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.

I basically think mainting weight loss is harder than losing it in the firs place... & that's scary! emoticon

Hi Vic,

Thanks for your comment on my “Lost Blog: Great Outdoors –Moderately Fit”. We didn’t drink during the ride. We had a few beers long after we got to camp. A few beers made the group encounters led by the HR guy a lot more tolerable. There were all sorts of spill-your-guts topics. I think the HR guy had a list: “What is your greatest accomplishment?”; “What would you change about yourself?”; “What is you biggest regret?”

You get the idea.

I don’t drink that much. However, mountain biking and beer are inseparable.

You summed it up nicely. Yup, it was hard. The scenery was great. We drank good beer. Please tell your dear wife that after a hard and hot workout, you may have earned a beer or two!

Heavy consumption of alcohol is not good. But you know that. Sometimes I want a beer. A lot of times I don’t. Particularly if I have put on a few pounds, I abstain from drinking calories, which not only includes beer but juice, milk and soft drinks.

Thanks, Bruce
