Hello all!
SBH here to document his voyage back into the light of full fitness from an injury plauged nightmare lasting about 3 months.
Objectives
to be able to run 5 miles in under 34 minutes
be able to do three sets of 10 pull-ups in 20 minutes
gain as much muscle as possible

With that in mind, I have devised my workout plan and the vague outlines of a nutrition plan. These I shall post later.

For today's entry:
2.05 miles in 14 minutes
45 minutes on a climbing wall (mostly doing easy stuff)
3 sets of 30 on those "perfect push up" devices (the ones that force your hands to rotate)

Anyway, feel free to offer suggestions, advice, questions or anything else.

Sadly, I fail at training today because my planned bike ride was cut off by a near collision with a Hummer. However, I found some delicious vegan ribblet...thingies. I will post a link/more definite info as soon as I discover it.

Was surprisingly sore from yesterday, which does not bode well for my future endeavors...

Ugh, a Hummer of all things. I can relate. Glad it was just a near collision and not an actual one! Since you're sore today though, it's not so bad that you didn't train, eh?

If it's not prying too much, what were your injuries?

Not at all; first I badly tore a quad running after a pie (long story), then when I attempted to return to running, I irritated a sack of fluid in my knee (the scientific name escapes me, begins with a b). This went "untreated" because it was originally diagnosed as a torn meniscus. Because I was'nt running, I was'nt lifting and things went downhill from there.

Anyway, on to today's update (technically yesterday's)

1 "3's and 3's" more specifically:
1x10 overhead shoulder press
1x10 lat pulldown
1x10 machine shoulder press
1x10 wieght machine row
1x10 back delt fly
1x4 wide grip pullups

1x10 front raises
1x10 lat pulldown
1x10 machine shoulder press
1x10 machine row
1x10 back delt fly
1x10 dumbell shrugs

1x10 lateral raise
1x10 lat pulldown
1x10 machine shoulder press
1x10 machine row
1x10 back delt fly
40 seconds of the farmer's walk
Ideally each group is done as a super set
with 15 minutes of interval work to cap it all.

Currently battling illness and major deadlines, but I've been doing sets of 30 push ups whenever I feel up for it/aren't busy panicking.
