Oh, it works. What's funny is that I was listening to Brock Lesnar's theme song while simutaneously doing the 100 pushups app. It slipped out of my armband and smacked against the pavement. I picked it up and Lesnar's face looked like Luna Vachon's with the fucking cracks on the glass. Fuck.
Keep it up. I ran about 5 miles yesterday and 4 today so I'm still packing on miles, just not on the app. I wouldn't have kept the streak alive yesterday if I didn't hit up some motivation videos on Youtube and put on the Mizuno's because I swear I ate about 20 pieces of bite sized chocolate candies (Twix, Snickers Peanut Butter, Snickers, York Mints,) and about 4 handfuls of jelly beans and I just wasn't feeling it yesterday. But when I hit the road I was flying. I guess it is true what they say about all of those African runners having ridiculous glucose intake and it benefits their runs.
On another note, I found my ideal physique for the summer bulk: Jeff Monson. I'd probably need to get up to around 215 pounds to look something like this at 5'8 and that's not going to happen because I'll probably peak at 192-195 and I don't use steroids. I'm down to 179.2 with 35 days left to complete THE STREAK. I can dream though and eat a shit ton of high starch foods, drink a lot of milk and protein, eat a lot of peanut butter, and bust my balls while cutting cardio down to a 1 mile for intensity two to three times a week.
Nice bro keep it up, you should get on the app ASAP
I'll be back on as soon as I buy a new IPod. Not on my list of priorities though. My touch screen still works to play the music controls, but as far as scrolling and whatnot it's impossible.
I hit up a run of about 3 miles today and felt pretty good as I hit my full stride early and finished in a little over 20 minutes. I'll be knocking out the hill sprints and uphill agility drills (karaokes, high knees, bear crawls, backpedals, squat jumps etc.) tomorrow for about 30 minutes. Tuesday I'll probably keep it low milage at right around 2 just to let my body recover before taking it for distance again on Wednesday.
I am thinking about purchasing a bag of dry concrete to do 1/4 mile jogs with it on one of my shoulders up to a mile for form twice a week when I'm done with THE STREAK. We used to use ratchet straps around our waists strapped to old tires to provide some resistance when I served and not coincidentally that was when I posted my all time fastest 2 mile and had legs like a roadmap.
Yea I'm thinking of buying one, I tried it at the gym and it was SO GOOD
Totally worth it. One of my favorite stretches with it is just lying on it vertically with your spine supported by the roller and your neck resting on the end and just putting your arms in an "L" shape as far back as they can go. Opens up your entire chest area.
Anyway, hit up the hills today after a 6 miler yesterday. Did two sets of lunges up hill (about 20 per leg per set). Didn't really concentrate on the agility drills as much as I just sprinted up / walked down or jogged up / jogged down for about half an hour. Brutal workout, my glutes and hamstrings are on fire. Going to go for 2 miles at an easy pace tomorrow I think.
I want this streak to be over so bad. I'll be getting a new IPod next week, FWIW.
