  1. I finally realized that I've become a fat slow slob. I'd like to change that but I don't want to do things randomly.

    Unfortunately, all I could google were training plans for a specific distance. But I want to get faster in the 5k and the mile and the 400m. I understand the progress will be much slower when training for all of those distances simultaneously compared to just one at a time but I'm okay with that. I don't aim to compete.

    Any advice?

  3. Just returned from track.

    400 in 81
    1500 in 6:45

    So pathetic lol. I'm pretty sure I ran better times as a third grader.

    I'll leave the 5k for tomorrow.

    Interval training, 3 to 4 times per week. There are online schedules which will help you improve
  5. Practice; but weights > cardio anyways

  6. Yeah. I'll build upon and add in some short sprints.
    In retrospect, fuck that. I'm pretty sore after yesterday. I think I'll postpone my 5k time trial until I've trained for some time. No need to kill myself for a day or two just to learn how much I currently suck.

    I went for an easy run instead. 4k @ 6:14 pace

  10. Sprints

    The shins and the left knee are protesting such treatment. I hope I didn't snap anything up.

  11. Legs healed overnight so let's keep going.
    15 min bis, tris, abs
    15 min plyo HIIT

    I grabbed the cardio routine from a female youtuber thinking it'll be easy... My form deteriorated quickly and I ended up completely fried and even though the original routine was 20m, I had to cut it down to 15. Welp.

  14. Easy run [email protected]:00

    Turns out that after relapsing and drinking the body regenerates slower. How surprising.

    Don't worry, you are doing fine. It is maybe not just the drink; I notice that you have been working out like everyday. You also need to to take some days off, let the body recuperate.

  16. Woah, I lost 70lb! (My back probably weighed 70lb)
  17. I heeded Paul's advice and took two days off. It seemed like eternity but now I think at least one rest day is justified.

    The whole thing twice.

    Shins hurt for a few moments but overall easy stuff.
