Your Workout Today

Started running, well, more like jogging, regularly again. Did 5K earlier today and 5K every other day for the past month, plus the weight bearing stuff - pushups, pullups, ab work on the no run days. Hopefully the body will stay injury free, running is super high impact (add in golf, not exactly great for the back), not going for speed, taking it easy with 9.5 minute miles, going for the aerobic workout and the mini dopamine high. Will have to dust off the road bike to reduce the wear and tear on the body.

Walked 18. Left my smartphone in my pocket while walking 18, curious what the pedometer numbers would be. It recorded approximately 16,390 steps for the round. Here's what the profile looks like. I thought a round was like a 5 mile walk, or around 10K steps. Admittedly, was playing army golf. Plus lots of searching for balls. 16K steps is around 7.5 miles, so something screwy with the perdometer app.

Update: The mores of a metropolis dweller combined with a round of golf, may still go out again tonight. So busy, skipped lunch. This is how you lose weight without "trying".

Did not want to go jogging this morning, but forced myself to do the 5K. One may be tired and grumpy at first, but there are never any regrets afterwards.. And the weather was really nice, finally, sun and warmth. And nice views of the feminine persuasion along the way.

Only if you hit them straight ;-) and without much distance between the green and the next tee.

My workout was yard work most of the day. Cut out and cut down a lot of branches from our oak tree out back. Don't have a pole chainsaw or chainsaw, did it using garden tools and a manual pole saw. Took most of the day and was necessary. Then spread bug poison granules and sprayed bug poison around house and back yard. Drank 5 16oz bottles of water and a large Gatorade and still sweated out about 2lbs of water weight. 

Going to start doing a little exercise in the mornings in addition to my evening walks. Wife wants to get in shape before our cruise in February.

I glanced at this quickly and thought it was a bench press for a second... :bugout:

Haha, no, that's my deadlift.

My bench is only 165 and I last got that up for two sets of four reps.

But I do want to thank @Slice of Life for providing guidance when I first took on this endeavor.

Just looking at that bar makes my back hurt. 

I know deadlifts are supposed to be the bee's knees, but I'm forever worried about technique as so forth.

Yah, I lift the weight I can and only go up 10 pounds when I can get six reps in a set so I can go up in weight without hurting myself and maintaining proper form.

When I'm in the flat lands of Florida, I do push ups, sit ups, and squats (no weights) as part of my workout routine, but about a week ago, I started doing planks.   By which I mean, holding the body parallel to the floor supported by only your feet and elbows.   I never would have believed how hard that is.  I can only do a plank for about 45 seconds.   And the one where you raise one foot is even more difficult.  

I have read that planks will strengthen the core, and build the muscles that protect the lower back.

    • Played Umstead with my brother again today.  I shot 40-42 for a solid 82. The front was consistent, four bogeys and five pars. A par on the par-5 ninth was a bit disappointing since I was on the fringe in two with about a 15-footer for eagle, but it is what it is. On the back I made two doubles on 15 (jail on approach shot) and 16 (drive hooked OB) but otherwise solid: five pars and two bogeys. So I was able to keep huge numbers off the card for the most part. It was a fun day. My brother also reached a milestone today: he went 46-43 for 89 and broke 90 for the first time! He only had one really bad hole (tripled 5), and a birdie on 10 jumpstarted him. It was fun to watch! I’m playing Hillandale with a buddy tomorrow morning, so stay tuned! 
    • I just sent these into Evolvr, so I'm not asking for comment, so much as using this thread as a swing diary whenever I remember to do so.   and  
    • Day 121.  I did fifteen minutes of the step-turn-step-turn drill and ten minutes of full swings (all with a 6-iron) indoors before heading out to a nearby course to get some video at the range for Evolvr. 
    • Day 1: 07/04/2022 Made it to the range yesterday and worked through a small bucket of balls. I was working on getting hands down quicker and getting club on a more shallow plane. The hands are looking better but could still be more shallow. Hitting probably 95% off the toe which I think may be due to not rotating enough in downswing. I've tried to slow down hips in an effort to catch hands/arms up but need to work on incorporating both back into the swing. 
    • Yeah, my busy season at work ran unexpectedly later into the year but it should be over now so even though I've only played like the or four rounds this year, hoping to massively increase that figure. Hope things get better for you soon!
