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 6 marathons.

I completed my first Sprint Triathlon at age 66. My goal now is to complete an Olympic Triathlon, (done: 8/17/14) then a 70.3 if I can get my bike speed/endurance up.

'Still' at it I see...

've been gone almost a couple of months now (my excuse being a new temporary job) "I know" "I know" but the good thing is that today is the first day of the rest of my life. Out-the-Door!

Thanx for being my friend emoticon Jane

Thanks for commenting on my BLOG. I took it easier on the elliptical today because of the way my heart rate went so high. I was able to do 20 minutes but as I saw my rate go past my maximum heart rate, I started to relax my breathing. The heart rate started to come down. I am going to see my doctor about this when I get home next week and see what he says about my heart rate going so high.

If there had not been a monitor on the machine, I would never have known it went so high as I did not experience any chest pain or dizziness.
Weird!

Wow, just reading your story about your running and marathons.
I have just begun to train to be able to run 5K (I just turned 62) I have been a power walker for a few years now and love that.

I am just impressed at your dedication and achievement that it inspires me to keep on trying. I have always wanted to be able to run and it seems that nothing can stop one who is determined (not even age).

Thank you for inspiring me............
