    Im only gonna sprint twice a week. Sunday and wednesday will be my speed/accel/ lower weight day. Monday off therapy. Tuesday tempo. thursday off therapy. Friday med ball/upper weights. Sat tempo. repeat

    Im thinking about sticking with accels and speed only on my sprint days and once the meets start use them as spec end sessions. But we will see.

    Also gonna stay heavy on the weights for a while maybe feb. Not expecting much this season. Goal is to get healthy and be ready for canada next summer

    I just need to repeat what I did my third month and stay healthy and I feel confident things will click for me.... If you are racing I def would do some speed endurance work.

    my hill was only 20 meters. So I was doing between 10-20 reps.
    sleds was 10-15 reps 10-30 meters.

    Iíve been having achilles and other tendinopathies on and off for the last 10 years. I recently found out by accident that a four day fast (only consuming 200-300 calories per day consisting of fat and a bit of protein/BCAAs) got rid of achilles tendon pain that Iíd been struggling with for six weeks. Might be worth a try. After ten years of experimenting with every treatment imaginable, this is the first time Iíve seem drastic results in such a short period of time.

    It's crazy how things work - every since I updated my journal the foot has started to feel better.

    Inflammation is not necessary for survival, so it gets shut down when you’re in a severe caloric deficit. That’s one of the reasons why fasting is so beneficial for so many chronic conditions, most of which are linked to chronic inflammation. Moreover, human growth hormone increases massively during fasting, which may also assist with tendon healing.

    I ate things like eggs, fish oil, cheese, coconut cream, salmon, gelatin and BCAAs for a total of 200-300 calories per day.

    It’s also important to continue exercising while you’re fasting, as this will protect your muscles from being digested as fuel. I actually did five days of fasting followed by one day of normal eating followed by another four days of fasting. All the weight I lost over those ten days (about 3kg) was fat according to skin fold measurements I took everyday. I went from 13.6 to 9% bodyfat. After four days, the tendon pain was gone, though, and at that point I had only lost 1kg of fat. You do lose about 1.5-2kg of weight in the first two days, but that’s just glycogen and the water the glycogen draws into your muscles. You will gain this back once you start eating carbs again. The real fat loss starts after two days once your glycogen has been used up.
