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 5 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 comfortable with the swim portion. (edit: got the swim, need bike endurance)

Current Status:
BOILHAM it's raining today, so my scheduled bike ride will wait until tomorrow. Roads are slick, cars can't see me. Cycling in the rain isn't as easy as running. If it's raining on a run day, I still do it.

I do ST at least 2 times a week. Cycling and swimming more lately, training for triathlons.

Personal Information:
Married to my childhood sweetheart.
Retired, living in Maitland, FL
US Navy Vietnam Era Vet.
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.

The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses, it is won behind the scenes, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights. - Muhammad Ali

Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best. - Henry Van Dyke

Thanks for visiting my blog, especially in my absence this summer. The mountains are definitely different than rolling hills. In the Midwest, we do not even get rolling hills. So I will take what I get!

Thank you. Your advice is well taken. The closest thing to exercise that I will be doing that week is self-massage. My greatest worry is about toe blisters.
