I figured it might by nice for those of us reaching for a specific goal, whatever that goal may be, to have a thread where we can share our progress. Maybe it will keep some of us focused more. Whatever your goal, weight loss or gain, building muscle or getting leaner, share it here! Here's my progress so far: Just recently started running outdoors again (couldn't during the winter do to a tube dysfunction in my ear) and I'm happy to say that my pace isn't that bad after not running for a couple months. I was able to keep around the 5:50 mark for three miles, so I'm pretty excited, as I thought I'd have dropped much further. Although I will admit, my cardio has gone down, and breathing was a bit more painful than usual do to my lungs not being used to the stress. of actually running, despite all of the circuit training I did through the winter. I'm a little over 140 right now, according to my doctor trip two weeks ago (thought I was less), and while that's fine by me, I know I'll end up losing some weight from running. Ultimately, my goal is to get back into competitive shape and do some races this summer.
