    My Fitness Logs.

    Hi guys, Don't know if this is the place to put it but I want to post a fitness log somewhere in the hope of getting encouragement adn motivation given I am an extremely unmotivated person.

    The way I am gonna do this is I am gonna post my logs for, Running, and general exercise, the Training program I am using is roughly the Royal Marines one, well the one on the website.

    I will post in the format of

    Run
    Distance -
    Time -
    Details-
    *link to route taken, shown on MapMyRun*

    Circuits
    Push-ups: Set 1, Set 2, Set 3.
    Tricep-dips: Set 1, Set 2, Set 3.
    etc...

    I will not be running every day, and I will not be doing circuits every day, but I will be doing one of them everyday at least. Sometime both.

    I am gonna start with back when I got back into training last monday.


    Monday - 12 January 2009

    Run
    Distance - 2.6 miles
    Time - 29.15 mins
    Details - This was my first run in over a month I had put on around 2 stone since 3 weeks before Christmas, and I realised just out of shape I was, had to run, then walk, run, walk, many times on Monday, very disconcerting and I wanted to just give up then.

    Tuesday - 13 January 2009
    Run
    Distance - 2.6 miles
    Time - 27.45 mins
    Details - Much the same as the last time, shorter more brik walks when needed, kept going though felt good. Same route.
    Link - http://www.mapmyrun.com/run/ireland/cork/299080166361

    Gym
    Went to the Gym with a friend, was checking it out to see if I would join, built a good sweat, and kept going, but I don't really like Weight's machines, they are very annoying, so I don't think I will go regularily and I will just stick with Runs and circuits.

    Wednesday - 14 January 2009

    Originally planned for this to be a rest day, but decided to do circuits late in the day. I can't remember all I did, but I will put roughly what I did. I realised that day I had lost alot of upper body strength as well.

    Circuits
    Push-ups: 15, 13, 10.
    Squats: 20, 25, 20.
    Lunges: 20, 25, 20.
    Situps: 25, 20, 18.
    Knees to chest: 15, 12, 12.
    Half-sits: 15, 13, 13.
    Tricep dips: 20, 23, 20.
    *note: I did more things but I can't remember what, will keep notes in future.*

    Friday - 16 January 2009

    Run
    Distance: 2.6 miles
    Time: 26.15 mins
    Details: I was quite happy with this run, went as long as I could before walking a bit, and continuing, Still, I knew I wanted it less. It was also lashing raining and I was soaked through before I even started my warmup, I was highly surprized with my time. Same Route.
    Link - http://www.mapmyrun.com/run/ireland/cork/299080166361

    Saturday - 17 January 2009

    Run
    Distance: 2.6 miles.
    Time: 24.09
    Details: I was happy as Larry with this, I still want the time reduced alot further, but I feel I really pushed through a pain barrier today, even if only because I needed a shite!!! I did the route backwards because I needed to get water, so in fairness it was easier than normal because I ran over the Humpback bridge near where the end of my route usually is, so the bridge was at the start, possibly accounting for the extra 2 mins off. but I was still happy with it, I walked alot less today I think, I am aiming to cut another minute off tomorrow.
    Link - http://www.mapmyrun.com/run/ireland/cork/299080166361 *route Taken Backwards*

    I may do some circuits today, I have yet to decide, If I do I will edit this post.

    If anyone has any tips, advice, motivation, or anything to say, please do!!! I could definitely use some objective criticism.

    Thanks for reading, or not reading, I just need to keep a log somewhere!!!
    Gav.
    I probably am wrong, sorry about that!!!

    Please PM me to correct me.

    But, not if I state an opinion, only if I state something as truth!!!

    I have bad opinions but I stick by them!!!

    Sunday - 18 January 2009

    Run
    Distance: 2.6 miles
    Time: 22.47 mins
    Details: I was dead happy with this time today, I was after a large feed of drink last night so I though I wouldn't be able to keep going very long, but this has definitely been my best run since I started. Not just timewise, but I also just kept going, kept running, I only walked 4 or 5 times, and never walked more than 50 Meters. I can feel myself getting fitter, and my body is developing a rythym for Sleeping and pooping. I have possibly developed a small injury in my Shin, but tomorrow is a rest day anyway so I should be good to go on Tuesday.

    If you find you have to walk/run do, it will actually help with fitness, I think it called interval training - it will help with speed (same with jogging/sprinting).

    Since the week before Christmas I've been been a run around the block (2.06 miles according to mapmyrun) 2/3 times a week. There are 2 long & steep hills involved and it brillant to see the times coming down (even 10-15 seconds). I've had 1 takeaway in 3 weeks (usually once a week), haven't had a drink since New Years morning (usually a fair bit more than that) and am eating more fruit instead of sh*te.

    We are starting weekly circuit training with RDF in a couple of weeks.

    Make sure you build in rest days!

    I've also purchased a TENS/EMS/Massage machine (Lidl €30, Tesco is also doing one) GOOD INVESTMENT - great for the aches & pains!!!

