Seems like it’s time to suck it up and get serious.
I’ve done the V-Diet once before for 10 days and not only dropped 6 lbs but a good 2 minutes off my 5 k time.
This time around I’m going to go for the full 6 weeks.
Truth is, I’ve been slacking. I’m still in good shape because I play semi pro volleyball, but nothing compared to when I ran the 400m in college.
So it’s time to face the facts and drop a lot of excess fat.
I’ve got a good strength background. I’m about 30% of my strongest days of competitive powerlifting:
It’s the volleyball off season now, so I’m training to come back more generally fit in everyway.
My plan is to lean out using the V-Diet and then add a 12 week strength training phase, followed by a full 12 week 400 meter training phase.
I’m doing this because it’s where I have the most experience and have gotten the best results in the past.
My first major challenge is keeping a log.
It’s been my biggest down fall.
I’ve avoided public tracking all my life. So fear #1 faced.
My start date for the V-Diet is today, September 8th and my end date is October 19th.
I took a couple (kinda lame) before and after pictures this morning. I just got back from a trip to Bali, so this is probably the worst shape I’ve been in over the past few months.
It’s a great place to start.
