Good day to everyone... A bit of background, I am a heavy set guy (120kg / 260 lbs) and about 180cm (6ft) tall. Mostly mid-section accumulation of fat ... about to turn 40 in 6 months I've come down slowly from my high of 135kg over the last 4 years... some due to diet some due to more active lifestyle... I am able to jog without knee / back pains, and I have run some 10K races in the past. I can squat 225 lbs, deadlift 205 lbs (grip strength being limiter), and bench press 210 lbs. Right now I am on PTTP at least 3x a week; DL and BP Jog about 9-12km a week (3/4 times of 3 K each); I have a 1.5k loop near where I live. Recently read Super Joints and working out how to get that in as well... Goal is to get in general shape and assess if racing a 10K / Half Marathon in Nov 2020 is a good idea... Trying to see if I should change things up a bit when I get to 1x BW for DL and BP or wait until I progress a bit further (i.e. meet the SFL standards?!) Already Read S&S and ETK; sounds like if I change things up should probably go S&S PM --> ETK ROP The belly fat is preventing the extension on the downward part of my swing which a is a bit frustrating... *Dreaming out-loud* In my mind the strength part of the journey should be PTTP to 1-1.5x BW S&S PM ETK ROP PTTP to 2x BW RTK (i.e. go double KB) PTTP 2.5x BW S&S Sinister Beast Tamer *might be missing NW as I have done some reading on how Pistols can probably help my running... The sport part of the journey... I took the bait on the romanticize of the marathon distance... But with a need for balance of Power and Endurance (did a DNAFit test), seems the Half Marathon is the more suitable goal... I guess after I finished writing this seems more like a share than a question in specifics... Thanks!!!
