Round 2 of the #offcourse workout for time @athleteonfire & a 6 mile run

Ok Scott, here's my time, 23:50 for the workout and it hit me hard.  I'm attributing it to me being a runner adding in workouts rather than me being a 40 year old trying to get in shape!  I changed it up while I did the workout too.  I did smaller sets at first and ripped through a first round, then did a bigger second set of everything and finished with a third set, lower reps.  It's a cool workout because it's simple and you can modify order of exercises, reps in a set, time goal or no, etc.  

The second phase of my workout today was a 6 mile run and it took about 50 minutes to run comfortably.  I jogged/ran an easy pace, on a great day, after my strength work.  I wanted to get in a good long combined workout today as I am giving blood later and will take tomorrow off completely.

I thought about pushing through tomorrow and running anyway, but I don't want to do anything stupid at my age!  All I need is to pass out, fall, break something and never be right again.  Better to be safe than sorry.
