I did squats for the first time in forever on Sunday. Tried to run yesterday and my legs died. Complete jello.

The 48 hours after first leg day is basically only good for stretching and crying.

Yup. I tried to run 3 miles. Got about 1.5 in and had to stop. Walked the last 1.5 with maybe a few stretches of running a couple hundred meters. Then promptly hit the couch and didn't move the rest of the night. Feel pretty good today though.

Stall mats from tractor supply co. You'll have to clean them and air them out for a day or two because they smell pretty bad at first, but they're unbeatable for price, durability, etc.

What sort of home gym are you building? Are we talking some dumbbells and a bench, or full squat rack/full bench etc?

Rack, barbell, weights, treadmill will be in there, and a deadlift platform.

Nice! Nepg is right about getting the heavy duty rubber mats, especially for the squat rack/deadlift platform. Other than tht it'll just be personal preference. Photos when you're done, please.

Yessir. I have before and after photos of my garage.. it was a fucking LITERAL DISASTER AREA before I got in there and cleaned it all out. Excited to get it all fleshed out and done!

Starting strength is legit if you’re trying to get back into it. Just make sure you start light, very light. Some people start out doing like 80% of their current 5 rep maxes and screw themselves up pretty good.

My building's gym is closed and I went on a run outside today. Awful. Just absolutely horrendous. How do people do this regularly?

Depends on the weather. I'm sure it sucks in Minny.

Running sucks. But I’m at the point where I can run a 5k at a reasonable pace and not want to die and that’s good enough for me.

I prefer deck of cards as my quarantine workout.

it’s a lot of stress on the joints. I ran cross country for a long long time and I’m paying the price for it.

This might sound dumb; I’ll always have a soft spot for long distance running because I’ve been doing it since I was 11 but I’ve noticed that sprinting intervals does more for me. I look insane on trails but oh well.
