Started Running!

So it was such a nice day out today that I had to try out my new Asics shoes, so I went for a run. It was around 49 degrees Fahrenheit, which was a little colder than I would've preferred, but I did it anyway.

So I got my sweatshirt on only to take it off a few minutes later after I went outside. I only ran for about 10 full minutes...maybe 15 and walked for about 8? It felt good to run since I haven't done it in so long. I've been so dependent on my bike for aerobic exercise that I neglected my own two feet for too long.

 I must get ready for the Run for Your Lives Zombie 5K event that I'm doing in October with Tom and Mark. Once it gets even warmer out I will be running a lot more often! Then my legs will not be in pain anymore!

Me and my Green Asics have your number zombies!

Introduction & February 23, 2012 Progress Pics

So I wanted to have a place for posting my progress pics of working out, so low and behold a new blog! I started using the Strong Lifts program with Tom in August 2011 and I've never taken any progress pics! We have been lifting heavy shit ever since then, doing basic lifts (Deadlift, Overhead Press, Bench Press, Rowing, etc.) on a three day a week basis.

We've also taken the Lean Gains program under our wing and changed our diets drastically. Eliminating Breads/Grains and eating mostly fruits, vegetables and lots and lots of meat. As long as we have protein in our system we are happy campers.

So let's get to it. I wish I took more "Before" pics but sadly I did not. Here we go!

Now I know in the 2nd picture I'm not doing the same pose, but you can definitely tell my shoulders are more refined and my arms are bigger ;).

I didn't take a picture of my back when I first started, but I took one today to track even further progress I make in the future.

So after 7 months of doing Strong Lifts and following the Lean Gains diet these are my results. I'm happy with them so far, but I can't to wait to make even more progress!
