0940 - HIIT Rollers:
a. 4 min @ 115-118 rpm in 39x18
b. 8 x 20 sec efforts/10 sec easy
c. 12 min @ 110-112 rpm in 39x16
Yep, another later session. No worries, though (so long as it gets done!) Anyways, wasn't as jittery as I have been lately (a good thing). Tasting blood from the end of my 4th effort on, though (gets quite sickly after a while). All efforts today were at 50-55 km/hr pace; I think I am finding some rhythm here (although I should be going as fast as possible for EACH effort and NOT pacing myself...)
1130 - Stretch 27 min.
Sleep - Time and Quality: ~2245-0824 (waking at 0114, 0315, 0700, and 0800), so ~10 hours sleep. AGAIN! What is up with that?!
Mental Alertness/Focus: Yep, been there since I got up. Been slogging away at market research for my business plan. Will be putting the finishing touches to it tonight and early tomorrow morning...
Energy: Good. Got the jitters at ~1545, though. Feel like I should be running around like Hammy on a caffeinated energy drink!
Motivation: Good; hanging in there.
Mood/Aggression: Got random aggression ~1600; still some lingering.
Libido: Not yet...
Endurance: Yeah, ok.
Quality of Training: Good. Getting more consistent with my efforts when HIIT is done on the rollers; not "slowing" after the first 2 sprints.
Pump and Vascularity: Leg pump after rollers. Vascularity was high after the rollers for about an hour or so. Vascularity in my hands has continued to be odd; my veins are constantly dilated, especially in my right hand (and they are still painful to touch...)
Muscle Hardess/Density: Same as usual.
Body Composition and Look: Still leaning up. I'm actually surprised that I didn't GAIN any BF last week, given the erratic eating patterns...
Overall Sense of Feeling: A few things are still sorting themselves out...Other things are starting to go really well...Some things I don't even want to think about...

What are HIIT rollers? Is that like running sprint intervals on the treadmill or something?
0430 - 5.5km Run:
Cold...Cold...Cold...I didn't want to go out, to be honest (I know; quickly get THAT thought out of your head!), but I was so READY for it...Strides were small, cadence fast. First km was done in 4.3 minutes, slowing to 4.5 min/km by the second km. I managed to hold the pace, though, until about the 5km mark, when the taste of blood hit me and I suddenly felt like I wanted to be sick (and I slowed back to 4.8 min/km)...Apart from that, guess it was ok for a first run in a while (not really, but I'll be lenient on myself; but just for today, mind...)
0516 - Stretch 28 min.
0600 - Shoulders/Abs (1 min recovery, except after Abs - 30 sec):
1. DB SP 2 x 8, 2 x 6
2. BB SP 2 x 8, 2 x 6
3. DB LR 4 x 12
4. Inc DB RR 4 x 12
5. Abs 4 x [a. weighted crunch x 15, b. s/b db-leg raise x 10]
Good session today. Strength was up from last week And I decided to add BB SP back in, and had no pains there. I did, however, get a sharp pain in my left anterior delt during DB SP (but that may have been because I was lifting a weight I've never done before). The taste of blood returned duing the BB SP, but was fairly tame compared to what it has been over the last few weeks. By the time I started Inc DB RR I had that pain in my temples and a migraine that made me want to scream, and it gradually got worse (course, having my head upside down for the s/d db-leg raises didn't help), and at one point I nearly thought that I was going to be sick (I wasn't, but that feeling is not the nicest), but I managed to push through. I walked out of the gym a little relieved that it was over, but pleased at the work done.
Sleep - Time and Quality: ~2215-0315, so ~5 hours sleep. No interruptions last night (and I never woke to the text someone sent at 2306, so I MUST have been shattered). Dreaming...
Mental Alertness/Focus: Not too good this morning. After the gym I had breakfast and a shower and went back to bed from 0737-0958 (sleeping for ~2 hours of that), because the pain in my head made me in no state to be trying to do anything where I had to think or concentrate too hard. Been really good since I got up, though. FINISHED my business plan (yay; finally), so that's a positive note...Now to work on designing a performance testing protocol for my muay thai boxer for tomorrow morning...
Energy: Yeah, been good (even with the migraine this morning, it wasn't lagging)...
Motivation: Now that one hurdle is out of the way, bring on the next!
Mood/Aggression: Aggression from yesterday is gone. Small smile...
Libido: Might pick up later (as it does...)
Endurance: Still got plenty of that...
Strength: Still improving!
Quality of Training: Not too pleased with the run. As for the gym; despite the migraine, the actual session was real good.
Pump and Vascularity: Definite pump in my anterior delts, at least, in the gym. Strong veins in hands and arms, still.
Muscle Hardess/Density: Yeah, good. Arms looking harder.
Body Composition and Look: Even though I had a t-shirt on in the gym (yes, it was cold there, too), you could tell that there was muscle beneath it...OUT of the t-shirt, my upper back, delts, chest, upper abs and obliques, and hips are continuing to lean out...
Overall Sense of Feeling: Good. (Not enough to want to get back into my meta-analysis, but still)...And no, Sean, I HAVEN'T forgotten about you, but e-mails may be a little scarce for the next few weeks while I am rushing around trying to be everywhere and do everything at once...
