Dutchie I go running in the early morning, before my brain figures out what I'm up to.

Yeah, took the dogs out for my 1st "run". Felt great to be out there again. Not sure my body agreed I sure am lacking fitness and stamina. And it was only 3 kilometers. On the upside, from here on it can only get better.
ETA: did 30min of LB plus 38 min of back, shoulders and biceps. Finished with 10minutes of abs on the stability ball.
40 is probably the biggest deal to me, as now I am an actual bona fide masters runner...
Getting back in shape... Just need it to be a skinnier shape...
Dutchie- Happy to hear you are back at it. No problems to report other than lack of fitness I hope.
Kelly- Welcome to my age group. You would think that it would be easier to place in the masters age group but I have found it is not. Case in point my race today (see below)
Did my annual frustration 10K today. I was actually quite pleased with my performance. My training for this has been spotty at best and I had no hopes of a PR (44:00) but I did manage a 45:06 which given my current conditioning I am very happy with. No where even close to age group awards I finished 14th for my age. A friend of mine in my age group ran a 37:00, finished 15th overall and didn't place for our age group!

Heffa: no complaints and I'm sure my fitness and stamina will be back in a couple of weeks.
congrats on the 10K. I still think you are incredibly fast.
Another doggie run today. Kept Spike on leash cause it was raining and I was in no mood to stand around in the rain if he went after a rabbit or something. This time 3.4K, and it not only felt much better than yesterday, I was a little bit faster too
ETA: added on 30min LB and 30 min of Michael Olajide's Aerobox.
Heffa is fast!
I've done some light running and elliptical this week. Our best buddies have been visiting so I'm mentally refreshed, looks like I'm all repaired (not sore) and ready to get back to it
