NoMorExcuses - My 85 pound journey...

Story of a 285 pound unhappy-with-himself-and-worried-about-his-health guy that needed a life change. After being inspired by Ben Davis's "120 Pound journey", I started running, being smarter about my daily caloric value and obliterate the use of excuses to hold myself entirely accountable for my own life.

After a mere 3 months of running, my passion for running and physical activity suddenly awoken my thirst for challenges. So far, I finished multiple 5Ks, 10Ks and finished my first half-marathon after a mere 4 months of running.

I recently registered to a Full Ironman that will be on August 19 2012.

I have what it takes - And I will succeed.

Outside of all of the other stuff I’m doing on a daily basis - in 3 weeks, a co-worker and I were able to record a song to PSY’s Gangnam Style, shoot and edit the music video that goes with it.

We released it and showed it off at our work Christmas party on Friday where the feedback was phenomenal! The CEO called us on Saturday morning to have it on our private YouTube channel. Since Saturday afternoon, we got 500 views on it. 

Check it out and let me know what you think! Also, share this link as much as you like!

Ironman Mont-Tremblant Race Recap

I don’t even know where to start, my brain is still computing what is going on.  I’m waiting to wake up from this dream.

 This is a very photo and text heavy post. You may want to wait to read it when you have an hour to burn..

YOU
ARE
AN
IRONMAN!

I thought it was a rest day… But I was totally mistaken… Next rest day is in 19 days. YAY!

Today, ran 5k (35 minutes) - kept cramping up and had to stop several times… But time doesn’t matter… I went out there and I did it, even if I was sore and tired.

Then, did 50 pushups X 2 for a total of 100. Wudup pushups!? (Wudup)

Now, shower… Then relaxing to a movie with Kelly. With chocolate milk and lots of water.

So while I was running, I thought of that SOS thing that’s going on… Instead of “Summer Of Scale”… I think I will call it “Season Of Showers”… Cause for a solid week now, I’ve been showering 2-3 times a day!

240k of biking done since Sunday (149 miles) and what did I learn especially today? Forgetting to put sunscreen totally sucks.

Training is awesome, especially when it’s hot and windy outside!

Tomorrow, rest day.

For my American friends, that’s 62 miles. We started the day debated whether we should keep it short, and it was only when we were half-way there that Karl admitted defeat and gave me the finger. (typical of Karl when he’s not right)

It was amazing - I realized that I progressed a lot in no time. It’s all coming back, and it feels good. Hills I was struggling before were easy-mode. I didn’t even use my climbing gears for the ride, which was awesome (other than one longer hill…. I was breathing heavily once I reached the top then smirked)

We had head wind the entire time. It was weird cause we thought that on the way back it would play in our favor but I guess that eating a sub makes mother nature change her mind. We were riding and talking, going from 30-40km/h (18-24 mph) which the occasional pace drop when the roads were bad.

I want to do this again, soon… Longer distance even… It was great.

And now I’m pooped. It was a busy weekend and I need to sit in the couch, relax and fall asleep early.

Not quite 100k… But close!

Half-way point - I feel like I didn’t even start biking yet :)

That means good things!

60 minutes of spinning
30 minutes of running
Upper body workout

Getting ready for Sunday’s 100k bike ride!

That is all!

Today was hot and sloppy… Ran 6k - you know the training runs that were not meant to be successful? Well yeah, today was one of those.

Once Karl and I were done running, we went and played Tennis! It was hilarious since I didn’t play in 11-12 years… But it was awesome, definitely will do that again!

It all ended with some subway. Gotta love life!