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    Thanks for the support lads.

    I am just gonna post some of my goals here so I can see if I can attain them, and the added pressure for people on here knowing me, may help, given that I do my best Work under Pressure.


    1 Week - I want to be to run my route without stopping, in 20 mins or less,
    2 Weeks - Same but in 18 mins.
    3 Weeks - Complete 4 miles in 45 mins or less, some walking allowed if necessary.
    6 Weeks - 4 miles, No stopping 32 mins or less.


    I have decided to belay the Circuit training for 2 weeks, until I can get my Running set in at 18 mins for 2.6 miles.

    Today I have nothing to Post really, as it is a deserved rest-day. Back on tomorrow, gonna try my best to make it halfway without walking. I am aiming for 22 mins.

    Thanks for the suggestions lads, I will be getting a new pair of running shoes during the week.

    I have blisters from running already, but I think they will callouse over soon enough.

    Thanks,
    Gav.

    Run
    Distance: 2.6 miles
    Time: 22.42 mins
    Details: This run was the smallest time gap since I started this log, but I can attribute that to Very slick Ice on my path, I have no doubt I would have gone faster if it were not for the Ice. I only walked 4 times for with the total walking distance being no more than 100 meters. I did not attain my goal of going halfway without stopping, but if it weren't for the Ice I would have as I was forced to walk the humpback bridge near the start of the run. I am not entirely happy with todays run, but I know where I went wrong, I went much to early in the morning. Tomorrow I am going to wait until around 12 o Clock.

    This thread is dangerous.

    It made me feel bad and go for a run yesterday and I did a very silly thing. I picked a 1.85 mile run in the howling wind and rain with a 160 foot climb. The ascent went into the 10% range.

    However, my breath tasted of blood afterwards. How painful. Never again.... *heads back to a nice indoor flat treadmil*

    Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

    This thread is a fantastic idea!

    Dazzler, if you don't mind my asking, what age are you...?


    In september, in order to ensure Grade 1 standard for out POT's course fitness tests(grade 1=3.2km run in under 12mins 35 seconds, over 55 pushups in a minute, over 55 sit-ups in a minute and 10k loaded march in under 93mins). So we started jogging mondays, wednesdays and fridays. On tuesdays, thursdays and saturdays I would do push ups, sit ups and other exercises I gradually added to aid me in attaining my goal...
    Well I'm looking at my progress sheets now and I'm sorry to say that in mid december I became very, very stricken with the flu. I'm not the type of person who gets sick often and when I do I usually just get run down for a day or two. But I was very sick for two whole weeks.
    By the time I started recovering it was full swing in christmas so I said leave training until I went back to college and got back into a routine(dunno about everybody else, but I find it incredibly difficult to train unless I'm in a routine of some sort).
    Went back to college on the 8th and got a nice weeks training done, taking off easy, my stats having dropped significantly. Last thursday I felt like I was getting the flu again, I couldn't believe it. And on sunday I was diagnosed with chicken-pox. Of all things to be stricken with when you're 19.
    So in effect, since the start of september, I'm after losing my grade 1 stats(the run wasn't grade 1 yet, but it was starting to get close again).
    I'm still covered in these stupid chicken pox and confined to home, bored all day. I tried some push-ups today just to see how I went, terrible, totally woeful...



    JNS, that really doesn't sound good. Has it ever happned before(the tasting blood)?

    it doesn't really sound great does it



    (It may also be due to the fact that I just ate a meal with slightly raw and bloody lamb chops that I couldn't finish due to the blood, but I do love drama!)

    Sometimes people mistake a bloody taste in there mouth for

    what is in effect an irony taste

    the irony taste comes from oxygen deprivation

    from hitting a high range of cardio vascular activity

    this in itself is a good thing depending on your training regeime

    The fact you ran up a higher hill and combatted against the wind

    suggests the CV o2 deprivation

    dont do it constantly vary the regeime

    but then again you may have in fact chucked a half raw bit of lamb
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Keep up the effort.

    Here's a post from my blog I did for last years Commando Speed March

    On related news. I found that my right knee was suffering from last nights run. Got paid yesterday so off I went to invest in some decent running gear.

    My place of call was "The Edge" sports shop on Norht Main St, Cork.

    I explained to them what I was training for and showed tham my old runners (after being soaked in Febreeze ) and aslo my parade boots and matherhorn boots.

    After looking at the wear patterns, the lady helping me, Jill, saw that I had a moderately pronating gait. Basicly, when my heal hit the ground it would rotate inwards further than it should before lifting again. She explained that with weight, this would become even more pronounced.

    So after explaining the basic personal bio-mechanics of my feet, she got me to step onto a foot sizing plate. Basicly its a flat plate with that thermal covering on it that goes different colours when pressure and heat are applied. From this she explained that my arches were slightly unsymmetrical. Now this is common but my case even from what I saw, it was a more than obvious. on the right foot.

    Then came the video analysis of my running gait. Up and down the shop floor while being tracked by slow motion camera.

