I'm sure that the Marine Corp is hard at work this very minute, updating the curriculum for female recruit training..........

Don't you mean downgrading?

Kegel exercises are standard over here for female personnel. They are in addition to the regular PT, the guys use the extra 20 minutes to do free form.

I did triathlons for awhile. Aspired to Hawaii Ironman, but never got there. Got to training regularly at 1/2 Ironman distance, which is run 13.1 miles, bike 56 miles, swim 1.2 miles.

Two events training per day, 6 days a week, 3 on the 7th day. I ran my fastest marathon, while doing triathlon training. Down the road in San Diego County is one of the international meccas of triathlon training.

I am not sure whether I admire you, think you are insane for doing that voluntarily, or both.

Well at the time I also drank about 12 to 18 cans of beer, daily as well. When I quit drinking 20 years ago, I reduced the training as well.

Drinking is partly an obsession of the mind, together with physical addiction. Running/biking/swimming takes some obsession, too.

I still "workout" but it is now walking and biking. And not so much. I am still "obsessed" with getting some exercise, daily.

My personal best marathon was 2 hours and 55 minutes at age 39, some 27 years ago. That is a 6 minute 40 second mile, for 26.2 miles--not just casual jogging.
