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 4 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. (edit: done, 4/12/2015)

Long time fitness buff, about 35 years of continuous ST. I call myself "A short ectomorph" as an excuse for not having gained muscle mass over the years. :) Lousy body building genetics, (native american genes) but fair amount of desire to be the best I can be.

That's awesome. My DS is an Army vet. He still lives in Alaska where he was stationed. It is always so good to see him!

Thank you for the advice! This was only my second half marathon so I do consider myself a rookie. I figured I burned my legs out on the first half. But all my training runs have been around this pace so I thought I was good to go.

Next time I will remember to slow down at the beginning. Thanks again for the tip!

Mixing it up does save the legs. I don't run more than four days a week (usually 3) for that reason which may make HM training tougher, but I refuse to stress my knees that much.

The humidity has been killer, eh? I only ran outside once before my recent 5K and whew! Need to train that more.
