Hi - my name is Mark - Nick name - Dukes - I am from the Great Land down under - Australia ! ** I am starting on a campaign to lose 22 lb's and get fit again - back to something like I was in this photo & then some - Also I am hoping to come to America in 2011 - 2012 for a riding trek & holiday. The photo is March 2008 - getting ready to take the plunge in a local Triathlon that I organised for the Local Football Club. I accidentally found spark people and I have been inspired by the people I have read about and their amazing achievements and positive LIVE LIFE attitiude - Spark people has got me fired up & ready to get going again.
I have been inactive on spark for 6 months and gotten lazy & weight has blown out to 81 kg and fitness gone to hell - but I am ready to start to climb the mountain and get myself fit again - just need to maintain focus on my goals - starting off slow and then gradually building my work load.

My Goals:
My Goal is to lose 22 lbs and get fit. I would also like to do some weights to build muscle - I hope to get some advice in how to achieve that. I am planning to get back onto the bike in September 2011 when weather warms up a bit. Also I am going to have a crack at umpiring as well -hope to do some short course Triathlons as well this season

My Program:
Plan to start at 20 k's a day on the bike with some walking and cardio exercises - I also need to start some jogging in with the walking and build up to a 3km run instead of a walk

Personal Information:
I am 49 years old - happily married with 2 children 1 boy 20 yrs & 1 girl 15 yrs. We live in South western Vicoria in Blue ribbon dairy country - plenty of rainfall in the winter - warm weather is finally starting to arrive - hooray !

Other Information:
I am planning a ride accross New Mexico 2011 /2012 - from the bottom to the top - If there are any spark people out there that might be up for the challenge - drop me sparkmail to the great downunder - will add some more photo's to my page soon !
