Training at EFS
Went in yesterday evening with a lot of shit on my mind and a plan to get a lot of stuff done. The past week or so was absolutely terrible for me. I have actually sat down and thought about it a lot, and realized that indeed, it was one of the worst weeks of my life. I was there Saturday evening as I had to take my fiancee to the airport Saturday afternoon. She has some medical stuff going on that is going to require her to be home for quite a while. To be honest, we don’t have any idea yet how long either. It was an awful day for me. She had just moved in about 5 weeks or so prior to this, and we had no idea that this was going to happen. The training Saturday definitely helped me get my mind off of things for a while and will continue to help as time passes.
The warmup was fairly long. Between driving around making sure all of her stuff was ready to go, to actually getting her to the airport, waiting there, then driving around some more to help clear my head, my hips and back were fairly tight. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but it was almost 200 miles in the car, and I never left Columbus. Long day. I also had literally nothing else I needed to or wanted to accomplish. The warmup went like this:
Hips, hamstrings, upper and lower back, quads, IT Bands, calves
About 20 minutes for all of the above muscle groups
Squat – raw, close stance
