BODYWEIGHT- 94KG
MENTAL STATE- GOOD
SORENESS-
Calves/Achilles- I've been doing a few stretches at work while in the office and I'm being cautious with the volume/building up the intensity gradually.


TRACK-

Stretch/Dynamic Warm Up
Run throughs 

1x150m 95%
Full recovery ~20 minutes
1x150m 95%

I went to the track by myself tonight so I didn't have my gf timing me but these felt a lot better/faster than my 150s last week. 1st rep was decent but the 2nd one felt amazing. Am obviously still out of shape but I made it further without feeling fucked and I felt a lot less tight/more relaxed, which is the aim.

PARK-

Sit ups- 15x3
I was too lazy to do any pull ups/chin ups but I'm going to make core a priority, which means being consistent with sit ups. I'll start adding in some leg raises soon as well.

I'm pleased. My aim is to lose 1kg a week. So far so good ;D

MENTAL STATE- Good

SORENESS-
Hamstrings- Felt a bit tight
Calves/Achilles Tendon

TRACK

Stretching/Dynamic Warm Up
Run Throughs

1x200m- 29 seconds
8 minutes rest
1x200m- 29 seconds
8 minutes rest-

Faded on the 3rd set but once again I reduced my recovery time by a minute so I'm building up the intensity. My glutes were soo sore after the 3rd rep- just lactic acid.

BODYWEIGHT- 92.5KG
Waist- 41 inches around the top of belly button, 39 inches below belly button.
Estimated body fat according to Willoughby bodyfat calculator= 27% using 41 inch waist or 22.9% using 39 inch waist.

SORENESS-
Calves/Achilles
Sore head- hangover

MENTAL STATE- Pretty good today but yesterday I ended up drinking a dozen beers. I also got a $483 fine from the police for failing to completely stop at a ‘STOP’ sign. $483 fine for a minor offence like that is unbelievable that's literally 3 days work just to pay off that fine. After the fine I was angry so I went to the botte-o , bought a carton and got pissed. I woke up today with a small hangover- slight headache and groggy.  I feel shit about drinking but what’s done is done and today is a new day. No point dwelling on it. Life goes on...

TRACK-

Stretching/Dynamic Warm Up
A couple of run throughs
1x300m- 46.8 seconds
15 minutes recovery
1x300m- 45.8 seconds
Warm down

300s are always a humbling experience. This time I managed to start feeling fucked when I got halfway around the bend instead of just approaching the bend. My aim is to reduce the recovery period down to 10 minutes and then I’ll add another set. Atm they take a lot out of me though to the point where I'm hunched over trying to spew.

I love running. If my body wasn’t so injury plagued/low work capacity I would love to run every day. For now I’ll just stick to training every 2nd day.

Lying Leg Raises-
10x3

Sit-ups-
20
16x3

BODYWEIGHT- 92.5KG

SORENESS-


Achilles tendon/Calves- Feels worse in the left side now. I've been sitting down in the office doing a lot of stretching and calf raises. I also walked 5km yesterday so it appears that it's actually aggravated it more so it's worse than before :raging:

Mental State- Good. However, my Achilles/calves problem is driving me mental. I've been doing a lot of research into the causes and cures for it. I've come across a few interesting studies, such as this one:
http://lermagazine.com/article/achilles-tendinopathy-and-body-mass-index

"They found that the acute transverse strain response (calculated based on change in tendon thickness) of the Achilles tendon in the overweight group was almost half that of the low normal weight group, and hypothesized that the structural tendon changes associated with obesity impair the tendon’s ability to respond to load".

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23768275
"These findings suggest that obesity is associated with structural changes in tendon that impairs intra-tendinous fluid movement in response to load and provides new insights into the link between tendon pathology and overweight and obesity".

So basically being overweight increases the load, which is obvious. However, more concerning is that it also affects the ability of the tissues to take the load, which magnifies the problem. Hence, why being overweight/obese is such a prevalent cause for not just achilles issues but Orthopedic issues in general e.g. hip and knee replacement etc. 

But anyway back to training:

TRACK-

Stretching/Dynamic Warm Up
A couple of run throughs

1x50m fly
5 minutes rest
1x150m- felt good I maintained my speed well but the time was probably slow due to there being a strong headwind that I was running into.
20 minutes recovery
1x150m- Same story as the 1st 150m.

