Re: Mike's Mad Log


I ran 3.5 miles this a.m. with a time of 31:29. I was very satisfied with the pace and time. :)

I was really sluggish after the run, so I took the remaining day to stretch and hydrate.

[B][I]Active stretching, 2x20 sec handstand hold and 1 minute single unders[/I][/B]

4 rds

4 bench press 205#
20 band upright rows
80' farmer's walk 70#/hand
10 push ups


Spartan WOD 1.22.13

The WOD was to set a goal of how many burpees completed in a day. My total was 100. I did 40 in the afternoon, and 60 post workout. I wanted to do the 60 unbroken but that was an epic fail....:biglaugh:

Re: Mike's Mad Log

I felt relly energetic today. Must be the change in diet and adequate sleep. It all seems to work!!!;)


I did the Spartan Race WOD which was to run 3 to 5 miles with negative splits. I ran 4 miles in 37:14. My split times were 10:02, 9:27, 9:06 and 8:36. Of course it wouldn't be a Spartan WOD w/o burpees.....:p 30 burpees after the completion of the run.

15 Curtis press 75#

I had forgotten how much of a workout this exercise provides. Good stuff.

3 rds on the heavy bag with 60:15 splits

Spartan 300 Abs routine

I'm planning on doing some sort of core building exercises everyday. Since my back and hip went out, again, I want to make sure that I strengthe and maintain my core.

I did an hour of Xtreme Boxing with a bit of Turbo Kick. My friend and instructor recently received her certification, so she worked our tails off!!! Good times!:D

Re: Mike's Mad Log


My visit to the physical therapist revealed that I have some slight issues with my SI joint and L2/L3 vertebrae....He said that I can continue to be active but to lay off the heavy stuff for a while.

Gave me some painful, yet excellent stretches and drills to do. We made a goal to get me back to where I want to be. A minor setback in my view.....

[B]Active Rest Day[/B]

Big day tomorrow with my half marathon!!!!:pepper:

I did a ton of stretching and foam rolling. Took a brisk stroll at the park with the family to stay loose. I'm still kind of nervous about running the race.....It's my first, so I have butterflies.

Re: Mike's Mad Log


I completed my inaugural half marathon this morning. My gameplan went out the door, and I just ran a steady pace until I had to slow it down. All in all, it was a great experience.

My official finish time was 2:25:25.:kicking0:

Time for some ice and stretching.....;)

[B]Active Rest Day[/B]

DOMS set in with a vengeance!!!:evilsmile I took the day to stretch, and utilize my roller and Miracle Balls. The soreness didn't hit until early afternoon and subsided by the time I hit the sheets.

I just did a few calisthenics and tried some yoga.....:shrug:My daughter suggested it, and I think it did the trick.


I felt rejuvenated today!!:pepper:
