    I sped the video up, that actually took me about 3 minutes. There is a time limit on Instagram.

    Competed in my first off-road triathlon last weekend in Show Low at 6500 ft elevation :shock:

    I MTB ride occasionally for a change of pace from road cycling. It's fun, but competing in a MTB race is insanely fun!

    Having racers chasing you down out in the forest and trying to catch riders to chase was crazy fun.

    I don't have the skills of most MTB racers, so it was basically controlled-chaos racing down the hills. Going as fast as possible while trying not to crash.

    Next race is scheduled for July 9. Mountain Man Triathlon in Lake Mary.

    Olympic distance. 1500m swim 25 mile bike and 10k run.

    7000 ft elevation, yikes.

    I'm a little concerned with the swim because of the elevation. Swimming is my weakest leg and at this elevation the effects are exponential. I need all the air I can get!

    Summer football training for my son. The kid is getting strong.

    Summer for me is cardio with light lifting.

    Finished up week 20 of my ironman program today. Longest week to date, 16 hours.

    swim: 2h 26m
    bike: 8h 44m (including a 67 mile cruise around the White Tank Mountains)
    run: 4h 42m (props to my daughter for keeping me company riding her bike on a 13.3 mile run in the rain this morning)

    Came up 8 minutes short of 16 hours, but I'm rounding up.

    2 more weeks of base training, then a 12 week competitive program and a 2 week taper (easing up and preparing to race).

    I'm down 58 pounds in the past 14 weeks. My wife and I are doing Optavia lifestyle change program (Optavia is Medifast's re-branded network marketing program) through her friend (a "health coach" through the program). I'm probably going to stay on the 5&1 weight loss program through some point in December, then transition and spend a little bit of time in the 3&3 maintenance program before transitioning off completely.

    I've started getting back into my DDPYoga DVDs, but struggling to get into a routine with those. I know stepping up the exercise will be key for the long-term sustainability though - so looking forward to keeping track of good things people are doing here!

    I'm on a calorie restricted diet that consists of 5 portion-controlled meal replacements (all very low in fat/carbs) that are around 100 calories each and then one lean-and-green meal that is 5-7 ounces of protein (plus some healthy fats like olive oil/avocado depending on the leanness of protein) and 1.5-3 cups of vegetable (depending on type of veggie). Plus up to 3 servings of condiments (very small amounts of salad dressing, etc). Last night we had honey chipotle salmon w/ zoodles (spiralized zucchini) with low-fat/low-sugar marinara + a little bit of shredded mozzarella on top for dinner. So, the weight comes off very easily based on such a calorie-deficient diet, but I know the key will be the transition and long-term sustainability.

    Keeping it off is always hard no matter how you get there. But man you're getting there that's the hardest part. Life is life. I have mad respect for people that give it their all and try. I tell my son all the time the only loser is the one not trying.

    Just finished up a swim to make it 28 straight days of training. Taking a day off tomorrow and then competing in another Olympic distance triathlon in Flagstaff Sunday.

    Did the same race 5 weeks ago. Not sure if I will race any faster because I did not taper for this race at all. Treating it more like a really hard workout.
