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.

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.

Yes, Shamrock is known for a lot of rewards. The Dolphin Challenge is an extra medal for doing the 8K and the HM. I’m thinking about doing that next year. I walked over 5 miles on Saturday anyway, so why not do it all on the course. The Whale Challenge is the 8K plus the full Marathon. The King Neptune Challenge is for those who run the Half and follow it up with the Full. Yikes!

The reason some cant maintain is they quit when they attain their goal. I did that a few times. But if Iwatch very closely and keep tracking food and exercise I can stay within a maintain range of a couple of pounds. We all flucuate a little up and down during the week but then it levels out if we keep a sharp eye on it. I dont know how others do it but thats how I am doing it.
