Optimum Health

In short the only way to achieve Optimum Health is two fold.  One of course your diet and two cardiovascular conditioning.  Ideally, 3x/wk weights and run/walk and 6 days vigilance on eating clean.  Im not going to get into what is "clean eating" in this post.  We'll save that for another post.
I am almost at my target weight of 245 lbs.  I am currently 248 down from 293 in January.

I would like to examine running/walking, this is MY observation. ( 1-2.5 miles 3-4x/week) at aerobic capacity.  
Cardiovascular output improvement = healthy heart
Lower BP
Organ shifting 
Increase blood flow = faster recovery
Makes a sedentary person stronger
Fat burn
Increase stamina

Bad for hips, knees and ankles
Makes a strength athlete very weak

I personally enjoy the meditative trance I get from running.  A balance is needed for any person who trains physically 4-5x/wk.  Hot and Cold- a sort of Yin and Yang.  Although they are thought of as opposing forces, I look at it as complementary forces.  Exertion (lifting or calethstenics, etc..) is hot while run/walk is cold, use the two to form the perfect balance in the physical realm.  
I will continue on in my new journey and strive for optimum health..
My current training schedule is as follows;
Mon.- run 1.5 miles walk 1 mile
Tues.- Snatches, pulls and back work.  Jump rope and row, 20 min.
Wed.- Run 1.5m walk 1m
Thurs.- Power cleans, press, rear squats and leg work.  Prowler, kb swings, row, 20 min
Fri.- Run 1.5m walk 1m
Sat.- Chest and arm work, walk 1.5 m
Sun.- row, jump rope, kb swing, 20 min.  OR active reast
Take a day off every 15 to 20 days.

New Chapter...

After much thought and vigilance I have decided to retire from Highland Games competition.  I will miss the camaraderie and of course the many friends and great people I have met along the way!!!  I will stay involved in the games on a judging/announcing capacity.
Now on to the next chapter.  I will spend this next year getting my body in top cardiovascular shape.  I will start posting workouts and weight loss progress.
As far as competition, well lets just say there is something in the horizon, but for now I am enjoying training for the sake of training!!
I want to thank ALL my friends and family for their undying support.  Of course my sponsor Biorhythm who followed me from the beginning with my Highland Games endeavor.  And most of all my Love Sharon for having the confidence in me, and giving me that support and push when things got really hard.  Thank you!
