The following equipment is nearing replacement:

10 years ago today (technically Saturday since the day after the Super Bowl 2006 was on Feb 6th)  I started this journey.  My weight at the time was about 285 - 290 pounds!  My plan was to start Nutri System when the Steelers fell out of the playoffs.  That year they made an unexpected run to the Super Bowl as a wild card team (they beat the Seahawks btw!) .

By the early fall of that year the weight was down a fair amount, I had ran my first 5K and it was then that I joined BT.  Since then through tri training, run training and occasionally some strength training I have managed to keep the weight off.  Sometimes it creeps up over 200 but usually that is the off season and when training resumes I can get it back into the 180's.  Right now I am in the mid 180's and this year the goal is to go lower than usual and try to race IM Choo in the low 170's or even upper 160's.  At 5'7 or so (depending on which convenient store I'm leaving) that is not an unhealthy weight goal, just one I have never really tried to get to since it would require a lot more disciplined eating and drinking of adult beverages.  We'll see how it goes, I took off 20 pounds since the late fall, but have been stuck for a few weeks. 

Just a trip down memory lane to start off a Monday.

Legs are a bit sore from yesterday.  I was going to swim again this morning but with the pool being outside and the air temps in the low 40's I stayed inside.  I may try later if I can get out of work in time.

Good paces till the first trip over the bridge.  Then I lost about 30 seconds per mile that I couldn't seem to force back.  The wind was pretty stiff into our face on the way back plus the rain.  But I don't think that was entirely the problem. 

Overall 15 minutes better than the half in September so the work is paying off.
