The warrior dash is $65 total and you get a shirt, horned hat, beer mug with beer and food. If you finish the race and complete all the obstacles you get a medal as well. I'm not doing it for that though, there is always a bigger meaning behind the stuff like this. The money goes to St. Jude's Children's Hospital so it's for the kids. One of my weak spots. The people that I'm training aren't paying me either.

Well once I get the Warrior Dash done I am going to start training for another event....
The USMC Mud Run.
USMC Ultimate Challenge Mud Run

It looks like a bunch of fun and, for me at least, seems to give me something to shoot for instead of just working out and not having a real goal. I mean yeah I could increase various exercises, but to me that just gets old...
Anyone up for it????

I am still training, mostly Army Ranger stuff. Lots of running, rucking, push ups, pull ups, dips, situps, flutter kicks, squats and then running some more. I haven't picked up a set of weights in a while. Body weight exercises are working pretty good.

So I suppose I'll bring this back from the dead as well.
To fill some of the newer people in, I do a lot of obstacle course races, military events and things of that nature...Yes even at the old age of 41 I still enjoy training hard. So here is a list of things I have planned for the rest of the year;

7/27 Hero Rush obstacle course race (5miles 18 obstacles)

7/27 Kicks for Kids 5k(3.1 mile race same days as Hero Rush)

8/1-11 Run for a Million virtual race(basically run 6 races over the course of 11 days that totals 100miles)

8/17-18 Marine Corp Memorial boot camp challenge(basically you do a 2 day Marine Corp boot camp, with screaming D.I.s and everything)

9/7 Tunnels to Towers 5k(another memorial race locally)

9/14 Go Ruck Challenge(this is 12hrs of simulated special operations training and you carry a rucksack on your back the entire time)

10/12 Marine Corp Ultimate Mudrun(6.1 miles, 32 obstacles and D.I.s telling you what to do...lol)

10/25-27 Army Ranger Challenge(this is another simulated training challenge, but it last 3 days and you only get about 2hrs. of sleep the whole time...)

I know that lol. I try but things always come up and that gets put on the back burner. I need to go the extra step and just do it consistently.

Signed up for the Summer Epic 8 Hour mtn bike relay race as a 4-person mixed team with my gf and friends, Aug 3rd.

We'll race the 3-event series together. It's a relay even, and with 4 people over 8 hours it's about 2 hours of racing each, in 35 min (or so) laps.

Not to derail this thread, but the way I work out is 12 - 16oz curls 70-100 times a day on top of 2-3lb lifts when I throw a whizzer.... then again... I need more lift opportunities (no homie-o)

I drink beer once in a while...I think I made a thread about it...lol
So I went out and got a new pair of running shoes. New Balance Minimus MT10. So far I have only run about 10 miles in them, but they seem to be a great all around road/trail shoe....Hope to have them broke in by next weekend for the Hero Rush and the Kicks for Kids.
So today's workout;

10min. warm up on bike
Front squats 8x5 185lbs(first two sets are warm up the remaining 6 are power sets)
Weighted Pull ups 5x5 55lbs(I use a belt designed for these)
Bicep curl 3x(21s) 35lbs. ( i do these different than most. I do full range curls, but change my grip position after 7 reps. Outer, normal, inner on an eazy curl bar i.e. 7 outer, 7 normal, 7 inner)
Calves 6x100 (These I do in 3 different positions, standard, toes pointing out, toes pointing in. I do these in groups of 100 each rest min then repeat)
Abs;(do these without resting between)
Sit ups 30
Flutter kicks(4 count) 50
Atomic situps 25
Knees to elbows 25
Supermans 25
Cool down with some yoga for 10mins.
What did you do?
