Been gone a couple years. Seems to be a ghost town.
I?m back though. Training, older now and recovery takes longer.
Now I am teaching the next generation though.

Be safe all.

Get some shoes, and start doing some running. If there are obstacles, go over, not around. Gradually, add speed and distance. Keep doing it, and you will lose weight.

Go at your pace, and listen to your body. Also, bodyweight exercises. Pull ups, push ups. Get strong man.

Haven't had much time to post here.
Family was waylayed with a cold. I am getting over it.
On some meds now because it may be in my chest.

And nursing my poor, sick, pregnant wife back to health.

Not much road time, but I am on the 100 day burpee challenge
along with my other cals I have been doing around the house.
I expect it to become painful somewhere around day 30-40.

Ready for winter to be over.

I was gonna say good luck, but the harder people work, the better luck they have.
I'm right there with you. I got off track recently after dropping a bunch of weight last year.
Now I got some new stuff lined up, and I gotta get in gear, so I know how you feel.

Keep up the good work!

Been busy with work and family stuff a lot, so I haven't had much time to play around
here and post. Since you heard from me last, I have been working a lot
with fore-foot running, and working through the discomfort of dis-used muscles
bing active again. And QM. QM all day long with my son following me. (He's 2 and his precisions are sick)

 30 min running about town. Slow, concentrating on technique.
 Precisions in the parking lot. 15x
 QM and QM push ups.

I asked the Hulk about this.
he said: "Hulk think no such thing as too muscular. You should see Hulk's Kong. Is off the hook."

 The past few days, I really started focusing on my diet again.
As much as I hate it, it has always been like that. Even in the Marines,
one of my best friends hated the fact that I could bulk easily. Run, lift, eat,
get huge. I never had to work at it.

 I always had to work against it.
 Such is my lot in life.

 So, I went back to the old low carb way of eating that I felt best with.
 I always hated it because I love to bake bread.
 But, for what I want, it is a love that will need to be in moderation.
 And I am giving it up for now.

 And, I was looking around over at EMI and I realized my goals suck.

So, here are my new goals.
 They are quasi long term, but where I want to get.
 People working for the govt. might recognize them.
 I don't NEED to hit them right now to move into this line
of work, but there is absolutely no point in aiming low.

So, goals:
Long term:
1. 58+ sit ups in a minute (not because I advocate sit ups, but because that is the max score, and I am close already.)
2. 300m sprint in 40 sec.
3. 71+ push ups. (getting close to that one)
4. 10:30 Mile and a half. (doable, I used to have a 3 mile at just over 21 minutes. But that was a knee surgery ago)

Short term:
1. 50+ sit ups in a minute
2. 300m 50 sec.
3. 60 push ups.
4. 12:00 mile and a half
5. lose weight.
6. perfect natural running (getting much better. no more heels!)

Changes made:
 1. No processed carbs. Skipping bread, sugar, donuts, etc.
 2. Drink more water.
 3. Drink more herbal tea over coffee. ( it.)
 4. Limit alcohol. A lot...
 5. Lean protein sources.

 Daily work:
 With my work schedule, it has been hard to fit stuff in, but I can do better.
 There has been a lot of peacemeal things. Grabbing some QM whenever I can.
 20 KB swings whnever I walk past it.
 Push ups at random times.

 I think I am going to put myself back into the habit of the Crossfit WOD or
our WOD and running.
 I just need to remember it is more important to get out and just do it.
 Whatever I have time for.

 On to doing.

Yep, just take it all indoors if you have to.

Push ups, pull ups, dips. Put your feet up on stuff,
put your arms up on stuff.

I'm gonna try to keep running outside,
but when it gets much under 30, I wuss out and go in.

I don't have a platoon commander making me run in 11 degree weather
anymore, so I don't make myself. lawl. Maybe I should though.
Bundle up and do laps on the track till the sun comes up and the earth
warms again.

I hated that.

12/2 My friday.

 I took a few days off. Feeling better now though.
 Spent most of this week working on running
 By correctly, I mean on my toes/midfoot.
 I wear sambas all the time, so not having to
change shoes to run in is nice.

 Also, my calves, hammies are screaming.
 Could also be the fact that I walk on the
 balls of my feet whenever i'm barefoot.
 Which is most of the time.

 Did firewood today. Lots of firewood.

edit: At work
       Arm circles, forwards and back 50x
       Rail shimmy, up and down fire escape.
       Precisions. 6' in boots. 20x (mark to mark, nothing amazing)

I just got mine this weekend too.
Haven't had the time to really play with it,
but what I saw so far was interesting.

My god there's a lot of fluid in my knee right now. Just thought I'd share.

That sucks man? What happened?

as for me, I was planning to have a really awesome workout tonight, after work,
but now I'm on a double. (16 hours instead of 8)

California / Re: Any groups in or near Monterey?

I was stationed out at monterey from late 99-2001 (clearance hold)
 I loved that friggin place.

 I bet you could have a lot of fun at the Del Monte center.
 and then again, you can run the Asilomar (all 11 miles of it)
 there is a lot of fun stuff there.

 But, there were enough fun places to run up there, and enough
walls to play with.

 I just wish I was into PK when I was there.
 Have fun squid!

yeah, with BDU's you need a belt. Even elastic waisted ones don't stay
where I like them. That is my major gripe with most pants is the feeling that
they are trying to fall off.

so tactical style (bdu, tac pants etc) = functional comfortability and usefulness for me,
but I need a belt. Also tons of pockets.

Also, rabid for a pair of KSOs right now. I started running in my climbing shoes a while back,
and I liked them. Then the stability thing in them broke (due to being climbing shoes) and
it started to piss me off.

11/25 My friday
My legs felt smoked from the squats.
Excited for the weekend.

11/26 my Saturday

11/27 my Sunday
 Shopping with the wife and kids!
 Avoiding aggressive deal hounds and protecting the family!

and today
11/28 my Monday
 Been feeling sick the last few days.
 I think it's a bug, because everyone else
 has been feeling poorly.
 Helped my father in law move wood. (trees)
 Luckily, i am a large primate and can move trees.

Off my game this week. virtually no running. bleh.
I think all that overtime I worked messed me up,
but it's no excuse.

this week goal= Run more, continue eating better.

And sit on your throne, your crown sitting on a troubled brow,

Also, have a pilot friend to drop supplies. So you may want to balance a helipad up there too.

they have awesome deals. Always check closeouts!!
I actually get a lot of uniform items from them, as well as my tactical stuff.

Hmm instead of a sandbag I would use a weighted vest just because running around an urban environment with a hefty sandbag could lead to some bad back problems

 That would be best. But carrying something with you is a good functional training idea. Maybe not a sandbag though.
 Like I said, we used to run with one, and a lot of it is listening to your body.

 We used to do an indian run: single file, throw pass the sandbag back through the line, last one sprints to the front.
 It sucked, but it was good times too.

also, I think I am goint to give these pants a try. I love LAPG stuff. (it is 5.11 tactical stuff more or less) Train in what you work in.

 I have my old Marine cammies I use too, but I think I am gonna buy me a few pairs of those pants. All around awesome.
