Alright, new log, permanent home. My last log was an attempt to get “shredded”. I didn’t exactly get there, but there was a reason for stopping where I did. I put on a few pounds of needed fat at the end of the summer to have something to burn when the time came for that. The culmination of the log may have seemed a little secretive to some of you who followed along, as I disappeared for three weeks. Truth is, I attended a somewhat grueling selection process known affectionately to those who have taken part in it as the "School For Advanced Suffering". Now that that is out of theway, and I’m back to my “normal” schedule, it’s time for me to reevaluate my training, assess where I can get better, and make things happen again. As of about a week ago, I’m in recovery mode. For me, that basically means licking my wounds and doing what I can to heal them (foam rolling, lacrosse ball,stretching and a lot of food). For one,my feet are sore, real sore. We covered a lot of miles in a short amount of time with a moderately heavy to heavy load on our backs (sometimes up to +/-200lbs). By a lot of miles, my rough estimation would be somewhere around 200 miles in 15 training days. Average pack weight was somewhere around 60lbs. I also have a gaping hole just above my right ass cheek where I contracted an infection (cellulitis). Sucky but a small price to pay. Aside from that, I’m doing OK and plan to get back to business come Monday, or maybe sooner. My focus will be strength, my pack weight will increase to +100lbs.over time during my training marches and my runs will become consistently longer (up to 15 miles at a 630-7min pace). Most days will be weights in the morning and the evenings will be runs or foot marches. Diet will be relatively loose for a while as I put some of the weight back on that I lost over the past 3 weeks (approximately15-18lbs). Macros will still be decent and food sources will be mostly clean, but for now I want some ice cream, so I’m going to eat it. Supps will be pretty consistent. I haven’t taken ANYTHING since August 29th,and a very limited amount of supps for about a month prior to that. BCAA/SAA, fish oil, Active Multi, ALC/CLA, ON whey will be staples and PWO will rotate depending on workout type and how I feel on any particular day. Pure test will be thrown in the mix. Don’t expect to see any PH/DS here, as it doesn’t fit with my intended goals or outcome (sorry if this disappoints anyone, I have nothing against PH or DS). That being said, thanks for following, input, criticism, and knowledge. There will be food porn,there will be nudes, and there will be gheyness. Let the fun begin.
