2017 – Body at Peace 4 – Boxer Prime

So ended Themed Week set of workouts.  The only one left to do in the series is Yoga.  I will probably do that in the fall, but I want to use this year to really focus on peacefully reshaping my body over time with consistent workout.  I am not on 64 consecutive days of working out and I feel tremendous.  No too many aches and no really injuries to speak of.  Now that being said, I am taking on in Boxer Prime, probably the most challenging workout at DareBee.  I am in very good shape, as since I am just focusing at the 1st level, I should be alright.  My cardio is doing well too.  I now have made the switch to Garmin and really loving it, as it blends my sleep into the picture as well.  (Kept from previous foreword) – Additionally, I have added a couple layers of complexity or demand to my workout.  First, I am religiously sticking to DareBee and the Daily Dare; I am also, keeping the preliminaries.  Second, I have added a consecutive component – so, starting with the end of IronBorn, I have worked consecutively.  I intend to push for 60 straight day, then see if I can get to 90.  So far I am enjoying it and my body seems to be rising to the occasion.  I caught the flu a few day before the end of the last phase – I worked through it and was back up in only a couple of days.  It appears push through and forcing my body to continue working, I was able to push the flu out of my way.  I am also continuing my virtual push to OKC via Benton.  I am really enjoying that but I will have to pick up the mileage here in the next phase as I am running out of time. Keep leaning forward.

It’s groovy baby…Ciao!

Cardio (Road): 6.80 @ 120.00 min  (Really long walk)
Daily Dares : 50 Thigh Taps
Summary: Started today will a long ass walk – talking with Carl and Marie about Tamia.  Ended up walking over 2 hours resulting in around 6 miles.  At any rate, I was up against the clock for this one.  Today was all about Abs. And for me, Abs and Thighs are my least favorite workouts, but they are the can be the most appealing physically.  DD was relatively easy it was a planking move and I had no problems with it.  No issues with pre’s and like I mention above, I added a total of 6.8mi to my total on my way to OKC via Benton. Gots to get it done…son!…Ciao!

Distance: 53.68 +5.40 = 59.08 (LA-OK Run: 449.77)
Cardio (Road): 5.40 @ 41.00 min  (Another Ok effort)
Double Daily Dares : 2 min O-Pose Hold
Summary: Back on schedule and it feels good.  I was able to get through this workout likidy split. This workout was actually fun.  It was a mix of a whole bunch of different movements, jacks, bob and weave, high knees, etc… Got in pre’s with no issues.  The most challenging thing today was the DD.  I was actually pooped at the end of the 2mins.  And while I did not do any speed work, I did about a 4.5mi walk around the block with my wife.  Altogether I added 5.4mi to my total on my way to OKC via Benton. Ev’ry ting is gonna be alright…Ciao!

DAY 11/12 [JUN19] – Day 76 of 100 ( 73 and 74 did not include DareBee – see spreadsheet)
Distance: 50.48 +3.20 = 53.68 (LA-OK Run: 444.37)
Cardio (Road/Treadmill): 3.30 @ 24.33 min  (Ok effort)
Double Daily Dares : 2 min Jumping T’s
Summary: Getting back on schedule.  Really good workout; kinda long but well worth it.  So now I am back on track; packing two workout into one.  Like I said yesterday, it is really good to be fit enough to be able to do 2 level 5 workouts in a day.  Most of the workout was taken up with high knees, boxing and skipping for the most part.  The DD was pretty easy and the pre’s were no issues at all.  The mileage production was not that great, but the length of the workout made up for it.  Added 3.20mi to my total on my way to  OKC via Benton. Sayin’ don’t worry…Ciao!

DAY 9/10 [JUN18] – Day 75 of 100 ( 73 and 74 did not include DareBee – see spreadsheet)
Distance: 40.98 + 9.50 = 50.48 (LA-OK Run: 441.17)
Cardio (Road/Treadmill): 5.30 @ 41.14 min  (Good amount of make up )
Double Daily Dares : 40 Infinity Circles | 40 Bridges
Summary: After a couple of missed DareBees, I got back on track today quite well.  It feels good to be fit enough to be able to do 2 level 5 workouts in a day.  Honestly the first one (Day 9) had some challenging power pushups, but other than that, it was manageable.  The second was really not challenging at all.  The first 5mins was constant moving around and light jabbing followed by stretches.  I am still one workout behind, so tomorrow I will see if I can double up again, if not I will slide it to a manageable day; no need for needless stressing.  I also did a double DD.  Infinity circles are hard; doing 40 (properly) is almost impossible. Good pre’s today – honestly pre’s kept me honest the last couple days.  Added a total of 9.5 miles over the last 3 days on my way to OKC via Benton. Doing it well…Ciao!

DAY 8 [JUN15] – Day 72 of 100
Distance: 34.58 + 6.40 = 40.98 (LA-OK Run: 431.67)
Cardio (Road): 2.01 @ 18.52 min  (felt really good)
Daily Dares : 40 Side-to-Side Lunges
Summary: Another Allentown workout.  Today was mainly planking.  Did warm up with pre’s and workout in room.  At this moment, waiting for Ingrid to go for a pre-cardio walk. Might walk for about 30mins comeback and put in a 2 miler.  DD today was relatively easy – side to side lunges. Once I am finish with my cardio, which might include a swim, I will add the final distance here in my log.  I also have to make up for my step deficit yesterday as well.  So today I added a total of 6.40 miles on my way to OKC via Benton. Time to get up…Ciao!

