Better running tips

Found this out on the web and thought it would be helpful here. Have a look.

Workout Log & Update

Had a bad head cold last 2 days. Felt much better today. Got my truck back and started ripping out the old interior. Its cold and rainy and I worked in it maybe 2 hours. I am starting to feel the benefits from the mild exercise. My mood is better and overall I really feel good!

Tonight I did sprints 4-6 mph for 1-2 mins then walk at a 2mph for a couple mins and back up to a sprint. Its part of the conditioning program I found. Tonights "jog" was 2.0 miles and 36 minutes. I probably could have pushed a bit harder but I dont need another injury going too fast again.

Here is my updated log for today:

Hey whats up???

Hey there! Well I am back on the path so to speak. From my last entry we decided to take the house off the market. This meant I could move all of my exercise equipment back inside. Its been in the house now about   2 weeks. In that time I went from running a small 1.2 miles back up to a full 5k. My weight has been coming off more now and in the last 3 days I have lost 2.2 pounds. Because I sat most of the winter I need to burn off 75 pounds before June 30 (my birthday). It can be done!

I have not been blogging because I decided last fall to make a leap into a new sector of my business. I am building (from scratch) a food truck.  It is out getting a new suspension and when it returns it will be a full time job welding and building the interior. It doesn't have much to do with weight loss other than its going to be alot of manual labor for at least a month and a half. So if I am not running I can expect to at least be working hard. I will try to find more time to blog. It seems over the winter this site has picked up a great deal. That is cool and inspiring to me!

Thanks for sticking with me.

Here is a mockup I did of my food truck (Its still in the rough stages).
