20 miles to go
According to DailyMile I have logged 280 miles this year. Not nearly the 450-500 i wanted. With 38 days left in 2016, I'd have to run 5 miles each day to approach that number. I may try to bring that 280 up to an even 300 but I am also trying to rest my knees and joints. Face it, I'm old and I have arthritic knees and if I want to be able to run with Moose and Squirrel, I need to save all my runs.
I will move on to more swimming as it is easier for me to get swim in versus a run during my lunchtime workout. My weight has definitely crept up although it's not at it's historical high. I think I once was at 220 back in 2003 or 2004. I doubt I'll ever get back to my fighting weight of 190 but if I can stay under 210 through the holidays perhaps I can then get closer to 200 by the time Spring arrives. My theory is that humans are designed to store, not lose fat over the winter.
