Race went very well. Ended up running 13.51 miles, in 1:54:43...so an 8:30 miles pace. My main goal was under 2 hours, with a secondary goal of 1:55. So I JUST barely beat it!

Nice!

Very cool getting into it for the first time. Just watch a lot of youtube videos...if you find the AthleanX videos, Jeff is very knowledgable and may be able to help you out.

Not really the first time, but things have changed since my gym rat days of the early 80's, least of all the reasons for working out. I'll definitely check out the videos. Thanks.

Ah ok, back at it after the long hiatus. Been there...

Ok a week ago I did the Boulder IM. Now that that is out of the way I can get back to my golf game. The training made my legs and hips really tight and I think it hurt my game by reducing flexibility. Time to work on flexibility in the gym and hit the range instead of 15 mile runs and 100 mile bike rides.

I restarted Insanity a few days ago and planning to take that through for the next 2 months or so. I haven't touched it in two and a half years and had forgotten how much I love/hate it! Should definitely improve my flexibility and hopefully lose a stone or so - at least, that's the aim by the end of the year.

Only rode 25 miles to the GWB and back, one last ride before it gets cold and wanted to see the foliage, but ~2K feet of climbing. A bit out of shape right now so that climb at mile 20 harder than it used to be. Thank God for the granny gear. The Filling Station the reward at the end of the ride though. Great hamburgers.

I am back on the 5/3/1 lifting program for the winter. I lost substantial muscle mass this year when I slacked off on the weightlifting. It seems as I approach 40 it is harder and harder to slack and get away with it. Yesterday was bench press day.

I did 40 mins on the elliptical machine this morning. After work, I will do treadmill walk run intervals, 2 mins walking, 1 min running alternating for 30 mins in duration. Next, 3 sets of 8 reps of Dumbbell Power Clean and push press, the last set using 35 lb dumbbells. 10 mins of static stretching the lower body. About 1.5 hours later, I will hit plastic golf balls with my irons for 10 mins.

I did some bench press today. 3 sets of 5 reps. Last set with 200 lbs. I do my bench presses with a pause at the bottom on my chest for 3 secs, then explode upward. Powerlifting style. Then finished my workout with 30 mins of Elliptical machine intervals.I am 58 years old, 5'8" 185 lbs. I have always had a stocky built.

    • They must have heard me whining.. lol.
    • I bought a sleeve of Taylormade Tour Response with the large green stripe.  I like them, and the way I’ve seen people line up putts is to line the big green stripe 90 degrees to where they are aiming, so unlike the triple track or single line guides that point at your line, it’s the other way. I’ve started doing that with any ball now, even lining up off the tee.   Generally I play Titleist ProV1 regular or X, with some TP5 and Chrome Soft Triple Track thrown in
    • - No need to be greedy here.  They are lying three (two stroke penalty), you are lying one.  Play for par as the best they can do is hole out for bogie.   - Play to the safe part of the green, no need to sucker pin into trouble.  In LSW, Erik covers why playing to the safer part of the green is smarter course management.  20ft for birdie is likely a two-putt for par, just as a good lag putt from 40ft is a two-putt for par.  Halve the hole and move on.   - When we play our casual men's best ball, we always let the accurate guys go first then we unleash the bomber.  I would do the same here, let the accurate guy get theirs in play as close as they can.  This sets up the bomber to hit a good driveable shot into the green for the win!  IF they OB the ball,  you are still looking at a decent attempt for birdie by the accurate one.    
    • I, on average, find 4 to 8 balls a round.  Many of them new. 200+ rounds a year so I find at least 800 balls every year. So, let's say I get the opportunity to play a hole or so with lots and lots of different type balls.  The following are balls I give to my buddies that I find...Snell, Vice, Kirkland, Top Flite, Srixon, Titleist AVX along with anything pink, orange, red.   I play mostly Bridgestone balls, the e12 Control.  Do not like it as well as the e12 Spin that was discontinued.  I also play the Callaway Supersoft.  But, as I said, I get to try lots of other balls.  Just hard to find the feel on all shots on the balls I described I give away.   The last ball I found was a TaylorMade TP5 Yellow.  Couple years back I used to play the TP5X white.  I found the TP5 played vey well.  I liked the feel.  Probably won't switch to it but overall a very good golf ball.   BTW, maybe it is because I am old but I hate the phrase where the word "game" is used instead of "play".  I don't game any balls, I play Bridgestone.  Now, the grouchy old man has spoken.  😁
    • Tiger Woods missed US Open to prepare for 150th Open Championship at St Andrews - BBC Sport Tiger Woods says he missed last month's US Open to "give it at least one more run at a high level" on the Old Course at next week's 150th Open... So now we know he likes to read Dean Koontz.
