Sorry I’ve been a little lazy updating. I usually update at work and for whatever reason WordPress doesn’t really like to play well with my browser there.
Anyway , as you know I’ve been slacking on my motivation but that is all in the past. I finally bought my ticket this week !!!!!!! Seeing the charge on my credit card is plenty motivation to keep me going. So, I sat down this week and decided on my strategy that was going to help me beat this race. I’ve worked out a new regiment , detailing week by week . I’ve set the bar to something challenging but not overly rigorous and ultimately something I wont do. My new schedule can be found here.
So with my new schedule set up and solidified I feel like I should be able to track my gains and tweak it if necessary. A good variety should keep me from getting bored as well as keep my body guessing “what’s coming next”. So I’m really excited about my new routine. I’m even looking forward to getting up early and getting my cardio out of the way first thing in the morning. (It’s been 100+ here all week and there is just no other way to run).
Ladies and Gentleman, I give you my new training partners. These things are awesome. I will be using them for rolling / lifting / carrying. I’ve even scheduled my new regiment around working with them at least twice a week. Once I figure out how to pop them open I’ll post up a little tutorial on how to open them and what to fill them with. Right now I’m thinking either water or sand.
I did my first training session with a keg tonight. Let me say even with an empty keg these things can fool you. Empty they are about 40 lbs. I’ve decided to add 2.5 lbs a week while increasing reps bi weekly. I think this might be too light of weight to be adding so I might be adding 5 lbs a week. We’ll have to play it by ear. Anywho I’m really stoked about finally getting these and I’m looking for suggestions on what to name them. I think I already know what I want to name one of them.
That’s all the updates for now. It’s getting late and I gotta get ot bed soon so I can get up and run before another 100+ degree day.
