[B]Active Rest Day[/B]

I did 25 minutes of power yoga that I followed along with on the local On Demand channel. It was pretty advanced, I guess, but I did rather well.

I definitely need more flexibility.

I felt pretty solid, so I attempted 375#. Needless to say, I failed at that weight...It would have been a new 1RM for me but I couldn't get out of the hole.

I was satisfied though because I haven't been strength biased, especially with squats, since I hurt my back. Maybe at a later period, I'll begin doing more.

I was born and partially raised in SA. I finally got stationed here before I retired last year.

I can offer whatever advice that I can, and hope to follow you and your workouts. Hopefully, I can get some running pointers from you.

I can respect a Texas boy. If only I could find a way to get stationed there, however, I never see that happening.
