    Start Date was 5/07/2008
    Start weight: 244
    Height 5'8
    Goal weight: 180-200 still not sure about this.
    Long term goal: Triathalon - Ironman. I want to swim 2.4 miles bike 112 run 26.6 and brag for the rest of my life.
    Cardio: Daily
    Weight Training - I start this saturday, I hired a personal trainer and had a fitness assement done.
    Max run time w/o stoping:30-45 seconds.
    Start Mile time: 18 minutes

    Today.
    Weight:216
    Longest run: 25 Minutes
    Average Mile:12:54
    Best Mile: 10:30

    What Ive done.
    Ive done some very basic light weight training, stuff I knew how to do. Basically when I walk into the weight room I get overwhelmed because there are so many exercises. I do spinning classes twice a week, and run the rest. I do have light cardio days where I just do a slow jog or walk with no HIIT training. My hard cardio days, I try to beat my best mile then cool off. I jog until the 40 minute mark and then do some HIIT variation for the last 20 minutes. Its worked so far, I feel like I have increased my VO2 Max alot.

    Ive wanted to post for a while, I feel great.

    I don’t have any rest days really just days where I take it easier, I always do some sort of cardio. This is what my schedule might look like
    Monday - Light run/jog/walk
    Tuesday - Hard run- Minimum 5 HIIT reps or 20 minutes
    Wednesday - Spinning which I consider hard
    Thursday- Swim in the pool 30 minutes -1hr
    Friday- Hard Run
    Saturday - Spinning
    Sunday - Yard work/Basketball- The grass here grows so damn fast in the summer.

    My knees hurt at first but in the beginning I did a lot more spinning then running because it was much lower impact. Once I dropped some weight I started taking the running seriously. I also went to a running store and had a gait test done, I bought shoes that are perfect this helped alot. I havent been sedentary my whole life but I went through a depression stage when my grandpa died and I ate my way out of it.

    Before I started I went on a cruise and I have pictures from that trip and also a prior trip where you can see how fat I was. I need to take a progress pick now. I’ve considered maybe blogging about what im doing so that I can look back on it.

    I will post the pics tonight when I get home I just needed to get the nerve to make this thread.

    This is cool to read. I started in June myself. I started at 269lbs and when I weighed myself on July 1 @ 260lbs. I'm not weighing myself again until August 1st but its amazing how when I started I could barely go 20 minutes of cardio and now I'm doing 60 minutes daily. Gonna follow your progress cause its cool to see someone on the same level as me doing the same thing. Keep it up, great work.
