    I had a bout with PF a few years ago. It was so painful I couldn't stand it.
    Orthopedic insoles and rolling foot on frozen Gatorade bottle fixed me up after a few weeks.

    No build will ever top going through major weight loss. Although the process is similar. Work like hell for months and it seems like your getting nowhere. Then one day progress shows, and motivation hits a higher gear. I was standing at the 300lb threshold before I realized it. Looking back I see why I never had many invites to food related functions lol.

    Recommendations? I’ve been rolling on a tennis ball and took two weeks off from running.

    I'm not a good person to ask. I've been fighting it for 13 years. I just don't want to see anyone else have to deal with it.

    I ended up doing 5 sets of dumbbell rows tonight while my wife was on the elliptical, and my son was on the treadmill.

    Tonight was good.

    10min EMOM:
    5 deadlifts(225)
    10 hand release pushups

    Both movements in one minute, repeat every minute.

    Then 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 of strict pullups and hand stand push ups. Finished in 13:25. Went unbroken on all my HSPUs which was a huge win for me as they have been something I've struggled with.

    Weight this morning was 201.3 :bounce2:

    Got about 2hrs worth of whiffle ball in yesterday...it was frickin hot. I think they extended the distance between bases, reckon it’s time to start increasing the cardio.

    60+ miles this morning and a Excite Bikes shop ride coming up at 6 pm out at RRT.

    Looks like I'm FB famous, or maybe it's just our awesome new blue shop kits....

    Screenshot_20190527-164430.png Hiked the pups this am to beat the heat. Then rode a 10 mile loop in Pisgah with my wife that started with a 4 mile climb from the fish hatchery.
    Needless to say, legs are a bit sore

    Nothing formal but worked in the yard and on the blue bucket Fri and Saturday like I was 25 again. Continued the trend Sunday and damn near fell out in the yard. It was A/C and racing all afternoon after that. Today was finding waterfalls with the family at Hanging Rock.

    Maybe I need to start a more formal workout routine and/or come to piece with the fact that I ain’t a spring chicken anymore. Nahhh!

    Murph was yesterday. 20lb weight vest. Finished in 63:10. Did all pullups/pushups/squats as prescribed. I did partition it. Pretty sore today.

    Bigger news was this happened last Friday. First time I've been under 200lbs since 2006

    Next year I'm going to try and do it straight through. This was the first time I did Rx with a vest. Last time I did it, I did 50 pullups and 50 ring rows and wore a vest. That time was 59:30. So, I'll take the 3min slower time with all the pullups.
