Both issues can be addressed. I don't know at what level you are regarding running, but you try to work your way up a C25K program (couch to 5K). This is really doable, and would be more than sufficient for an OCR of 5-10K.

 

Safe to say I could probably run if my life literally depended on it, but that would be about it. I've had a nosy at the C25K program before, and it does seem like it'd be the best bet. Honestly, I kind of think being able to run 5K would be good to do anyway, regardless of OCR intent!

I agree, to me that's a base. No matter what you want to achieve (exercise-related) you should first master the 5K. Even take it a step further if you are seriously trying to exercise a good thing to strive for would be a sub 1 hour 10K.

### Remarkable ###:

Back to squatting 2 plates! Woohoo! Next to that i had an epiphany with deadlifting, a sort of cue for me. I have to tighten up and pretend i'm pushing my gut out through my legs, and the weight comes up like a charm. So i started a note with cues which i leave hanging in my man-cave. I also wrote down a cue for BP and SQ. BP i have to remind myself to really pinch the bar, for SQ i need to make controlled use of the elastic part at the bottom to get it easily up.

 

I'm having a hard time not weighing myself and not going back to my ever-cut. I can see i'm gaining weight (fat/muscle ratio idk) my shirts are getting tighter, and the belt i use for lifting (which i re-introduced yesterday) needs to be in hole 4 instead of 5 for squatting. But i'm gonna make it through this 6 week challenge without altering my program and without checking the scale (though i'm so very curious to what i'm weighing atm)!

If you want to make it fun, Zombies, Run! have a C25K program. Have a look if there's a Parkrun in your area too. It's a great way to start running.

WooHoo! Well done. The Ques are a great idea. I think I could do with something like that for my chin ups.

I can assure you it looks a lot better this way ;) it was just an average microwave meal, though the 6 or 7 mini-parts of duck breast tasted real good, now it just needed about 4 times more meat. I really am a fan of duck breast. (and meat in general, not that you could have derived that anywhere)

Honestly, I'm not even going to think about 10k in anything other than a walking/hiking capacity until I can do 5k! It's a little intimidating...

Heh, I don't think I need sold on Zombies, Run! after everything I've seen about it on here! I'll download it and have a nosy, and I'll do some investigating on the Parkrun front as well.

 

...I think maybe I've just found what my next challenge is going to be based on!

One step at a time. I still recall my first running workout. It was 1 min run followed by a 1 min walk, repeated 15 times. After 20 minutes i felt like i was dying! Now i run somewhere between 11K and 12K within the hour.

This is what I liked about the C25K overview, there was plenty of walk/run and not just runrunrun! But hey, if I can put together a solid enough plan that I survive running through a suitably soggy Scottish winter, then maybe 10k won't be too much of a demand...

Like with a lot of stuff the first part is the hardest. By the time i had mastered doing something of a decent run (more than half a hour) i got into calculating my speed. Started out at about 8.5 km/h nowadays i average about 11 - 12 km/h. So it does get better, you just have to get started.

Home late from work for doing some extra stuff. Took the dog for a walk, helped the kid with his homework. Needed some extra rest, so by the time the kids were in bed i crashed on the couch and caught some ZZZ's. Only to wake up and go to bed. Which meant i didn't prep and took my nightshake.

So, you have $86,400 in your account and someone stole $10 from you, would you be upset and throw all of the $86,390 away in hopes of getting back at the person that took your $10? Or move on and live? Right, move on and live. See, we have 86,400 secs in every day so don't let someone's negative 10 seconds ruin the rest of the 86,390. Don't sweat the small stuff, life is bigger than that.

Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.
