I'm re-doing the program to fit as a 4days/week program instead of 7days/week because I don't have the time for 7day workout because of my job. Instead, I'll be gimping it to cover all different sections in four days while making the intervals a little lighter (doing everything one rep instead of two) so that I can combine it good with my running and cycling.

    I have a race on the 28th of August. I'm not sure if I'll go for 4.5km and trash the others or 8.9k and fight for it.

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    American mile? Umm, a little under eight minutes, but that's when I run longer distance (5.6-6.6 miles). I run it in about six minutes when I run shorter distances (like 2.3-3.3 miles) so nothing crazy here alright. As a matter of fact, I'm kinda slow >,>

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    Blai, by your standards I would be really slow.

    See, when I purely run the mile, my record is barely under six

    Also, yeah, I've kinda left my training a bit late, my race is on the 22nd

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    Hm - when I was twelve, I was running a mile in 9 minutes in a 2 mile run. These days, that's probably how long it would take me to run a quarter of a mile or something lol.

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    Hah. Great minds think alike. I've tried. It helps. In a very painful and insane way. I had 1x10lb ankle weight on each, and could barely run 4km before dying. It burned so bad, you're lungs won't even feel any stress because you're going so slowly.
    For reference, running 10km on flat ground doesnt burn my legs at all.

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    Actually, I suggest putting as heavy as possible and when you're running lifting your upper legs with the proper running form and pushing off with your calves with full power. Cause just today I took em off to test the results and my stride lenght is insane and the speed is crazy too It feels really light and powerful. But then again, I've been wearing them constantly for a while now...

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    I never ever voluntarily do burpees.

    You, are insane. They are like the incarnation of self flagellation or something. Sooo haaard.

    Oh, but do you do the pushup in between each rep as well?

    Re: The Getting in Shape Thread

    Okaaay.
    so I've been walking for at least(checks thread)
    2 to 3 months now ( I took a 2 week break because of holidays back then)
    and so far I've dropped from 110kg to 103kg-104 or somewhere there.
    so it's 6kg in 3 months, around 2kg per month. Not sure if I'm accurate.
    I eat breakfast at 10, skipped lunch(sometimes I have a little bread for snack) and have a light dinner.
    Of course, walk home every weekday for 75 minutes or so.
    So far so good but it's kindda slow but I blame myself for getting tempt occasionally and eating what I'm not suppose to.
    Cooking by myself helps alot.
