Day 2

Today I did THE INCLINE! I park down on the road and walk up to the Barr Trail parking lot. I started my timer at the trail head in the parking lot and made it to the top in 43:50. Not too bad but still about 7 minutes off my best times from way back. After reaching the top I rested for about 5 minutes or so and the went down the cut off trail. I didn't feel like going all the way around. Once I got down to Barr Trail I pretty much ran down. It was a great work out and I was only gone for about 2 hours.

Tomorrow is a strength conditioning work out. I'll probably do some squats, deadlifts and cleans and then do some bag work if I can clean up the garage today. If not, I'll do some rowing.

Day 1

Row 2000 meters
3 sets of
20 Pushups
25 Squats
10 Hamstring Curls
8 Pike Press
Row 500 meters.

Total time was 29:07

This was surprisingly difficult. My fitness has fallen off a bit since I left BJJ. I expected as much. Push ups weren't bad. Squats were tough. Hamstrings and Pike Press wasn't bad either.

Tomorrow, I run the incline.

It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, "Always do what you are afraid to do."

I've done this all before!

Yep, it's another blog about my workout routine. I've tried doing this in the past with never setting a time goal for myself. So in the end I've always strayed from the program because I get bored or lazy. This time I'm setting a 25 day goal. I will do the Never Gymless 25 day beginner plan. It consits of 3 strength workouts a week and I'm going to do 3 runs a week for conditioning and then one day off. It's a 7 day plan that I will do for 4 weeks. We'll see where I am after that.
