Spring Fitness Plan
 home season

Peak/Taper

I say every now and then that I'm tapering my practices, and then I end up with the same number of practices as ever. Or more, because I'm a nutjob like that.

I've been doing five, six practices a week since fall, and I'm stuck on this plateau. Maybe I'm slightly loosening. I think getting my tooth knocked in and then stomach flu did most of that, though. All I'm saying is, I'm giving rest a chance. I know, what if. What if I'm at the bend in the river, like Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn in The African Queen. Then again they gave up and went to sleep, and their boat floated out of the storm on its own.

POPPY YOU STILL HAVE FIVE PRACTICES A WEEK

But five practices is less than six!!

And I'm doing Box's kettlebells after Saturday league practice this month, meep. Though I was so sore after kettlebells that I missed Monday jammer practice this week, like so sore that I was seriously thinking every time I had to pee whether I couldn't wait until I could pee more and cut down on trips to the bathroom. And in April and May Jackie's doing Sunday skatefit that I want to do as a breakthrough workout. OKAY BUT I'm only going to do skatefit OR league practice on Sunday or Monday, depending on what works best with my schedule. And I won't have Saturday league practice or Sunday ref practice on bout weekends, so four practices before and after bouts.

I don't know if I mentioned, I teach refs now every week. Which I intermittently have and haven't been counting as a workout, but now I say that it counts. It doesn't count for league attendance, but it counts for my fitness plan. It's actually an important workout for me, it's my recovery workout. Of course when Jackie starts, my recovery workout will be on the same day as my breakthrough workout...
