    Not a bad motivation,) before quarantine, I also did weightlifting, but since November I stopped doing exercises, I will have to resume training. I had a good program, https://torokhtiy.com/products/male-weightlifting-2-0 I took a lot of exercises from here that suited me and gained optimal shape. Maybe it will help someone too.

    I've been trying my hardest at intermittent fasting for a little over a month now and it helped me drop about 9 pounds.

    Today I started a couch-to-5k routine so I can start getting active again.

    My best friend gets married in October so I've got until then to try and lose 25-35 more pounds.

    Hired a coach (a first since the 90s when I was racing mountain bikes), and this coming Sunday I'm starting a 20-week program that will lead me to my first official marathon in 20 years in October. Aiming to qualify for the Boston Marathon; I need to do 3:18:00 or better for my group age (45-49). I did 3:31:42 last December solo, and judging by the 30K I did a few weeks ago (ran at about 4:50/K), I should already be well under 3h30.

    In the past few weeks, I got new modern (post-2001) PBs on 1K (3:10 - down from 3:22), 5K (19:20 - down from 19:51) and half-marathon (1:31:54 - down from 1:34:43). Should be my year!

    Been lifting at home usually using Youtuber Anabolic aliens as a guide. Man, those 5 to 10 min upper body workouts are pretty intense since you got to squeeze so many reps within 5 mins. Mainly hiking with a meetup.com crew and working at the beach using the beach gym area at Ala Moana beach park. Also jogged 3.3 miles around my beach today with some leg raises at the beach gym thrown in.
