About to go to war on 2 fronts

I am hereby declaring war on 2 fronts.

The first is a physical war against the sedentary lifestyle I have developed since my child was born.  It’s not uncommon for me to get a fire lit under my ass in the first several months of the year—the MS150 is in April, after all.  The challenge will be to actually end the year at a weight that is no more than 5% higher than my MS150 ride weight.  Historically I’ve hit the road for the MS150 at a curb weight of about 195lbs wet (after eating), so that 5% will have me topped out somewhere near 205lbs in December.  Of course, if I’m serious about running the ’08 marathon and pulling off the Texas Double Triple I should be comfortably lower than that.  Objectives for this particular war will be a curb weight of 190lbs by April 22.  The last weigh in was 214.5—the same weight I was at in June—so I’m looking at a 20lb drop in 4 months.  Not all that hard. 

 

Please note, this is NOT a new year’s resolution.  I prefer to stick with my annual non-resolution resolution to celebrate New Year’s 2008.

 

The second war is a simmering cold war that is about to get very, very hot.  I’m currently putting together the infrastructure to attempt to wage this war and further details will come out when I simply can’t hold it in any longer.

 

Due to sporadic posting problems, the sportjunkie blog will likely be going dark for some time.
