Work Work Work

weight-in: 216.5 lbs

Another new low today. I'm kinda beat today. The last two days I've done the following:


-ran 5k in the AM
-did manual labor in the evening for 3-4 hours
-started new lifting routine at night, chest and bicepts

- ran 5k in the AM
-did manual labor for 5 hours, including moving a clothes washer down a flight of stairs.
- lifted again, shoulders

This morning:
-ran another 5k

In addition to all that my eating has been light as I've been so busy. My caloric intake was probably slightly lower than it should have been, hence to new lowsThe good news is that I am still drinking a LOT of water, over 100 ounces a day which is good.

Over the next few days I'm going to make sure I get all the nutrients I need and spend a little time recovering. I won't stop running, but I might tone it down slightly in addition to letting my muscles recover from the lifting and hard work I've been doing.

That's all I've got today, I'm late for a meeting.

have a great day!

Damn, dude. Your daily 5k is impressive! Keep it up. Be sure to eat enough, though. :)

Seriously, is it even possible to "tone down" the workouts that you're doing right now? On paper they don't look too taxing, but what do I know ;).

Actually it sounds like a little R&R is in order for you.

That's awesome. Just crank it out.

Nice on the new low. Make sure you feed your muscles so that your evening lifting isnt for not. Muscles growth is very dependent on nutrition.
