Monday 12/17/12

Screw you Monday, you don’t phase me! Feeling large and in charge today. The weight is holding at 253.4 this morning, but I’m not worried. That ‘down 100 lbs’ is going to happen this week, I vow it!

All the same, knowing that I’m within 2 lbs of a major milestone helped to push me on to a good, solid workout at lunch. I nailed 3 working sets of 195 lbs on bench press today which was awesome and seeing as I cut my squats to one day a week, they’re holding strong at 255 lbs which feels good. I seem to have have a lot of folks at the gym, trainers and other members and such, keeping an eye on my goals and progress and fit feels good to start drawing some attention from some good old fashioned hard work.

This week’s plan is to take advantage of my re-found running legs and pile on some miles! This Saturday I’ll be racing in the 5k’s of Christmas in Carmel, IN which will be fun. I’m seeing some awesome times on my personal 5k’s, so let’s see if I can clock a sub 31 minute 5k on an official timer! This will be race number 4; I’ve come to enjoy the hell out of running a race and being the guy that has to swerve around all the walkers! I’ve also set my sights on this Trail Marathon in Indianapolis in January. I’ll be entering in the 6.55 mi quarter marathon if I do it. It’s a distance I haven’t raced before, (I have run it) and I’ve never run on real dirt trails before, so seems like a good icebreaker. Plus, it’s in the dark, so being able to brag to my friends that, “Yah, I ran 6 mile race, in the woods, in the dark” sounds pretty bad ass.

So there you have it, a good Monday! Christmas Miracles DO happen!
