    Today I walk around block twice today was exhausting but I feel better for it

    You're doing just great, starting with what's a bit of a challenge, but doable. Perfect.

    Lots of us here didn't start being active or athletic from childhood. I sure didn't: I started being routinely active while still obese, very soon after cancer treatment, when I was already in my mid-40s.

    You're in one of the most challenging phases right now, IMO, that phase where we start to make a change in habits. You can amaze yourself with what you'll accomplish, if you just keep going patiently, challenging yourself little by little.

    It's a great sign that you're already feeling good after having done it: Yay! 🙂

    20' yoga and stretching before breakfast.

    In afternoon, 4.8mi walk at 3.8mph. More seasonal weather had returned, temps in upper 30s F, wind chill around freezing because windy. Looked like snow/rain would hold off; thankfully it did.

    Early evening, about 33' stationary bike, easy pace, including the CD.

    I do seem to have taken up running. I'm doing a mild progressive overload - I'll add a couple of minutes each time until I reach 5k.

    I did 2.2k yesterday, in 14 minutes, which is a pace of 6 minutes 28 second. (I find pace a bit of a strange unit for running - I prefer speed. But my Fitbit gives me pace. Mixing units, I think this was 6 miles an hour, so pretty slow.)

    Yesterday I did legs. I would appreciate thoughts if this is too much volume from my weightlifting friends. I had planned to just see if my legs could recover in time for my DL session 3 days after this session. BW 105lb, BF 17-18%. I am currently running PHUL and this is my heavy strength day, with quad/glute focus. Hypertrophy day is my DL session, with focus on hamstrings (although I go heavy on DLs and lighter for the rest).

    Squats 100lb 5x5
    Hip Thrust 185lb 3X8
    Bulg Split squat 25lb DB in each hand 3X6
    Seated Leg Press 240lb 3X8
    Lying leg curl 60lb 3X8
    Seated Calf press 320lb 4X9
    Core 40lb cable crossover 2x10, 8 minute ab workout (bw)

    Definitely feel sore and fatigued in legs and core today and a bit of back from m workout 2 days ago.

    I'm not a dedicated enough lifter to comment, but you are very strong for your weight.

    Today was supersetting day for me. Rowing 250m sprints, five minutes between, doing supersetting between. An hour total workout.

    Pulled the engine out of my wakeboard boat over the weekend. May not sound like much, but climbing in and out of a good sized boat on a trailer, hour...after hour...after hour for three days (not to mention all the wrenching and lifting) was something of a workout. Can't believe it, but re-injured my shoulder (I wasn't even using that arm at the time). I think the AC joint has finally let loose. Dr. this Thursday and we'll go from there. Up at 5AM for some cardio, but shoulder said "No way dude". Damnit.

    I got 20,000 steps in, and then did a bit of lifting.

    I hangboarded, which went well. I then did finger curls (3 sets of 5, 60 kgs). I finished with benching (3 sets of 7, 50 kgs).

    My Dad learned he is in remission, so it was a very good day. He only had two chemo sessions left.
