    I just keep doing Sydney's workout each morning, followed by either fitoutsidethebox, Yvette Bachman, or Jenny Ford. And I go for a run a couple times a week, usually.
    Today was Sydney's leg day and Yvette's kickboxing.
    I'm feeling pretty good for being over 40! No more chronic back pain😁 I do have some trouble with sore heels/Achilles, so I ice my knees and heels after runs. It really helps with recovery.

    Hey all, I'm continuing to rebuild after taking a month off. This is my second build week after run and bike tests were done. Had a bike trainer session yesterday. My run today is hill repeats (oh joy!) At some point soon, I'll begin open water swimming, since the pools remain closed and I prefer OWS to doing laps.

    @DancingMoosie - Best of luck with the Achilles. Having missed a year of racing due to chronic achilles inflammation, I learned that self care is key, including calf stretching.

    Deadlifts, and squats today. Working my way back up the mountain. Meanwhile, checking around for a bench as a back up plan.

    Aahh... deadlifts and squats...I haven't done "real" ones since early March! My "heavy" bar at home is only 50lbs😢

    I have now done a lifting session for each body part, with LOTS of time spent in the hot tub after for recovery so I can continue to move, lol. Something I noticed is different body parts required different amounts of weight reduction. To whit, my chest/shoulders day I had to drop weights by a good 25% or more; back day, maybe 10%; while leg day I dropped 10# on my deadlift and nothing on squats and hip thrust.

    Checking in with y'all. Lifting workout yesterday morning- deadlifts with no pain - my back feels fine today. I think the muscles are healed. Onward and upward.

    The daily dog walks continue. Have met a couple of folks along my usual route. It's always nice to make some new acquaintances.

    Planning a combination birthday/Father's Day dinner tomorrow. HAHA! You gotta' celebrate those granddaughter's birthdays!

    Have an awesome weekend, everyone!

    Welcome. They're not checking ID's here. Or they wouldn't allow this old man in here. HAHA! 😊

    I'm still following Sydney Cummings, running, and doing step/ walking/ aerobics videos. Usually around 2 hrs/day.

    I am starting over and trying to cope with my strength loss.

    Was supposed to compete in May and for obvious reasons it was postponed to November. I'm now on a ramp up program to get back on track.

    Today is day 2 and I can't feel anything on my body. Thank goodness for Godsmack, Disturbed and The Hu as those guitars gave me the inner strength i needed to push through.

    Has your gym reopened? Do you a plan in mind for when you return?

    We will reach the mountain tops once again.

    Hey kids, Happy Monday.
    My body is in shock for sure. I REALLY DISLIKE MY COACH RIGHT NOW!!!!LOL . The ramp up program is DEFINITELY a shock to my entire body. I had no idea sandbags were so darn heavy. I am happy as a pig in mud to be back at the gym. The Hu, Godsmack and Disturbed was the playlist of choice to keep me in the ZONE.
    I am pooped.
    Have a good night kids

    My "gym" is at work, and I'm not at work. I don't know if they will open it to staff when we go back, just because it will be one more area to be sanitized I have no idea what to expect, so I'm just doing Sydney Cummings "summertime fine 2.0" 12 week program plus whatever cardio I want to add. If there is another program online that would be better, please share!
