Long time no post --

Still in the mid-upper 180's. My last two PFTs and CFTs (military fitness tests) have been my highest ever. I suffered a mild, mild calf strain in late June and was back to...

I think so. Most trainers include a block of some kind in the box. I used one with mine (all three times that I rode it, anyway, before I sold the trainer off via Craigslist).

A road bike will indeed help you ride longer. Make sure it fits well, and you'll find yourself riding out past Vienna just for kicks. Pretty decent number of routes around here, and plenty of other...

It's been a while, hasn't it? I don't remember what I weighed when I first posted in the thread.



I'm barely under 6.2", too. I started at just over 230 (the highest I remember seeing was...

Now that I'm married, I'm willing to go with the fanny pack, too. It must have the perfect dorkiness-to-practicality ratio out there. It carries the wallet, keys, phone, and even a balled-up...

You watched the same movie I did, right?

The title itself, "Into Darkness", was not about Khan or the simple shoot-em-up stuff (which was done in the first Khan movie, anyway, under Roddenberry). ...

A calorie deficit of 500/day is enough. At 200 lbs, for a 500/day deficit, I was eating 2300-2500 per day on heavy exercise days. That ain't exactly starving, ya know.

You don't say? ;)



Did you do the measurements yourself or did someone measure you? You're a little leggy, but not wildly so. Maybe start with a 58 like you said.

I'm between 6'1" - 6'2". I weighed in at 179.4 after two hours of jogging Sunday morning. I haven't seen that figure since third phase of boot camp a dozen years ago. After I got some food and...

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing... :D

My wife said that I could get one at $1200-1300 right away. Didn't even think that they'd ever be that cheap anywhere.

Living too close to work to make riding worthwhile. Walking turns out to be nicer, especially because I don't have to deal with traffic at all.
