The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Quest to Success

    Purpose & Goals of this Journal

    • This is the last journal I am going to make for a long time. I feel if I keep making new journals I am not benefiting. The purpose and goal of this journal is:

      1. Keep me motivated and progress my training
      2. Keep my mind off of bad food
      3. Allow me to notice what is wrong with my training and allow me to see it and fix it.
      4. Give me a place to rant
      5. Allow me to look back later on in my life to see how this training method went compared to others.


    Stats
    • Age: 16
      Weight: 150 (10/12)
      Height: 5'10 (10/12)
      Mile: 5:39 (10/1)

    Ramblings Worthy of Note
    • Today was a horrible day, did my cardio this mourning and felt good but then just got a horrible headache and felt dizzy and just ate whatever I want from then on. Im feeling a little better now, but I guess im not wrestling 145 tommorow, nothing wrong with 152 and I should be strong there at least. I figured out that this season I can't cut water weight, I CAN'T DO IT. If that means going 140 then so be it. Just thinking about cutting out water gives me the chills, I think I have a headache becuase I was trying ti regulate my fluids today. Even if I go 152 tommorow I still have to watch what I eat because with food in me I can get up to that much weight, I hate wrestling because of this. When I put my head down I feel this bloodrush going to my head, I hope it is gone by tommorow.

    10:00-10:35am Ran 3 miles

    • Had a ok day, I wrestled 152, there was 5 kids in weight, 145 had like 9 and 160 had like 12+ kids. But I wrestled like horrible and felt so wierd out on the mat, I lost my first one to a pretty good kid 4-0 but I could of hammered him, one my second one vs. a scrub for 3rd place.


    Exercise

    1:30-5:00pm Wrestled 2 matches
    • Comments:
      Felt like crap after the first match, so wasted. I thought I was in good shape too, I think my conditioning is ok, I just need to get into wrestling shape. Nothing can do that but wrestling. It is going to be hard for me to wrestle during soccer season but once the end of the season comes I should be able to get a to practice twice a week. Im going to see if my friend wants to roll arond on his mat once a week for now, but he weights 189.
