So close!

I’m up to $7000. Got a lot of overtime hours last week, which certainly helped. It’s adding up quicker than I expected. Living frugally is helping too, though it’s hardly pleasant!

Run a mile in 11 minutes
Not too hard.

I’ve kept myself in reasonable shape all my life. Army life definitely helped. My fastest time for 1.5 miles was 8 minutes 40 seconds, about 2 years ago. Doubt I could manage that now though!

Strength train

I trained hard and heavy for about 6 months last year. Got up to 210lbs thanks to a high calorie diet packed with protein and carbohydrates.

Feels great to be strong. Gives you power and self-confidence, not to mention health benefits, provided you don’t take anabolics.

The hard part is keeping it up. Diet is key, without a solid diet- religiously followed each day- it will be hard to make and maintain strength gains and mass.

I lost a lot of muscle in the last few months from stopping training.
My advice: If you’re gonna do it, stick to it long term- or you’re just wasting your time, effort and money.
