    On the look thing, I'll second the comments on diet management; its kinda weird at 5'8" I have a bit of that "ripped model dangerous" look at 180lbs. I'm bigger and stronger at 195lb, but the small...

    Funny how this works....
    10 miles on bike * 50kcal /mile = 500kcal per ride * 7 rides/wk = 3500 kcal = content of energy in one pound of fat.

    Odd change in max HR

    Not talking about the low resting HR improving by exercise.

    Throttle Up. Punch Through.
    Seize the day without regret.

    So... no. None.
    I chose as I chose, and am where I am.
    Past is gone, only today and tomorrow are relevant.
