I'm 39 yrs old and I'm giving myself 1 year to do it. I'm about 10-15 lbs over my college age weight and it all seems to have accumulated around my gut.
I still run daily (5 miles), but don't do any long distance, speed work, and only the occasional "fun" race.
So what do I have to do, lose the 15 lbs before I can even start with any ab work? I already have a pretty good diet and hardly eat any junk food, my problem is just quantity. I tend to eat very little for breakfast/lunch and then way overeat at dinner (multiple helpings, etc)
