Current fitness status Week 13

Weighed in on Monday at a lean 169lbs. This is the least I’ve weighed since probably around 1999 to early 2000. From here the years effectively keep rolling back until my goal weight which I can now reveal is 155lbs. It may seem smallish, but for those who don’t know me I’m only 5′ 9″ tall which lends itself to a pretty nice weight and frame. Strength is through the roof as well, or at least better than it’s been for the past 14 years. Very close on most weights to beating my peak fitness levels from around 1995-1996. Running is coming along great with my current pace at around 8:53 and incline work going well. Current goal is still to finish the Lakefront Marathon at a pace under 9:00 which means finishing under 3:45. This would be a pretty substantial accomplishment I feel for someone who was around 50 pounds overweight just five months ago.

I’ve decided pictures will be coming, but not for a few more weeks yet. I want to be within mere pounds of my target weight before posting all of the pics (I think around three or four different weeks so far).
