  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!
  16. Hello! So I’m not quite sure if this should go in the running, swimming or hiking section of this thread so I’ll just stick it in the general section. You’ll see down below why (I’m literally doing all three of those activities) Swimming: - 2-3x a week, 2,000 meters - Wear fins when swimming for half Swim freestyle (or any stroke of choice) 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. I add in a Hypoxic pyramid 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 (goal is to get a sub 12 minute 2 mile run) 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 ex: 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 I’ve been mixing these workouts in with my regular workout shown below in the theory of dropping my run time significantly. (I’m cutrently at about 7.5 per mile so I’m at 15 solid minutes for the 2 mile) (sooooo close!) The Run and Leg PT Workout: Repeat 4-5 times - Run 1 mile at your goal pace (5-6/mile) (no ruck sack) - Squats - 30 - Lunges - 20 / leg - Calves (heel raises) - 30 per leg 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. My goal is 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). It’s a lot but I manage to squeeze it in and honestly, it’s so good to be moving so much again! I recently joined this community and so far it’s been really nice and informative and motivational! Thank you guys!
  17. During PT with the army recruiters, we would aim to be done with our 2 mile run in at least 18 minutes. Now my goal (from 16 minutes) is get down towards the 12 minute mark, so that would be around 6 minute per mile. Any tips on how to do that? I know that it’s a mile longer so the concepts might be the same but it is a mile longer and I know distance running is different from sprints, though I’m not sure if you could count 2 miles as a distance when running lol!
  18. Hey everyone! My name is Hannah and something you should know about me: I tried enlisting into the Army but was shut down because of my Kidneys. I have Nephrocalcinosis, meaning I have calcium surrounding my kidneys and it can lead to kidney failure if my kidneys are put under too much stress. So instead, I’m going to school at my local community college to become a nurse. And I’m also still working out. Because of spite. Now my workout routine may seem like a lot, and it is but like I said I was going to enlist into the military. Goals: (I’m not going to be able to complete all of these in the next 4 weeks but these are long term goals) - Complete the 2-mile run in ~10 mins - 100 sit-ups in 2 minutes. - 100 push-ups in 2 minutes. - 20 pull ups in 2 minuets - 18 miles with 50lbs in 4.5 hours - Deadlift, bench and squat of 400 (I’m currently at least 200-250 for all of them) - Know how to read a map and use a compass. Swimming: - 2-3x a week, 2,000 meters - Wear fins when swimming for half of it How I do it: Swim any stroke you wish 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 50-100m 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 (can include biking as a substitute) - 2x a week carry a 30 to 50 lbs 5 to 15 miles at a fast walking pace. (Hiking!) How I do it: The Run and Leg PT Workout: x5 a week Repeat 4-5 times - Run 1 mile at your goal pace (5-6/mile) (no ruck sack) - Squats - 30 - Lunges - 20 / leg - Calves (heel raises) - 30 per leg (this is to stretch) Long Distance Bike / Leg Workout (Life Cycle Pyramid) x2 a week (when I don’t run) On a stationary bike with manual mode and levels of resistance: Start at level 1 for 1 minute; increase resistance level by 1 level each minute until you can no longer pedal in between the 80-90 RPM zone. Typically, I will do this workout for 20-30 minutes. Once at the top, repeat all levels in reverse order and work yourself down the other side of the pyramid. (It’s hell but oh my god do I feel great after a good workout) And, of course, there are long distance ruck marches for 10-20 miles with at least 45 lbs in a rucksack. The best way to train for these to move out with a rucksack for 1-4 hours at a time combined with smart foot care. (I.e wearing 2 pairs of socks and walking for a few hours before heading out to break in your boots.) Go from 3 mile ruck march with a 30 lb rucksack at a 45 minute pace to 18 miles with 50 lb ruck sack in 4.5 hours. put 45lbs in your ruck and move 4 miles as fast as you can. 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). i don’t always do the sets back to back, sometimes I run out of time, so I split it up, like during a study break I’ll do 1 set of each and continue on with studying, or if I’m waiting for the bus I’ll do it again with the help of the bus stop’s over hang. Me going to the Y: swim -> bike/ run -> EAT AND SLEEP.! The point is that I keep moving! Afterall, the best motivation is to prove them wrong and showing them that you can do it.
