Today marks the one year anniversary of when I stepped my fat ass on the scale at the gym and decided that 260 lbs at 33 years old just wasn’t going to cut it. Instead of lifting weights periodically and thinking of myself as a “big guy” (when really I was a fat ass) I decided to make real changes.
I lost 45ish lbs (I don’t weigh myself very often) probably put a few back on since tri season ended, but today I’m rededicating myself to the goals of health, wellness, and speedy triathlons. I have about 10 months until C-Man and I have a lot of work to do.
As I work my way through this winter, I’m going to heed the advice of several Tri coaches that I’ve talked to who told me to focus on my speed this winter not my endurance. So it is going to be lots of tempo and threshold work .
