Moving toward a “leg day”

I admit, trying to build my legs has been difficult. Today I tried: somewhat hilly (but slow) 5 mile run, followed by:
pull ups (good, 5 sets of 10), rotator cuff
1 set of light goblet squats
hex dead lifts: 6 x 175, 6 x 205 (trying to keep my legs from straightening out too soon); this burned.
military: 10 x 50, 10 x 45, 10 x 40 (dumbbell, standing)
rows: 3 sets of 10 x 110 machine
plank (2:30)

That’s was enough to get sweaty, and harder than I thought should be. Friday: I’ll try the weights first then any run or walk.

I don’t have anything resembling a leg day, but I am hoping to become somewhat competent in “barbell squats”; right now, I am a total disaster (lean forward when I try to get any depth at all).

But, with THESE knees, I should be grateful I can even walk..
