Soooo. I just did my first 5k on a treadmill, and then pushed another 0.5k. You have no idea how proud I am of myself.
While I am posting pictures. Have a before and during comparison.
Top picture is from last night (~100 kg), bottom picture was from when I was around my highest (~130 kg)
I’m going to the gym.
1. One day I am going to be wearing full Aperture Science gear to the gym. Why? Because science. While working out today I saw my white hoodie and wanted it to have a huge Aperture Science logo on the front with “Test Subject #(random number here)” on the back. With that, the shorts i have now, but white and black instead of red and black, and then a baseball cap with the Portal logo on it.
2. Started a new schedule for the week on what workouts on what day that was inspired by TheHodgeTwins/Twinmuscleworkout. Feels good so far, hopefully it continues to be as pleasant.
Sooooooooooooooooooooo, some before and during!
The during picture was taken just a few hours ago after today’s gym, and the before picture is taken from 2010. (not sure on exact date)
no idea why the during picture got twisted >.< i can’t be bothered to fix it now though
Ahmed told me they put up the punching bag at the gym again, but you had to bring your own gloves. The exact phonecall went down like this:
Me: So, we still meeting up at the gym at 11?
Ahmed: Yup. Did you hear they put up the punching bag at the gym again?
Me: Mother fucker, you best not be toying with my feelings.
Ahmed: You have to bring your own gloves though.
Ahmed: I’ll bring my spares.
Ahmed: And wrapping tape.
Me: You really know how to seduce a guy, don’t you?
But as of 2 weeks ago, I have a goal for the summer.
In town, we have this yearly race called “The KK-Run”. KK is the abreviation of the local newspaper (Katrineholms Kuriren), and it’s a half-marathon.
My goal is to finish that race no later than 10-15 minutes behind my friend who runs it every year. So I have been in really hard training, upping my cardio from 15 minutes in the gym and 30 minutes outside of the gym (walking to and from the gym) to 60 minutes in the gym, and 30 outside of the gym.
It’s been 2 weeks and I have already started noticing a difference, so I am really hopeful that this is a goal I can really go through with, and actually maintain once it’s done.
I am sorry for ever doubting running, Rho. I have found my way of making it fun.
Today at the gym, I maxed out a machine for the first time in my life.
You guys have NO idea how proud I am of myself. I also broke 3 other records at the gym, and I am just so pumped and happy right now.
