Quick Update

Gulf Coast Half in the AM. It's supposed to be 60 degrees at the start. Doubt this one will be a PR.

Argument with my scale

So I've embarked on a relatively successful fitness program in the time since Christmas. I've lost a 15 lbs, and, by the exceedingly inaccurate impedence method used by my bathroom scale, gained 3lbs of muscle, lost 16 lbs of fat, dropped my body fat percentage to the low teens and increased my percent muscle mass to the low teens.  I'm 36, weigh 184 pounds, and I'm 6'2" tall.  Yet, for reasons that escape me, per my scale, my relative body age is 48.  Really? I ran the Goofy 3 months ago, and I've run two half Marathon since. I work out 3 times a week on a bad week, but my scale thinks I'm pushing 50? My wife, on the otherhand, it says is 19 despite the fact that we're the same age...
