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)

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.

Here is an OFFICIAL emoticon on a great tri finish!! You really do inspire me! Keep it up!

Thanks for posting on my Biggest Loser race report. Each race does present its own challenges. It is what we take away from the experience that counts.

I just logged my 6th HM in Chicago, and already signed up for another in September, but want to do a HM before then.

It is a racing bug that bit us hard, eh?
