Anti-Aging Diary - monthly journey to longevity and fitness from Reverse Aging Now, the anti-aging video.
   

Now starts the tug of war between I should do and want I want to do. I have a confession: I don't particularly like to run or lift weights. I love biking, hiking, swimming, tennis and skiing, so I can still get my aerobic workout, unfortunately there is no substitute for strength training. Weight resistance is essential to fend off osteoperosis. Today I hit upon something I'll now try.

Today for the second time this week, I spent less than an hour doing a single set on the Nautilus at my gym, Marina Fitness Club. I was energized and felt stronger, rather than bored because I took on a number of different machines in a row, never repeating myself yet working every muscle set in my body. I'm not very consistent with weights, but with an Olympic distance triathlon looming this year, I'm going to try a new approach, Nautilus three times a week, but just a single set, pushing the pace to get my heart rate up as well.

A little note on my own progress: My weight crept up a bit after the heavy eating available over the holidays, yet I began the year 30 lbs lighter than I was the year before. I lost a bit of ground, but 2007 was a sucess.

Regular tennis helps because I have a reason to keep fit as competitive as it might be.

After a Christmas trip home to Boston, I've picked up my life again at Venice Beach. The local pool has reopened, and I've resumed swimming as I prepare for the Los AngelesTriathlon. The course runs a couple of hundred yards due west of my window and will be my biggest athletic challenge in my life.
