Naah! We like food porn xD.
Just kidding, I'm really curious to hear news from the arizona cut program. Your schedule looks really tough! Good job! And good luck!



The cut is not going well! First I get sick and that derails my training. Then I fall behind on studies and that's derailing my diet. It's not going well. LOL

Thanks, it's nice to have a well organized and visually appealing training journal. It helps me control the chaos in my head. Lol

Oh ... yeah I'm gonna try and make the puzzle pieces fit. :D WHich basically means I'm trying my first back to back endurance days. I have 10 to 15 mile runs followed by 20 to 40 miles of trail riding and ropes training both days. It's suppose to pretty rough weather tomorrow to, so it should be interesting. I'm gonna hold out as long as my back allows on both days. Then Monday I have two mile stress (run) test. Testing my limits a little.

OK I'm a bit behind on workout posts.. I know I'm behind two at least. I'm just gonna do a quick run down and then pick things back up with today later on.

I know I'm missing a 5 mile run followed by RE upper body work out & back rehab workout. Then ...

Yesterday I did a 11 mile run in roughly 2 hours. Cycling was cancelled because weather was just to bad. I can deal with rain but this was pouring rain, really cold to and very windy. We were only excepting one day of bad weather so it didn't seam worth the trouble. LOL, the last thing I need right now is pneumonia to derail me another 2 weeks. I'm having a hard enough time getting this cut start!

So that's good enough to catch everyone up. I will go back to posting detailed days tomorrow.

today is going really good so far...

Aside from training today I mostly slept! LOL and I bought a cd of Sepulture. Roots one of their best albums IMO. A couple of bucks at Vintage Stocks. Ha I wonder if they are considered vintage now? It’s like late 90″s Brazilian heavy metal. The album has a cool indigenous sound. Great training music!

OMG, my feet are like a road map of the last few weeks of training! I have a blood blister on the top of one toe, the spider bite still healing up, a blister between my toes, some weird knot on the outside of my little toe, a little left over poison ivy around my ankles, then I have a bruise on the ankle you can't see and another bruise on the top of one foot.. LOL I guess my chances of having sexy feet anytime soon is not probably not good??!! I was considering getting a foot massage today but I'm afraid like a toe nail will fall off or something and totally freak the girl out who massages my feet! It might be more then I should ask of another human being right now.. even if I tip well it would be enough.

I did good today. I set a new post injury PR’s. All I could think was breath and run. LOL I’m not sure breathing was the top priority! I needed to know I was progressing. My last 2 mile test was roughly 5 weeks ago and 8:42 a mile. SO this is a very nice improvement!

Notes: I did have some lower back pain post run, so since the run went well I didn’t take a second try at it. I also was forced to skip cycling and weightlifting as a result. Because the pain was on the right side lower back, which is where I still have problems with a compressed nerve. I spent extra time resting, and alternating heat & ice on it simply to ensure that the pain is dealt with quickly and to get it as well as as I can as fast as I can so it doesn’t interfere with the rest of my week. I hate that I’m still not in a position to be completing my planned workouts more routinely but as long as I’m progressing I guess it’ll eventually all work out.

The evil turtle I caught murdering insects!! I lectured him about the wisdom and compassion of becoming vegan, but he wouldn't be swayed. He was cold hearted and determined to wipe the insect race no matter how much pain he caused!

Notes: I'm hoping by raising my calories today that it might help my recovery and energy levels for tomorrow.

Breaskfast Prerun - vegan burrito w/ tofu and potatoes. Coffee, soy creamer and an apple.
Snack Post run granola bar.
Lunch Post back/core workout. I had vegan pizza w/ almond cheese.
Dinner Zoe's Kitchen. Veggie kabobs, pitas & hummus and a bowl of mixed fruit.

Image

My first time at Zoe's Kitchen it's a new restaurant to our town. I liked it a lot, it's Mediterranean type food and it's very vegan and gluten free friendly. We can use more restaurants like that in town. The food was good but the atmosphere I wasn't to crazy about. It's was busy, lots of families & kids... which is fine except that the restaurant is small and it doesn't seam to be designed to absorb that much noise. It was very loud. I kind of like to be able to hear the person across the table from me and I hate being crowded in.

