I have to keep this journal updated. It seems to bring me good luck. I started it Monday morning and that afternoon I can a call and am scheduled to test the FBI's phase 2 testing in early Feb.
Of course that means my training has to pick up a notch. I figure that I have between 2 and 3 months to get everything worked out.
I was hungry all day on Monday and ended up adding meal # 6 plus a snack just to get by. I'm afraid that if I let myself get too hungry I'll binge and screw up my whole diet. So I've upped my total calories to 2410.
I also went to a speciality running store yesterday to make sure that I had the right shoes because of the shin pain that I'm experiencing. Turns out that the shoes I bought when I started running were "trail" shoes. Good shoes but made more for off-road running and hiking. So I bought a pair of adidas. The guys at the shop said that running on a small (indoor) track can cause leg problems because you are always turning. They suggested that I run outside on the regular track or better yet not run on a track. So I also got an under anderArmor cold weather shit, a hat, and some running sweats. Hopefully I can handle the cold.
Tuesday - left my training notebook in my office so didn't record the workout. Did about 90 pushups, 5 sets of 15 on the cybex press machine, 5 sets of pull-ups, 5 sets of pull-downs, 3 sets of db hammer curls, 3 sets of french curls, 3 sets of lying tricep extensions, 3 sets of inclined db curls, and about 70 sit-ups.
Wednesday - ran 1 mile and did 15 minutes on the eliptical stepper.
push-ups - 6 sets 106 reps
machine press - 6 plates X 20, 18, 5 plates X 25 reps
pull-ups - 3 sets --> o wt X 6 reps, -28lbs X 7 reps, -40lbs X 10 reps
