That sounds like Rippetoe's 3x5 routine, is it not?

Ran 6 miles yesterday in 1:15 with the dog so that included the stops and short walk to through his poop in the trash can.  I'm not jogging with sh$t in my hand.  Stretched before and after.  I'm getting some achelles tendinitous I think.  Both are sore and ache a little.  Kind of sucks but being so heavy right now can't be good for them.

But anyway, going to sign up in a marathon in May to do something different so going to quit lifting heavy and drinking.  Hopefully my tendons feel better.  I'm stretching like crazy but just going to work through it until it becomes painful.  I wouldn't descibe it as pain, just annoying.

Went for my first run in 2 months, finally I think my knee is healed (after multiple physio sessions). Ran 3.5km at 6 min/km. Not too bad although I have been keeping my fitness up with plenty of mountain biking. Doing a 15km run end of next month (with an 700m vertical climb) so got my work cut out for that.

Couch to 5K, repeating Week 5, Day 1. It's changed since 10 days ago when I last ran, and the app is now named "Run 5K" or something. I don't know why, or why the program changed (last time it was three 5:00 runs with 3:00 between. This time it was 5:00, 7:00, 5:00 with 2:00 between).
Anyway, my calf feels okay. I ran the out part in slush and then turned around because right around the yellow bike rental the path became snowy and slushy. A good chunk of my run was through that. I've estimated the distance as well (hence the snap to roads) because the RunKeeper app had me running 27 miles all around Erie. I estimate that my pace was in the low to mid-9:00.
I have a 610 with the HRM. I'm going to wait to use that until I'm not doing so many weird intervals. I'll use that when I'm just out running for x minutes at a time, or something.
Wore the Kinvara 2s today. Felt great. Toes got a bit cold when I was squishing slush (mostly onto my left foot - which indicates I run slightly differently). They're stuffed with newspaper currently.

Did spinning class and a little heavy lifting today.  Did 4 excercises for my back.  Two variations of pull downs, bent over dumb bell rows, and flys.  Time was limited becuase of spinning class.  Got a good workout.

Week 5 Day 2 of the new (revised) Run 5K (formerly C25K) app.
I started the timer when I had a little walking (warmup) left and stopped it as I walked home. The runs were 5:00, 8:00, and 2:00 with 2:00 between them, so that's 15:00 running and 5:40 walking.
I'm still cautious about my left calf. So I thought I ran a bit more slowly - honestly I thought I was shooting for 10:00 run segments - then I check the RunKeeper app on my phone and it shows that I'd gone 2.03 miles in less than 21 minutes, so that's barely 10:00 including the 5:40 walking!
I felt fine the whole time, too. Calf was noticeably "not 100%" but it's mild discomfort at best. I'm icing it as a preventative measure more than anything else.
Was 60 degrees outside! Blue skies, windy as heck (it felt into the wind most of the time too)! I've checked the RunKeeper mapping a few times, it's accurate. I averaged running speeds of about 8:30, 9:15, and 8:00. The 9:15 includes running in place waiting for traffic, too.

Lifted last night.  Did chest and Tris.  Then tons of streches and ab stuff.  I've got some shoulder problems so I can't do much with my chest.  I do flat bench with my elbows really close to my body, close grip DB flat bench, decline, and then a whole bunch of tri stuff.  Overall, I'm happy with my strength gains in the past two months.  I can see and feel the changes.

    • If you gave me 6 days a week with 4 hours each, I would probably play 3 of those days and then dedicate specific days for training and practice.  So here you go:  M-W-F money games. With real money you don't want to lose.  T - Short game and putting off course and on course with an hour of pt Th - Full swing - off and on course with an hour of pt  Sat - Speed training, recap where you need help with an hour of pt  Sunday - Day off 
    • To Matt's point. There was a guy, Dan McLaughlin,  once who was convinced if he just spent 10,000 hours practicing golf he'd "master" the sport, or something like that.  I remember when this guy started this. He had a coach. I'd argue the wrong coach. His coach did something like this:  He spent the first I don't know how many hours mastering the 1 foot putt. (I'm not kidding) Then the next umpteen hours mastering the 3 foot putt. Then the 5 foot and so on and so on. Then he was giving a wedge and spent several hundred hours mastering a certain shot (like 25 yards) with the wedge. Then work to master the 50 yard shot, then the 75. Only moving on to the next shot when he "mastered" the previous one. For more than a year, like about a 1/10th of his 10,000 hours he was only allowed to use the 3 clubs. - 2 wedges and a putter.  When I saw the interview with the dude he was like 2 years into his plan and had finally been allowed a full bag of clubs. He was about a quarter of the way through his 10,000 hours.  I remember thinking this is a dumb plan. Why not work on your full swing while you work on putting? You can learn to hit driver while you perfect your wedge distances. Waiting until you master a shot before moving on to the next one is wasting your 10,000 hours. In my opinion.  The coach's philosophy for learning golf this way was that he didn't want McLaughlin just bashing balls down the range day after day. He also said something about McLaughlin needed to start by seeing the ball go in the hole. Which would make it more fun. To which I say Bullsh!t. Hitting awesome drives is fun. Nailing the center of the green from 185 out is fun. Think of how boring it must have been for McLaughlin. "I can't move on to 8 foot putts until I master this f-ing 6 footer." ... "The driver is just a distant dream."  McLaughlin's experiment was doomed from the start. I get that you want structure in your practice plan, but why do it in a way that is so repetitive and painful?  Yes, you need to work on your weaknesses, but it's also fun to do something you are good at every now and then.  When designing a practice plan you need times to continually evaluate and make changes to get the most out of it. Mindlessly beating balls down the range doesn't do that much. But I'd also argue the mindlessly sticking to a practice plan (such as McLaughlin's) also doesn't do that much. You need to regularly look at your progress and where to put your limited time. Even McLaughlin only had 10,000 hours to spend. Why waste so many of them?  BTW - In my humble opinion, this is one of the best threads on developing a practice plan. Yes, the opening post is long. But totally worth the read.  Sorry about the long post. 
    • Metal Spikes OR Soft Spikes, a Foot Dragger is a Foot Dragger and will chew up greens. Soft Spikes were introduced as a way to save costs on replacing Club House Floors!!! 😀
    • Did this really well. Some rounds were more fun than others, of course. But I can't think of a round where I didn't have fun.  Succeeded with this goal, and then exceeded it. My handicap is now 3.9, and I spent most of the summer as a 4. I was setting new handicap lows all summer, which was awesome. As far as the sub-goals: I think I did 5 minutes of daily practice until April. Not 100% sure if I got into May, but I think I did. I'm too lazy to go back and check. This is definitely a good goal to keep and probably extend. I did good on this as well. I did a lot of putting work throughout the summer, and I generally putted better than I have in the past. I didn't track it, so I'm not 100% sure I met the 50% goal for short game and putting, but I definitely came close. I still like this goal for next year, and I might need to shift it more to short game than putting.  I came really close to this goal, but did not quite get there. GHIN has my average score this year as 80.7. I played 24 times, and broke 80 10 times. I also had multiple rounds in the low 70s. There were times in the summer where I was meeting this goal. That is an improvement, and that's why I got my handicap to new lows. I like this goal for me, and I will try for it again.
    • I remember when I lived in Chicago, Ron Santo used to do commercials for a shoe store.  At the time Ron Santo had no feet. They were amputated due to type one diabetes.  Me giving wedge advice is akin to Ron Santo giving shoe advice.  Lots of places do straight up wedge fittings.  I've heard really good things about Edel's fitting process for wedges.
