I always found caffeine key for the two-mile.

5.9, stop trying so hard. Harder isn't faster. Be more efficient, like in climbing...

I got my pre-Thanksgiving weight down from 187 to 159.
Pretty much what I'm in the middle of. Any particulars? Done it before a couple of time, but always curious about other folks' approaches.

I used to run the mirror lake loop.
There was a sign indicating a mile, and I thought I'd gotten close to a 4 minute mile at times.
Nobody gives a rip about 4 minute miles anymore.
Neither should they.

Ran a 10 mile race in Brooklyn yesterday in 1:43. Not great, but at 67yo, I'll take it.

Saturday - 50 moto singletrack of steep rocky miles on Butte monzonite with sandy stuff connectors. The bouldering along the trails is amazing - worked!
35 miles roady dirt ride to snow/mud - tired!

After work rides and runs with the new time change should help with dropping the lbs.!

I am having better luck losing weight this year because I cut out all forms of sugar, and decided to go farther this year by absolutely minimizing other carbohydrates, which pretty much left me with protein to live on. I think cutting way back on carbs was the missing part and accepting the fact that I can live on protein, with some dry lettuce.

Caffeine actually interferes with natural heart rhythm. For me it is not wise due to the risk of causing atrial fibrillation.

After six years of intermittent atrial fibrillation, that became constant in April of 2014, I had ablation surgery in November of 2014. It seems to be 99% successful. I began feeling great the next day.

Then knee surgery in December to repair a minor meniscus tear from doing pause (at the bottom) squats that were too low with too much weight. I had tried to ignore the problem for six months. Eight weeks of pain followed that surgery. Rehab was challenging. I did not have professional help. I just pushed through the pain and then backed off a day or two, then pushed again and backed off a day or two, over and over.

I write this only to offer an example of how will power allowed me to feel about thirty years younger. Thank you all for your responses.

Hopefully I will work back up to pass my 2014 record of lifting 106,000 pounds (53 tons) in the gym in four hours. If you happen to lift weights with very good form, you know this is doable. But you have to work up to it over maybe a year. My recent effort was 40,000 pounds in February of this year as I regain my squat ability.

But my real goal is to improve my crack climbing this summer. I love motorcycling, swimming, tennis, running, the gym and golf. But my favorite sport is still climbing.

I have been trail running and mtn biking, up to eight and 24 miles respectively, details and photos to come...
But what I really want to talk about is my inversion training, not really aerobic, but as it's still endurance it's related!

I have some upside down climbing objectives this year, one of the necessary goals is to be able to hang upside down for long periods of time. I use inversion cuffs with three layers of wool socks for padding. I've worked up to over and hour! I do three sets of inverted sit-ups every ten minutes. Also pull my upper body up on rock rings in various work out strategies.

I have to sit around quietly for a while after that, I swear I can feel my organs shifting back intro place....

Don't judge me for the title, but iwantsixpackabs is the best all around workout I've ever done! Try it! It's 16 weeks and a few yours ago when I got to week 11 I was in even better shape than water polo or any other time.

It's supersets with light weight so your heart rate stays elevated for 20-40 minutes depending on the week (changes weekly).

The only downside is when people ask you what workout you're doing

Nice GymBro Jaybro!

I got my first trail run(7miles 3+Kvert) of the year after the last 2 months of pt, biking and motoing. Sore in the muscle and the 47yo knees are feeling great!!! The gym and commuting by fixt wheel is why I can run and I am grateful for it when I am busy or just want to be in better shape. My only caveat is that I have to run up or down hills, even 1/4 mile continuous time/dist on flat kills my knees

I think that ridge, and back to the trailhead on the road should be a sub 10 mile loop....

Susan, a couple of my toes Are sore....

Go Atch!!

Thx for that Limping crab! I'll check it out, I'm looking to train the core in endurance mode for some steep climbing projects!!

Good luck with the knees, Cragar!

Ran 30 miles last week and a snowshoe ascent of something in the Catskills on 30 inches unconsolidated. A good week.

The snow here in the East this year, has been unusual. Gotta git sum even if the running takes a hit.

Thanks for sharing, Jaybro. Did you work up to an hour gradually to see if your brains didn't pour out?
