Uh actually it's only partially true... You need to teach your body to cope with continued effort. Sprints and short bursts of effort will only work your cardio and legs so far. Before marathons we are taught to put "mileage" into our legs so our body builds muscle memory.
Believe me, when dealing with anything longer than an half marathon, you'll break and never finish your race.
Thanks for your help guys! The race is in September so I don't think there's enough time to get fully ready but whatever. Just do it
Did the Operator Ugly Test from Military Athlete last night:
Bench Press Max Reps @ 185# x 30 reps
Front Squat max Reps @ 185# x 20 reps
Deadlift Max Reps in 60 secs @ 225# x 26 reps
25m Sprint Max reps in 4 rounds 60 secs go/60 secs rest x 36 reps
Pull-up Max (Dead hang) x 18 reps
Sand Bag Get-ups Max Reps in 10 min @ 80# x 50 reps (divide this # by 2 for the final score)
3 mile run in under 30 min x 27 min
Total score was 155 which puts me above a passing score of 100 and in the catagory of "respectable score" for my weight class (I weighed 257 last night).

I hate labels but I follow the principles behind the Paleo diet. Lean meats, fruits, vegetables and nuts. It's not low carb but shifts carbohydrate intake from processed grains and sugars to more nutrient dense fruits and veggies. The only thing that I do different is that I do dairy. As far as strictness I am generally about 80%-85% compliant, being stricter in the spring/summer and more lenient in the fall/winter.
Anyone have hint to what to do with skin peeling from my toes in chunks? They also smell pretty horrid.
I have to be on my legs whole day and wear safety shoes so they sweat the whole day. Thats what causes it.
Get an anti mank cream to kill the bug, apply it. Look at some bamboo fibre socks, they'll sort your sweating issues out.
Thanks for the hint.
Also wear joggers socks in your boots. I had a similar problem in my steel toed. I swap socks in midday and apply some powder as well. Keeps my feet dry