    Now how much for all this - ZERO, nothing, nada.

    Jill offered to show me running shoes if I was interested. I could have come out of the shop not buying anything at all. But I wanted to save my knee some pain so asked to see some of what the shop had to offer. Jill asked me to try on 4 pairs of runners designed specifically for my foot condition of pronating, and again each pair was analysed using the camera.

    One pair was quite comfortable and the feel in the difference was obvious. I felt a HELL of a lot easier to run and even stand.

    Now your probably thinking: Jebus, they're going to be expensive, but no. Turned out to be 110euro. No more than what you'd pay for fashion trainers in Lifestyle or any other shop.

    On top of all that, she threw in a free sports bottle and they were having a sale so I bought some other stuff and received 25% off.

    The overall service and quality of information was exceptional. I know this sounds like an ad for the shop, but the service deserves the mention. I can't recommend it enough to anyone doing any bit of training where you need proper running shoes or other gear from running to cycling to swimming. Fantastic place.

    Hi lads and lady.

    Thanks for all the advice, adn I am happy to see this thread is getting other people motivated as well!!!

    Zulu, I will check that place out next week, sounds like exactly what I need!!! Master, will also Check out J Buckeys. Might as well shop around.


    Wednesday - 21 January 2009

    Run
    Distance: 2.6 miles
    Time: 21.57 mins
    Details; This I found hard, I really did, it was a miserable day, and I just didn't want to Keep goin, but I did nonetheless, because I knew I needed to battle through all sorts of weather if I want to achieve my Ultimate Goal(some of you may know what this is, I will not state it here though.). I did achieve my first minor victory, in fact it is 2 minor goals passed, I didn't walk until a good bit past the Halfway point, (may not actualy be the halfway point but it is such a sharp change I refer to it as such), and I completed the run in less than 22 mins. I am happy, but feel I could have done better had I not eaten McDonalds last night, but I did, so whatever.

    Thanks for the support lads.

    I can see my times now falling at a slower pace, which while disheartening I will have to overcome. It is much better for my motivation to see me shave 2 mins than it is to shave 45 seconds, but I know that it is the way it will be.

    Thanks again lads.

    Time: 23.43 mins
    Details: I knew before I went out that this was not going to be a great run. Started as always with a 15 minute warm-up but wasn't feeling to great, I don't know why, it seemed like a mental block. Started my run, and I knew straight away there was something off about the day. I started feeling minor Muscle Fatigue early in the run, within the first 300 meters. but I kept going, I got to a good bit past the halfway mark, and walked a bit, I tried to run more, but couldn't get into it. I walked at least a quarter of the run. I am not happy with myself. I am also feeling shin splints (or what I think are shin splints). All in all I am very disappointed in myself about todays run.

    I will not be running tomorrow because I am going to Carlow tonight on the urine, and then heading out as well tomorrow night, I will probably go SUnday, but I am thinking of leaving off until monday, in case I do have Shin Splints.

    I may go running with a friend on Monday, for extra motivation, as I am getting complacent when running, which is another possible reason I stopped.

    Thanks for reading lads.

    I probably am wrong, sorry about that!!!

    Please PM me to correct me.

    But, not if I state an opinion, only if I state something as truth!!!

    I have bad opinions but I stick by them!!!

    Sunday 25th January

    Started back today doing jogging on the Curragh plains. Have been out of
    touch for a while between Xmas and recuperation from an op, so was
    feeling it.

    A mate has been egging me for ages to go out with his group on
    a Sunday morning jogging on the Curragh plains, but I haven't been
    brave (dumb !!!) enough to do it until today. He headed off happy as
    Larry on a 10 mile (made my eyes water when he said it) route.

    I was brought on a 4 mile circuit and felt it !!! I had to walk at times
    as I was running out of gas, but the legs were doing OK. Was a pleasant
    change from running on a hard road surface, where the legs have certainly
    been feeling it afterwards.

    The runners got muckied up, but I struggled around in 45 minutes, so hopefully
    am going to combine doing this circuit once a week, or maybe twice, if I'm brave
    enough, along with road running and the DFTC circuit training, which is on Tues/Thurs
    at lunchtime in DFPES.

    I certainly hope to see an improvement in my time around a 3.2km route, which
    I had been doing in 17 minutes, before Christmas.

    Will let ye know how I'm going .....

    Dazzler, you mention shin splints....

    Maybe consider alternative footwear - am assuming that you are doing road running ?
    Also, as Zulu mentioned above, there are places which will measure your foot arches and
    manufacture up shoe inserts to suit. A mate of mine in work said he got this done, and
    hasn't looked back since...

    I'd also consider low impact cardio exercise (eg cycling/swimming)

    Keep up the good work Dazzler. Hope to start back training shortly, recovering from knee op (torn cartlidge). Too much road running I am told (have completed 5 Dublin marathons and other 20,15,13 and 10 miler runs). With regard to shin splints try running on softer ground ie forest runs or football field this may help prevent getting them.
