You Need To Be In Shape To Burn Fat Quickly…

Hello everyone.

I am now about 3-4 weeks past my winter bulk up and I am slowly starting to hit my cardio workouts hard.

It’s amazing how fast your lose your stamina and endurance.

I can skip weight lifting for 6 months (although I never have) and still walk into the gym and lift some decent weights.

But running is completely different.

Even if you miss as little as 2 weeks in a row, you really lose a lot.

Since I feel that I’ve lost so much, I am trying to run a lot to get back in shape quickly.  Last week I ran hard 4x and this week I plan on running at least 4 or 5 times.

I am still slow and out of shape, but I am definitely improving already.  I think another month of hard training and I might run some half way decent times.

I am also trying to cut weight.

The first 3 weeks I cut about 7 lbs, but a lot of that is garbage weight.  In the beginning of  starting a new diet, mostly everyone will lose a couple lb’s quickly.

It’s after you lose the first 10 lb’s, that it starts to get more difficult.

Usually if I run hard 3 or 4x a week I will keep cutting weight.  But, its hard to run when you are in crappy shape.

If I can only run 2 miles in 15 minutes, it’s harder to lose weight compared to when I can run 3 miles in 19:30.

When I finally get back into good shape, I can start killing my workouts.

Better shape=more intensity=more body fat loss.

In late March I am going to a spring break trip (Hilton Head/Savannah), so it is keeping me motivated to work out hard.

Although it was 40 degrees in NYC today, I know it will be around 75-80 by the time I head down South.
