Day 243 (W, 110831) — A Benefit of Intermittent Fasting; Max Capacity Training Day 35

Adaptation.  I ate yesterday.

Yeah, yeah, I know . . . “John!  How could you?!?”

I’ll tell you: it wasn’t easy.  I had to convince myself it was allowed; that eating lunch was both a natural reaction to a bit of hunger and an acceptable social reaction to an invitation from a friend.

So I wrestled with my conscience for a while and finally accepted that it was “okay” to eat lunch just this once. (;-))

BTW . . . the Three Story triple iceburger from Mooyah — complete with lettuce, tomato, pickles, jalapenos, grilled onions, sautéed mushrooms, bacon, avocado, mustard, mayo, buffalo sauce, and Cholula hot sauce1 — was totally worth it. =)


Max Capacity Training.  Almost home . . . today is MCT Day 35 of 36.  Time Attack rep targets are in parentheses.

  1. Staggered Push-ups (90): 90
  2. Sprinter’s Squats (75): 75
  3. Air Force Crunches (66): 66
  4. Lalanne Plank (60): 60
  5. Total time: 11:11

NJ-patented-10-round protocol will commence in 10, 9, 8, 7 . . .

Update, Workout Review.  Well, I did it.  It was tough but I powered through.

I came closer to doing an honest-to-goodness Lalanne Plank this time than ever before.  I was very close.

The crunches were the worst for me.  As I said before, my abs suck.  And my form broke down on the last few rounds.  But I stuck it out and finished all 10 sets of all four exercises.

Woohoo! =)


Site Stats.  There must be a popular mud run coming up this weekend.  This week, I’ve received more hits to my Tips for a Successful Mud Run post than any other post (besides my ever-popular 4HB Cheat Day Cheat Sheet) in a long while.
