I haven't got much left to do until I've caught up to the present in this blog. Although I've got a whole year I still need to fill everyone in on there are only a few things that are significant and worth writing about, so it shouldn't take a lot of posts.

Date of routine: Early spring 2014 - September 2014

Around this time, I decided to work on my running. Most of the running I had done before then was shorter distance with more of a focus on speed (I would usually run...

Earlier this year I did a routine to work on my muscular endurance. Below is what I did.

1) Sit ups - I did 1000 repetitions in as short an amount of time as possible, and worked on decreasing that time.

2) Weight swinging - By this time I was able to do 200 repetitions on each side, which is significantly more than I was able to do the previous year. Towards the end of me using this routine I had built up to 400. I did just one set on each side rather than doing a lot

I've been doing some weight lifting between September and November last year. Bellow was my routine.

1) Deadlift
2) Overhead press
3) Bent over row

I increaced the weight with each set to warm up until I reached where I couldn't go any heavier. Since I was lifting the maximum weight I could this routine allowed me to build quite a lot of strength, but it's not quite as good for endurance due to the low volume.

Last summer, as usual, I made use of the time for training. I'll post my routine here.

I had separate "strength" and "endurance" days so I could focus mostly on one or the other at a time. Doing a lot of endurance and stamina training makes it a lot harder to use my maximum strength, so I find it's much more effective not to focus on both on the same day.

Below is my routine. I've written it how it was on paper when I originally wrote it last summer,...

Around May and June last year I decided to build the habit of running after college. On days I didn't run I still went outside to maintain the habit. As soon as I arrived home I'd hydrate myself and freshen up, then go straight outside whether I was running or not. This way I never felt tempted to just stay in and relax, because going out just felt natural.

I had two different running routines. One was running normally, and the other was doing sprints.

The running involved...
