Woke up today with a sore back from sitting all yesterday and pulling a working all night the previous night in the same chair. Figured if my back was going to ache from sitting and posture then I’d give it a frikin’ reason to hurt. Ranging BB Deadlifts today, ran outta weight at 305, but it’s getting close to my max, might have had 10-20 lbs more in me but.. yeah, no more plates. time to invest in some 45lb plates I think.. yes, I think so…

Not too shabby! Alpha_Dan_Omega just earned 1795 points on Fitocracy with “Workout”.

CARPE NOCTIM: As a father of three boys, the time to act is Bedtime!

Carpe noctem is essentially the nocturnal equivalent of carpe diem and so literally means “seize the night.” It too is used to encourage someone to make the most of their time, often in the sense of working into the early hours of the morning to get something finished, or else enjoying themselves in the evening once a hard day’s work is done.

Fun! Alpha_Dan_Omega shared adnama0’s post in the The Right Mindset group:Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?(via Fitocracy)Fitocracy has helped hundreds of thousands of people reach the next level of fitness. Sign Up free.

Fun! Alpha_Dan_Omega said in the Couch to 5K group:"Week 5 Day 3, Brisk walk for 5 min, then jog for 20 min without walking."  Such an innocent  looking line, and I’ve read again and again where people were terrified of it, but then tried it and it was a breeze.  Yeah, I want to know where they got whatever they were using to have this run turn out to be a breeze.  It was a fuarking grind.  I have started six times prior to this evenings run, and six times I have failed to keep them legs moving at a jog for twenty minutes.  Tonight I was feeling too good not to get it done, so I started, and paced, and at eight minutes in I was dying, by twelve or thirteen I had hit my turnaround point on the preset run, by sixteen minutes if felt as though my legs had taken a vote and wanted to turn to lead,  by eighteen I was running on pure stubborn, and then by the end I didn’t care about the time, I had picked a line to act as my finish line and I was stopping to walk when I hit it.  The timer wound down as I crossed that line and dropped to a walk…To make matters even more interesting, I run after the kids and my wife are asleep, in the dark, and the quiet, because I’m shy and an introvert, and because I love the dark silence… Tonight, after I dropped into a walk, I had made about two minutes walking, my breath had just started to settle down, I was still just under a full km from home (just over half a mile to those not on metric), and my very sleepy wife calls with a very panicked three year old who’s not letting her do anything for him.  He’s awake and he want’s DAD, NOW.  So, why not, let’s just jog the last half mile home, even though I can hardly breathe and my legs feel like brittle crystal.  GAH!  The things we do for exercise, the things we do for our children…  But I did it, now on to week 6…(via Fitocracy)Fitocracy has helped hundreds of thousands of people reach the next level of fitness.
