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.

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.

Part of today's WOD... Took me 13:30.  Do it all the way down and then back up the ladder in reverse.

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.
