Charlie_Quinn Posted February 19, 2015 Report Share Posted February 19, 2015 Right, the time for half arsing it is over. I have 10 weeks till Tough Mudder so it's time to knuckle down and put some work in. It's time to get serious. 10k OCRNear the end of this challenge I'll be taking part in this 10k obstacle course race. This is kind of a warm up for Tough Mudder but it's also to give me something to aim towards this challenge. Build StrengthI'm going to continue lifting and doing Body-weight work. My aim is to do at least 2 lifting sessions at the gym and one body-weight workout either at home or in the gym. As well as these sessions, I'm going to continue working on my chin-up progression. Build EnduranceI plan on going running at least twice a week. One run a week needs to be a "long run". To start with, a long run will be anything longer than 3 miles. If I can get my long run up to a comfortable 6 miles by the end of the challenge, I'll be happy. Active RecoveryAfter tweaking my back this week, I've realised that I don't do enough recovery work. I rest, but I rarely stretch and other than walking, I don't do much low impact exercise to recover.Active recovery will vary from doing yoga stretches and foam rolling, to swimming and hiking (weather permitting). Anything other than just sitting around. 4 Quote Current: Assassins / Instagram Previous: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44 2020 Races: CANCELLED!
