Felt great to be back at Terre Blanche. Shot 8 under today so my game is coming back to life it feels like. It's been sleeping for a while but working with the heavy club has awakened my game. Not a moment to early...:)
Gearing up for long runs. Good down here when running up the mountains in the heat. Last time I hade to carry a 1,5 litre bottle around which felt even more amatueristic than my running itself. Now, I feel like a pro:)
A day at Monte-Carlo Golf Club. First time i've played the actual course.
The course is crazy ondulated but fun to play. Heading over to Terre Blanche tomorrow for a sweet day on both courses over there. Terre Blanche is trying to make their place into a top of the art training institute for tour players to gather to train. Terre Blanche is for sure on the right track.
Unreal views from up Monte-Carlo Golf Club today.
I'm loving my heavy club to practice with. It's pretty heavy, maybe 3 kg. I have no clue actually but it feels like that. It makes me use my body good since you need it to hit the ball far. It's the loft of an 8 iron and I can hit it 135 meters maybe. I try to hit it as far as I can all the time to use my body in the best possible way. If it goes long and straight I'm happy...
Alarm for 5.30 again. Hate those numbers but it's ok when you've finally made it out of bed:)
2010-08-18 Gearing up for a tough day tomorrow...
Have been taking it a little easy for the last few days and I´m gonna try to shock the body tomorrow. So, sitting here eating and drinking water to get into the right mode. Mastodont breakie, little protein sahke in the car to the early morning work out. RedBull 20 min before the workout start.
The first workout is a heavy one...
1. Warm up running and flexibility
2. Shoulder complex exercises (Loads of them:))
3. Chin-ups (all out times 3 sets)
4. Laying down pull-ups (all out times 2 sets)
5. Complex five bar times 3 sets with olympic bar (55 kg)
6. Loads of hang-cleans times millions sets:)
7. Core exercises
Protein shake a´la GRANDE!
Meeting up with my physio Pierre to do a little flexibility session and massage.
Golf from lunch to dinner.
Coffe time. Strong espresso preferraly!
Then we get to the fun stuff....or NOOOOT! It´s time for interval training! 10 X 1 mintues running on 18 km/h with a minute rest in between each minute of running.
Protein shake a´la MULTIGRANDE.
2010-08-16 My vacation was all but a vacation. I think I have some serious "letter combinations". Not so good at just chilling and enjoy doing nothing. The good thing now is that all my friends that have been down here are gone and I can now relax and get back to my normal life again.
Went up to Monte-Carlo Golf Club today where Johan Ryström shot a 60 when the tour stopped there a few years ago. I think he lipped out for a 59. Not sure but hell of a score. The golf course looks like a lot of fun and the practice area is good enough. It's 900 meters above sea level and the air actually feels fresher than down in Monaco. Maybe it's because there are less Ferraris and less cigar smoke than in the city...
This was one of the nicest range sessions I've ever had. Clear skies, crisp temperature, a "heavy club" and golf balls.
