Congrats, sounds like definition is popping out all over for you :) I've been major swamped but I haven't forgotten about your website. I was thinking about doing a piece on influential vegan athletes or changing times as more vegan foods enter pop restaurants. Which topic do you like better?

Thanks! OOOHhhhh, those both sound awesome. Tough decision. Influential athletes might be a good one. Especially right now when crossfit is SO huge and you know their motto is something along the lines of "BACON". I actually just saw an article this morning on Yahoo about how a high meat intake is bad and can decrease your life expectancy (Finally, I feel like people are starting to get it. It also seemed like the article was geared towards the athletic trend of high meat intake). It's definitely good to see strong athletes who do it vegan, because it starts to debunk the myth that vegans are weak and tiny.

I can't wait to read what you write. :) Thank you again for doing this, you are amazing!!


Kim

I haven't posted in a while, mainly because I just haven't gotten around to it. I haven't stopped training though. I will start posting my workouts again, I need to keep myself honest. I am sort of at a point where I feel like I'm starting to take steps backwards instead of forwards. I have a marathon in October as well as 3+ mile obstacle race in August and a 10+ mile obstacle race (hopefully it turns into a 26+ mile) in September. I seem to be somewhat on schedule with my runs, though I think my joints are starting to show the wear and tear. I'm up to running 14 miles at a time, I need to try and push it to 15 in the next couple of weeks to keep on schedule. I am weightlifting as well, and though I am slowly starting to see some progress, it's not as good as I had hoped.

This is a journey and a lifestyle and I don't plan on stopping and if it takes me another couple of years to reach my goal then so be it.

Also, today was supposed to be my Leg day but I woke up at 3 a.m. (which is an hour and a half earlier than I normally get up) and I wanted to vomit and I just hurt, so I took a rest day and slept in a bit. I will be back at it again tomorrow though, it's Shoulder's and Abs day tomorrow followed by a 6 mile p.m. run after work. :) Plus I need to get 300 crunches in, and 50 push-ups as well.

Hmm, do you take glucosamine for your joints? Wait is there a vegan form that you know of?

No, I don't take anything. Not sure if there is a vegan version of that.

I could be over training as well. It wouldn't be the first time I've done it. lol Plus working up your mileage for a marathon is tough in general so I am hoping it's just that.

There is, a few companies make it... I know NOW Nutrition and DEVA do, and I'm sure there are others as well.

Good to know, thanks for posting Darcy. The kind I last had was made from shell fish or something I think.

Last night's run with my buddy was pretty fun. It was a short run, maybe lasted 20 minutes, but it was all up hill or down hill. So it was a good workout. And my friend's running pace is a bit faster than mine so it definitely pushed me a bit, which is always good.

WOD: LEGS!!!!

Leg Extensions 3x10: 110lb

Leg Press 3x10: 320lb

Calf Raise on Leg Press 3x10: 320lb

Barbell Squat on Hack 3x10: 100lb

Barbell Lunge 3x10: 30lb

Single-leg deadlift 3x10: 25lb

Lying Leg Curls 3x10: 50lb

Standing Calf Raise 3x10: 120lb



PM WOD:

Alternating forward lunges x 10 each leg (hold dumbbells by hips)

Plie Squat x 12

X-climbers x 20 each leg

Penguins x 20 each way

So, contemplating starting a progress feed with photos. I see a lot of people posting theirs and I love looking through them for inspiration. I think it might help me keep track of how I'm doing. We shall see. If I get a chance this weekend to take some photo's then I'll attempt to do that.