I had wanted to do a 200m but by this stage my left achilles was giving me a lot of pain so I stretched a bit and called it a day. I'm going to ice it tonight and give it complete rest tomorrow so hopefully it feels reasonable again in a couple of days. Rest does absolutely nothing for this injury. In the last 2 years I've done fuck all exercise or training and the problem is just as bad/if not worse now than it was before so the only thing I can do is just keep persevering and lose weight/strengthen & stretch calves/slowly increase the workload.

Lying Leg Raises-
11x3x2

Sit-Ups-
20x1
17x3

getting drunk to deal with frustration is kind of worrisome, dude.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

My unemployment money is ~120 $ per month. 483$ would be more than 3 months of unemployment money.

Also, 483$ would be more than the highest salary I had in my life, per month.

Yeah I’ve had/got a drinking problem that I’m trying to overcome. There was a period in 2014 where I was drinking 72+ bottles of beer a week. Later in the year I cut that down to about 50 bottles a week and in the last month 6 months down to 25. Recently I’ve gone from drinking twice a week down to once a week and trying to restrict that once a week session to about 6 beers. Up until recently I didn’t really care that much about it because I would literally rather go out with mates and get drunk than play sport. If none of my mates felt like going out I’d drink by myself.  Apart from being overweight I turned 25 on the 13th of October so I thought that now’s a good time just to grow up and stop acting like a teenager. Hence, starting this journal and starting to exercise again.

It’s definitely a high price to pay. In Australia the unemployed get paid $520 a fortnight so it’s close to a fortnightly payment for somebody that is unemployed.

BODYWEIGHT- 92.5KG

SORENESS-
Achilles/Calves- It would be stupid to run tonight given how much soreness I'm currently experiencing so I'm not running today.

MENTAL STATE- Good. I just signed up to the gym in my lunch break. I've decided to bite the bullet and start lifting weights again mostly because I won't always be able to do running. My plan is to do full body workouts 3 times a week. Maybe more just depends how motivated I remain.

Edit- Just got back from the gym!

Front Squats-
barx4
40x4
60x4x4 60kg actually felt heavy LOL!
I didn't really feel any DOMS. If anything my wrists were hurting more than my legs but I'm starting to feel my quads now.


Assisted Pullups (19kg)-

8x3
7x1 i wanted to get 8 reps but failed on the last one...

Barbell Rows-
20x12
30x12
40x12

REST DAY-

Talked to soon about the lack of DOMS. I didn't even lift much or very heavy but my quads, chest, and upper back are all moderately sore. It's weird that my chest is sore considering all I did were front squats, pullups, and barbell rows (none of which predominantly use the chest). I've also got slight soreness in my groin- need to narrow my stance.

I also have a radiology appointment for my Achilles tendon for next Tuesday. I'm getting an ultrasound done and having it looked at by a doctor to get an official diagnosis. If the ultrasound shows enough thickening hopefully I can get some cortisone injections into it. They are feeling slightly better but that's just because I haven't run for 3 days. Tomorrow after I finish running it'll flare up again no doubt.

BODYWEIGHT- 92KG

SORENESS-
Leg DOMS from lifting the other day. My quads feel soo tight!
Calves/Achilles- I've decided I'm not going to do any speed work (practicing starts, speed endurance e.g. the 2x150m) and just going to keep my running to intensive tempo. In the meantime I'm going to keep doing eccentric strengthening and stretching and hopefully the tissue starts recovering.

TRACK-
Stretching/Warm Up

1x200m- 28 seconds
7 minutes rest
1x200- 29 seconds
7:30 minutes rest
1x200m- 32 seconds. Fkn shit. I was fatigued so the last 100m felt like the last 100m of a 300. I need to push myself harder next time.

On the positive side the first couple of 200's were decent and once again I reduced my rest down by 1 minute on the 2nd rep and 30 seconds on the 3rd rep. I'm planning to reduce the rest period down another 30 seconds respectively for next week.

GYM-
I'll update this later tonight after I've gone to the gym. At this stage I'm thinking of just doing some benching.

Edit- Just got back from the gym.

Incline DB Bench-

10x12
16x12 3 sets

Bench-
barx12
40x8
60x5x3

Assisted Pullups-
9,9,9,6

Sit-Ups-
20x1
18x3

That's about 39.5 inches but you're 4kg heavier than me. You're probably around 20-22.5% bodyfat atm.
