Sleep: > 6.5 hours on 2 of 7 nights

Track sessions: 3 / 5

November 29 (Monday)

5 minute plank circuit plus bicycle crunches.

November 30

6 block starts. Working on getting arms going (and the legs to go with them) in the initial strides, as there is no power at the moment, more just stepping out of the blocks. 

2 * 2 * 20-20-20. Felt tired after the last, so I stopped the session.

December 1

Glutes know they have been working from block starts practice last night.

Tempo at Adcock. 8 * 100. Done with exercises as part of each rep rest (crunches, push ups, reverse crunches, squats), so each gets done twice in a set. 10 reps each exercise. Only the 1 set as I was feeling just a little off and lethargic.Body still adjusting to diet clean up.

December 2

No track.

4 * 25 kettlebell (8kg) swings, 15 push ups. Rest 1:15 between each exercise.

December 3

5 minute plank circuit plus bicycle crunches.

December 4

Training at Mingara.

6 * block starts. Still working on getting the arms going on the initial strides. Now if the legs would just join the part.

3 * 30m off roll in

120, 80 with full recovery. Pulled up halfway into the 80m as soon as I felt some pain in my left calf. Walked off the track and did warm down stretches.

Only once I fully cooled down did more discomfort start while I was walking. More on the upper part of the Achilles than the calf. The physio I had seen in the last year is booked out for the week so trying to find an alternative.

December 5

Rest and more rest. Achilles is still sore though not as bad as yesterday. Given the name of a physio and can get an appointment first thing Monday.
