Open 2017 is over. This marks a year with Ian Houghton as coach. Ian signed up for two years coaching me towards getting in shape for Open 2018 and the masters 40-44 competition. One year ago I could barely walk. Now I run. I can squat without sleeping on pain killers. Time to start practicing the sport of fitness again. I’ve increased my base capacity a lot this year a lot thanks to 18 weeks of biking/rowing which almost killed us who got through it. There have been a lot of burpees and if looking at the Open results I did best in 17.1. Previously this should have been my absolutely worst workout of them all and the Snatch workout my best.
With that in mind I just signed up for the Open to feel the workouts again. In 17.4 I got a bit sad though when my shoulders gave in already on the wall balls. Even though my work capacity is better my local muscle endurance now totally suck After 30 wall balls I felt that I was already fatigued. That workout made me outline some progression goals. Getting back up to 23 strict HSPU in a few months and up to 30 in the end of October is the goal. From 25 CTB to 40. From 13 to 20 Muscle-ups and so forth. I think it can be done.
I am in good company with my mates at Måndagsklubben. Common purpose and goal.
On Monday it begins!
