All I care about is getting 100% healthy. Last January or so I figured out my previous injury was likely an issue with my psoas and I still haven’t recovered completely. Day to day I’m fine but I haven’t been able to squat or deadlift in close to two years now. I have one more routine I’m going to go through before going back to the sports med doctor. Never going to make the mistake of neglecting mobility and stretching ever again.

I had never ran a half-marathon before until last year and ended up doing three of them before it was all said and done.

That said, I didn't do a good enough job training, didn't do a good enough job with my body and my weight management to get to the point that I wanted to be. I guess I can say I'm in better shape than I was at this point last year, but now my goal is to see the gains at a transformational level.

Need to lose twenty pounds and once I meet the goal, keep it off. Improve my mobility to get more agile and also help with improved recovery after training. Have 4 half-marathons planned and a dozen races total.

If I can do that, I'll be in a good place.

I was in size 44 pants and even those had to go under my gut. I'm in size 34 now and they're actually up on my waist. Had to get them 2 inches longer because I can wear them at my waist now.

^nice

I'm working out for the first time since college, so like 12 years. Managed to get 3 in this year so far.

Christmas weight I was like 229, but I'm back to a pretty normal 223 today. Goal is under 200

I have a long commute so getting in exercise is tough these days but I want to get in exercise at least 3 times a week or 12 times total a month. That means a brief dumbbell workout on weekdays and longer workouts on the weekends.

200 lbs even today. In the final stretch now.

Getting faster and more confident on the mountain bike. Signed up for the sprint triathlon. Got swim lessons scheduled. Doing 5k under 27 minutes on the treadmill. Need to run outside to see where I'm really at.

Awesome. I thought about doing a sprint tri for a bit, but don't have 10% of your drive

^^you probably know this but it’s worth saying - try to mix in some hills when you run outside. When I was training for my first, I lived downtown and didn’t realize how flat my route was compared to the race course and it kicked my ass.

wow, that's a really impressive time - especially for your first. you'll probably be even faster on race day with the adrenaline and stuff. good job, and good luck on your race.

I waited too long to sign up for the Holden Beach 5k this weekend and it's all sold out, so my first race of the season will probably be the Sunset Beach 5k at the end of March, assuming my tibias hold up (coming off stress fractures in both).

Ha! No it's in Elizabethtown. It was pretty great. Has lots of elevation considering it's in eastern NC. The climbs kicked my ass. Has some high speed sections that had me grabbing the brakes, too.
