Level 1, Day 1 (part IV)

Max Rounds in 20 Minutes * 3 body rows * 2 push-ups * 3 squats 26 rounds Not bad overall... but i could not run because of some pain in my calves... overuse injury? Maybe. I am going to take it easy on the running this week. I had to increase the angle of my body rows in order to do 3 rows / round, ...

from what you posted i see a lot of carbs. if you want to see a change... cut some out. not all of them... but try to cut out about half of your daily carbs for 2-3 weeks... i will be willing to bet that your weight loss will kick in again. sometimes your body gets too comfortable with a given diet....

i've been tempted to try weighted squats and/or one-legged squats durring my workouts... the basic ones are too easy for me at level 1. An obvious imbalance in muscle groups.

good job!

ask 50 runners... you will get 50 different answers. the best answer... is breathe comfortably. when you are sprinting... you will be breathing much differently than when you are pacing yourself for a marathon. I find that when i am sprinting short distances (200 meters or less) i barely breathe... ...

Week 1, Day 2 Redux

Ok...

1/2 mile run, warm-up.

5 Rounds for time

4 Body Rows
6 Push-ups
10 Squats

7:02:47

1/2 mile run, cool down.

It was much nicer having my stop watch with me... and not guessing with my ipod.

I am also down 4 lbs (260 lbs) today. My girlfriend and i started low-carbing again on Monday.
