Postmortem Hate Training Log

10:26-11-25 AM: walk 4 miles, dehydrated at 3

11:40 AM: 3 eggs scrambled with sausage, spinach, tomato and cheese, 2 tablespoons probiotic vinegar, 3 table spoons nutritional yeast, 1 tablespoon coconut shreds

1:40-2:20 PM: picked green beans from garden

2:30- 2:53 PM: stump cleaving…

250 1.5 beat one-handed axe strokes with lateral and shift movement

50 1 beat, two-handed axe strokes without movement

104 1 beat machete strokes with movement, lateral shift and triangular

Despite being pre-fatigued my machete strokes all sunk deeper than the axe-strokes, which I attribute to the incurved butt of the hilt which gives purchase for flexor-contraction on impact

7 axe strokes, 4 with the left hand and 3 with the right, were turned due to poor wrist stability

Median penetration was 2 inches into fresh cut pine, maximum 2.5 with the axe and 3 with the machete.

3:14-45 PM: walk 2 miles, dehydrate at 1.5

5:00 PM: ¼ cup pumpkin seeds

6:00-6: 1 mile walk

6:30-9:30 PM: 10 shots of tequila, 2 limes, salt, water

10-10:30 PM: 1 mile walk

JL: "6:30-9:30 PM: 10 shots of tequila"

Is this logged under "Recovery" ?

Ahh, would you believe I thought it was whey?

Besides the people pouring it were very pleasant company.

I was lucky I didn't end up in a ditch as drunk as I got doing this on an empty stomach and staggering home on the berm of that country highway.

It really slowed my training down today, so I think club soda should replace half of those shots next time.
