6/21-6/23 Went camping and hiking in the Linville Gorge in the NC Mountains. Amazing trip amidst crazy wind/lighting storms Friday night. Tough hiking, as we ended up at about 10 total miles and 7200' in elevation change over Saturday and Sunday

6/25 Lift

Cambered Bar Box Squat w/ asc chain
- 5x2 w/ 350 bar weight, 2 sets at 2 chains, 2 sets at 3 chains (right at 0.4m/s), 1 set w/ 4 chains (mid 0.3's m/s)

Cambered Bar Suspended GM's w/ front pulling band
- 4x8 140-200 in 20lb jumps w/ mini bands pulling
- band setup didn't give a ton. And did these GMs with a little more leg "squat" to mimic WOB

SSB Split Squats (Hatfield style)
-4x8 working up, last set 210 bar weight

Belt Squat and Leg Extension - 2x20 w/ BFR

Later...Throws...
HWFD x like a bajillion. Got in a mood. Tried to throw X distance. Got mad it didn't go that far so kept trying. Ugh.

Well...let's play catchup again. Body has been feeling pretty beat up lately, so training has been a little sparse. Still lifting 3ish days per week and throwing 3ish days per week.

July 4th Week spent some time down at the fiancé's family's place in Bama, so only training there was wakeboarding and wakesurfing, and eating.

7/8
HWFD x6
LWFD x6

SSB Speed Squat 6x2 w/ light bands (I think around 200lbs bar weight)
Sumo Deads - up to 440x3, then 6x1 speed pulls at 265+ short light bands

7/9 
Lat Pulldowns 4x10
Shoulder Saver Speed Bench 6x3 w/ 135 and doubled minis
Cambered Bar Inverted Rows 4x10
Strict OHP 4x5 40-70kg

**Plans are to only throw just a little on Wednesday and deload the rest of the week. Going to try to see how I throw with some serious rest. Ive really never take an entire week down (and not doing that again this week obviously) but have back to back games and will probably fully deload the 2nd week to see how I feel.

SOOOOO I got sick. Yep, full blow fever for 5 days straight. So throwing at Grandfather Mtn with a fever only went so well...then it stuck with me and I completely deloaded and still am on antibiotics while writing this for another 3 days...Havent trained any, but here is the throwing:

7/13/19 Grandfather Mtn Highland Games (ps - did I mention I felt like complete shit?)

20lb Sheaf - 24' literally felt like I had zero explosiveness in my body today.
WOB - 13'
Caber - first stick was joke. 2nd wasnt that bad either, pulled out a W in this event
Open Stone - its a bigger one. couldnt keep it tucked to spin
HWFD - 33'? Not bad for being sick
LWFD - 66'  I think? 
22lb Hammer - 93'ish?
Overall - 4th. would have liked to be more competitive but as an afterthought with how bad I felt I actually didnt throw half bad

7/20/19 Chatham, IL Sweetcorn Festival
Braemar - 30'11, terrible. Just couldnt get a push
Open Stone - 41'6", jumped the finish on all of them. UGH
HWFD - 32'6", just crap here today. warmups felt promising but couldnt put crap together in the box
LWFD - 68'7" - same as HWFD
22lb Hammer - 94'10". Couldnt find the mega speed needed. 4th in this event
16lb Hammer - 119'1", 3rd here, snuck this one out there as I was pissed 1st 2 throws werent very good.
Caber - 85 degrees, 4th. Just coulnt find a handle on this decent "fake" caber. 
20b sheaf - 28' - snuck the 3rd attempt over after some smack talk
WOB - 13' on some misses (crap)
Overall - 5th, same story as Grandfather the week before. hard to tell if I shouldnt take the time off or if I can chalk up rough performances to fevers and antibiotics. Hopefully we can bring things together in a few weeks. A lot of work to do.

7/22/19 Re-Tooling Day 1

Practice #1
WOB x 6 throws - focus on reach back, no bar

HWFD
- Something like 32 throws through a bunch of drills. focus was long push in the back

Practice #2
LWFD x 18 throws - same focus as HWFD eaarlier

No awesome distances today, but hoping that spending some time and a lot of volume for the next month will really push some things in the right direction. Really tired of the slump

7/24/19

WOB x 8 water bottle drill

HWFD 
15 1-turns
15 2-turns

later...

LWFD 35 2-turns

Trying to Un-FFFFF my weights and trying what seemed to work a few years ago and that is volume. Right now it's not working, and there are an extreme amount of f-bombs and a loathing for the sport and feeling that I am wasting my time practicing.

Onto the next day I guess...

Avoid my log. It's about to get real sulky and depressing.
