Hot out there? It's perfect October weather here now man. Heading up to Madison mid-November. Can't wait!


Thanks! I've been working on my capacity. I'm going up against a bunch of young studs in the academy and hopefully I can set myself apart.

It was super nice this week but got really hot today at 100 deg and will be hot thru the weekend. You're going to love Madtown. If you ever meet Catfish, local blues guitarist looks like Yosemite Sam, tell him I said hello.

Took a few days off. Ate like a champ :popcorn:

10/13/15

Max test
Dead hang pull-ups - 22 (decent)
Push-ups chest to floor 80bpm tempo with metronome, one beat up one beat down- 44 (needs improvement)
Sit ups 60bpm metronome - 55 (pretty weak)

Once I could not keep pace with the metronome the count was stopped for push-ups and sit-ups.

60 min later

Low intensity/high volume WO
20 sets each of 5 pull ups alternated with 10 slow chest to floor push-ups. Took me 26 min
Total of 100 pull-ups and 200 push-ups.
2 min on 25 sec off jumprope x 5

Interesting idea training with the metronome. I bet on pushups you could really bring the pain if you brought that down to 40bpm.

10/14

30 days out.

Trail run. 5 miles with 1250' elevation gain. 54:23. Beat my time by 20 sec even though the climb was slower and felt significantly harder today. I made up the time on the way down. I'm not sure why the climb hurt more today but I think some active recovery stretching and foam rolling plus increasing volume will help. You kind of have to run everyday to get good at it.

I'd like to stay in the 8-10% range so I'm pretty close.

10/17

Trail run: 5 miles with 1250' elevation gain in 53:08.

1:15 improvement. I made all the improvement in the climbing portion which felt awesome. But I was much slower on the decent today because my hamstring started to cramp up. I should've drank more in the way up and not saved it but the cramp went away after drinking and the last mile was decent.

I've started doing more mobility work. Running really binds up my glutes/piriformis so I have been doing the limber 11 routine daily. I am going to take a look at the simple 6 routine as well. Both on YouTube

I had my pre academy physical today

BP - 103/66
Resting HR -44 bpm which was taken while I was standing waiting for to get on the treadmill for the exertion test.
I don't remember the exact protocol for the treadmill test but I was like this. 2 min of a regular walking pace at 0 deg and the pace got faster and faster while the treadmill gradually tilted to 16 deg. I was at a speed walking pace for a couple min. I think it was 12km/hr where my HR hit 136 and BP measured 124/66.

Lol my resting HR and BP before vegan was 60 and 124/84
