Re: Fitness Checkin

I've been trying to walk 2 miles in 40 minutes
that would require an average speed of 3mph
I'm almost there, but the best I've been able to do is 1.8-1.9 in 40 minutes

I have short legs and I'm not very flexible, so I have to work on my stride so that walking at, say, 3.2 mph on the treadmill feels natural instead of OMG I"M GONNA FALL OFF THIS THING!

haven't gotten to the point where I'm comfortable running . . . I need a bra for my belly or something

Ow, that's not good. Hope you get to feeling better.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I just finished my first workout with the P90X program, and I feel like I'm dying. Holy crap, that was one of the hardest workouts I've ever had. I felt like vomiting about 1/3 of the way through!

Re: Fitness Checkin

Had a rough run Saturday. Was supposed to do 4 hours and ~20miles. It was my first time running trails (my big thing) in a couple of months, so I was pretty excited. However, I made two huge mistakes. One, I had forgotten how much different trails are from dirt roads... 20 miles on dirt roads are nothing, but they won't get you ready for 20miles on trails. Second, I accidentally got caught up in the excitement of being out there again, and started off way, way, way too fast. In the end, I only ended up pulling 11 miles and 3 hours. I'm still pretty thrashed from it.

This weekend, I'm going to Moab, Utah with my mom. She's trying to do the 24 hours of Utah race solo, and is going to have me come out and pace her during the night. It should be a pretty fun time.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I did 83 miles today on a mountain bike in a bit under 5 hours. The ride was mostly on the Silver Comet trail.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Last week was one of the single best weeks of working out I've had in a long time. Just the general feeling I have along with the results have been phenomenal, but chief amongst it all is that I've been very happy with my new training partners.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Went for my intro class in Argentine Tango on Thursday. Tonight is the first regular group class. Belly dance class was yesterday. Since I got the new student unlimited special, I'm planning on Lindy hop tomorrow and salsa on wednesday.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I've only worked out once in the last 2 weeks. I've been having a horrible time sleeping lately and haven't had any energy to go to the gym. I need to take some time off work to help correct myself.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I'm back in the gym on a proper schedule - Strength is spot on, coordination and technique is fine, I just need to get my cardio back on track and using the Army fitness guides to help.

I feel odd that as I get closer to the end of my wrestling career I'm in far better shape.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I hate double posting.. but am too pleased with myself not to.

After putting it off for ages, I finally got weighed as I've got fitness tests to pass.

I was 112k this time last year, a little over 103k when I started to take it more seriously a couple of months ago ad I'm now at 84. 2-5k to go and I'll be happy.

I'm still in shock it was so low.

Re: Fitness Checkin

After battling some injuries, I've worked my way back up to a 405lb bench press. My friend and I are making so much progress, that we're planning on buying bench press shirts in the fall (after we lean down for summer)and competing in some bench press only competitions. I'm hoping for 525-575lbs with a shirt, and my friend wants to get 450. I outweigh him by 60-70lbs.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Got a pretty nice muddy, snowy, losty, post-holey run in yesterday in the mountains. I was with my mom, so there wasn't as much running as I would have liked, but it was still a pretty good workout, especially since every place I would step would collapse into at least a foot deep hole.
