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?

    (2)Paleo Diet

    For those unfamiliar, basically lean meat, veggies, fruit, and nuts. No grains, wheat, cereals, dairy, cheese, beans, etc. Won't be doing protein shakes, should get enough protein from diet though. A lot of vitamins/minerals/antioxidants. I understand some criticize this diet, but I'm going to experiment with it for 2 months and make my own conclusion.


    I have no running history, but a friend bet me that I could never break sub 20 in a 5K race. The challenge is on! Since 12/4/11 I've completed 7 5K races. First time on 12/10/11 was 24:38 (7:57 pace). Set my PR on 3/4/12 with a time of 21:42 (7:00 pace).
    Will only update this section when something of note happens.

    Was pretty conservative with the weight amount today. Still getting proper form down. New to weightlifting. Only have done minimal things through sports over the years. Still struggled on the last set of each lift though. Damn Im a weakling. I've always been the kid with weird freak strength. Can't lift for shit, but can scrap with the best of em.

    Walked 2 miles on the treadmill. 30 mins. Need to get this number up.

    (2)Paleo Diet

    95% Paleo today. Had some Ritz crackers for a snack. Oops.


    Have another 5K race tomorrow AM! I've run this course before, so I'm anxious to get back out there and beat my previous time there. Don't know if a PR is in the cards, but I'll be ready to puke once I cross the finish line no doubt. Will keep everyone updated!
