    Old man me misses real running and kinda hates you right now. o_O

    Going to run a couple miles on indoor track this afternoon and try not to look at mins/mile and maybe concentrate more on not doing 100% of my age groups average max heart rate. I know that's the smart thing to do but damn, it's hard to not look at a slow slough and not compare it to what I ran 30 years ago. :(

    Don't worry...I've had a reoccurring calf strain and tendinitis going on 3-4 months now so running like that has not happened.

    And I like running in the winter so it's been pretty frustrating.

    Haha, in all seriousness, you look good. I was just joking. I got probably 20 lbs to get to that point. I’m not sure switching to popsicles with no added sugar and more White Claws is going to get me there.

    Thought I should post so you know the old man DND from run. Went okay with knees again but heart rate was too high for my liking even though I slowed down almost 30 sec/mile. Going to blame the time release cold pill with pseudoephedrine in it, they be like legal speed. No cold pill today and even after a couple cups of java resting rate is only 62 bpm, seems to maybe support the cold pill theory.

    Mine has been like 65 this week so I know I'm sick. Never stayed that high even 9 months pregnant. In labor Drs asked if I were a runner because even all medded up and in mucho pain, my HR was 50 with low BP. They were hesitant on doing Fentanyl on top of the non-working epi and said let us know right away if you're drowsy. I was like why, is napping bad? They go no, but stopping breathing is. Oh. :eek:

    When I was getting slightly longer stretches of sleep earlier this year, some of my overnight Fitbit measurements dropped into the 30's. Pretty much dead.

    My theory (when I've had success) is that if I go over on carbs when counting macros because I ate too many bananas, IDGAF. Fruits are also my least favorite of the three healthy groups (meat, veggies, fruit) so it seldom happens.

    I'm fasting and I'm working out at noon. It's a fat killer and that's by far my most productive time of day. I have the most energy and the most stamina working out then. I'm a dog in the mornings and just can't get the same output and after work just leaves a lot of opportunity to get squeezed out.

    Haha, this is my exact strategy. Baby carrots, sugar-free popsicles, and low(er) sodium sunflower seeds. Still not super healthy, but better than some other options. I also reserve a few hundred calories worth of sustenance for 4th meal.

    I just saw this. I hope you are progressing well! I suppose I could read on to find out. :)

    Also, if you guys want an interesting listen, go listen to the Rogan pod with Chris Kresser and James Wilks. Interesting dialogue on a bunch of stuff though I don't know that I learned a whole lot because they are both citing a bunch of stuff that compares their preferred diet to the SAD and of course they both work. I tend to side with Kresser here as Wilks doesn't really give anything viable to back up his "meat is bad" claim.

    Seems like less bpm means more lifetime beats available! Thinking you are probably going to live to be 120 or so. ;)

    I think the lowest I have seen on my fitbit was 61 and that was way lower than normal. I guess it will be a while before mine gets lower. I figure with all the walking I do it has to pay off at some point.

    I guess I should add I weighed myself this morning and I am now down 24 lbs since Aug 22. Need to lose 4 lbs in the next 11 days to get to keep my 7lb a month average.
    :eek:
