Fish out of water???


Weird title for this blog, huh? Well that's because I am going to be a fish out of water because I am going to turn INTO a fish! My diet has changed to Talipia at EVERY MEAL (well, except for breakfast.) Let's see how this goes since I'm not a huge fan. I'm going to try and get through it though. I have no choice at this point...it's 4 weeks out.


My workouts are great...the running is great but my body is beat to hell from running on the treadmill for an hour straight twice per day. Not to mention my lifts are heavy AND high reps (but that part I don't mind so much!) It's mostly from my knees down that kill...my shins, calves, feet. I think I'm going to have to schedule a few massages per week to help recover from this torture on my body.


Speaking of torture. Try the cardio I did today:

If you can complete this one without modifying it then you get two thumbs up!!!

Did this one on Sunday, but on the 3rd incline I needed to adjust it, so I brought the speed down a bit to complete. I'll have to give it another shot.
