Nice variation of training in here, keep up the good work.
Where are you running mostly, road or trail?
Thanks, I really like my routine.
The nice thing about my new 2.7 mile loop is that about 1/2 of it is dirt! Also almost exactly half is up hill which I love. I have nearly no pain in my left knee, maybe a dull boo after my 2nd running day in the week. I think it was a muscle imbalance, because I am training my legs hardcore now and it is nearly gone.
I'm settling in nicely and finding my niche in weightlifting. I don't really crave heavy deadlifts anymore, and will never do back or hack squats ever again. I'm saying no to a lot of lifts and variants and never doing them again. I will probably drop the weight on my DB deads and just do stiff legged deads with 100# because I am not comfortable with the popping and clicking coming from my knee. Then when I get a BB I can do some deadlifts, but nothing like the 300+lbs I was pulling. Not worth the risk of injury IMO.
I am quite happy with my lunges and vest+DB box squats even if I could only ever manage to fit 200lbs max on my frame in a clever manner. Still safer, for me, than hack or standard squats.
