    Wow when this thread was first started in 2012 I was just turning 40. Now I'm 48 so inching toward the end of this decade. This is the decade where I gained a ton of weight, lost a bunch, and got fit - again. Rediscovered a love of running during this crazy stay at home time. I ran a virtual 5K to recognize Memorial Day and now I am trying to set new goals. Not sure where to go from here but I hope to be in great health mentally and physically by my 50th.

    nicely done, caramel

    I am switching up my workout cadence:

    Day 1 - heavy weights
    Day 2 - cardio step
    Day 3 - yoga
    Day 4 - cardio step

    ...repeat 4-day cycle, walk outside when I can, and take rest days when I am feeling unmotivated.

    Good to see the regulars are still at it.

    I resumed training with my coach on June 1st, so this is a "testing week" to check my fitness and set my training zones for the next 8 week block. Two run tests and two bike tests scheduled. Did the 5k run test yesterday and a 20minute FTP bike test today, and they both hurt, lol. Next up is a 10k run test on Friday, and a final bike power test on Sunday. Then I am done! :)

    Nicely done, djproulx!

    I started a calorie-restriction diet on Wednesday. I do not have a scale at home, so I will work with my tape measure....I realized twelve weeks has passed in the Pandemic and I have not lost the inches that I wanted to. I will restrict calories for the next twelve weeks to push the inches into a downward trajectory. BOOM!

    My gym finally opened up and I got to lift yesterday for the first time months, and it was GLORIOUS!

    Then I woke up this morning and the DOMS were oh, so very real, and that too is GLORIOUS, just in a different way, lol. Boy, am I glad I had the wisdom to reduce the weights to 50% normal.

    At my age, and given my current soreness level, I almost wonder if I am more excited about the prospect of the hot tub being available once again than I am about being able to lift lol.
