  1. Today I finished my very first Spartan Race! It was a sprint. My time was 1 hour 10 minutes and I got my butt handed to me. Lol. I have to say though it was a ton of fun and it means the world to me that I was able to finish. I've been interested in OCR events for a while, but never thought I'd belong....until NF. So yeah... awesome. Now to train for the next one!
  2. Update: "Well hell" I have accomplished 0 things over the past 2 days. Well, that's not entirely true. Climbing 8 floors of stairs and Yoga has been going strong. My down dog has gotten better (this pose has been a struggle for me) and I have read. I walked all over the city yesterday looking at new places to live. I also started taking carefully portioned meals to work with me as well as logging my food! However, yesterday I also had 3 beers and like.... half a loaf of banana bread, which is like.... a cup of sugar. Oi. Bad Rai was bad again. But today is
  3. OK, now that I've gone back and put down what exactly I've been doing, I can talk about how I'm doing with my goals. As you can see in the previous post, I've been hitting my workouts really hard. My partner has been a huge HUGE support in pushing me to do my best. I dunno what I'd do without him. As for reading.... I've kinda been light on that. I've read for maybe 30 minutes, but that's not quite what I'm aiming for. Hopefully I'll make up for it by reading some extra in the next 2 days. Yoga is going well. It's becoming a habit. I look forward to it no
  4. I realized that I haven't been posting what my workout is. I know that it's not necessary, but I like the idea of logging it here. I'll use that spoiler/hidden content thingy to make the post shorter. Day 1 - 7/27 Day 2 - 7/28 Rest Day 3 - 7/29 Rest Day 4 - 7/30 Day 5 - 7/31 Day 6 - 8/1 Rest
  5. Awesome to hear! It's great to have something like a challenge to help keep some routine/focus. Also, I'm interested to see how your move goes/affects your routine as I too have to move in a few weeks. Also, subbing is crazy fun, but literally one of the most exhausting things I've done. So keep strong! You can crush it dude!
  6. "The Liar" - Stephen Fry, "Watchmen" - Alan Moore, & "LUYL" -That One Steve Guy. I'm bad at reading a book at a time, I need variety. Lol.
  7. I'm going to be going to my first OCR on 9/24 at the Spartan Sprint at Citizens Bank Park in Philly.
  8. Three cats raced across a lake. The first cat, from England, was named One, Two, Three. The second cat , from France, was named Un Duex Trois The third cat, from Germany, was named Einz Zwei Drei. All three cats took off to swim across the lake, but only the English & German cats came ashore on the other side. Why? Because Un Deux Trois Quatre Cinq *Rimshot*
  9. Hello people! I feel sorta bad, as I don't really have any reason for posting other than to say hi. However, I was excited to see this topic on the forums. I've been looking to be more engaged around here and, honestly, being the gay guy in a room/world full of usually testosterone laden straight guys can be intimidating (I'm speaking towards experiences in life. Everyone in NF has been lovely). It's nice to have a chance to connect with other LGBTQ people that are either in the fitness world or trying to be. I'm guessing that someone else has felt that same sort of feeling. S
  10. Thanks! Granted.... it would all be a lot easier if I weren't having to work out/get home at 2 or 3 in the morning.... which it is now. I haven't even had dinner! My work does not lend itself to living healthily. Haha.
  11. Today's update is: "Ow" So yesterday I completed my first full circuit workout. Man that things has left me sore in places I didn't know could be sore (curse you bear crawl holds)! It was intense and outside so it was hot and muggy, but I prefer working out outside. Plus I figured training in the summer heat was better for gearing up for my first OCR. Yoga is going well. On advice from a friend, I've started recording myself on my phone so that I can watch my form better. Apparently my yoga form is atrocious (then again in general my form is a weakness). So I'm focus
  12. The Bad News: So, my seminar/luncheon thing with my boss's boss went well. I enjoyed myself. I think I made a good impression. However, I got home at 2am (having not eaten dinner) and, in order to make the class on time, I had to get up at 7am so I could leave on time. So yesterday I was running on about 4 hours of sleep. By the time I had gotten home at 8, I was so tired that I made the call that it would be unsafe for me to try to do anything strenuous. So no progress on the workouts. The Good News: Yoga/stretching is going well. It's encouragin