Ok so miserable run today but at least I had company! I got a little over enthusiastic on my recovery run yesterday and today I paid the piper, actually it was a beer bong but whose judging. It didn’t help that it was raining and freakishly cold this morning. Not so bad once my run actually started but I spent 20 minutes standing around in it trying to get my gps to log on and getting more and more irritated by the moment. Finally I threw the stupid thing away and went Flintstone style. On foot and with no GPS.

Saturday’s Run (I took a rest day Sunday)

Sorry I kinda disappeared! I had to have back surgery and it's taken me a while to bounce back fully from that. I think I have though. The last two weeks of my training have been going good and I think (I hope) I'm ready once again to resume a training full training schedule. :wink:

So I'm back to work..

Ok since the surgery I've mostly been doing rehab work and short 3 mile runs. Which I have been enjoying but at damn slow paces. We've had alot ice and snow to run in so that's been fun even at slow miles. About maybe 5 weeks back I tried 2 ten mile runs and it caused me a great of deal which forced me back to 3 mile runs for a few weeks. Last week I started picking up the miles again I'll post two of those runs. And then yesterday I ran my ten mile test run which went pretty good, and I will post that one as it's own day with nutrtion. So with any luck yet again I believe I'm ready to start building speed and miles. And hopefully get back to weight training. I do still have some lingering rehab and prehab work.

I'm 3 days into a 25 week training cycle with a new coach... so bare with me I'm a bit unorganized. And maybe tomorrow I will have time to figure out why the pics are SO FUCKING HUGE!!


So I know there’s some missing information from the last few weeks.. but my last two runs are posted in the catch up post (previous one). Other then that all that’s important is that I’m starting a 25 week training cycle. It will include marathon training, weight lifting and some residual rehab/prehab stuff that I still need. I’m also working on my nutrient timing so there will be sort of a time line posted in my training as to training & meals. I’m still hanging with the vegan diet. Although recently like literally this week I’ve started adding back in egg whites. That’s because as you will see I’m having problems with my blood sugars being a little to high. Adding in a few egg whites with some of my meals is the easiest way for me to sort of minimize the carbs on blood sugar thing.. I’m having trouble with balancing my carbs on a vegan diet and I’m going to be traveling next week so I really don’t have time to sit down and rework my diet at the moment.

Stats:

Calories Burned: 3625
Calories Consumed: 1452
Calorie Deficit: 2172 (to large)
Sleep 7:09 hours
Training Time 3.45 hours
Fasted Blood sugar 104
Blood pressure 109/80 Pulse 67
Resting heart rate 56
Cardiac Stress test 2%
Nutrition:

Calories 1452
Fat 42 25%
Carbs 207 55%
Protein 78 20%
Fiber 47
Sodium 2237
This will NOT be a good example of how nutrient timing works. What is suppose to happen is that you track your energy expenditure through the day and basically you want to balance your calorie intake with your energy needs. The goal is to always bee with in about 400 calories of your needs. So basically I would eat large meals around times when I burn large amounts of calories and smaller meals when I’m not burning that many. I eat small frequent meals most of the day. It’s really not that hard. I just don’t like eating early but I love to train early so for optimum results I really need to pay attention to that.

In my defense I was extraordinarily bust today and I just didn’t have time to do a lot with meals.

Run Notes: This run actually went really well. I felt good despite ditching hydration and energy plan. LOL .. I have no idea why I did that! I had the camel pack and a little food all ready and packed up. Then at the last minute I said fuck it, I’m just running. I can’t even explain why I did that. I just did.

12 noon / Yoga: 1 hour with a strong focus on stretching the lower back & hips.

3pm / Back rehab/ which I’m not going to break down today because it was last session.

(and sorry meals aren't copying over correctly so that's only on my blog till I figure out what the problem is.)
