And eat. And sleep to get your aerobic exercise. And don't do it again until all the soreness has disappeared indicating full recovery.
Ok, you're off the hook... this time. Wink

Seriously, that sounds grueling.

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

The goal in any exercise routine, like any activity in life, is to minimize the pain. No pain, big gains. Big Grin

Running seems to have drastically cut into my strength training. It seems to have really eaten away at my muscle mass and as a result I am not quite as strong as before. Going to dial back from a 10k 3 times a week to a 5k and see how that goes.

Cardio vs strength is always a frustrating balancing act, given the body's tendency to burn both muscle and fat for energy. Best way to prevent that from happening, at least as far as bro science and endocrinology seems to indicate, is to precede running or other cardio with heavy lifting and to make sure you're getting enough protein for your body to stay in muscle building mode as opposed to muscle cannibalizing mode Big Grin
I was kind of figuring that. I am going to have to make some dietary and work schedule changes to get the results I want.

Had to do a little repair on the treadmill but it is good now. I am out of town for a few days so I will resort to old fashioned walking.

RE: Atheists who work out
I ran again last night for the first time since the marathon. It took me 2 weeks because a) that cold turned out not to be so mild after all and b) I seem to have strained my calf. I had felt the calf pain during the marathon, but was hoping it wouldn't be any big deal since I was able to run the last 17 miles on it without it getting significantly worse. But it has continued to hurt, but only when I squat down, for the 2 weeks. So last night I ran 3 miles with a calf sleeve as a precaution. The calf seemed ok, but not 100% better so I'll be taking it easy (short slow runs) for awhile. And the cold apparently isn't out of my system completely because my heart rate was way too high especially since I was running slowly. But the main thing is I was glad to be back out there again. Yes

RE: Atheists who work out
Yoga question for Jennybee. Shy So I'm not super active, but I do walk 30 minutes a night for 5 days then take the 6th night off, rinse and repeat. I like walking, even though I basically just walk from one end of our apartment to the other. But lately I feel like maybe I want to mix things up or toss something different in there now and then, and I was thinking about yoga. Even if I do it on just two of my exercise nights. Do you have any yoga series on YouTube that maybe you'd recommend? Something for beginners? Or any other resources I might could check out? Thanks!!! Big Grin
