  1. For the record, my order at chipotle is only $7.30 in total and if I eat there everyday for a month, using the number 30 as set number as most months have at least 30, that is only 7.30 • 30 = $219 a month on food for the whole month, 3 meals a day. Which is better than most. And it’s good food. So I’d say it’s pretty reasonable.
  2. Well then I always aim to be impressive lol! And hey that just means you have more experience! And wise wisdom, some of which I have already heard! Keep it up!
  3. Hey guys! so my weekend was fun! I got some very nice gifts from friends and snagged a few bowls of ice cream (no cake for me, never liked it ha) but I went for a six mile walk in an hour (so about 3 miles per 30 minutes) with a friend, did some body weight work, while she counted out my reps, though I did get her to do some push ups on her knees so I consider it a good day! That was all for fitness so no swim or run but at least I got some distance and some strength in. Hope your week is going well!
  4. Oh geez 5 miles in 19 minutes!
  5. Thank you! Any idea of doing a sort of special birthday workout? I once knew a guy who really pushed himself on his birthday as a way of celebrating for himself before he went out with his family and friends.
  6. Yes! I mean I’m moving out about 4 months and I don’t know if I’ll be taking my Xbox 360 with me but it was 20 bucks and had all the DLCs so why not!
  7. Awww lol I’ve never been called a major badass before I’ll definitely join the PVP!
  8. Amazingly well! Just got back from a run and I’ve been swimming every few days and been doing push-ups, sit-ups and pull-ups every other day. I’m gonna work on an essay for school, I mean play Fallout New Vegas ultimate edition, I mean focus on school, cause I just got it , a little pre birthday treat for me cause my birthday is on Saturday!
  9. @Mr_Willes @Xena @jonfirestar @Charlie_Quinn Well you all certainly are a merry bunch! I wouldn’t go quite far as to Self- diagnosed with RangerBrain tm (probably denial but I’m in school to be a nurse) but I’ve been working on this for a year or two, way back when I was first interested in joining the military but sadly, my kidneys keep me from serving (I have Nephrocalcinosis) (I was going to go in as a W68 but I’m training to be a nurse so it’s not quite the same but I’ll still be helping people) so now it’s just something I like to do to keep healthy and in good shape. It’s a little extreme, granted, but it’s just what I’m used to. My current times are a 7:24 mile and a 14:50 2 mile last time I ran them. (I swam the 1,500m (time was 25 minutes) and I ran the 1600m in high school, I graduated last year.) I also grew up in Washington so there were lots of trails and hikes for me to go on! There’s this one that’s 17.9 miles and I would go on it every month or so, some times more. thanks y’all!
  10. Hey thanks for the reply! I know it’ll take a long time, like you said years and not months, but that’s progress. It’ll take years for me to do all that but I’ll get there eventually. Using the army rangers as an example, they train even before they start SFAS, let alone if they even have a high enough score for it. So yeah, it’ll take a while, more than likely a few months and even years, but I’m not looking for a quick fix, some high that’ll last a few months then end as life gets busy, I’m in this for the long haul. I want fitness to be a part of my life, not just something to do a few times a week. And thats not to say say that I won’t start small, there’s one hiking trail in my area that’s 17.9 miles that my mom and I go on every chance we get, I haven’t carried anything near 50 lb ruck with me but I’ll work up to it. as for running? Well that’s just another part of the puzzle, go slow until you can go fast and then go faster. Thanks for your time!
  11. Oh my! Thank you, that’s so sweet of you! also I love David Tennant!
  12. Aww thank you! It’s just like, I love chipotle and they’re one of the better “fast food” places and they’re so wonderful to talk to everyday. So win win!
  13. Well hello hello hello old friend! I am, of course, talking about Chipotle. Now I’m on a 5 week weight gain plan, 3,000 calories and at the center of it is one meal, everyday, from Chipotle. My order? A burrito bowl. With both kinds of rice, beans and chicken and steak. And the veggies. And the tomato and the corn. And guac. And Lettuce. It’s gianormous and a whopping 1,385 calories. And that’s just for lunch. For my post workout, it’s a simple shake. 15-20 minutes after workout Post workout shake 16 oz Whole milk 1.5 cup Whey protein powder Handful Strawberries Handful Spinach 1/2-1 Quaker Oats 2 teaspoons Oil oil 14 Walnut halves Here are the stats: 732 calories 21 g of fat 58 g of protein 78 g of carbs 14 Walnut halves 185 calories 18 g of fat 4g of carbs 4 g of protein During the rest of the day, I’m eating walnuts, doing 1/2 gallon of milk per day (which includes the 2 cups in the shake), an apple and two servings of almond butter, 2 protein shakes throughout the day for (1 in the afternoon before lunch and 1 before 8 for dessert.) then to chipotle for the burrito bowls. Notice how how I didn’t mention breakfast or dinner? I’m an intermediate faster so I don’t eat before 11 and after 8.
