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?

    Pavement run:
    2.00 miles @ 20:25 ... PR is 18:53
    First mile split: 10:15

    ME Situps
    x40

    Pushups
    x30

    Long run today (long for me)... Ran after dark so it was nice and cool though. I kicked it up a notch at the end and probably knocked off about 45 seconds. Without that I would have been feeling decent but I ended up being pretty tired.

    Pavement run:
    1.5 miles @ 13:15

    Temp: 88 degrees

    Pretty tough run today but I'm glad to be within 45 seconds of my PR. The heat doesn't help much but I was definitely feeling fatigued and very gassed at the end. Just need to keep at it.

    Thanks, men.

    Pavement run from yesterday:
    1.00 Miles @ 7:55

    Pretty sure that's a PR. I don't recall ever running under an 8 minute mile but I'll have to check the record books. That was way too hard to do though and I have a long ways to go. Started off strong the first .5 but I got super gassed and probably went from 9 MPH to 6 MPH or so.

    Run yesterday:

    Pavement run with my buddy (marathon runner)
    3.85 miles @ 36:55 ... This is a distance PR. I have never gone over 3 miles and we ran 3.85. Pace was 9:35/mile. That was hard as all hell and my calves and tib antierior were so packed with lactic acid I could barely move them at the end of the run.

    Run yesterday...

    Pavement run:
    1.5 miles @ 12:20 ... PR is 12:30, 10 sec PR. Effings gassed afterwards.

    3.85 @ 36:55 the other day as well as a swim the day after of 10 laps/500 yd @ 11:55 or something. Wish these posts would show up.

    PS - just so anyone knows.. It takes my posts about 2-4 days to show up most of the time for some reason and there's nothing they can do about it. Kinda sucks but just an FYI for the delays in response or whatnot.

    K so here are some workouts from this week that I don't know if they are ever gonna show up from my other account. It was marked in the spam storm accidentally so all my posts need to be 'reviewed' before showing up in threads so it takes forever.

    Workout 1

    Pavement run w/ my buddy:
    3.85 miles @ 36:55 - .85 mile PR for distance. Definitely was wrecked afterward. There was so much lactic acid in my tib anterior that I could barely move my ankles.

    Workout 2

    Chins - alternating neutral and palms out
    x5
    x5
    x5
    x4 + 1 cheat
    x1 + 4 negatives

    Dips
    x10
    x10
    x10
    x10
    x10

    Cable Ab Pulldowns
    200x12
    200x12
    200x12

    Swim - Breast stroke
    500 yds/10 laps @ ~11:50 (IIRC)

    Workout 3

    Pavement run:
    1.5 miles @ 12:20... +10 sec PR! Officially have met my goal of getting a 12:51 1.5 mile for police testing. Now just to further improve on my cardio abilities.

    Dawn bro, I wonder what went wrong with your other account. We worked so hard to get our post count up whoring out the journals back in the day! Haha.

    Nice running dude, the distance will come quick. I remember my first 6 mph pace run (1-2 months ago), I could not go past 15:00. I held it for 60:00 last night!

    Wow, that's awesome - can't be satisfied though, have to go for more.

    Great to see you making it happen this way.

    Yeah Bako I know bro, I am keeping that old account though for sure in hopes that they can get it fixed someday. It got banned accidentally when they were mass-banning for the spam storm and it hasn't been the same since it got re-instated. I have 2 e-mails so I'm using my alternative for this account for now. Wow man, a 6 mile run in one hour is pretty damn awesome. I will continue to look towards you for some motivation for myself in my cardio quest...

    Coke, thanks brother. You got that right, now that I've met one goal just have to set more and more and keep going at it. Thanks for the words and continued support man.

    Wrong mindset today during cardio. Was wanting to do 2 miles and hit a PR on the treadmill. I then noticed about 1/4 of the way through my calves were already giving in and I remembered I didn't take my BA and Creatine mix pre workout. The placebo kicked in and I decided to just finish out the mile.

    Treadmill :
    1 mile @ 8:20

    Tae Kwon Do :
    60 minutes, pretty intense. Good workout - sweat my balls off.

    Will try to make up for the shoddy cardio tomorrow with a good BW workout and a swim or run.

    Swim today...

    Breaststroke:
    5 laps, 250m @ 6:00

    Varied stroke... (side stroke, back and breast)
    5 laps, 250m @ 6:20

    Was going to BW lift but I was exhausted. Tried to focus on fixing my breaststroke kick today and it was hell. I scissor kick instead of frog kick and it hurts my aerodynamics in the water (aquadynamics?). I actually need someone to teach me. Oh well, still makes me stronger.

    Lol, aquadynamics. I gave up swimming, I think you definitely need a coach for that.

    Cindy is, as many rounds in 20:00 of - 5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 air squats. Try it sometime.

    What do you do when you can't do 5 pullups? 5 negatives?

    Well I did Cindy for you and it was fu*king hard. And pretty awesome.

    Cindy CrossFit...

    Rounds of 5 Pullups, 10 pushups, 15 BW Squats - Most in 20:00

    1: Full round
    2: 1 Assisted Pullup
    3: 4 Assisted Pullups
    4: 5 Assisted Pullups
    5: 5 Assisted Pullups
    6: 5 Assisted Pullups
    7: 5 Assisted Pullups
    8: 5 Assisted Pullups
    9: 5 Assisted Pullups
    10: 5 Assisted Pullups

    Finished - 14:15

    Totals: 10 full pullups, 40 assisted pullups, 100 pushups, 150 BW squats.

    TKD: YulGok:

    10 reps of first half @ ~50%

    Supposed to go to 20:00 but I called it because my pullups were getting pathetic. I would just jump up and dead weight would fall back down. Wasn't even able to resist on the negative after round 9. Pretty good stuff though.

    Lol good effort big guy. Cindy is truly a bitch.

    I think my best is like 18 or 19 rounds. Kipping helps.

    Thanks dudes... I can't kip on my basement bar. It's only like 7.5-8 feet off the ground so I have to grab n' drop (with knees bent) to get full ROM if you know what I mean. I have to jump+pull and focus on negatives is about my only option when I run out of gas. But negatives are better than nothing. How many rounds do you do before kipping Rick, or do you kip at the beginning to preserve juice?
