    Low energy today but was able to bust out a good workout. Pushups, some light abs, and then some interval running outside. Plus a light walk in the morning.

    Love the idea! I have been exercising daily for quite a long time, but I will post my workouts, the purpose, and a quick reflection for each day in November. Currently, I am training as a cyclist with the McGill cycling team. Previously, I was a rower on the UVic Men's Rowing team for a couple years. I am not sure what my future holds, but after taking some time off a serious training regimen I plan to get back into it, with the intention to race competitively this spring.

    Wednesday, November 1st
    Workout: Road ride, with a focus on climbing hills (1.5hrs)
    Purpose: Hills are currently my weakness when it comes to cycling, my intention is to make climbing one of my strengths.
    Reflection: Spent most of the ride in the cemetery on Mt. Royal. No traffic, quiet and peaceful, interesting to observe all of the grave sites. Seemed like all the names were European.

    Thursday, November 2nd
    Workout: Core/Hip strength exercises (45 min)
    Purpose: To continue the development of lateral strength in my hips, and to reestablish my core strength. I am hoping this helps me avoid injury, and improves my ability to recruit the proper muscles for cycling.
    Reflection: Super easy to wake up and get right to it, literally did the exercises on a yoga mat right next to my bed. Listened to some Imagine Dragons, I find music can make exercising at home more enjoyable.

    Friday November 3rd
    Workout: Yoga/Flossing
    Purpose: Gotta stay supple!
    Reflection: I try to incorporate stretching as much as I can, but often it doesn't receive as much attention as it should. It feels good to start your morning off with a yoga session, mind body connection.

    Great work.

    13,000+ steps at work yesterday including hauling heavy objects.

    My weakness continues to be "unhealthy" lunches, relatively speaking. Since I'm on my feet and active at work, I get very hungry and thirsty at lunch time which usually results drinking two sodas with lunch (usually Jimmy Johns or Subway). It's not the end of the world since I burn most of it off and eat healthier on the weekends, but it would be nice if I could cut out this habit.

    I'm gonna try do some exercise every day this month starting today. I'm kinda hopeless when it comes to a workout so I did random stuff, I did 10 pushups, 5 chin-ups, 30 crunches, 10 squats, 50 jumping-jacks, rested for a few minutes then repeated the whole thing again.

    Good thread. Refreshing to see a lot of nofappers motivated to work out a lot.

    Today I did a weights session targeting lower body - deadlifts, squats, lunges etc.

    Im a competitive 800m athlete. Curious to know if nofap can benefit my sporting performance. Its not my main motive for doing nofap - but hey, if my personal best improves by a second or two because of it, Im not going to complain! Ive been on a bit of a rut recently and Im treating nofap as something that could break me out of my rut.

    Some of my sporting inspirations - e.g. Mohammed Ali - practiced semen retention for that increased aggression...

    I've actually trained 3 times in 24 hours with heavy bench press. I'm very advanced, but this is crazy even for me and I'm not feeling fatigue at the moment from it.

    Saturday, November 4th
    Workout: Run (45 min)
    Purpose: Get some exercise, normally I ride on Sat mornings but I had an engagement today
    Reflection: Body is starting to adjust well to running. Battled some plantar fasciitis this time last year so took some time away from it. Sunrise was beautiful, really helps getting into a good rhythm.
     
  15. Two short strength workouts and one longer workout at the gym (stomach, hips and thighs mostly) today.

    12km today after my really bad day in a work...
     
  17. Strength training/cardio for 20 minutes and later I did an 8K.
     
  18. Biked 12K today going from home to school and back. Later strength/cardio for about 25 minutes total. To top it off I went to the gym with my brother and ran an 8K on the treadmill.
     
  19. Did a 7 km run and also went for a long walk. Tired.

    Nice one ThisEndsToday. You training for anything in particular or just general fitness?

    Did a 5.5 mile tempo run today. First hard running session for a while. Didnt feel particularly great but not too fussed - as long as i do the training and stay injury free!
