Post Jerry's training log.

Ok I'm posting this training log for accountability and motivation! My goals are to work up to running a 5k, then to improve the time to >30 mins, followed by moving on to an 8k and then a half-marathon. Weight loss will hopefully be a secondary goal I will achieve. When I can run 5k this may also become a food log.

Training goals are on a week-by-week basis, but there will be improvement each week. There will be at least two rest days per week.

Here are my stats at the start of this training. I began around 7 days ago.

Age: 27.
Height: 5'10
Weight: 350 pounds.
Body Type: Fat.
Best ever 5k: 30 minutes.
Longest distance ever ran: 10 miles.
Best time/distance weight: 320/330 pounds.

As you can see I've ran before, but haven't been below 300 pounds since high-school. It's been a year since I've ran and I'm trying to ease my way back into it.

Last week I focused on running .6 of a mile, and walking the rest of 3.
My track is .6 miles around, so 5 times around = 3 miles. Almost 5k. I told myself that I wasn't going to start a training log until I could run a full mile.

So I did that all last week, took 2 days off. On my two days off I ended up swimming at the beach, and in a pool, and walking around downtown with friends, but I did give it a rest from running.

This morning I went out and was able to run 1.2 miles, after walking .6 for warm-up. Afterward, I walked 1.2 to cool-down.

So here is the start of my training log. Thanks for reading, feel free to comment.

This weeks goals:
Run nonstop 1.2 miles daily. Walk 1.8. Total=3 miles daily.

Today:
Woke up at 5am, ate, went running.

I walked .6 miles without a hitch, sweating a bit due to being sunburned, but otherwise fine. After the .6 mile lap was completed I set off to see if I could run a full mile. About 100 yards into the first lap I developed a horrible cramp in my upper inner thigh. Had never cramped there before even when running long distances last year, so I decided it must be some sort of freak spasm and ignored it. It went away.

At the .6 mile mark I had completed one lap around my track and was severely out of breath but decided to push on a bit farther. Halfway through the second lap I broke through this a bit and found my rhythm. I completed 1.2 miles, I felt that I slowed a little in the last quarter mile though. I then walked another 1.2 miles to cool down. Great thing though: After about 1 minute of walking I was completely recovered and breathing normally. I felt that I could run again, but I'm committed to a slow start on this to avoid injury so I stuck to the walking.

Walked 1.2 miles.
Ran 1.2 miles.
Walked .6 miles.

On 08/07/2009 I spent all day hand loading steel rails and riding a shovel.

My weight has gone up to 355 pounds since I started exercising. Of course I expected it to go up initially, but if it fluctuates higher than 5 pounds I'll be concerned. Right now I'm only checking the scales for curiosity, my only concern is how fast and how many times I can get around that track. As soon as I'm settled into running an easy 2 miles I'll try to talk myself into dieting.

Sick all week, almost well. Regardless I went running today, was afraid I had lost any progress I may have made but it actually felt easier. I guess the week off let the muscles heal up some. Walked .6 of a mile then ran 1.4. Felt like I could run more but started coughing a lot so I packed it in. Still sorta sick.

Walked 1.4 miles, ran 1.4 miles, walked .6 miles then did some unmeasured sprinting and walking. Today was my first day this go round with the sprinting, so I just did a bit to let my body know what was coming

I'm feeling good, when I finished the second lap running I felt like I could do another. I was going to move up to 3 laps next week but I may try to do it this week. Muscle stiffness is almost nill, so I think it's gonna be heart/lungs/mind from here on out, which is what I was waiting for before I really pushed it.

Edit: Also made it to the gym later that day and put in 30 mins of bag work. Nothing too intense, I just had some things I wanted to work on.

Walked .6 miles, Ran 1.8 miles(added a lap), walked .6 miles, walked/sprinted .6 miles.

I'm starting to like the walk/sprint thing. I don't think it does much for my cardio but it takes me to the edge, feels like I just finished sparring a round. Gets me used to the feeling of being completely spent, recovering, then doing it again.

Taking today off. Supposedly I get to fight at the bar tomorrow night, resting up for that. Not getting my hopes up as last time it didn't materialize. Either way after tomorrow I add diet to this log.

I've been keeping up on the running. I'm up to running 2.6 miles 3-4 times per week. Been sparring and fighting, weight is still at 355 though. I fit in heavy-bag work when I can.

I just haven't had a lot of time to post on ESB lately.

Ok got my ass kicked at a club fight the other night. Gotta take time off to let my brain heal. Devoting the 30-90 days out to dieting/cardio at home and boxing training in the gym.

I've never combined diet and exercise before, always been one or the other. Lets see how it goes. This is now a food log but I will update with some workout stuff too.
