CJ the (soon-to-be) Mighty Signs Up for Something


Recommended Posts

Hi,

It's been a long time since I have done a challenge and I decided that I needed to come back.  Since the start of summer my diet and exercise have been terrible and I needed something to inspire me to get moving.  Besides setting up this challenge, I just got done registering for my first ever GoRuck Light event.  I have a little over a year to train, and now that I have committed myself - I am excited and nervous.  In order to prepare myself here are my goals for this months challenge.

 

Lift - I am going to do a total reset on my Stronglifts program and work on making it a more regular part of my routine.  I will lift 3 times per week.

 

Eat Right  - I will track my meals and stay within my designated calorie goals.  I must do this daily.

 

No Junk - I will not eat any fastfood for the duration of this challenge.

 

Good luck to everyone on their challenges!

Recap for Monday Sept. 9

 

Lift: My planned lift days are Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.  So no lifting Monday.

 

Eat Right: I stayed at my calorie goal for the day. 

 

No Junk: I didn't stop for fast food either, which made staying on track calorie wise that much easier.

 

I was pleased with my success on day 1.  Time to tackle day 2.

If you have any GORUCK questions I can answer them, I have done a few ;)

Thank you.

 

Besides rucking, do you have any other training recommendations to prepare for a Light?

Ruck to get better at rucking, do push ups, sit ups, flutter kicks as practice. Do some overhead ruck press so that you understand how difficult it is to manage your ruck overhead and get used to it.

 

Make sure you can jog a little bit, a few of them we did some short relay races(fun stuff).

 

And always remember to have fun!
