  1. Phayze - good to know there's a light at the end of the tunnel!
  2. Ohh lucky you! I have to either do a very short run with my dog or take her on sprint/walks, she doesn't do well on longer distances. She normally does okay on walks/runs if I have her snout lead on because it helps redirect her focus (she's a liiiiittle hyperactive), but if I just keep her on her normal leash she'll choke herself out...she never learns!
  3. Had a great workout yesterday!! I did my back workout since I have a big going-away party on Friday, I figure i can just get a run in on that day instead of a lengthy workout I dead-lifted 155!! Personal record!! Plus face pulls, lat pull-downs, bent over rows, and an (unintentional) half mile flat out sprint with my puppy. "Let's go on a half mile sprint with a leash wrapped around my legs, that seems like a good idea!" - said no one ever. She bounced around me the whole time, I swear in her little puppy brain she was yelling HARDCORE PARKOUR!!
  4. I'll have to look at the Ekhart Yoga series on YouTube to help me to remember to stretch after my running...I'm terrible about that!
  5. Ourmisadventures- You're so right about food! Actually, I've transitioned pretty well into a "real food" diet...i rarely eat prepackaged things or fast food anymore and i make sure that I get well rounded meals (protein, fat, and carbs). I used to be terrible about eating whatever was in the kitchen because I was lazy, but now I try to make a lot of food over the weekend so I'm set for most of the week What I have noticed is that since I started heavy strength training, I've started eating a whole lot more. Almost constantly! I'll eat greek yogurt mixed with berries and granola for breakfast, avocado for a snack, salad with grilled chicken for lunch, apple or banana for another snack, normally peanut butter or a handful of nuts before I go to the gym, and a protein shake along with a piece of meat (steak, chicken, salmon, etc) for dinner and a ton of veggies...lately I'm on a huge asparagus or broccoli kick! Oh and I drink water the whole time I absolutely love yoga! I normally do vinyasa yoga, the power/flow thing is really my style and keeps me focused and engaged the whole hour. Plus I rarely go the next day without being a little sore, so I see it as a good workout too! I can almost do a full uttanasana (possibly way wrong on the spelling there LOL) without having to bend my knees or use a block. Progress, I say!
  6. I have a black lab/shepherd mix! I definitely understand both needing the walks, my pup gets destructive if I don't exercise her enough. My goal is to start taking her on my sprint workouts, since she loves to sprint across fields but struggles with distance running. I, on the other hand, LOVE distance running but struggle with sprint workouts! Maybe she can help me out. Does your dog do well on leash while running? Mine tends to clothesline herself if i'm not careful
  7. I've planned out a rough schedule, now actually sticking to it is a bigger issue... Mondays and Wednesdays I do vinyasa yoga and a 2-3 mile run Tuesday is leg day, I do deadlifts, squats, hamstring/glute curls, calf raises, and occasionally lunges. If I have time, I'll do a sprint interval exercise Thursday is chest/arm day, I do benchpress, shoulder press, dips and assisted pull ups (looking for additional effective arm exercises…) Friday is back day, generally I do more deadlifts and lat pull-downs and a sprint interval exercise Saturday is rest day. Sunday I do a long run (5 miles, long for me lol) with my dad.
  8. Hello hello! I like to think I'm in relatively decent shape, but I haven't been happy with my habits SO, my main goal here is just to feel stronger and have more energy, I think with a quantative goal of being able to get a 300 on my physical fitness test with the Army. My side goals that I think will get me there are: FLEXIBILITY: Be able to touch my toes with my legs straight, something I haven't been able to do since I was 6 years old (tight hamstrings, anyone??) STRENGTH: Dead lift twice my body weight (currently at 135 pounds dead lifting) Bench press triple digits (currently at 75 pounds) Squat my body weight (Currently able to squat 95 pounds) Do a pull-up with no assistance SPEED Get back down to a sub-15 minute 2-mile. I've always been a runner, but I find that I feel better when I mix strength training and running...the challenge for me is just sticking to a schedule! I'm excited to finally be a member of the rebellion after lurking for a few months!
