    Bill D- Ya know...seriously..you`re doing so much more than most people (just by eating/drinking sensibly and doing all that walking), and so much *less* when it comes to detrimental stuff (avoiding sugar), that your not looking age-typical doesn`t surprise me in the least. Now... if I could just get you to do some kind of Resistance Training

    It`s not all that tough to make a huge diff without going off the deep end. Just bodyweight stuff is a gazillion times better than nothing. IMO people overestimate what needs to be done for it to register and underestimate what it takes to go beyond the basics. Per usual, I put the emphasis on mindset and Critical Thinking.

    Well since the beach is closed I canít walk my usual route so I tack on another mile when I walk now. Iím up to 5 miles. I did it this morning. I donít feel a thing from the extra mile.

    Ah, I like the way you`re finding ways to work around no access to the beach. I bet it`s far less demanding when you don`t walk on sand, and I wonder what you might do to up the Intensity (as opposed to increasing the Volume) since you didn`t feel a diff from that +25%.

    Heh heh, I can`t help but quip that if you found a way to do most of that at a steep incline you might indeed feel it when you add some more time/distance But you`re *outside* instead of doing it down in my basement and that`s got a lot going for it too!

    I do wonder what you`d think of the Heavy Hands approach to walking...done *correctly* it`s not as easy as one might think. Just pumping my *unloaded* hands during my steepest incline work absolutely makes a diff. It sure worked great for ol` Len Schwartz! Yes indeed, I`m still trying to find some way to insert some Resistance Training into your regimen Don`t want you to lose Fast-twitch Muscle Fibers!

    I can research the Heavy Hands approach and try it out. For the meantime though, Iíll keep doing what Iím doing until the beach opens again one day.

    I don`t blame you and I think it`s great that you have a good area for walking.

    *Is* it a lot easier not walking on the beach? Sand can really be a factor!

    Sand can be a challenge for sure. I try to walk in the areas that are more level but some days/weeks there simply are none due to the tides and such. I still enjoy it though. Worst part about it is getting sand in your shoes which is no big deal.

    Oh yeah...forgot about that Jersey Factor!

    Heh heh...I don`t think I *have* shoes that I could "hose down", at least not with regard to their insides. Can you tell I`m not a beach-goer

    Bill D- That`s for sure! And even my more-casual shoes would suffer from that...even my *athletic* shoes!

    Requiring "B" width severely limits my options in footwear.

    Oh, and I find it interesting that you wear both Bill`s and Ralph! (This gets us back to H & F-related topics too ) With my build the Bill`s (M1..too baggy to look right in some areas, and M2..OK as long as I buy large and have `em altered) are currently the *only* ready-made pants I can wear, and nothing I`ve ever tried from Ralph came close to fitting me (not even their Purple Label stuff..pricey for OTR!!). Wondering how you can wear stuff from both..

    (And yes, I still knee-jerk against wearing Ralph`s stuff even though I 1) appreciate its quality and 2) esteem him *so* highly. Just a, uhm...generational thing I guess. That is *NOT* to say I pass any negative/critical judgment on anybody *else* who wears it, quite the opposite! It`s uhm...all about me )

    Ive been wearing Ralph fo so long that the way his clothes fit me have become my standard. However, when it comes to pants/shorts my true size is actually hard to find. Billís has it and when I saw those shorts for $15, I pounced on them. Iíll gladly buy more Billís if I need more pants that fit precisely although thatís gonna be a LONG time from now. My closet is overflowing as it is.

    Oh, stepped on the scale this morning and looks like I lost 3 pounds. Maybe Iíll need new pants faster than I think.

    Bill D- Ah, OK..we hard-to-fit people have to grab what works for us. Gee, *$15* for those shorts! That`s simply giving them away.

    I hope those 3 lbs. are the right kind of weight to lose People over ~30 who don`t do Resistance Training can shed that much muscle in no time. (Yes indeed, Mr. Broken Record again )
