So the rest of today went pretty well. Normally on weekends I let my diet be a little more loose. I think I'm going to change that from now on and just stick to eating right every day.
Lunch 1 was a salad with chicken breast and assorted other veggies and tomatoes.
Lunch 2 was a rainbow roll from the sushi place
Dinner I made fajitas with beef, red and green peppers, onion, some seasoning and whole grain tortillas.
Don't know macros or calories for the day but I didn't do too bad.

I have similar-ish stats as you, +1 inch, and about 10 lbs, and was also very fit at one time, until I left the Army, got married, and had a kid all about the same time. Let myself get up to prob. 18-20ish percent (from 7-8) over a couple years time, but I am back down to 12ish now and working back to towards those single digits.
Also working back to that 6-6.5 min. pace sustainable for at least 2-3 miles, (preferably indefinitely though) as my plans are to rejoin soon and be at SFAS by Oct/Nov. Working in plenty of ruck/weighted vest runs in the mean time also.
So def. in on this one to follow someone who is already an operator on a similar journey of reclaiming the former glory of being the PT Beast that I bet you once were.
If only you were in Houston...I wish I could find a good training partner here with similar training goals, because I always push myself harder when I am constantly trying to beat someone else....*shrug*, I'll just keep up with your logs and if it looks like you're doing more work than me, I'll get pissed at myself and push harder. ;-)

As for training to possibly consider: one thing I am doing right now that is giving me great results is a modified version of GVT on Leg day. Though, I superset back squats -> front squats -> leg press, for many sets, which each set never fails to get my heart rate pumping hard and fast, soak my shirt like I just did Cardio, and give me Doms for 48-72 hrs. (Though the Doms is finally starting to mild out). After 7-8 of those supersets in the 8-12 rep range each exercise, (so sets of 30 reps. on avg.). I finish up with 4-5 sets of 15-25 rep leg extensions and curls, and 3-4 variations of calf raises until I am basically limping out the door.
I have been making sure Leg and back days are on point as my primary focuses, other than runnig (figure strong base and core for throwing that ruck around everywhere).
I do the hip flexor machines to help my run time too, (laugh if you want, it helps).
Lastly, I don't know if you've ever run EC, but personally I had great results with it really burning my extra flab up for me (literally burn, as it significantly raised my core temp....cheap, effective preworkout too).
Anyways, best of luck.

Got to the gym a little later than planned this morning. Got some exercise before I left the house though. Funny how you get more attention when you get less fat.
Anyway, shoulders and abs today.
Didn't write my workout down, just wanted to get in and out without thinking about it because I saw some pretty creepy shlt in the gym.
Bought this stuff today. It's pretty good.
No avocado this morning. I'm disappointed.
Tried a new flavor of modern BCAAs, watermelon. Damn, that shlt is great! I would drink that all day if I could.

@LeeDurr, good luck getting back in. Hopefully you fall into the category of those who can rejoin. It's hard right now, under current business rules so I'd start talking to a recruiter as it's only going to get harder.
I haven't run EC and I won't. I don't think I need ephedra in my diet. I used Finaflex's PX Black and it treated me very well, as did FF's reps and if I start to stall on the fat loss, I'll go right back to PXB.
I've done the GVT thing and will reincorporate it into my fitness plan toward June, I think.
I'll start rucking and distance running around mid-July. Right now I can sustain 6minute pace for 4 miles, looking to get to the 15 mile point before I'm happy. Have a half marathon in June so it's something to shoot for.

Now I am about 20-25 lbs even more heavy though, which was partly flab at first, but I've traded most of it in for lean mass now. Still working on getting that cardio back up though, since in SFAS they still grade you on the 17-21 scale no matter how old you are, and I am never satisfied unless I at least exceed the max score....so 13 min. 2 mile (when fatigued not fresh) is my minimum standard. Of course since you said you can do 4 mile at a 6 min. Pace already, youve just bumped up one of my short term.goals ;-p
And yeah, I know getting back in is harder right now (especially into The Regiment), but I have a semi-unique background and solid foundation. I've already talked specifically to a SF recruiter to check feasibility, see if they'd even want me and layed out a game-plan.
Ultimately though, I don't care how hard it is, its where I belong, and I'll get there one way or another. Even if took years and maybe a change of identity or 2. (just kidding on the last part of course....maybe). ;-)

My dad was SF, back in 'Nam, he weighed a whopping 160 at 6'1". (Like 1958 enlistee)
Was strong though, mentally and physically.
Make sure you work Ruck runs (as much as I hate recommending that). They do all of their rucks as runs.

Its actually annoying to type it all on my phone though, especially still learning my new phone with an even smaller keyboard, until I remember I have Swype Texting now, which makes it a lot easier. ;-) Of course, if I wanted to kick doors and be a Ranger, it'd be even easier. My posts would conisist of *Grunt, Grunt, Hooah, + a sentence or two. ;-p (Just kidding on that last part......maybe). ;-)

But yeah, I am doing a lot of ruck-runs; (Thanks for the heads up, its def. Solid advice). There are some nice trails near my house and I take my 3 yr. Old out there with me sometimes, and loadup extra weight since I know Ill be walking, but the last 3 out of 5 times we've been out there we've ran into a snake, which each time has caused my son to instantly monkey crawl his way into my shoulders before I even know what's going on. 35 extra lbs of kid is a lot heavier when, its on top of a 60lb weight vest + 50-65 ruck.... ;-/
Alright I am done hi-jacking Para's thread. I came here to follow along him spilling his guts to us, not for me to spill mine. ;-p

You could do my Warrior Workout, Kleen's Machine as it is called now. It is the one that DreamWeaver has been running the last 4-6 weeks. Works great for stamina and finishing strength. Will make running those miles easier on the heat too. Hit me up with your email if you want it.

I got one called 100% pain, and another called "ass in the tub"Originally Posted by MANotaur
The 100% pain I bought on a dare, it literally brought me to me knees.
The ass in the tub, I tried it once, ghost chilies. It scares the hell out of me...
