Re: Fitness Checkin

Just got back from another hour run. My legs were dead today, though I did get in a pretty good distance (which, for being dead, means that i got in just about my normal distance ).

Gee, I was just saying that the other day.
Well, most of the weight I lost was muscle mass.
I hate that... especially when it just doesn't 'feel' like you staring back at you in the mirror. I don't know about you, but it really depresses the crap out of me.
It depresses me the most when I think of how hard I worked to put that muscle on in the first place.

But between my work schedule and my gym's crappy hours, I wasn't able to workout as much as I wanted, and I was too busy to eat as often as I needed to. Sucked.

But I'm finally getting back on track!

Went for an hour long run today. Ran almost the entire way, which is only the first or second time I've been able to do that since starting back up. My right hip and foot and left knee were killing me though.
I used to run 10-K races relatively regularly -- but as Nero would say "that was another life" (about 25 years ago).

I look like I'm in decent shape now (at least with my clothes on), but I know I'm not...if I tried to run even one mile, I'd be calling 911. However, my brain and my mid-life crisis are calling me to get back into racing shape and get back to running regularly.

My brain knows I should get back into shape because it's good for my heart, and my mid-life crises wants me to get back into shape so I look good again with my shirt off.

My goal is to be able to compete in 5-K races this year, and 10-K races next year.

I can understand that. Back when I was in HS running track and cross country, I was able to do 5ks and 10ks at a decent pace. Nothing impressive, but I would be able to hold my own against casual runners. However, in recent years my focus has been more on being able to go forever and my speed work has been non-existant, so I honestly don't even try 5ks and 10ks anymore.

Good luck with getting back into it and I hope it treats you well!

Re: Fitness Checkin

I feel as if I peaked last year when I ran a half-marathon. Since then I've developed arthritis in my hip & have had various injuries that have kept me from doing any serious distances. I'm happy now to run 5K (which is my normal weekday jog) at a speed that's only slightly faster than a walk. But hey, I'm moving. It's all part of getting old!

Re: Fitness Checkin

What's this? I had another day off with gorgeous weather? I hope this is the start of a trend. Too bad I don't have another day off for 7 days.

Anyway, I biked again today for about 45 minutes. I think next time I am going to reverse my route so that I START biking into in the wind. Then when I turn around, the return journey will make me feel less like I want to die.

I can't believe how out of shape my legs are.

That sounds like a good plan! I like to arrange my runs so that I finish with the downhill part, as well ... it's much more motivating.

I ran my usual 3.25 mile route yesterday. Today it's weights at the gym.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I had a couple drinks tonight, which prevented me from going to the gym. It's probably a good thing. I had some really good workouts the last 3 days, and it's probably best that I take tonight off and rest.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I'm on my third day of antibiotics for the respiratory & ear infection I picked up. Still sniffly.

I can't wait to be recovered and get back to exercising.

Started running again yesterday, and the weather was so brilliant that I took another lap this morning. Gonna take a day off tomorrow and continue on Monday again.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Yesterday, I went for my first run in nearly two weeks, and in classic, moronic archeryguy form, I decide to run a 25km race. The Pilot Hill 25k is a trail race that is an out and back course that climbs and then descends 1500ft, most of it coming in a short stretch. I ended up putting in 4 hours and 15 minutes, and was in pretty rough shape yesterday afternoon.
