Hi Everyone (Read 929 times)

    I have been lurking here for a while and figured that is rude so I should introduce myself. My name is Tony. I live in San Diego and am a45yr male. I started on 11/20/05 at 300 lbs and now I am 174lbs. I have been steadily losing fat the whole while with a combination of diet and weightlifting and running. My first love is weight lifting but recently the running has been pulling me in. I alternate days, one day weight, the next running. I have never been an athlete or anything but I am now enjoying the physical lifestlye and looking to take it to a higher level. Up until a month or so ago I would run 3 times a week for 3.5 miles each time, just nice and slow. Then I started reading about the 10K and Half Marathon and Marathon and got to thinking, hey, I can do these. I knocked out the 10K no problem and decided to really concentrate on ther Half, then continue on to the Marathon. I am follow Hal Higdons novice half program and cruising right along. I just comleted week 8 of 12 last week which is an 8 mile run. I felt great and it really gave me confidence to press for more mileage. On the way home from the run I was bringing the big rolling trash can in and ran over my little toe and think I broke it becasue now it hurts like crazy. Of all things. So this took me out of the training cycle a bit so I can let it heal. So thats where I am at right now. I should be back out there in a couple of weeks. I look forward to joining the fun here. You all seem motivated, fun, and very informed.

      Hi Tony, Welcome! I am glad you decided to join us. 126 lbs lost! Shocked That is great. You must feel like a new man. Good luck with your HM training (I hope your toe heals quickly).
        HI Tony. You lost entire person! You lost about what I want to weigh when I reach my goal weight. This is very, very impressive. Now be careful with the trash cans next time Smile and heal quickly so you can resume your training. Ewa

          Ditto! Hope your toe is better quickly. Toes heal pretty fast, I think. k
