Remember the past: track to be able to see progress.

Plan for the future: Think up and work out solid long term and short term goals

Live for today: Have fun, to keep going

Yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come:

*Rules for Running

  • Before DST (March 26)

    • Run every Tuesday / Friday / Sunday

    • Add ½ KM every week

  • After DST (March 26)

    • Run every Sunday / Thursday

    • Add 1 KM every week

    • Add bodyweight specific workout on Friday

 

I know this means i will be running for the whole of this challenge, just putting it here for future reference, but as always will adjust as needed.

(every (even small) step(s) gets you closer to your goal)

 

I have laser-focus at the moment. So i’m taking this opportunity to engrave it in stone. All the quotes mentioned are something i need to be reminded of every once in a while to keep focus. The last week of the previous challenge and 0-week have been a beta, for this concept, and have gone extremely well.

 

This major “fix RangerBrain™” has also awakened my “join Crossift-box feeling”. But the boxes are all far out, and i cannot prioritize to the extra money at this time. But i aim for a WOD on friday when i adhere to my running rules and go from 3 to 2 sessions a week after DST.

 

Next to all this i have this creeping feeling, that doing the juggernaut workout and running 3 times a week just isn’t enough, i mean doing only 0.5-1 hour (running) or 1-1.5 hour (lifting) for a total of 6 days a week feels a bit like trying to become an olympic athlete without doing the work. Anyone relate? I know this is basically like asking if any of you Rangers has RangerBrain™. Still i’m curious if someone has the same issue.

 

Everybody have a kickass challenge!!!

 

!!! SHOWTIME !!!

And as you can tell from all the things i did yesterday it would only make sense that my weight would increase by 0.7 kg overnight... sjeeesh!

 

Where the hell did that come from. So my weigh in yesterdaymorning was 83.9 which was pretty good considering it was monday, which tend to be a bit higher usually. But yesterday i had my usual breakfast, yoghurt with protein powder, lunch was a fattoush salad, and i only had one salad cause this one said 530 kcal (i usually take two salads who combine to around 650 kcal), evening was ding-dinner (microwave meal) with rice chicken and egg. Worked out on some PWO, and a proteinshake afterwards. Nothing fancy, even within my kcal ranger of 2000.

 

And this morning, BOOM!

 

So there, i wrote it off, tomorrow will be better, especially after tonights run!

Have I ever told you how much I LOVE your challenge write-ups?!  Reading them is like listening to great workout song.  I get pumped up and ready to battle.

 

Following as always but also interested in your clean eating goals.  I'm basically doing the same thing including tracking.  Time to lean out to show off all those muscles!

You run 5Km in about the same time it takes me to walk 3Km. Just a simple thing that caught my attention just now.

 

 

That's a pretty solid walk-speed! Even with all the rough terrain you have? I don't think i can manage that, not even on the flat terrain we have here. It's been a while since i did a ruck.

No, this is over short and tall-ish (knee high) grass, around a sports field - flat terrain. Or when I walk up and down the street, I get the same, about 30min. for 3km, so 10min for 1km. Rough terrain like in the nature reserve will take longer because we stop a lot more to look at things around us, but if I walk alone to get the distance in, and it is on a dirt path, it should be about the same speed, maybe a tad slower.
