Stuff: Helloooooooo long weekend!! Shoulder pain is still bugging me along with these bloody shin splints, Iím pushing through these workouts but weak as hell because of these injuries. Going to push myself this weekend starting with legs Saturday morning then a 45min long cardio class, Sundayís training I will have to play by ear until I find out my game times for ball. I need to work on building up my cardiovascular stamina for my next goal, really looking forward to that training camp starting next week for femsport. This weekend is my ladies ball teams championships tournament, have 2 games Saturday afternoon and one for sure on Sunday, if we keep winning we could end up playing up to 6 games, so the weekend is going to be a busy one.
Training/diet looks very solid, CC. What is Femsport?
damn you are active lol. congrats on your last competition.
FEMSPORT was founded in September 2000 and is focused on providing a very unique annual event which challenges female athletes and non-athletes to test their strength, agility, power, endurance, and speed. There are no pre-qualifications to compete in this one day event and we welcome a variety of both non-athletes, amateur and professional natural athletes such as boxers, wrestlers, hockey players, skaters, gymnasts, fitness competitors, models, moms, fitness goalsetters, etc. from around the world.
An appealing FEMSPORT characteristic is participants have the option of competing on a team or as an individual athlete. Event categories vary and include such challenges as Biceps Curls, Kettlbell Lift, Tire Flip, Box Jumps, Obstacle Course, Tire Pull and Tug-of-War.
Each year FEMSPORT provides a competitive but fun environment and is constantly improving this event to accommodate athletes of all types. In 2005 we introduced our first year as a “drug tested” event. This ensures a fair and level playing field for all competitors and brings an excellent reputation to all who participate.
Our goal is to provide a fun sporting event which anyone can participate in and the public can enjoy. Our high volume, public venue locations help to enhanced awareness of the natural fitness industry and our local Cancer Fund charity.
Some entertainment for you... based on your thread title lol...
My wife is wanting to do something similiar, or it might be the same thing. Its a Tri-Fitness competiton. From what she told me, its something like the Ms. Galaxy competition, they test your agility, do bench press, and then you compete in your 2 piece. But best of luck in the competition, sounds like fun.
I know what you mean about the chicken breast too. I ate it pretty exclusively last time I dieted, but I switched things up this last time, and only ate it 1 meal. I actually ate more eggwhites, turkey, and exotic meats like bison and ostrich.
Sow cheddar that looks like a great new goal and event! I look forward to following along in your training log , and totally feel you on the chicken ....blech
Ahhhh your infamous logs..............looking forward to reading and getting some ideas.
Femsport sounds interesting nice working with a team as well.

Stuff: Kick ass leg workout today Iím already sore! Itís beautiful outside today and Iím pumped to kick some ass at ball. Have a great long weekend!
I have a personal trainer 3x a week right now so I go in, work out and leave. Very little brain work on my part.
The guy is incredible, pushes me very hard and I am always sore. Plus I get to do more unusual basic moves I would not have done on my own.
The heavy training I used to do has subsided a bit.
I run a var cycle every early spring and go hard and heavy till about July and then slow down again.
Age is catching up as my knees are shot. Heavy squats have done them in I guess. My knees are not what they used to be and I am quite content where I am at.
I do love reading them though as it gives me ideas and motivation to eat right and stay in shape.
