Old Dog - Still Learning New Tricks

Long time fitness buff. While never being truly overweight, I have a hard time keeping my body fat percentage under control. I continue to strength train a few times a week. I've added swimming and bike riding into my fitness plan recently. Trying to do twice a week on each.

I started running at age 64, now 3 years later I've logged a few miles, including 4 marathons.

I completed my first Sprint Triathlon at age 66. My goal now is to complete an Olympic Triathlon, then a 70.3 if I can get comfortable with the swim portion.

Hello Sir,
How are you feeling? Hope you are well. I haven't checked in with you for a while and I read your blog about your fainting spell. Glad to hear it was nothing serious. No surprise that the doctor said you were in good health. Maybe your biker shorts were too tight!

I'm sure your anxious to get back to training. But I'm sure your keeping busy. Hoping your back to showing me up real soon. It's hard to keep a good man down!
