Now that my wife and I are empty nestor's and I have been running regularly again for a few years I have decided to get back to my old training and diet. Since the end of February (22nd actually), I have been watching my diet by trying to stay under 2500 calories a day and I went from running 3 days a week to four. I weighed 202 pounds on 2/22/12 and today I weigh 182, so I have been able to lose 20 pounds. Now I weighed about 165 back in 1975 when I ran the Bethlehem City Festival at a 5:47/mile pace, I don't think I can get back to that level but I can already feel an improvement. I will try to write on a more regular schedule here and in my next installment I will describe the details of my program.