DAY 7 [JUN14] – Day 71 of 100
Distance: 30.48 + 4.10 = 34.58 (LA-OK Run: 425.27)
Cardio (Treadmill): 2.18 @ 24.15 min  (felt good)
Daily Dares : 20 Commandos
Summary: Tight workout here in Allentown on the road.  Felt pretty tired but had to keep the streak going.  Not to hard or guess my fitness level is just up to the game.  Had to double up on DD but no issues and no issues with pre’s.  My total steps and mileage was off as would be expected, but I will try to make up for it tomorrow.  So my total is up by 4.2mi added to my total on my way to OKC via Benton. Oh yay…go boy…Ciao!

DAY 6 [JUN13] – Day 70 of 100
Distance: 24.28 + 6.20 = 30.48 (LA-OK Run: 421.17)
Cardio (Road): 2.18 @ 24.15 min  (felt good)
Daily Dares : 60 Calf Raises
Summary: Had squeeze this in before leaving Jax to head to Allentown for Tamia’s graduation.  It was all about speed – skipping, pushups and boxing.  No issues with pre’s.  For cardio did quite a bit of roadwork – looping around several streets.  Had to get caught up on DD, so that was a late addition.  Also completed 6.20mile total for today (added later since I was on the road before the end of this day).  Total of 6.20 mi total on my way to OKC via Benton. Pushing on up the hill..Ciao!

DAY 5 [JUN12] – Day 69 of 100
Distance: 18.18 + 6.10 = 24.28 (LA-OK Run: 414.97)
Cardio (Road): 2.25 @ 27.07 min  (still pretty journeyman like…)
Daily Dares : 40 Glute Flex
Summary: Not a bad workout; not that intense at all. Mainly boxing movements for a minute. Included rocking back and forth, side to side, squating, lunges, etc.  Pretty good.  Weird kinda DD today – glute flex; enjoyed them tho.  No issues with the pre’s and was able to working in my cardio run with the exercise of the day, so that was good.  Added 6.1mi to my total today on my way to OKC via Benton. Killin’ it..Ciao!

DAY 4 [JUN11] – Day 68 of 100
Distance: 13.78 + 4.40 = 18.18 (LA-OK Run: 408.87)
Cardio (Road): 4.40 @ 42.44 min  (still pretty journeyman like…)
Daily Dares : 30 Cossack Squats
Summary: Mixed it up today quite a bit.  Lots of pushups and a fair amount of squats to boot.  Quite manageable but long.  Really feel like I am getting a pretty good workout with this regime.  DD was Cossack Squats – never heard of them but it does look like that dance – thought it was Turkish though.  Push through the pre’s with no issues.  Like the 30 count, sort of getting used to them.  Suppose I have another 3-4 months at that level.  Did quite a bit of light jogging on the road today.  Did the Bellemeade-Alderman-Carlotta-Westlawn-Bellemeade (BACWB) loop; it was pretty cool.  Added a total of 4.4miles to my total today on my way to OKC via Benton. Easy does it..Ciao!

DAY 3 [JUN10] – Day 67 of 100
Distance: 8.68 + 5.10 = 13.78 (LA-OK Run: 404.47)
Cardio (Road): 5.10 @ 42.44 min  (pretty journeyman like…)
Daily Dares : 15 V-Ups
Summary: Abs all day today.  Pretty easy day in general.  My abs are pretty strong…my core is relatively solid so I just push through this with some nice songs in the back yard.  The DD was V-Ups.  They are a bit challenging, but once you know how to breath, you are solid.  No issues with pre’s and since the girls were taking up time on the treadmill, I did my cardio as roadwork.  Did a 3miler, but overall added a total of 5.1mi to my total on my way to OKC via Benton. Here I come again babee!..Ciao!

DAY 2 [JUN09] – Day 66 of 100
Distance: 5.80 + 2.88 = 8.68 (LA-OK Run: 399.37)
Cardio (Elliptical): 2.01 @ 19.22 min  (Did not like this too much)
Daily Dares : 60 Second Raised Arms Circles
Summary: Oh yeah, this is tough stuff.  Not it is hard.  I see why it is a 5 star level.  At any rate, I push through it.  I know a few months ago, even 1 month ago, I would probably struggle worse.  At any rate, I get through it with not a great amount of difficulty.  120 squats and 120 basic burpees…really.  I got through them tho and am the better for it.  Push through pre’s with no issue – easy in fact.  Did not do alot of moving around today and only went around the block twice so I got just under 3 miles added to my total distance today.  I switched up from treadmill to elliptical and felt a bit underwhelmed – not sure why.  I used to love the elliptical.  I think I need to tune it up.  DD was relatively easy, almost boring.  So I added 2.88miles to my total distance on my to OKC via Benton. Push it good baby!..Ciao!

DAY 1 [JUN08] – Day 65 of 100
Distance: 0.00+ 5.80 = 5.80 (LA-OK Run: 396.49)
Cardio (Treadmill): 2.01 @ 16.27 min  (Ok road run, did some intervals)
Daily Dares : 100 Side Leg Raises
Summary: Just starting out Boxer Prime and I know this is going to be a beast.  I think this will be the point at which my body changes.  Really liked this first workout, hope I will be able to perform it on the road, although I anticipate it will hard-ish.  I will have to probably prep for a lot of these since they are timed.  Really like the road work that I am putting in.  Felt a bit a shin splint coming on, but I was able to work around them some. DD was 100 leg raises that was easier than I thought they would be – my body is really fit, I blew them out without issue.  Added 5.8miles to my total distance on my to OKC via Benton. I am moving now!..Ciao!