  14. Hi there I’ve already posted this in a few different places but I didn’t realize I didn’t do it already for the challenge! So here you go! Swimming: - 2-3x a week, 2,000 meters - Wear fins when swimming for half Swim freestyle for 200m, get out of the pool and do 20 pushups and 20 abs of choice. Get back in the water and repeat above ten times. This totals 2000m of swimming 100-200 pushups and 200 abs of choice. This is one great workout for the arms and lungs. Hypoxic pyramid adding the PT at every 100m. Hypoxic- Swim 100m freestyle breathing every 4 strokes and build up to 10-12 strokes per breath for 50-100m each and work your way back down the pyramid. This workout, if you go from 2 - 12 - 2 using the even numbers as your step will only take about 20-30 minutes but will challenge your lungs to the maximum. Running: - 5x a week run 5 miles I’ve been incorporating at least two or three of the following workouts in hopes of decreasing my time, my goal is to have a sub 12 minute 2 mile. Workout #1: - Run one mile easy/stretch - Repeat 8-10 times - Run 1/4 mile at 10-20 seconds under current mile pace - Jog slow or walk 1:00 Say you are running a 9:00 1.5 mile run = 6:00 mile pace = 90 seconds 1/4 mile run. Try to hit these 1/4 mile intervals at 70-80 seconds. Benefits - increase foot speed, and build VO2 Max. Workout #2: - Run one mile easy/stretch - Repeat five times - Run 1/2 miles at 10 seconds under current mile pace - Jog slow or walk 2:00 Workout #3: - Run one mile easy / stretch - Run one mile at 10 seconds above current mile pace - Jog 2:00 slow - Run one mile at current mile pace - Jog 2:00 slow - Run one mile at 10 seconds faster than current mile pace - Cool down jog 5:00 - Stretch Workout #4: - Run 5:00/warm-up/stretch - Run for 30:00 total BUT - Run 1:00 sprint / followed by 1:00 slow jog for 30:00 Hiking: on the weekends The long distance ruck marches for 10-20 miles with at least 45 lbs in a rucksack. Rucksack for 1-4 hours at a time combined with smart foot care. 18 miles with 50 lb ruck sack in 4.5 hours. A good goal is to get 4 miles in under 35 minutes. PT: Every Other Day - Pull-ups, 100 (10 sets of 10 reps). - Push-ups, 300 (15 sets of 20 reps). - Sit-ups, 300 (10 sets of 50 reps). Hope everyone has had a good start to thier challenge! Keep up the good work!
  15. So I’ve just started implementing two or three of these workouts below in hopes of cutting my time. Any tips? Workout #1: - Run one mile easy/stretch - Repeat 8-10 times - Run 1/4 mile at 10-20 seconds under current mile pace - Jog slow or walk 1:00 For example, say you are running a 9:00 1.5 mile run = 6:00 mile pace = 90 seconds 1/4 mile run. So you would try to hit these 1/4 mile intervals at 70-80 seconds. Benefits - increase foot speed, and build VO2 Max. Workout #2: - Run one mile easy/stretch - Repeat five times - Run 1/2 miles at 10 seconds under current mile pace - Jog slow or walk 2:00 Workout #3: - Run one mile easy / stretch - Run one mile at 10 seconds above current mile pace - Jog 2:00 slow - Run one mile at current mile pace - Jog 2:00 slow - Run one mile at 10 seconds faster than current mile pace - Cool down jog 5:00 - Stretch Workout #4: - Run 5:00/warm-up/stretch - Run for 30:00 total BUT - Run 1:00 sprint / followed by 1:00 slow jog for 30:00 Try these workouts during the next month using two to three of the above workouts each week mixed with your normal pace jogging on other running days. I’ve also started to light weights on these lighter days, just light stuff for now, but I hope to improve that as well. Thanks!
