Are You Taking That With You?

You Taking That With You?

I finished my workout and was enjoying the warmth of the sauna at the Y when a new Y member came in.  Seemed like a nice guy, and we introduced ourselves and started getting acquainted.  I happened to mention to him that I was headed for Mobile, Alabama to run the race that weekend. 
Since we were both sitting there with just our towels, he looked over, gestured toward my stomach and said, "You taking that with you?" 
Apparently he read me well enough to know that I wasn't the kind of person who would sock someone who I had just met.  Actually, I thought it was kinda funny.  Also, a nice wake-up call.
Yeah, the holidays are over and it's time to get those extra couple of holiday pounds back under control.  So, here I am, back on the program, running, cross training.  I've even been in the pool a few times this year so far. 
And the marathon in Mobile, incidentally, felt pretty good.  Still not as fast as I used to be, but getting better and making things happen.  Only 91 more marathons before I can retire.  Or at least reevaluate.

Don't expect to lose much if any weight training for an Ironman. You may firm up but its not that likely you will lose any weight.
