Hey all, just got back from the army's SERE (survival,evasion,resistance,escape) school which came down to a conclusion week at the end of it.... with relative no food + major physical activity (it was winter afterall) or about 300- calories a day.... heck, probably closer to 200 (grass & nifty weeds isn't that filling). Anyways, got back and did the usual binge of the usual terrible food everyone dreams on and drives you on during 18 degree weather.
Anyone go from a similiar situation to back into training with any success..... my mission plan tomorrow is to first.... digest the disgusting amount of food (or end up throwing it up.... ill let my stomach decide that one) and give my body about 2 or 3 days of no workout / 2500 caloric..... average guy days.... to get my stomach back to what it was. Then go down a level in training..... and do the 10 percent rule to finally get back to wear i was.....
Phyisically i went into the school being about 175 at 5'10'' and ended at 153.... boy, i thought i was relatively inshape/inthin... ive probably lost atleast 2-4 inches on my stomach...... it was to the point where i was seeing hips and stuff which is strange for me. (being a guy) and always having a good amount of muscle.
well... any thoughts how to get back into the ususal ironman training. Perhaps i different type of training, foods or something else. thks in advance for answers.... kind of a unique situation im in,
