Training Journals / Carolyn's Training Log (TraceuseDS)
« on: October 01, 2008, 01:43:38 PM »
I started doing parkour this summer, but I've already noticed that there are definitely days when I feel like I can do anything, and other days when I feel like I haven't learned anything at all. I figure that's pretty normal; so as long as I keep them about 50%/50%, I should be OK. The primary purpose of this training log is going to be to help me keep track of what I'm doing, so that I can see what works and what doesn't (and so that I can reassure myself that I am indeed making progress). I'm learning as I go, but if anyone more experienced wants to take a look, any advice would be appreciated.  :)

Prolly not the best day to start recording my training habits, b/c orchestra practice takes up most of the evening after work, but I play the cello, so I figure that's like a 2.5 hour mini-endurance workout for my deltoids and triceps. ;) And I've got to start somewhere. Most of my actual training took place at the park on the way home from work. I had about 20 minutes, so it consisted of about 10 minutes practicing my vertical jump (from the ground to a ledge that slowly increases in height as you go along) and 10 minutes doing negative pullups.

1) Do 1 complete pullup.
2) Precision 5' 10'' 4' 2'' (there's a particular bench-to-bench jump that's been bugging me).
3) Do 10 good rolls w/o hurting myself (i.e., NOT bruising my leading shoulder).
4) Hold a handstand (8 seconds).
5) Run 1 mile in under 10 minutes (sad, I know...but it's still my goal).
6) Hold a single frogstand for 60 seconds (on my way to doing a planche).
