  1. Hey everyone! I'm signing up for this, and there's a groupon discount running. Anyone else gonna be there, I've got a buddy to run with but I'm fearful he might flake
  2. So I've been horrible about keeping up with updates and this challenge in general. But I've got these now.
  3. I sets some goals for the last challenge: MAIN QUEST: Reconstruction: I have successfully torn down the ragged, bloated body I sported 6 months ago. I've become a svelter (I love that word!) more streamlined version of myself before, with an ability to run around 4 times further than I've ever done before. What I have not gained back yet is my former definition and horsepower. So, now that I've lost the weight and restored the frame, it's time to work on the body, while still keeping my cardio in check to run the Super Spartan in Wintergreen, VA on August 24th. Three goals: I want my S
  4. So I'm still here.. failurific as always
  5. I was a giant loser the last 3 weeks. I'll get some stats, but it's not worth discussing.
  6. I'm back Bitches. 55lbs floor press 12,12,12 45lbs row 12,12,10 20lbs hammer curl 10,6,6 55lbs shrug 12,12,12 50lbs seated extension 12,7,9 30lbs Dumb bell lying pronation 12,12,12 time to get a couple more 10lbs plates, and maybe a couple 25lbs. also ran 1.02 miles, 9:40 doing sprint intervals and chompy treats! Roasted Pork Loin on a bed of black kale and shredded carrots. Simple. Tasty.
  7. I did that once, but it wasn't dedication, it was tequila. Damn you Tequila.
  8. Yay! It's not just me!
  9. Well some pros and cons. On the upside, I ran monday, and for once actually managed to drag my fat, lazy can out of bed at 6:20 to lift before work. I'll post stats later since I'm at work. On the downside, I realized it's been 10 days since the last time I picked up dumbbells. What a joke! Anyway, self abuse aside, barring more torrential downpours tonight I'm going to try to get out and run this afternoon after work. Then maybe start doing the core routine that I talked about, researched, and wrote down tomorrow. Anyone got a cattle prod? Well, at least I ate well yesterday: Th
  10. Wednesday is for suspicious or evil creatures. Apparently I'm just here to define random day's themes.
  11. Ok, well ran yesterday, around 2 miles of actual running with Pathfinder. Now there's two of us in hampton roads, witness the start of my empire. Sadly, I went home and passed out before lifting, it turns out that humans need sleep now and then, what a pain. Sooooo mile sprint if it doesn't rain and I've got a date with some iron.
  12. Sooooo... I was more or less worthless last week.. I did manage to eat and drink heavily, and celebrate the 4th for pretty much the entire week. Guess I'll have to start doing some stuff today again. Run scheduled for this afternoon. Lets see if I can start lifting in the mornings finally. I'm basically a big fail, someone should beat me. Do it! I needed it.
  13. Maybe a rest day? I noticed I lost a rep or two if I didn't... you know.. sleep and stuff.
  14. Since it is tuesday... This is the part we dance!
  15. Update time! 6/28: 50lb floor press: 12,12,12 Done! 40lb row: 12,12,10 20lb curl: 10,6,4 55lb shrug: 12,12,12 45lb seated extension: 12,12,9 20lb Dumb bell lying pronation: 12, 12, 12 plus the mile sprints mentioned last post 6/30 55lb floor press: 12,12,10 40lb row: 12,12,12 DONE! 20lb curl: 12,6,5 55lb shrug: 12,12,12 (going to have to buy two new 10lb plates) 45lb seated extension: 12,12,10 25lb Dumb bell lying pronation: 12, 12, 12 (this is starting to get difficult, 30 is going to suuuuuck) So, I've determined that I'm at 17.5% body fat, as mentioned I intend to
  16. So I've been slack this week, slacker about posting, will update completely later tonight but I had to throw this out, because holy fuck. I finally got my hands on a body fat caliper. Last time I measured was february 4th, I was at 27%. Today's measurement: 17. 5. So lets see if I can do 16% by the end of this challenge
  17. Thanks, I've jacked up my knees, ankles, shoulders, wrists etc over the years in various acts of self-abuse. At this point I'm pretty much banking on stem cell and 3d printing breakthroughs in hopes of spare part vending machines by the time I get old. If not I'm screwed.
  18. Tonight: Hard running intervals: 1.01 miles. Towards the end my knee started KKKKKilling me, it had started to ache at the end of mudder. Might go back to wearing a brace when I run, anyway, cleared the mile in a little over 9 minutes. 50lbs floor press: 12,12 10 - one rep less than last time 40lbs row: 12,11,9 - several reps up 20lbs hammer curl - 9, 5, 5 - up a couple on the last set, I'll take it 55lbs shrug 12,12,12 - so.. this is all the weight I have per hand, so going to be working on holding the weight up longer until I buy some heavier plates 45lbs seated extension: 12, 10, 6 -
  19. Ok, slacker week has concluded. We return to our regularly scheduled challenge already in progress. Since I didn't spend the night at home, and had a million things to run around and do, I'll be getting back to running and weights today after work, and if I'm lucky and a check I've been waiting for comes in the mail I'll be signing myself and a partner in crime up for spartan, if not probably tomorrow. Today will be a short run, since I've taken a week off. Just a mile of sprint intervals I think, and my usual weight routine. Tomorrow I'm going to go for another distance run, and a core
