Keeping this going, 2014 I was mostly training for rugby and had weights at home. Also had access to an athletics track.

Track Work (mish mash)
4 x 100m w 30 secs rest
200m, 3 x 100m – 34.4, 15.2, 15.4, 15.4
200m, 100m, 200m – 31.8, 14.9, 28.9
Hang Power Clean & Jerk 5 x 5 x 50kgTrack was very poor to start, I was so out of breath from simple back to back runs. When it’s that poor I just do single runs as fatigue can make it too slow to be worthwhile. I was pleased with the last few runs, particularly sub 29 in 200m. I will try and get to the track in midweek and do another tempo session to blow more of the cobwebs away.

Breathing was an issue after 250m on most reps and I maintained as best I could. Set off a little fast on the last run to get under 76 secs (equates to 19 secs per 100m) and almost hit 72. Want to work towards a set of 6 in 72 secs.

Rugby Training
Walked straight into a f**king bleep test didn’t I. New club in South London, nice group of guys all about my age or a few years younger. I’m only after the 3rd XV with the oldies – though now that I think about it i’m 6 mins from the pitch and my work is flexible enough that I could make training twice a week.
So the bleep test, i got 10.1 (excuses: too lazy to squeeze another 0.2 out my legs and I had squat doms that held me back). Outside backs have been set a target of 13.5, I like the idea of performance targets so i’ll work hard in the stamina side of training and see where I land.

Went to do my warm up jog and someone passed the ball to me so I kicked it back quite hard and tweaked my adductor. Absolutely livid with myself, i knew I was tight from rugby and warm up was priority number one.

Played 7 x 1215 minute games, took the first few easy and gradually kicked the ball harder until i was near 100%. I did a lot of adductor rehab exercises, foam rolling, glute activation in the morning and it gave me the confidence to play.

Backs passing drills. Got the hang of it eventually and for once we were short of wingers so I got to run every other line and as I was running second line of attack I often got the ball. Got to a main game but lightning storm was VERY close by so we had to give up. Game on Thursday but probably going to skip it to have dinner with friends.

Played bottom of the table. So easy to break their defensive line that the ball rarely came out to me. Think I touched it three times and passed every time. Ran a lot of support lines, think I could’ve got 45 tries if people weren’t so selfish.
