Morning run, 2.5 km / 17 min.
Finally a little bit colder, no new snow though so it’s still really slippery. -4 Celsius.
Finished off with some yoga and push-ups.

@Jake_Sumner So you’re almost running an entire marathon on your own? That’s a lot of running. Tough Viking is only 8 km of running, which of course isn’t the main focus of it, but that feels like a long enough distance for me, haha.

@bamse Yes it’s almost a marathon by myself. It is broken up where I’ll run 9 miles the first leg and 4.5 miles for the 2nd and 3rd legs so it gets easier. And I’ll have 4-5 hours between each leg to recover. My training is more like 1/2 marathon training than full. I’ve never done one of these relays but I’m looking forward to it. I still want to try a Viking/Spartan/Tough Mudder. Those look like a completely different challenge - not as much focus on just running.

Morning run
5.2 miles / 50 min
Picking up the distance and pace. Feeling good but I’ve got to keep pushing as it’s only 32 days to Ragnar Relay


#2878

@Jake_Sumner Aha, so it’s a full day of running with lots of people in the same team. You seem to be making good progress, and I wish you the best for the competition.
I’m preparing for Tough Viking in May with running, lifting and explosive training. Sadly I don’t have access to any rings, ropes or something to do pull-ups on. I’ve heard that there is a lot of climbing and swinging from ropes in the various stops during the race, so it would certainly help to be prepared properly. Maybe I can find a tree somewhere to utilize (most trees here have branches that are too far above the ground to grab onto).

Stronglifts today. Squats, bench press and barbell row.

8 PAX today - great workout led by Dumpster


#2885

Yoga day followed by a long walk. It snowed yesterday, then it melted a bit, and froze during the night, so absolutely everything is covered in ice now. Not exactly ideal for running.


#2886

Smashed some Stronglifts this morning:white_check_mark:. Time to head to work :+1:


#2887

Back back back. Let’s docthis.

Very nice weather, -8 C, even though it’s still extremely slippery.


#2890

Morning run
5.3 mi / 52 min
Feeling good! Cool and misty outside today. Only 27 days to Ragnar!

@bamse, @CryptoDad and @peter You guys are making me miss lifting! I’m cutting back on lifting and focusing on running until Ragnar but I’ve got some Stronglifts goals set for Q2.


#2891

Stronglifts Day 53 :white_check_mark:
Hit a PR today on 10 rep deadlift after the 5 x 5 session. The weather was not that great today. But after a year of lifting outside under a shed you learn to appreciate the changing of the seasons.
@Jake_Sumner on the flip side your making me want to add running back to my routine :+1:


#2892

Just some breathing exercise and yoga today. Also took a long walk while the sun was still up.

@Jake_Sumner I missed it too when I was sick, it really is something else. But your training towards Ragnar made me finally decide to sign up for Tough Viking to test myself, and I got a good reason to start running more.


#2893

Morning run
6.2 mi / 64 min
22 degrees - coldest run yet. Feeling great this morning. Continuing to add distance. Testing out some gear for Ragnar. First time running with a hydration pack and energy chews. Only problem was liquid kept freezing in the drinking tube!


#2894

Stronglifts done. Squats, overhead press and deadlifts. Really heavy, but no problems getting it all done.