Well done, keep it up, and well done on the early run!! i could NEVER do that.... besides I'd shrink :P Literally :P
whats the deal with your taste of blood you always mention like seriouslly tasting blood? that cant be good
I'm not too worried; you shouldn't be, either...
love chatting with ya, ttyl
ps- that is indeed werird with the blood stuff still o well
i should of worded it better. in college i was on the crew team and for pratice we did hour of power, hour and half of nonstop rowing, then we also did tons of extremely important 500meter races, 1000m races and 2k meter races along with many 6k and longer it was the hardest sport i ever did, but i never did track of cycling competitivly
0430 - HIIT Run:
a. 4 min jogging
b. 4 x 20 sec work/10 sec easy
c. 2 x 60 sec work/10 sec easy
d. 1 x 90 sec work/10 sec easy
e. 12 x 20-25 sec work/5-10 sec easy
f. 6 min jogging
So, not cold today. Raining instead, LOL...I increased my sprints after the first four, since they seemed easy as (even though, yes, the taste of blood was back after the 4th sprint, and I felt like I was going to be sick - getting a lot of that these days; wish my body would either throw up or just NOT get like that at all, instead of staying in that nauseous place and feeling like ****e and nothing happening!) Anyways, 60 seconds still seemed a little "easy", so I went up to 90 seconds, and yeah, well, THAT wasn't so easy; so I decided to do the last lot of sprints for not so long...Strides were quite small, and towards the end, my body felt like it was barely moving at all...
0517 - Stretch 26 min.
0600 - Arms (1 min recovery between sets):
1a. Weighted Dips 6 x 8 SUPERSETTED WITH 1b. DB ZC 6 x 8
2a. Flat CG B BP 2 x 8, 2 x 6 SUPERSETTED WITH 2b. DB ZC 2 x 8, 2 x 6
3a. DB FP 2 x 8, 2 x 6 SUPERSETTED WITH 3b. Inc DB BC 2 x 8, 2 x 6
4a. O/H Rope Cable T/ext 2 x 12 SUPERSETTED WITH 4b. DB CC 2 x 12
This was a better session than the same last week. Went up to +13kg with weighted dips (which, yes, surprised me; the DB are getting easier and easier to hold in my feet). No problems with DB ZC today; no sore wrists or forearms, and massive pump in biceps. Increased the weight on Flat CG BB BP by 7%, DB FP by a minimal 1%, and Inc DB BC by an interesting 13%. I had that pain/migraine by the time I started Flat CG BB BP, and I was shaking uncontrollably from my first set of DB ZC (until well after I got home), and my eyes were so bloodshot throughout that you could be forgiven for thinking that I was on something I shouldn't have been...My delts and arms looked really good today; the striations in my delts are starting to show nicely, and the veins in my biceps are getting quite prominent. Well pleased with the session (even if I DID feel sick right through it).
Sleep - Time and Quality: ~2315-0315, so ~4 hours sleep. Was reasonably fresh and bright when I woke up. Last night when I went to bed I was like a little bouncy bunny, and it took me a good 3 hours to "settle" down...
Mental Alertness/Focus: Yep, good. Did some athlete performance testing this morning, and then meetings with business advisors. Got to prepare for client fitness testing tomorrow, and try to do some more on these epic assignments I have...
Energy: It's been there through everything. Felt a bit shattered at ~1234, though, so I lay down on my bed, and ended up falling asleep for ~1.5 hours...
Motivation: Strong as ever.
Mood/Aggression: No aggression, but I am in the kind of mood to "test" people's reactions today...
Libido: There was a hint of it earlier. Not sure it will resurface again today, though...
Endurance: Getting better.
Strength: Definitely getting better!
Quality of Training: A+!
Pump and Vascularity: Awesome pump in arms (and not JUST biceps, either, but triceps too). Not as strong a pump in my forearms as there usually is...Knots in veins in forearms and hands in the gym. Vascularity has been really strong all day (and it's fairly warm, too, so that's adding to it...)
Muscle Hardess/Density: Arms definitely harder (at least, they look it...)
Body Composition and Look: Still leaning. Delts and arms and upper abs keep getting better by the day. Not so happy with the legs, though; they still feel and look a little "heavy" to me...
Overall Sense of Feeling: Since I've woken up, I've been hungry as, and shovelled down ~2100 calories before I'd even realized it (you'll find it easy as to get in that extra 500 calories, Craig)...Oh yeah, and as for your question last night about whether or not I was worried about glycogen depletion; every 3rd and/or 4th day is a REALLY high CHO/calorie day, so I'm replenishing any diminished stores...

Still paying attention!
Yes Rosie I'm still paying attention. I've gone more into the I'll stay back in the shadows and observe mode now. However, since I haven't said anything much for a bit on either log I figured I'd let ya know I'm still keeping a watchful eye on you.... By all means...don't worry about e-mailing me...I know your busy and I am crazy busy as all hell right now myself... I did read your last e-mail though and I'll send off a response when I get a chance.
So needless to say, until things calm down a bit...our story like e-mails shall be scarce apparently on both sides...lol. BTW...just letting you know I didn't forget about you either... so if you end up slipping a bit...well you know the drill...I'll give you a kick in the ass and have to break out the whip on ya to get you going....
Cheers Rosie Babe!
