Especially the distance aspect of it. After conquering the BattleFrog the weekend before this race, I stayed on track with my P90X routine the 4 days of the week. Ending with YogaX on Thursday. Didn't do any running at all. I haven't done any runs for 6wks now. My concentration was on upper strength so I could conquer the obstacles and not do any more burpee's than I had too. <BR> <BR> The day sta... Mon, 25 Apr 2016 20:04:02 EST BattleFrog 2016 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6145262 3rd race of the season and 2nd OCR race. I was really excited about this one. It is approximately 8k and 25 obstacles. The environment is a lot different than a Spartan OCR. Since I am a military veteran, this more closer to home to me. It was a challenging course and also a lot of fun. Four weeks before the race I started back on my P90X Classic routine to strengthen my upper body. I felt a lot better and accomplished a lot more obstacles than I did during the Spartan. I have one week ... Mon, 18 Apr 2016 21:23:13 EST Spartan Sprint 2016 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6145253 Second race of the year was last weekend (March 12, 2016) in Houston. My first Spartan race, Spartan Sprint. Distance is usually 3 to 5 miles; 20 to 25 obstacles. I didn't really know what to expect, except I knew it would be a little muddy since it rained the week before. Because of the rain, we had to meet at a high school football stadium and enjoy a 15min ride on a school bus. A little muddy was greatly understated. It was literally a pig slop. You didn't know where any holes were. If you...

This year started with our AWESOME local 15k race "Fresh 15". Like the saying goes, "You get out what you put in." I did do my long runs on Saturdays before the race, but didn't do enough short runs. It was a hot race. My finishing time was 1:39. One minute slower than last year. <BR> <BR> My awesome daughter did her 1k. She ran all the way this year. Which figures since daddy was tired and had a huge blister on my foot. <BR> <BR> We had ... Mon, 18 Apr 2016 21:06:02 EST 2015 St Gregory 5k http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6001106 It has been a little since my last 5k run. Yesterday I participated in a local 5k race St. Gregory 5k Fun Run. I love to support this race. This year it had a different route. The 1st mile was mostly up-hill. Considering the difficulty of the route and weather being around 73 degrees I was happy with my pace and time. <BR> <BR> Distance: 3.10 <BR> Time: 26:59 <BR> Avg Pace: 8:42 min/mile <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/2d3eb96f-d3ab-493c-bfd2-a6c4c5420...

Someone forgot to inform me that it was also a obstacle race. Along the 5k course there were obstacles such as: <BR> <BR> - jump from one mudd mound to another (5 of them) <BR> - jumping into fox holes and jumping out onto a mudd mound (5 of them) <BR> - rope wall climbing <BR> - monkey bars <BR> - wall climbing <BR> - walking through 3 waste deep ponds <BR> - at the end there was a... Sun, 20 Sep 2015 23:16:21 EST Certified Personal Training advise needed.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5963929 For those of you that are certified personal trainers or being trained by one, I need some advise. Nutrition is obviously a struggle with a lot of people. If a person is on a limited budget and they need to lose weight, what is more important? Meeting daily caloric intake or meeting macros? My personal opinion and the knowledge I have, I would think meeting calorie intake is more important. <BR> <BR> What is your advise? <BR> <BR> Thank you in advance! <BR> <BR> <em>84</em> Mon, 20 Jul 2015 19:10:15 EST Truth has been revealed! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5963738 I have been going through this year by semi watching what I eat and doing my daily exercises. Some weeks are good and some are bad. Lately I have realized that I am gaining weight again. I have not done any measurements or done a weigh-in in several months. <BR> <BR> Since I have realized all of this, I needed to find out exactly what my numbers are instead of just imagining them in my head. WOW! Back up to 180lbs. RIDICULOUS! This week is starting "Ketosis" week. Calories set @ 17... Mon, 20 Jul 2015 12:28:47 EST 1st OCR race.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5941902 To break up the monotony of running 5k's, 10k's, and half marathon's, I decided to participate in a OCR (obstacle course race). Like the Boy Scout motto, "Be Prepared", this was no different. I researched a couple months ahead of time what most OCR's have and I wanted to make sure I had the right equipment for it. There wasn't going to be a lot of preparation as far as exercise goes. Continuing to eat healthy is a life style, so that wouldn't change for me either. The race is a local rac... Mon, 8 Jun 2015 17:28:06 EST Surprise Running Race http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5902430 Why was this race called a "Surprise Race"? <BR> <BR> This past Saturday was the Tyler Azalea 10k & 5k race. I usually do plan on running the 10k every year, but I didn't feel like I was really ready this year since my pace has gone down. This year my goal is to participate in more 5k's to get my speed back up before I go back to increasing my miles. We did plan on Jayleigh running though. <BR> <BR> Friday was packet pick up. On our way home I remembered that we needed to go by Acad... Mon, 30 Mar 2015 15:25:30 EST 2015 racing season has started! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5891118 Racing season starts off with a 15k. It is a local race that started last year and they did a fantastic job. It is the best running race in Tyler, Tx. The swag, shirts, and medals were AWESOME! For all of you elite runners, this is the race for you. Elite prize purse was $2,500. The elite runner finished in 45minutes this year. <BR> <BR> Anyway, back to my reality, It was sunny morning and great for running. Kinda on the chilly side (30 degrees). I optimal temp is between 40-50. M...

I didn't ever do a blog on it. It was a great race. I felt good the whole way. <BR> <BR> Time = 2:15:53 <BR> Pace = 10:22/mile <BR> <BR> Not bad for ending my year with 4 half marathons. 2015 I will return back to running my 5k and 10k's.
