Just use a manpon, should negate the pain from the bar

Ikr, the coach is pretty on the ball, he's a fan of the conjugate method and throws in a bit of Outlaw Way in there as well, my type of gym really.

My box always starts off with strength or mobility movement, then moves into a WOD, followed sometimes by core. S'good.
...what does that even mean?!

Did the run. Took it easy at a slower pace but got through 3km at Manly Beach. Calves should be ok within a few days.
I've totally forgotten how difficult sand running is compared to on the pavement. Need to basically act like a gazelle the whole time and bounce around.

Giney, do you wear shoes while doing it?

Yeah, but it wasn't squishy beach sand, it was a trail. A little bit of give in it, but not as much as an actual beach.

Be careful not to anger your Achilles by doing too much of that suddenly. Keep your calves stretched/massaged/foam rollered

Yep, went a lot easier than I could have for that reason. I remember pushing myself too hard on the sand last time and needing more than a week to recover.
Any suggestions on particular shoes? I've got Kayanos for normal road running but looking for something light that doesn't absorb too much water. Not too keen on Vibrams though, I'd like at least a little bit of support.

tbh, I would have thought that you'd be better off using a pair of knockabout shoes, like volleys or something. Chances are they'll be shagged in pretty short order.

Went for a run after 2 weeks rest, kneeish leg component started moaning at me after about 2km.

I might have to go against everything I believe in and go see one of those medical professionals.

Just feets.

I have no useful advice I'm afraid. Personally, I'd be aiming for barefoot if I was going to do that regularly.

Anyway... Back to exercise....

Yesterdays jaunt:

Long run: 23.4km @ 6:00 min/km

http://app.strava.com/runs/12777816

Again, it was the hip flexors that got to me. Thinking about taking the week off squats and concentrate on getting that 32km long run done next Sunday.

Perhaps just do a 1x5 maintainence set of squats while you're training for the mara, instead of TM?

Don't worry about squats man. I read some stuff on the internet:

Quote:

Squats and dead lifts are extremely effective at building mass, but you probably only need to do them for a few months when you first begin lifting. Even then, you should be careful. Yes...they will put on muscle mass...but often times in the hips, butt, and upper thighs. You really don't want a lot of excess mass in these areas if you are looking for a pleasing physique.

You'd love this shit.

Quote:

A nice looking body? What a Novel concept!

Many guys at “muscle building” sites care more about raw numbers rather
than appearance. Total body weight & how much someone can lift in one of
the BIG exercises is what many guys focus on these days. This isn't
necessarily a bad thing, just don't take advice from these guys if you want to
look your best.

Go to any hardcore weight lifting forum...

The guys who command a lot of respect are, more times than not, the ones
who have a build like a professional wrestler. Even many of the fitness
experts on these massive sites have nothing close to an aesthetic
physique...but many of them are strong. Again...not bad if that is your
goal...but a terrible approach if you want to look sharp.

I believe a fit & muscular guy should have at least some ab definition.

If you don't have at least a little ab definition, then I won't take fitness advice
from you...end-of-story. Gaining muscle and gaining fat at the same time is
easy as hell. Strength will come along with the increased leverage that the fat
provides, but that is NOT impressive...at all.
