Sept - Dec Training for a Crossfit event
 
My friends persuaded me to join their Tough Mudder team in Tampa in December, I agreed because it's going to be fun and it's an excuse for me to get back in the shape I'd like to be.

I'm going to take part in a wide variety of physically rigorous activities and try to maintain a somewhat nutritional diet. Strength training, kayaking, running, jump rope, calisthenics, yoga, stretching, etc. As much activity as I have the time for in between my school studies.

This'll be disorganized at first, I'll set it up in time

Sept 06:

5:30am - two mile jog, carrots and water beforehand
7:30 - Meal 1: oatmeal, green tea, multi vit, calcium & fiber supplements, as well as Vit C
10:00 - 3 sets pulls ups: pull ups, wide grip chin ups, close grip p.u.
10:30 - Meal 2: egg, slice of ham, olive oil, whole wheat flat sandwich things... sandwich
11:00 - kayak 2 miles (stayed well hydrated)
3:00 pm Meal 3: - whey protein with milk
5:00 - Meal 4: light tuna sandwich, vit C
7:00 - Meal 5: chicken breast, zucchini, small slice watermelon
9:30 - Meal 6: chicken breast

Planning on an early jog tomorrow morning followed by an upper body Push work out & core later in the afternoon. Maybe some intense cardio here or there... HIIT with a jump rope? Details tomorrow evening I suppose

You have to balance goals w/ your personal life. The higher your goals the more you have to sacrifice. That said if you are going to go party I would limit this to 1x/week. Before heading out have amino acids and a multivitamin. While you're out have a glass of water between each drink and when you get home have 2 tall glasses of water.

Day 6 - I had a photoshoot but then that got rescheduled at 4am and cancelled at 8am... Threw my Sunday off. A setback, but not going to let it distract me from today's work.

As NJI said, "the higher the goals the more you have to sacrifice." I'm going to keep this in mind whenever I have trouble sticking with my training plans. Saturdays are reserved for drinking and revelry, the other 6 days are for training and study.
