    The Path of The Lion

    Thank you everyone for your wishes!! Really sorry for not updating my routine for the last week! Really busy and kept forgetting to write it down. I still do the alternation between running and strength. Today I am about to do Day 13 of Spartan Trials, but I think I'll skip the planks into...

    Today's workout: Running - C25K W7D2 :v: 5 min walk 25 min run 5 min walk Verdict: After an enjoyable day trip and good food, avoiding today's running workout was not an option. I really liked my performance today. Maybe not as fast as the Flash, but my pace was definitely controlled...

    Today's workout: Running - C25K W7D1 :v: 5 min walk 25 min run 5 min walk Verdict: Once again, the running time gradually increases. It was tiring but enjoyable and didn't stop to catch my breath or anything. Still going strong

    The Path of The Lion

    Today's workout: Spartan Trials Day 8 :v: Verdict: It was nothing much. But truth be told it was a nice rest-day workout to feel my body activated. Especially since I feel that I am about to get sick. Hopefully, I won't.

    Today's workout: Running - C25K W6D3 :v: 5 min walk 22 min run 5 min walk Verdict: Today was a tough day mentally. I got furious at work with my supervisor(I'm a Ph.D. Candidate), and I reached a point where I'm saying "2.5 more years and I won't have to rely on anyone afterward", just to...

    The Path of The Lion

    Today's workout: Spartan Trials Day 7 :v: Verdict: The "love to hate you" workout again. This time the first 1 -2 reps of the negative pull-ups felt more controlled. However, the following reps were again fast due to the lack of strength. I have mixed feelings about not having any pull...

    Today's workout: Running - C25K W6D2 :v: 5 min walk 10 min run 3 min walk 10 min run 5 min walk Verdict: It's been a while since I had that much of an energized run! And that's thanks to music. I may was born in 1995, but damn... 80s rock for the win for working out! This is the song that...

    The Path of The Lion

    Today's workout: Spartan Trials Day 5 :v: Verdict: As you may have noticed I skipped Day 4. The reason is simple, I don't enjoy such workouts (yoga types or something, I apologize if I don't know the correct term), and I'll probably skip any similar workouts. Anyways. About Day 5. If there's...

    Today's workout: Running - C25K W5D3 :v: 5 min walk 20 min run 5 min walk Verdict: Today's run was painful! The moment I started running, the upper body soreness from yesterday was so intense, it was like I was wearing weighted clothes. Chest, arms, lats. Just painful. However, I pushed...

    The Path of The Lion

    Today's workout: Spartan Trials Day 3 :v: Verdict: Today's workout was a love-to-hate-you relationship. I was so excited when I saw that I will be able to practice pull-ups (because I have 0 pull strength), so I decided to change the pull-ups to negative pull-ups. I felt kind of disappointed...

    Today's workout: NONE :p Verdict: Today was a really full day. A family day. My parents had their 28-year anniversary, so all three of us went to a nice restaurant by the sea and afterward I went to visit my grandparents. I feel so full from food and drinks that I didn't have the energy to work...

    Today's workout: Spartan Trials Day 2 - Level I :v: Verdict: Overall, it felt like an ok workout in terms of intensity. Maybe I should do it on Level II? But thought of doing the whole on Level I for its first run. Apart from that, cross crunches were the exercise that caused the actual burn...

    What video games are you currently playing?

    Marvel’s Spider-Man. I really try to find some games to satisfy me until my hyped ones are released (the new AC games, Division heartland, the remake of splinter cell, and so many more). After Spider-Man I’ll probably play the avengers and guardians of the galaxy. Probably Gotham knights as well...

    Today's workout: Spartan Trials Day 1 - Level I :v: Verdict: After deciding to follow a more intense approach for my strength gains, I believe starting Spartan Trials as a complete beginner from Level I was a wise choice. The workout literally kicked my butt by the end of set 1. By the end of...
