It's now been 5 months since I've been putting CCIE level effort into improving my health. No washboard abs yet, but I'm pleased to say I have made a lot of progress. I've lost over 20 pounds, 7% body fat, 6 inches off my waist, and now have a medal to hang next to my CCIE plaques: 2011 Myrtle Beach Marathon finisher (4 hours 55 minutes).
Here's pretty much what my schedule has turned into:
Monday: 1 hour weights at the gym
Tuesday: 4 mile easy run
Wednesday: 3 mile fast run to the gym, 1 hour weights, 3 mile easy run home
Thursday: 4 mile easy run
Friday: 1 hour weights at the gym, 20 minute sprint intervals
Sunday: long slow distance run (12 - 20 miles)
I'm still sticking with my original quest for now. In running the numbers, it looks like if I keep on track I should be in the ballpark around June.
