    Everyone that is doing this is awesome. It will pay dividends this hunting season. I started running in January as well. I have run a 5k and the Boulder Boulder 10k. I lift 5 days a week and run 4 days a week. I am 6'1" and weigh in at 185.
    A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.

    Down 5 lbs, just started working out, been eating better. 225, i got down to 220 before my hunt last year, I think I can get to 210 by Sep. Doing stairs one day, interval running the next to pump up my cardio. After either of those do 30 min TV workout, which is good overall body and core strength and more cardio. Pushups and situps if I have the energy. Of course walk the dog her 1.5 miles a day.

    The biggest challenge right now is the heat in Houston, its close to 100 degrees when I get off work and working out outside you are fighting heat exhaustion as much as your own limitations. Last night I ate dinner and took a nap, then started my workout at 8 pm when the sun went down, seemed to work out ok.

    I'm doing good. Cardio is coming along and now that the snow is melting I can get out and do some hiking/scouting trips. Found out today I got a limited entry bull moose draw so I am going to add some more weight to my pack to be ready for those big quarters.
    People in SUV's and suburbs will kill more game animals than a man with a bow, ever could.

    If anyone needs cardio work, run intervals. Sprint 2 minutes, walk 2 minutes. Do 5-8 reps. At the end of your sprint you should be gasping for air. This is the BEST way to improve your ability to metabolize oxygen, it works amazingly well to get your wind up.
