markc7 Posted January 1, 2007 Share Posted January 1, 2007 Hi gang! Since WendyRC and I are husband and wife, we decided to do a joint training journal for the 2007 contest. We are both ultramarathon runners, and both work out regularly at the gym. We have very different goals for the next six months. My goal is to gain some muscle definition and lose a small amount of body fat, although admittedly I don't have a whole lot to lose. I would also like to increase my muscular endurance. My major running events for the year are a 30 km race in March and a 160 km race in May. I might also run another 160 km race in September with Wendy, but we'll see how the first one goes before I decide. Today I weighed 189.5 lbs. I did a 60 second pushup test, and did 51 before reaching muscle failure (at around 55 seconds). I plan to work out at the gym three or four times each week, divided into fairly basic upper/lower body split. A workout typically contains about 10 exercises, 4 sets each, 8 reps per set. I especially enjoy doing exercises for my core and calves. Looking forward to this contest. Good luck everyone! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
