I got to roll with various guys from white to purple. I did well from both the bottom and top positions in full mount. Mainly, I was getting reversals from the bottom and the Americanas and Arm bar from the top position. I was trying to work on taking the back and aiming at the bow and arrow choke, but my training partners saw it coming a mile away.
On both 9/23/17 and 10/1/17, I recorded over 10 miles in training for both days in preparation for the Long Beach Half Marathon and completing the 3rd race for the Beach Cities Challenge. I felt great going into the final week before the race, but I only did Jiu Jitsu training during lunch that week and strength training on 10/6/17. I had family obligations that week, so it was difficult getting any endurance training during the work week.
Squats - Went up to 625lbs - 1 rep
Deadlifts - Went up to 575lbs - 1 rep
Bench Press - Went up to 3 sets - 295lbs - 5 reps
Cybex Row Machine - 3 sets - 225lbs - 6 reps (Pronated Grip) and 3 sets - 180lbs - 10 reps (Neutral Grip)
Cable Triceps Extensions - 3 sets - 100lbs - 20 reps (Pronated Grip)
It was a full body workout, since I didn't do any strength training that week and I knew that I was not going to hit the weights until 3 days later from race due to DOMs.
Race day went well for the 1st couple of miles, then I started cramping at Mile 8 and started walking the rest of the race after Mile 9. I didn't fuel well with the electrolytes during the race. The coconut water station ran out of coconuts and the gel station had gels that were packaged poorly, so it was impossible to open the packets.
I did have 5 GU gel packets with me and I had some electrolyte drinks along the race, but it wasn't enough to prevent or stop the cramping. During training, I had pink Himalayan sea salt on my drinks, so that kept me well of enough from cramping. I learned my lesson in that I should of taken a packet full of pink Himalayan sea salt for the electrolytes. At least I completed the race, along with the Surf City Half Marathon and OC Half Marathon to complete the Beach Cities Challenge.
Tonight, I did another full body workout, since I'm on-call at work this week and I don't know when my next workout will be.
