Rest day, nothing to report.
Today I went for an easy three miler (29:35) and did “Cardio Power and Resistance” from Insanity. I’ve also started incorporating a little bit of basic yoga into my daily routine - a morning routine and an after run/bike routine. Hopefully this means being less sore! Although getting into shape will help with that as well haha.
To start things off, just posted starting pics.
Also, I’m 5’11” and weigh 200 lbs. On my last APFT I scored a total of 185. I had 40 pushups for 60 points, 51 sit ups for 61 points, and a 16:08 two-mile for 64 points. You need 60 points in each category, meaning I cut it close!
To reach my current goal of 70 points in each category, I’ll need 49 pushups, 58 sit ups, and a 15:42 two- mile. Easy!
Need to drop 20 lbs. for the weight goal.
My longest distance run so far is 10k, do I just need to double that for the half marathon goal haha.
Today I bike for 15.44 miles and averaged just over 14mph, and also did day 2 of Insanity (plyometric cardio)
The bike ride was nice, got to get out of Huntington and see the country some.
I was seriously struggling with Insanity. This is going to take some getting used to!
Oh hey, been a while. I’ve kind of been in and out of running for a while now… But it’s time to make a new attempt! And I’m jacking up the overall workout plan thus time.
Run: 12-20 miles a week, four runs a week.
Cycling: 20-40 miles a week, two rides a week.
Insanity: six days a week.
Pushups and Situps: here and there (still in the army, after all).
Overall goal is just fitness, plain and simple. But some more quantifiable goals: 70 on each event on my next Army PT Test (APFT) next month, drop to 180 lbs, and to run a half marathon.
I’ll be recording daily workouts, and weekly goal progress.
This time I’ll stay consistent!
