Strickland5 remembers Rule No 1

Recommended Posts

Well gang here we are ...

Trying to avoid a pandemic while trying to stay healthy

 

We have to remember the rules of ZombieLand! 
 

Quest 1

That's right CARDIO! Can't out run the zombos if you're not able to run in the first place

 

 

We're looking at 3 runs of 3+ miles per week - probably more, but we're just starting out and the zombos haven't broken out ... so yeah... remember

Quest 2

For me this is going be to be doing 3 days of body weight work to replace my OTF visits as that isn't happening for a bit.

I need to come up with a system of stuff - current thinking is 5 pushups and 5 squats whenever I go to the bathroom but seems a bit random. 

 

Quest 3

This is pre/post work out stretching - something I'm HORRIBLE at doing! 

 

So I'm going to try to do 5 minutes of stretching before and after any cardio!

 

Quest 4

Take some time to sit back enjoy a book, a nice meal, etc ... you know self-care.

Heck yeah Cardio! Cardio’s the best!

 

Yes, but I do sometimes worry about overbalancing toward slow twitch. No one ever needs to do a sustained two-hour jog away from the zombies. The 3-milers Strickland proposes are better for zombie survival prep, but still I feel like these days are calling more for hard intervals.

I would suggest giving Zombies Run a try as they do a zombie chases (aka intervals)

Definitely will have to do some intervals in that - though when the wife and I have to run single file through an area the lead runner will usually go faster than the lag runner ... so good times

I'm on season 6 🙂

[but I turn off the chases because they are kind of annoying...guess that attitude won't be so good for my apocalypse survival odds]

The question of slow vs fast for zombie evasion depends on what turned them into zombies in the first place. If it's a disease from about 2001 onward, you need speed as they are fast zombies. If it's disease in a movie from the last century, they are slow zombies. And if it's some necromancer reanimating dead bodies, you need someone who can turn undead *Obliquely gestures to own ordination certificate*.

 

Also, when you said the first rule, my mind went to "Do not act incautiously when confronting little bald wrinkly smiling men!"

To be fair, any significant amount of cardio is deeply impressive to me, so I KNOW you will impress!

I feel like some minor variation on that accurately describes most of the past two weeks.
