Racing

Well, on the side, I like to photoshot racing events (biking, running, etc).  How ironic that I start thinking about getting involved in a few competitive races, that Men’s Health magazine throws out a bunch of articles on doing just that.
 
Here’s a snippet:
 
"Watching a distance race can be irritating and inspiring! Fit guys and hot women, all moving too fast and looking a bit too self-satisfied. And yeah, you’d like to be out there with them. That’s the inspiring part.
 
But maybe you’ve got a gut. Or you’re out of shape, or you’ve never run that far in your life. Listen: Those aren’t reasons you can’t run a race. Those are reasons you should."

  1. Great job on your progress so far.  As for the calories…  you\’re best bet is to talk to a nutritionist.  Personally, I think 1200 is a little low…  especially if you are strength training.  Once again, talk to a nutritionist that can give you an idea of what is right for you.
     
    As for the strength training, my workout partner (my wife) and I usually spend about an hour or so in the gym.  When I train alonw (as I do when I travel), I average about 45 minutes or so.
     
    4 pounds a week is an agressive, but healthy goal.   Don\’t get discouraged if some of your weeks, you don\’t lose that much.  Just keep up the good work.
