  1. Need to get back on track and updating my progress. I've had a really busy week, and spent to the weekend in New York City for my fathers birthday, so i had to put life first, but now that things are quieting down time to get back on track . Week One Recap 1) Went for a Run wednesday and saturday, practice got cancelled thursday last minute so I lost that chance to get in my exercises. Disappointed that I only got out for a run, but I am really proud of myself for getting out and running on Saturday. I think this was the first time in my life I have ever actually gone out for a run while on a vacation, and I got to cross of a major buck list item of my in running across to Brooklyn bridge. Already been out running twice this week so I am defiantly trending in the right direction. 2) Only trained by myself once, the fact that practice got cancelled also robbed me of a training session. Need to be more dedicated and finding sometime to do work on my own. 3) Completely failed at this, my plan is to get up early and do morning Yoga however I have been really struggling to get up in the morning. Need to do a better job of waking up to my alarm and getting up and being active. Life Goal: Haven't done any reading, I am going to try and set some time aside during my lunch break to get some reading in. Here's to this week improving on the last!

  3. I started playing in 2006 back in high school, but this is my first time playing since I broke my ankle in college back in 2009. So technically i've been around it for 8 years but only playing for about four of them.
  4. Thanks for all the awesome support from everyone! Today was the first time I was able to run since my injury, and ran about two miles. Still in a decent amount of pain so i didn't get to reach my goal of three miles, but it felt great to get out and run!!
  5. Is it too late to join the Brigade? This group looks crazy awesome, and I would love to join. My challenge is below http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/54667-drc242-recovering-from-a-critical-hit/#entry1224903
  6. This is my second attempt at challenge, I actually managed to make most of my goals for myself however I had life get really crazy, and struggled to keep updating and dropped out. But this time I'm back (albeit a week late) and ready to get started. Link to my first challenge below. http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/48852-drc242-beat-the-game-on-medium-and-about-to-raise-the-difficulty-to-legendary/ Main Quest Get off the IR and back onto the field! I am an avid rugby player, and two weeks ago suffered a collapsed lung in practice, and as a result will not be able to fully participate for the next six weeks as I fully recover. Therefore my quest is to be ready to step on the field in six weeks and be in shape and ready to compete. GOALS Cardio 4-5x a week - I can't lift for another two-three weeks, so till then all my focus is going to be on cardio and making sure I am in the best shape possible. These sessions will consist of 2-3 HIIT routines and 2-3 medium distance (3-5 mile) Skills Training 4-5x a week - These will be dedicated to focusing on improving different aspects of my game (Passing, Lineouts, Agility, etc). Yoga 3-4x a week - Flexibility = Decrease risk of injury and staying on the field longer. Due to my recovery process, this may be limited early on to avoid poses that involves heavy use of the upper body, but I will work around that...NO EXCUSES!!!!Life Quest My life quest is to spend a half hour every day reading. I was tempted to make this a certain number of books, but I felt that would make me just binge read on the weekends, and I would like to be more consistent in reading every day.
  7. Really crazy week at work and haven't gotten the opportunity to sit down an update my progress, but here I am now. My high school started up a touch rugby sevens for alumni on wednesday's and I went out last week for my first time playing rugby in almost two years, and it was absolutely awesome to get out and be running around again. Unfortunately my new cleats I bought tore apart my feet, me caused me to skip my lifting session on Friday (Leg day) because I was having difficulty walking around and didn't feel safe lifting. But I kept up with lifting the rest of the week, I subbed out my cardio wednesday with playing rugby wednesday, and playing pick up basketball on Friday, Even though these weren't what I had planned I definitely got in a great workout. Still doing a great job keeping track of all my food, and cooked my meals for the week ahead .
  8. That's awesome about your apartment, congratulations. And great job staying motivated to get some workout in even if it's not what you had planned, I know for me when things get busy I struggle to keep with my workout, so I'm very impressed by you.
  9. Spinach salads are a cheat code to life, I never make a salad without it. Glad you made the awesome discovery
  10. I love that way of thinking! Totally gonna steal it and put it to use.
  11. Had a difficult day today, but managed to keep track of my goals. I usually get up at 5 to go to the gym before work, but I just couldn't seem to get myself out of bed this morning, but I was able to get myself motivated when I got home and made sure to hit the gym in the afternoon. Still doing a good job tracking all my food.
  12. Just wanted to stop by and say I'm rooting for you. Can't wait to see your progress over the next six weeks!
