Was I designed to weigh 220?
I train at about 140 miles weekly, always run hard, and keep up with most, including youngins (except hills!). Last summer I got down to under 200, briefly, and felt SO fast. Alas, I'm back up in weight now and, short of starvation or 3 centuries a week, it's really hard to loose! When, at the gym, I pick up a 50 pound dumbell, I think, "this is the extra weight I carry around, no wonder I lumber up the steeps". All that being said, I'm in great shape, bp is 116/66, blood panel is fine. (also, I'm 64 yrs old)
Does anyone else have these thoughts or should I just enjoy who I am? (the "kids" all say how strong I am for my age but it seems I should perform at a higher level).
Please don't flame this, I'm just trying to ask an honest question...
