Mrs. SVC. Your first marathon will feel like pure insanity as well. A person's body is simply not use to working like that for 5 hours. 5 hours would be a good goal for your first one. Good luck!

And you shouldn't have to workout 1-2 hrs for 4-5 times a week. Unless you spend a little more time with the O-lifts. This morning we did a 5 min warmup (jump rope, burpees and handstand pushups). Another 5 min plank & then 15 V situps (Mikey likes to do core work during warmup). About 15 min for push press strength work (yesterday we did back squats). The MetCon (metabolic conditioning) segment was 10 reps down to 1 of Thruster (65 lb was women's weight) inbetween did 1 up to 10 reps chest-2-bar pullups. The C2B is my limiting factor. Starting around the round of 7 the muscle fatigue limited me to 1 every 10 sec (finished 7 rounds in 10 min but took me 6 more minutes to do the last 3 rounds because it was 8, 9, and 10 reps C2B - ugh!!!). Tomorrow is rest day. Thursday I might do the MetCon if I get out of work on time, otherwise, I'm spending an hour in the OLift corner working on my clean & jerks. Friday is rest day. Saturday morning at 9a is mystery workout, might do a double that morning (kettlebell class is at 10a). Sunday is a hike in the morning, massage in the afternoon.

Mrs. SVC ......"You gotta lift heavy shit" I freaking LOVE THAT QUOTE!!! Truer words were never spoken. My friends.......this is why Mrs. SCV has a powerful, beautiful physique. In the pic, where she is sipping the straw,.........just look at those thighs! That can only come from doing FULL squats with relatively heavy weights. This lady has busted her ass in the gym! Good going, I am very impressed!

Just might take a little extra effort but body composition change *is* possible. Take a closer look at your diet, your workouts and what you do the other 22-23 hours of the day (an hour on the treadmill doesn't make up for 8 hrs sitting at a desk, 2 hrs driving, 5 hrs sitting on the couch, etc).

For true muscle building, you have to challenge yourself. Pick up heavy shit. There is no such thing as "toning", you either get stronger, or just maintain. Remember, muscles burn the calories all day (and night). I've increased my muscle mass about 3-4 lbs this past year so I'm able to eat more calories and still maintain my weight loss from last summer.

To see the muscles, you have to take closer look at your diet. Not just calories but also where those calories come from, and when you eat/drink them. Good breakfast, balanced proteins, don't overdo the starches, limit those simple sugars, healthy fats. Don't eat too late at night.

Last summer, for our gym fitness challenge, I started using myfitnesspal dot com to track, now keep doing it out of habit and to monitor what I can get away with but still keep my weight 136-138 lb (my lowest last summer was 134 lb, 15% body fat - too low).

severe severe hamstring spams tonight affecting my low back & glutes but rendering me unable to even bend half way and driving home in excruciating pain. Thank goodness I already had a massage scheduled but I might have scared the new guy with how many knots, trigger points and other issues I had tonight. Just got done icing the glutes & hips. Guess I have a forced rest the remainder of the week. Damn.

On Monday I got oddly carsick on the way to kickboxing. I then spent 50 minutes learning how hard it is to have motion sickness and try doing reverse hook kicks. Oi...

FB Wednesday = waking up at 2a with very dry throat causing hacking cough and being awake for an hour with me oversleeping this morning (if you call it sleep). Maybe I'll be back to working shape this evening?

Fb: from today on, I will no longer be able to workout as I have up until this point. Going forward I will need to tailor time for exercising :/
