Haikoo: Ruck My Life.

Recommended Posts

Oh, Hai!  
 
First time Assassin, long time reader.
 
For those of you that don't know me, quick intro. I have been around NF for over 2 years. I spend more time in chat than on forums, so most of you probably have no clue who I am. I have participated in multiple challenges, but I seem to have trouble completing them. Time to change that!
 
Why now?
 
Well, I am signed up to do a Go Ruck Challenge September 12 in Chicago with some other nerds. I would like to not die during this excursion. Part of me is all "Yea! You can do this!" and the other part of me is all "What have I done?"  
 
So, yea. Ruck my life.
 
 
Goals: 
 
1. Kick my own Ass
   
My fitness is not where it needs to be to do this challenge. It's not terrible, but still not where I want to be. I feel like I might be slower and weaker than many other people once I get out there, but I'm going to do what I can in the coming weeks! My guideline will be the 6 week training plan on Go Ruck's website. I have been working on it a bit already, so I will not be starting on day 1. Also,  I am really prone to shin splints (am already getting them after 2 weeks of training), so I will probably cut down the running or replace some of it with more joint/shin friendly stuff (elliptical, bike, etc.).   The important goal here  is to train at least 5 days per week. 
 
 
2. Battle WtHS

Due to this sudden increase in training and more ninja action, my muscles have been and will be suffering from What the Hell Syndrome. To combat this, I will need to make sure I am including mobility stuff often. This can mean rolling, massaging, lax balling, yoga, stretching--anything to make my muscles happier. I need to do a minimum of 10 minutes of battle each day, in some form.
 
3. No Seriously, Stop Eating Like That
As I can't do all the awesome things without proper fuel, I need to get my food straight. For me, that means eating in the way that makes me feel the best. There will have to be two parts to this:
 
a. Get back to eating Koo-leo! I've gotten lax and have a lot more treats than I should these days. I will be allowed to eat non-paleo things no more than twice per week, plus the occasional rice and dairy is okay (essentially a little cheese or yogurt once in a while).
 
b. 3 meals per day! In the past, when I've eaten my 3 solid meals per day, I feel great and see more composition changes. Lately my schedule has been all messed up and I'm averaging two meals every day. This probably means I'm under eating (even though I'm gaining weight????). Time to focus on eating breakfast at a reasonable time so my other meals don't get skewed. This will be tricky with our current schedule. It may mean not eating with the family at dinner.
 
 
 
Alright, bring it!

Thanks guys! So glad you all found me!

 

I'm going to go ahead and start logging my stuff in here, even though the challenge hasn't officially started.

 

Today's workout:

 

-3.1 mile run, time 38:17 (12:22 pace).

 

This was awful. I'm getting MAJOR muscle lockage and cramping in my shins and calves when I'm running. Possible shin splints starting, thus why i'm going to cut down the running a bit. My pace was slow because I had to keep walking off the cramps (which didn't actually help). Tomorrow was supposed to be a ruck day, but I may have to take another day off to let shins recover. I thought my left shin was going to burst forth from my leg. Not a pretty image.

 

-83 shoulder to shoulders with my bag which held 20 lbs of bricks. (set breakdown: 10, 10, 12, 13, 15, 12, 10 )

-6 x 60 sec FLR (Between each S to S set)
