Your Workout Today - Page 34

post #595 of 811
Thread Starter 

Ran 3 miles in 30:00 on the nose. I tried to do it, and at times I was struggling to keep pace up hills (I forgot how even gentle uphills can feel like hell, especially since downhills don't feel correspondingly good), and it's not a great pace overall (when I stopped running before I was around 8:30/mile for three miles), but it's not bad since I took so long off.

 

Plus it was hot.

 

I've been slacking off, but I'm now Mike's training buddy. He's due to start Couch to 5K (now called "Run5K" or something stupid, but it's based on the "Couch to 5K" program) today. I've done my part today Mike. Your turn! :-)

Completed Day 1 of week 1 for 5K Runner.  After a 5 min warmup you run for a minute, walk for a minute and a half and do that for 15 mins with a 5 min cool down. Wasn't too bad.  I've done five brisk walks with my wife for 2 miles at night the last week and a half as a warm up to this.  

 

Also in the last two weeks been doing some compound dumbbell exercises and on an intermittent fasting plan.  I'm doing the one where you have an 8 hour window to eat and fast for 16 hours.

Are you doing the Warrior Diet? 

 

I am thinking about trying the C25K again if my knee can handle it.  I have only ran once since my knee surgery but I have been training in martial arts for about 4 months with no issues. We will see.

Kettlebells will take your soul and are an awesome workout and so effective.  Good work Mr. Desmond.

Not Warrior, it's the 8 Hour Diet. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2013/06/25/truth-about-eight-hour-diet-work-dietician_n_3494003.html

 

Works for me because I can still eat full meals, feel satiated and create a caloric deficit.  Some diets have you eating 6 small meals and I've never liked that idea.  One reason is because it's a pain in the ass to schedule 6 meals/snacks a day.  The 8 Hour is flexible and easy to implement.  The book recommends 8 foods to eat daily and I've been pretty good getting a healthy balance.

Yeah, I've never been a fan of the eating every 2 hours, X amount of meals per day....it's just not practical for everyone. I've always had good results not worrying about timing. I only worry about getting in my calories and macros before the day ends.

Completed Day 2 Week 1 of 5K Runner.  Also did some kettlebell exercises.  Mostly working on form, two arm swings and single leg swings.

I ran two miles yesterday. It rained and so I got out before it got muggy, which of course meant I couldn't avoid every puddle. I hate getting my shoes wet.

post #607 of 811

Woke up, ate cereal, showered. Now I'll sit on my ass for 8 hours, then golf for 2. If I feel energetic, I'll do 150-200 pushups tonight, but probably not.

 

The end.

Just curious, do you do your workouts in a home gym or are you a member of a cross fit gym?

I am in Afghanistan and we have a crossfit gym here.  If I were in the U.S. I would have to be apart of a gym because I am so used to the group atmosphere that we have here to push each other.

My Golf always travels with me...even to Afghanistan !!

It's hot today, so I ran on the elliptical while I watched a bit of Argo on the laptop. Three miles.

 

I hate the elliptical. If you think running sucks, running without going anywhere REALLY sucks.
