I generally do 3 miles twice a week during the weekdays. And then on Saturday or Sunday morning (whichever one I'm less hungover on), I'll do a longer run. And I've been just adding an extra mile to every weekend run.

One of these days I'll actually do a marathon. Probably next year.

Between starting keto again and the extreme heat, last night's 3 miles sucked so hard.

I need to get back into running. But my neighborhood is hell. I live on a mountain so the neighborhood loop has about 500 feet of elevation change.

Yea, that's awful. I just run around the harbor so it's flat as flat can be. Every now and then I force myself to go out of my way to incorporate this one long gradual hill.

Running on the keto diet sounds horrible. How do you get the energy to run 3+ miles with no carbs?

To be honest, I was exhausted yesterday and cut it short at 2.5. But two years ago I ran while doing keto all the time. It's only hard at the very beginning when you go through the "flu" portion. I just would make sure to have a string cheese a little more than an hour before I ran.

That sounds terrible. I just got back to working out about a month ago, and I'm on a 3 day a week routine. Legs, back, chest/arms. It's so much harder finding time these days.

After a bunch of time off I worked my way back up to 300 on bench. Current plan is to add as much muscle as I can the next month, take off the end of December, and then try to lose weight and maintain to start next year.

Also I have a peloton and it's fun weee.

What makes it better than a regular stationary bike? I don't really get it.

getting to tell people you have a peloton makes it better than a dumb stationary bike

The gap between a different bike with the peloton app and an ipad probably isn't much, but the app and classes are pretty good. I use it for yoga/stretching/walking/some weight stuff in addition to cycling. There's a level of competitiveness you get from it that you wouldn't from just riding without the classes/metrics on screen.

Also the bike itself is really good and insanely quiet.

Also you get to brag about it. And the instructors are fine as fuck. And pretty funny.

I bought a Keiser M3 like three years ago, and it was worth every penny.

I was under the impression that OT was cardio and strength training.
