REST DAY 14 WORKOUT

I was hoping to make it a full 60 minutes today but at the 20 minute mark my right foot started to really burn and I didn’t want to push it so I slowed down and called it quit at the 30 minute mark as I didn’t want to push my like.

I woke up in a little pain this morning, but it disappeared by my second cup of coffee, so I was hoping I’d just slept funny.

I think I’m going to take tomorrow off and rest up a bit, and see if I can make a full 60 on Thursday.

For those of you who are new, I consider any workout that doesn’t make it to the 60 minute mark to be a rest day workout. I know, it doesn’t make a lot of sense. Welcome to Undead-Earth.com.

60 MIN CHALLENGE – DAY 50

I felt pretty good while on the treadmill, but started slow at 2 mph, and only ramped up to 2.5 mph and held it there for the duration of the walk.

I felt a little burning in my right foot near the 55 minute mark but was able to finish.

It was also a milestone being my 50th 60 minute challenge!!!

Since I’ve started walking I’ve walked 154.57 miles, and I’m down 27lbs.

Woot woot.

REST DAY 13 WORKOUT

I’m still not back to my pre injury self from before last month. I can do everyday tasks fine, but doing my normal 60 minute workout is still hit or miss, actually, mostly miss. I’ve only been able to do the 60 minutes once in the last month.

WEEK 27 – WEIGH IN

While I didn’t lose any weight this week, I’m counting this one as a win. Last weekend was fathers day and I absolutely pigged out. My all time favorite sub is the Capastrami from Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop. If you have one by you, the food is top notch.

Capastrami

My wife got me a double meat Capastrami, and over the course of fathers day I ate the whole thing. Monday sucked because going back into Keto always makes me grumpy, but the sub was worth it, and I’m not going insane over the fact that my weight is basically the same as last week. Sometimes you have to live, and last week I lived.

60 MIN CHALLENGE – DAY 49

I know, I’m too stubborn for my own good sometimes.

I was going to stop at the 2.0 mile mark, and I did start very slow, at just 2.0 mph, and only increased to 2.5 mph, so I was feeling pretty good, and just kept going.

I didn’t get any discomfort until the 58 minute mark, and by then I just had to finish. I had a little burning on the ball of my right foot, but it went away as soon as I stopped walking.

Back issues suck, but I am still in better shape than I have been in for the last 10 years, so I am going to keep pushing forward.

I promise I won’t be pushing too hard though, its been a full 20 days since I was able to go a full 60 minutes.

REST DAY 12 WORKOUT

Progress is slow, but I am increasing my distance again, while keeping my pace at a steady 2.5 mph, which doesn’t seem to aggravate my back. Looking forward to getting back to a full hour, but I’m not going to push it.

REST DAY 11 WORKOUT

I take a few more days off, both to rest, and because it was Father’s Day weekend and be lazy seemed like a great way to celebrate. It’s Monday though, and I pigged out on Father’s Day, so now I need to pay the price. Overall it was a good, short walk. No discomfort, just a small twinge in my thigh, so I didn’t push it. I’ll work back up to a full sixty minutes, and I’m never, ever, going to go over 3.5 mph again, because being in pain sucks, and my back has given me a clear message. Go over 3.5mph and you will hurt for weeks.

Message received.

WEEK 26 – WEIGH IN

Losing weight while unable to workout is really hard. I’m still recovering after I tweaked my back (because I’m an idiot who was feeling good and pushed too hard on the treadmill) and the only way to lose weight is to drastically cut calorie intake. It sucks, but it is the only option if you can’t work out.

REST DAY 10 WORKOUT

I felt slightly better today, and didn’t get any of that leg burning in my thigh until after I did a full 1.1 miles.

So still not back to my peak, but slowly improving.

REST DAY 9 WORKOUT

I’ve taken a few days off to recover, but I’m not back in “pre aggravation” status yet. I felt good up until about the half mile mark (going at 2.5mph) but then my right thigh started to burn so I stopped pretty quickly after that, as I don’t want to aggravate whatever nerve I squished 2 weeks ago.

What did I learn? First, I thought I was doing awesome after losing 25lbs and that I could push harder than I really could. Sadly, I just have a condition and need to not push past 3.5 miles an hour, because that is where my back just can’t take the shock or pounding on my lower back.
