performance: gaining 2.0 lb a week

48 year old white male, works as a training specialist for the Department of Defense. Most of my work is sedentary, save for a once-weekly (students) and once bimonthly (staff) study skills seminar, where I'm up on my feet and teaching for 60-to-90 minutes.

I coach runners two evenings a week, with a very hands-on style. I normally run the workouts at the same time as they, which keeps us all honest. Otherwise, my physical activity consists of swimming (60min) twice a week, running five to six days a week, and elliptical trainer workouts two to three times a week, all at moderate-to-high intensities.

I was at 160 pounds, give or take, for a good period of time, until I started getting into triathlon. The swim workouts definitely added muscle mass in my upper body, but I also used it as an excuse to eat more. Thus, I ended up gaining ten pounds in the past two years. The weight is (often) tolerable; my primary care physician has told me to not be concerned about the weight in light my present (good) health. However, I've refocused on running (half-marathon-to-marathon) where the excess poundage can mean a four-to-eight minute difference in race performance, depending on the distance.

My nemesis to this point in the game has been junk food. So, keeping a log of my food intake has really made me mindful of what exactly I'm eating in quantity as well as quality. Boy, have I made some bad decisions over time, thinking they were not so wrong.
