It’s been a while since my last post, I could make a bunch of excuses why I haven’t been posting, but all that really matters is that I haven’t posted in a while. Since my last post I’ve been spreading time with family and friends I haven’t seen in a long time and even hiked a few mountains. I’ve remained active, strength training 2-3 times per week and have been crosstraining in cardio 2-3 times a week. My weight remains the same at 175 lbs, but I feel stronger… so I recently decided to purchase a skin fold caliper to measure my progress with regards to % body fat, instead of just a scale and some benchmarks I set for myself. I’ll post later about how a skin folks caliper works and what my measurements are currently.

More Cardio

Sunday was a rest day, with a weigh-in…I was at 174 pounds (78.9 kilograms). Monday was back to business…I decided to increase my running interval again, so Monday looked like this; walk one (1) minute, run/jog nine (9) minutes for three sets/intervals/cycles/repetitions (whichever you prefer to call them) for a total time of thirty (30) minutes. My average time was about 10 minutes per mile, so roughly 6mph…which I think is a decent pace. Tuesday was speed walking for thirty (30) minutes. Yesterday (Wednesday) was another running day I did the same workout as Monday, except I ran for twenty-nine (29) minutes instead of thirty (30) minutes, because I finished my loop early. I had not really been focusing on distance of my runs, just the time intervals of my run, so I decided to track my run distance this time. My total distance travelled now is 3 miles, so that has me running pace was nine (9) minutes and forty-one (41) seconds per mile, so roughly 6.19 mph…which I think is a decent pace. That’s all for now…remember to properly warmup and cool down before and after exercise.

Working on cardio, with not much resistance…

It’s been almost a month since my last post, I’ve been slacking off in my posting again. I’ll lay out what I’ve been doing since my last post and what I’m planning for the rest of the week.

I’ve mostly been running and working on portion sizes and only eating when I’m hungry. I need to start back with some resistance training, but I’ve been sporadic at best in the last month. I weighed myself this past Sunday and came in at 173 lbs, so I’m slowly getting closer to my goal weight. That’s it for now, I’ll post more later. Remember to properly warmup and cool down before and after exercise.

Climbing and Running

I have been busy of late, and not been able to post. I have not been working out in the conventional sense, but have remained active none-the-less. Below I have outlined what I have been up to since my last post.

In the future I will attempt to be more vigilant in my efforts to report my workouts. Remember to properly warmup and cool down, before and after exercise.

Lots to report…

It’s been a little while since my last post, so I’ve got a bit to report. As I reported previously, Sunday I started training to run a 5K, as part of my training I’m incorporating intervals into my workouts. Sunday was also a weigh-in day, I weighed in at 174 lb.s Monday I walked briskly/speed walked for 20 minutes. Tuesday I walked 2 minutes, then jogging 1 minute, repeating this 6 times for a total of 18 minutes. Wednesday I walked briskly/speed walked for 20 minutes. Thursday I repeated the same workout as Tuesday, so I walked 2 minutes and ran 1 minute, repeating 6 times for a total of 18 minutes. Today I walked briskly/speed walked for 20 minutes. Remember to properly warmup and cool down before and after exercise.

A little 5K training

Yesterday I decided to start training for a 5k, the training program I have developed starts with interval training. For my first training session a jogged for a quarter mile, then walked a quarter mile. I set a 30 minute timeframe as a goal for my training. My total distance was 2.15 miles and the training session lasted 31 minutes and 46 seconds (31:46). Remember to properly warmup and cool down, before and after exercise.

First Post in a While

It’s been a bit since my last post, I’ve recently moved and took a trip to visit friends, so I haven’t been exercising regularly. Sunday was a weigh-in day and I’m at 174lbs, which was to be expected with eating out and not exercising. More to follow…
