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!

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.

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.

    • You don't need a fitting for this and honestly I don't think I would trust a fitter to get you any better off than you can achieve by yourself. I put a youtube link on here a couple months ago to my video about building an extra long driver. An extra long driver is not a one and done deal, even more so than the rest of the bag (which is coincidentally why I don't believe in most modern fitting practices). It's trial and error and making small tweaks to the set up. What I can recommend are a couple things to increase your chance of success. First make sure you have a driver head that you can remove weight from. Slider weights or weight screws doesn't matter but you need to be able to lighten the head when going from 45 and change to 47 or 48 both for swing weight and shaft stability. Second, go with a lighter shaft than you typically use, say 5-10g. Third I would say go with a softer shaft over a stiffer one. The worst thing you can do with an extra long driver is rush the downswing from the top. This is why you see so many people lose the ball right or not pick up any club head speed. A softer shaft in general will allow for a smoother transition as you can feel the load of the shaft and don't need to force it.
    • That is exactly what I was thinking. Since all the reviews I have seen indicate that with a longer shaft the swing weight is increased and at a certain length swing speed is actually diminished, I was thinking of trying a longer, but more flexible and lighter shaft to see if I can mitigate the additional swing weight and pick up a little swing speed and a few more yards. I have also read that the additional swing weight could shallow your swing a bit, which depending on your swing might not be a bad thing. I imagine there could be some club fitters out there who are reading this thread and rolling their eyes, but hey, what the heck! There are some pretty decent older shafts out there at low prices that one can experiment with. We might as well have a little fun as the world implodes around us! LOL.  
    • Lessons (2/20 1st lesson)and practice in the offseason(2/21 start). Continue lessons but more spread out in season.  Buy a full mat to use in backyard with net. Actually practice what is shown to me in lessons.  Stop being that awful at golf!

    • Welcome to TST.  Yes, golf can be frustrating. Part of the game is learning to deal with the frustration.   Breaking 90 in your 1st year sounds impressive to me. Good job.
