 11'. 

Caber: almost picked. Again, excited to just work on this

Braemar: 24'4" PR, good enough for first. Thanks to Matt Vincent's Throwing Lab for a few key cues.

Open: 26'4" PR, looking forward to improving.

Heavy Hammer: 47'9" on 3rd throw where I just tossed after the second turn. Much better. Don't like three turns.

HWFD: 26'11" PR big time. Very happy with this. Good jumping off point. Again, Throwing Lab kudo's for thinking "shoulders" and not "arms."

LWFD: 43'7" PR. Lots of room for improvement here. 

WOB: Cleared 13' on first try. 14' not today. So happy I got the 12' monkey off my back and had solid 13. 

All in all a much better day than expected. Special thanks to all competitors who were so helpful; Cabertosser and Jason Clevenger for coaching; my kid and partner for support; and the entire Shamrock games crew for putting on a great show. OH! Won very cool sword for 3rd place. Yeah.

Aloha.

Post comp, sinus thing from Finland finally got me. I suppose dust and competing Sat helped that along. Slept a lot but only able to get in a can of soup. Not enough food Sat and Sun.

3/25
Trying to eat anything and everything. If I could safely remove my head from my body, I'd be feeling great. Back'd off weights for today accordingly. Need food.

Squats:
3x3@85

Bench:
3x3@60

4/3

Early morning throwing/drills session with Brian Hare.  Beyond awesome.

Breaking down the mechanics of the throws and getting to a more efficient and powerful throw iz goood. Very excited to practice. 

We'll throw sheaf and hammer on Friday. I'm appreciative to Brian for starting his day early to work with me, he's a great coach.

The Southside crew is awesome. The first time I was there, Garth (one of the owners AND a pastor) was conducting a pre-marital counseling session in the lobby. It was very cool.

4/13 Rockford Backyard Games

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly...without the awesomeness of Clint.


The Good
Braemar (13#): 22'+ some
I'll take this in the cold. It was off my PR but I feel I did my best for today.

Open (8.something): 25.3
Again, ok. Off my PR but within range to keep working the throw.

The Bad
HWD: 14'
Yup. I scratched my first two throws and barely held on for this one. Completely off my game. Completely.

LWD: 38.4'
Yup. Again, could not find my rhythm. Felt like I had four feet and they were all over the place. It was very bizarre. Then I looked at the pictures my awesome guy took. Even though I started low, I was as high as a Canadian teenager mid-throw. Crap.

Back to the drawing board.

The Ugly
HH: 42.9 
Again, no rhythm. Uck.

LH: 56.10
13' off my best. By this time I was at a loss on how to get on track.

The Recovery

WOB: 12'
Missed 13 twice and then ran to Arby's for a potty break. (Ya, I read TMI on your guys' log all the time;)

I'll take this. My goal for this learning season is to get a minimum for each throw. After some consistency, raise the minimum. For WOB, 12' is my minimum meaning no matter how crappy a day I'm having, I'll hit 12. 

Smiles
Sheaf: 18'
I had a very good miss at 20' and I'm extremely pleased aboot this event. I struggled at the Shamrock games and thanks to Jason and a few others, I was able to get down some key points and hit some good toss'. I brought home my own fork and sheaf and am excited to practice. 

Overall: exactly where I should be. Glimpses of promise, some struggles, and a better understanding of the events. 

Next up: Minnesota, Farmington. Home turf. Tongue

p.s. Thanks to Brian Hare for the mid-comp pep talk. Much appreciated.

Beautiful, sunny day!

HWD:
About 12 throws. Worked on feet staying down and staying low. Average throws around 20'. I'll take it after Saturday.

LWD:
About 15 throws, same as above. Finding a rhythm. All in 40's and one non repeatable at 49. Huh.

Open stone:
Just worked technique. No measurements.

Good day.

Jp
