When I first started doing strength training which eventually led to endurance training I was of the mindset that I needed to have protein, protein, protein within 30 minutes of working out.  I was downing Muscle Milk as if they were running out of it.  I noticed that I wasn't losing any weight nor did I feel any different after taking it either.  Now that may have something to do with the fact that I was partnering it with Promax Bars.  Between the two you are looking at close to 600 calories and 40 grams of protein.&n...

Today Karen and 4 of her friends ran the Heels and Hills and Him and had truly perfect weather for the 5K.We got up early and had some of the friends meet us at the house so that we could follow each other and make sure nobody was lost or late.  Got to the race in plenty of time and I was surprised.  I had no idea that the event was going to be as big as it was.  There was a 5K, a 10K and a 1/2 marathon being run today as well as a 1 mile fun run/walk.The 1 mile fun run/walk went off with all the children and their parents.&...

Running in the rain is a wonderful experience, but running in a pure downpour?  With thunder?  Lightning? Well let's just say it was just as good.  I had a great time running 16 miles today and I can't say that is something that I say often but today it was awesome. I went out to White Rock Lake with Karen and a good friend Adam.  Adam has been training for the past few weeks for a 5K and he has really been pushing himself.  He is doing hill training, interval training, fartleks, track training.....you name it he is doing it and it h...

Throughout the process of being unemployed I have learned a few things about myself but just as important I have learned a lot about how my friends truly are who those are to be considered aquaintences.  I learned from a mentor a few years ago that friends are to be put on a dart board and those closest to the bullseye are your closest of friends.  And most importantly is that people will move toward the center and away from the center all the time.With my blog I have the opportunity to help a friend out who has started his own compan...

Can you think of two things that are more stressful and yet doing them at the same time?  In all honesty the only two that may be more stressful would be marriage and child birth and getting married during child birth would be extremely stressful and sort of funny at the same time.Imagine the mother yelling names at the father as we have all seen in sitcoms.  Her cursing while the person overseeing the ceremony was trying to get answers to do you take this person's hand.  The doctors and nurses telling her to push at the same tim...

Today we Rank The Jailbreak and it was a lot of fun.The Jailbreak is an obstacle course run that covers 3.8 miles with 14 obstacles.  The claim to fame is the mud and getting muddy is the point of the run.We were in the first wave of runners at 9am.  When you start out going downhill and then up and over various boards and up and down hills.  After that you enter a muddy section where your feet sink into the mud and it is difficult to pull them out.You keep on running and eventually end up at a creek where the wate...
