9/29/15

Trail run 3 miles with 900' elevation. 34:32 nearly 3 min better than last time. I think I was mistaken about my best time on this trail. I'm thinking it was 29 min. because I shouldn't be approaching my best time the 2nd time out and it didn't feel very fast at all.

Thanks Kathy! Trail running really is incredible. The gains in cv fitness come quick. I'm already feeling that extra spring in my step even with sore calves.

9/30/15

My birthday present arrived today. I ordered a like new Waring MX1200XTX. It is an incredible blender. I made a ready to eat sweet potato soup in about 10 min.

Training:
Jump rope 2 min on 30 sec off x 6

Pull-ups 15,13,11,9,7,5,5,9
Suitcase DL 135 x 5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5 each side
Suitcase carry with firefighting gloves on
135x30'x3 each side

I did one set of pull-ups then one set suitcase DL for each arm with 30-45 sec rests

Wow. A great session. Next time I'll wear the gloves for the whole workout. Wearing them makes it harder to hold things.

10/1/15

Trail run today. Again in the heat. I hit the trail at 1:00 and 85 degrees

5 miles with 1236' of elevation in 1:03:16. Man some of those climbs were brutal but I'm proud to have run, although slowly, all the way. The way down was pretty slow because I was starting to cramp in my left hamstring. Will have to focus on hydration leading up to another go at this trail.

10/8/15

Trail run:
5 miles with 1250' elevation in 54:43. That's 8:33 faster than last week! I love those early gains in cv endurance. I expect the improvements will slow down quite a bit but hope to get this trail in under 50 min in the coming weeks.

The diet is spot on and sleep habits have shown much improvement except for the last 2 nights when I showed a slippage in self disciple in regards to Netflix before bed. I'm going to nip that in the bud tonight.

Tomorrow I will get back on the grease the groove train and shoot for a total of 400 pushups, 120 pull-ups, 350 sit-ups, and 6-8 x 600m fast runs.

Oh yeah and I've been able keep my weight up at 184 during this time.

I helped a friend move today and that ate up my morning so I reduced my expectations for training today. But still hit 450 push-ups and 120 pull-ups.
