3 mile Malibu walk- we saw horses on the trail
I don’t care if I am gushing. Having a Malibu seriously makes me so content! I will brag like a little girl over her as much as I can! CONTENT. That is the ever elusive, physically expensive (I need to put in a lot physical labor to get it), sensation for me to achieve on my own steam-- having a good dog gives it in heaps. I LOVE IT!!! SO LUCKY!!! Oxytocin release in spades!!! Like living in a hug all day long!! :D!!!
some vids- I know I am slow like molasses…uh…means more time under tension right? SURE!!! HA HA! :D!!!
second carry and load
sand bag lunges
They are hard to balance!
- eventually as in took forever and space between loads–not a good “picking” day for me. Skinned my chest too on one of the loads that is gonna hurt in the shower for a while. I am chicken-breasted and have a pointy sternum in spots. I don’t enjoy the idea of bruising or cracking a sternabrae! I have a mild dislocating/popping one that is seriously unnerving to have out of whack for days.
I might be over the pain in the ass/sternum stones can be. Today’s skinned boney chest parts sucked. I think I can get most of what I want out of the sand bags. Today I also picked up the 200# bag differently to make it harder- it being wider vs taller so in a way that was a pr. I carried it more like a stone load would look like. For sure holding it more upright is easier to carry longer and more hamstring then the quad attack I felt with my newer hold. So for distance I’ll do the other grip.
I will use my tacky towel until its dead then I won’t get a replacement, switch to only stones I don’t need the tacky towel to lift and sand bags for loading. That limits me to the 200# bag until I can get the 250# one up but loading the 200# bag is plenty hard enough for me, I can just do more reps vs heavier. I am very happy I loaded the 220 one! I think that’ll do it for me for a bit until I get the stone fever again.
That 250# bag will be next to impossible to load unless I get stronger on the new stone like hold on the 200 one. So I’ll keep going but I’ll have to use the upright position to ever have a hope of getting it off the ground.
