May Is Here! Time To Get Cut, Time To Work Hard…

May is officially here!  It has been a crazy couple months for me but now the Summer is right around the corner.

I have spent the last several months studying (and passing) for a licensing test at work and then several weeks later my son was born!

Typically, I start my summer diet around St. Patrick’s Day, +/- a week or two depending on my body weight.

This year I am already down 14 lbs from my peak weight of 178 and I have been adding cardio to my workouts 3-4x a week.

Although my training has been going good, I am still 2-3 weeks behind from the shape that I would like to be in.  Traditionally, I always try to be in “beach ready” shape by Memorial Day weekend.

Living in the North East (NYC), Memorial Day weekend was always considered the first party weekend of the summer.

By the end of May I should be able to reach the proper body weight that I want, but I am still slightly behind on the shape I want to be in.

At this time of year I would like my mile to be under 6 minutes, my 3 mile time to be around 21 and I also want to be sprinting consistently.

May is the time of year to TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS.

No more screwing around, I want to kill my body this month.

I still remember my senior year of High School when I was running track and field.  I had a disappointing winter season and I was depressed that my last season was coming to an end and I didn’t win any races.

We had a week and half off from school for Easter break and I decided to go nuts.

Over a 10-day break I went to the gym and track for 9 days in a row and just killed myself with some brutal workouts.

When I came back from vacation I was in the best shape of my life.

I won 3 of my first 4 races and I took 5-6 seconds off my 400 meter time.

It’s very easy to get complacent in your training.  Plenty of people show up to the gym consistently for years, but barely make any process.  They are just maintaining.

Not this year.

And not under my watch.

I have no excuses.  My son is born and god-willing seems to be a healthy boy so far.

The weather is getting nice out.

Time to reclaim my throne as the KING!
