It has been a while since I’ve written about my training, mostly because I’ve been exhausted for the past two months. For the six weeks after I visited Kamloops I was busy getting back into weight lifting for the first time in months. It took me a while to see some results and they finally came in the form of fatigue. Therefore I was excited two weeks ago when Dr. B gave me an early Christmas present in the form of a new training program.
As is typical, my training typically alternate between easy lifting phases and moderate lifting phases. This new program falls into the easy category and I, as always, think this period will be akin to rest. But it never is. If you are training ten times a week, you cannot classify it as a rest period no matter how little weight lifting there is. To top it off, my throwing volume is at an all-time high in this program. At first, I this was due to long-distance miscommunication between us, but it wasn’t. And after reshuffling rest days due to Christmas last week I clocked in a new weekly throwing volume record: 325 full throws! While my current weight lifting is very easy, I actually feel more fatigued now because my CNS is worn down after all those throws. My muscles are not sore, but I just don’t quite react as quickly as I normally do. Luckily, these programs serve as a transition and it should not last much longer. I hope to be back to my normal training in the next few weeks and that will allow the hard work over the last two months to transfer into results.
