  1. We are short staffed at work, so I didn't get out on my lunch time run but I did manage to jump rope with the kids after work, so there's that Today I got up and went to the gym, 4.1 miles on the treadmill, 3 set of 5 pull ups, 10 inverted rows and 10 squats oatmeal for breakfast, salad with left over taco meat for lunch, banana for snack and drinking water Jump rope 10 of each both legs 1 leg 1 leg (other leg) skipping did 5 sets last night, going to work on adding more sets. as time goes on
  2. Need to start some things over, need to re-find myself. I know what I need to do I just lack the self confidence/initiative to do it. So looking at something to keep me motivated I found a flat fast 5 k 4 months (123 days) from now. Goals work out 5-6 days a week Strength train not just cardio Get as close to 165 lbs as possible, right now I am 189 eat clean, more water, cheat with unsweetened iced tea Goals for today, 3 miles and 30 burpees on lunch.
  3. playing around with my fitness tracker and saw my records from last year, all of them are definitely breakable this year, so my goal for the rest of 2019 is to shatter a few of them and break the rest.
  4. Not doing the half marathon up above; tried to find a hotel/camp site before you can even register for the event and everything is booked, which made me curios, so did a quick search and I find out that it's Lake George's annual classic car show, so half marathon on open roads with a car show going on, no bueno.
  5. Trying to figure out how to program a new supply catalog, so I'm actually sitting at my desk, by the way they are looking at me it's as if I was doing what everyone else around the office was doing, which is nothing..... Going to sign up for the Camp Chingachgook half to give myself a reason to get my long runs in over the summer Totally vain, while getting in the shower this morning I caught a glimpse of my back in the mirror and thought to myself damn need to keep it up.
  6. After years of doing my long runs down by the river I like running by water. Which would explain the Hanaford Half, the Maine Coast half and now the Camp Chingachgook. Putting it on the schedule now, September 8th Lake George NY the Camp Chingachgook half; http://www.areep.com/events/acc/index.php
  7. Not letting this bother me, so we are severely understaffed at work, to the point of where my bosses are like projects aren't getting done (cleaning out the garage type stuff, nothing major) So once again I'm sitting in my office doing what I can because there is no one but me here, we are mail and delivery, we also do building maintenance and printer copier repair/supplies; basically a job that can and does have people calling at all hours of the day and packages that need to be signed for, I can't be cleaning out the garage when no one is here to sign for important things and making sure that everything is up and running. Going for a lunch time run and will try to get a gorilla work out in after work if not tonight definitely tomorrow, on week 3 of the new work outs and already seeing/feeling a difference
  8. Thanks, yea I have to find a balance between kids, a picky eater, and myself; my kids love my lemon chicken, so last night while making it I saw that we had some oranges, so I substituted orange for lemon on the chicken I was eating and I have to say it was pretty good; make again good So my long run over the weekend was shorter than what I mapped out because I made a wrong turn, honestly with the hills I'm not to worried about an extra 1/4 of a mile. Even halfway through I was telling myself if I can survive the hills I already ran I will be able to handle any of the races that I have on the schedule. Even the hilly half marathon in October will seem like nothing if I can run this route once a month and extend the mileage out; goal is to be able to run 13 miles flat*(bike path flat) and get the hills up to 10-11 miles
  9. saw on my FB today a post from last year the last run I took the girls on in the jogging stroller; this will be the first year in 10 years that I won't push a jogging stroller sorry scratch that I pushed Bug a few times before my daughter was born so I would say actually closer to 12-13 years and 10 of those years were every weekend from Mid-March until it got to cold so mid-late November. Plus random times during the week, it got to the point where people around town would recognize me as the jogging dad. Sigh enjoy the time as it goes flying by.
  10. A good kind of sore which is what I'm going for this year; previous attempts I tried to do to much to fast and ended up not working out as much because it became to much, so I'm listening to my body while also pushing ahead; it's all about balance
  11. I really couldn't think of a good title for this; so this is what you get Work outs Running minimum of 22 mpw and try to bring that up to mid 20's by the end of this challenge; plan is 4+ miles a day 4 days a week and a weekend long run; hopefully the cold and ice is gone so I can start running outside by the river again; trying to run over an hour on the treadmill is torture, I can't mentally bring myself to do it. Gorilla work out; pulls ups, inverted rows, dips, push ups, squats, 2-3 times a week. 2 times during the week and try to fit one in during the weekend Jump rope when outside with the kids; normal jump 10 times, both sides one legged jump 10 times, alternate legs 10 times; for a total of 40, building up to 5 times with a minute break in between Cooking; oatmeal every morning, salads for lunch; both are extremely easy to modify, add in fresh fruit to both and use left over protein for the salads I'm in the process of getting rid of processed food from the house; which means a lot of home cooking in a house with an extremely picky eater and two kids. I made a salad and put chicken on top of it, the reaction I got was "I don't eat this, you eat this" so I told her to put the chicken to the side; have made it a couple of times since. have to cross post an Italian pulled chicken recipe with Recipes; but for now I will share my pork chop recipe (can be used for steak) To cook a pork chop; (indoors) preheat oven to 375 Season pork chop with Onion powder, Garlic powder, Salt, and Pepper (super simple) let that set as you preheat a frying pan or indoor grill to medium heat (my stove goes to 8 and I cook around the 4-5 mark) when the pan is heated add a splash of olive oil so the pork doesn't stick to the pan, place pork chop on pan for appx 2-3 minutes flip when nice and golden brown; if you have a pan that can go from stove to oven place the pan in the oven for 6 minutes until the internal temp is 140-145 f (if you don't have a pan like that a glass dish works well)
  12. What's up party people; looks like a good time to set up a new challenge for myself; I have been upping my weekly mileage now to start adding weekend long runs back into the mix now that winter is over and I can actually use the bike path for more than just a skating path
