Losing that distance.
I find the fact that a few days off from running can essentially set you back to square one, well at least for me anyways. What I do find most interesting is that my pace/speed does not go down, but my ability to go the same distance is drastically severed. I took a three day break from serious running, (about 4-5 miles a day) and find myself completing a measly 2.66 mile run today and feeling...
Cardio & Legs on the same day?
I usually set aside Wednesdays alone for Strength training on my legs. Right now, my Upper body is MIA for strength training due to my shoulder injury, but I continue to hammer my legs into submission & growth. When I do lift on Wednesdays, I go extremely hard and am always struggling to maintain a normal walk on my way out of the gym, and for the rest of the day. I usually set aside...
Nothing to really say in this post, life remains the same. The pain in my foot did spark up about mid-run, pushed through it though. Final time of 39:36 which in my opinion is at least progress.
Giving up? No thanks.
So after a little 4.5 mile run yesterday, I decided to bump up the distance to 5 today. I’m feeling like I might just hit 5’s the rest of this week and maybe a long 7 on Saturday, who knows. Anyways, about half way through the run my foot started to hurt. Nothing major, but an annoyance in the left foot. Each and every stride I noticed the pain more and more. After a while I just was...
Runnin' runnin' runnin'.
4.4 Mile run today. I decided to see how far the local Walmart was from my University. Turns out it’s only 2.82 miles. So I should be hitting there and back here soon. 5.6 miles? Sounds good sometime this coming week. Anyways, I took yesterday off and I ate like shit. Oh well, though. Sometimes you have to indulge in your cravings. You only live once, after all, and it doesn’t phase...
Zombies & running, yeah, I go there.
Something most people don’t know about me is that I’m currently working on a book, well, have been for about 5 months now. It’s a “mid-apocalyptic” novel over a girl and her journey trying to survive & live in the recent turn of events of “Infected” that now dominate the Earth. Yeah, it’s been done before, but what hasn’t? ANYWAYS, I often...
5.5 miles of sanity.
Life has been getting to me lately, and running is a means for me to channel out my energy. After yesterday’s intense lifting sessions, I indulged in a distance run. As of now, my normal runs are around 5K, but a 5.5 mile run is just what I needed. Running isn’t just about testing my capacity, but also an outlet for me to channel my energy and remain focused on what’s really...
Pre-workouts & thoughts.
A lot of people don’t understand the usefulness of a pre-workout supplement & I thought I’d shed some light on why it wouldn’t be a bad idea into looking into getting one to help you chug through your workout. Reasons FOR: Energy: A-lot of people don’t have the energy they’d wish, and sometimes because of this it causes them to become more susceptible to...
3.11 mile run, hazings.
I didn’t run Friday or Sunday. But I did run my old Cross Country course with a few of my close friends and ex-teammates. That was awesome, and my time was relatively close to my season time @ 21:12 for a 5K. Honestly, our course is one of the toughest in state, so I am not dissapointed. However, today I ran a 3.11 run after a REALLY bad Saturday (I drank my weight in alcohol), but it made...
Legs, legs, legs.
Somewhat neglected by the casual lifter. Today, I hammered mine to oblivion. Honestly, it’s been a while since I’ve been this sore or since I’ve worked so hard during a workout. A lot of it had to do with the new pre-workout I took that my friend gave me. Gave me INSANE energy and endurance. Anywhoo, just for a bullshit post and in case any of you are wondering the routine I...

5 miles, for whatever it's worth.
Today I knew my run was probably going to be a little longer than usual. I started at around 2 miles a day, and quickly bumped it up to 3. About half a week ago I hit the 4 mile mark and I was like, O_O that was 4 miles? I don’t know, for some reason I just felt like giving this little route I planned a go even though I hadn’t measured or calculated the distance yet. I ended up going...
