    Keeping busy my friend!

    Monday - 15 minutes pre fatigue, 30 minutes mission. Pull Ups 26, Eight Count Bodybuilders 65, Forward Lunges 60, Leg Raises 60, Butterfly Sit Ups 42, Gracie Neck Nods 90 (these were the worst aside from the eight counts). Finished with 100 band pull aparts and 4 block weight holds per hand for time.

    Tuesday was supposed to be a ruck + sandbag movement but due to some back issues I took the day off. It was the right call, felt a lot better later on.

    I posted more in my journal, but I started and ended with just day 1. I confirmed with my car's odometer it was 8.25 miles to the McDonalds that I used as the halfway mark, so I walked 16.5 miles over 4:40 and that included a 15 minute break. I'll attempt the full three day version later, but I was pleased at how well that I recovered the next day. In fact, I went on a 10 mile bike ride and even worked in the yard. If you recall, you gave me some notes on foot care several months ago: THEY WERE VERY HELPFUL!!! I had almost decided to put off the walk until a pair of Darn Tough socks that I bought on Amazon arrived, but after looking through my sock drawer, I found a pair of SmartWool socks that I must have bought years ago for a hike that I never took.

    Great job on Murph this weekend Grouchy! Excellent effort and way to follow it up with a ruck the next day. I guess the legs weren't too smoked.

    Honestly they were crushed after those 400m walking lunges but after doing Murph and working all day, I woke up the next day and felt surprisingly better.

    I still probably pushed it a bit too much as this morning when I was doing my 20 minutes of pre fatigue running before calisthenics about two thirds in I felt a sharp tightness by my groin on the right side. Definitely unusual. It’s still felt a bit tender after flossing it and doing some mobility work so I decided to sleep on it and see how I felt. When I woke up in the afternoon, it still felt a bit dodgy so just yardwork and mobility work for the day today.

    Things got busy over the past month between work and my daughter being born. Now a dad of three and enjoying the additional dad strength gains.

    Today's workout -
    **Mobility work and light exercises to warm up.
    **Mission - Total of 50 jumping jacks, 75 crunches, 110 push-ups, 40 reps of curl/press/extension DB complex, 75 reverse crunches, 4 plank holds of 1 minute each (failed final one at 38 sec, hopped right back into it), 60 DB rows per arm (light), and 20 minutes of running on the treadmill (1.98 miles).
    **Lightweight Shoulder Workout x2.

    Later on today, 15-20 minute training run with my son and some stretching. Demolishing my old deck to make room for some new work so that will keep me busy today as well.

    Friday - 9 mile speed ruck march, minimum 10kg pack dry, boots and trousers. I was hoping to break the 2 hour mark but unfortunately I started using Strava and it didn’t track all my distance. I lost about 1000m on the way out during one section. Ended up finishing the 9 miles in 2:09:05 and did about 10 miles overall.

    Ab circuit and stretching in the evening, then pizza night.

    Monday - Mini test day. Max push ups in 1 min (41), max pull ups (7), max sit ups in 1 min (40), plank hold for 60 sec (fairly easy), and a 5 minute run for max distance (0.69 miles). I lost a few pull ups but I haven’t done a lot of them - shame on me. Everything else is improving. Finished with some circuit training - 30 TRX chest presses, 30 TRX inverted rows, 60 crunches, and a 1 mile run in just under 9 minutes.

    Tuesday - Squat pyramid 1-10 (up/down flight of steps in between each tier), then circuit training - 60 air squats, 60 lunges, 30 TRX hamstring curls, and a 1.25 mile run in 15 minutes. I was supposed to do a cool down run of 15 minutes but after my son’s baseball game I was beat.

    Wednesday - 1.5 mile warm up run in 15:02, rested a few minutes, then a 2000m (1.25 mile) timed run in 10:57. The running has definitely been improving over these past several weeks. Ab circuit before dinner (220 reps) plus stretching.

    Saturday - 3 mile run in 32:44. Kept busy all weekend doing the final demo of my deck.

    Monday - The Budd, the British version of Murph as I see it. Super hot out.

    **1 mile run in shorts and running shoes - 8:50.
    **69 reps of strict push ups, burpees, and knee tuck jumps. Took me almost 30 minutes.
    **70 reps of sit ups, ski jumps (left/right is one), and air squats.
    **Finish with 1.5 mile run in trousers and boots - 17:12.

    Timer ran from the start to the end of the run. Total time 1:12:44. That was no joke.

    Thursday - 2 mile speed march challenge for a British ruck club challenge I’m a part of. 50# ruck, 26:15. Only downside is I forgot to double check the standards before I started. I wore shorts not trousers so it was a no go.

    Friday - Same challenge and weight, 27:42. This one counted. Some core work and stretching later.

    Saturday - Circuit training. Total work - 2.75 mile run in 30 minutes, 29 dips, 16 pull ups, 30 one arm DB rows per side, and 75 air squats. Lightweight shoulder workout, core circuit (220 reps), and then stretching. Had to leave to my son’s baseball game so I didn’t have time to do the 20 minute cardio pyramid at the end.
