I'm doing the 5's

Being a former Marine can do strange things to you, I attribute my new exercise regimen to the Marine Corps, I call it, "Doing the 5's".

I get off work at 5:30, walk home and go to the gym before 6, run 5K on the treadmill, then grab 5 pound weights in each hand and do a cool down walk at 5% grade, thus, doing the 5's!

I'm surprised I can still run 3 miles (Give or take 5K) but hardly at my old Marine Corps run times. I look back and can't hardly believe I was once able to run 3 miles at an average time of 21 minutes.
