Then just keeping with it and trying to improve little by little helps a lot.
    I'm still inching my way upwards with the weights. My legs are improving the most, yesterday I did pistol squats (one leg and to the bottom) with 30 pounds on my shoulder for 6 reps on each leg. Just before that I did an easy set of squats to parallell with 145 pounds for 5 reps.

    The lift done in this video matches my strength level (about 120 kilos or 265 pounds total weight per leg for 1 repetition) :



    I know people who are fairly exactly twice as strong as I am.

    I had to stop running this week. My heart rate kept staying really high, (even though I've been running for 3 months) so the Dr. told me not to run for the week. I go Monday for a stress test.

    In my opinion, running every day can do that to you. I did that once, alternating between very moderate running on one day and a bit more strenous running on the other day. After a few weeks I felt exhausted in a worn way, my heart rate was high and I felt like I was at a high altitude. It's difficult to tell when you're going too hard when you do the same workout every day all the time.
    I personally feel much more comfortable with running harder then taking one to several days of recovery, that makes it easier to ensure full recovery over time. It also adds the benefit of improving your ability to perform in a more progressive manner. Even just running every other day then doing a completely different workout on the days inbetween makes things easier on the body.

    I can't do a pistol squat unaided. Or at least my mind won't let me yet.

    That's what I've been doing...usually Monday run 40-45 minutes, Tuesday cross train, Wednesday 40-45 minutes, Thursday cross train, Friday rest, Saturday run whatever I'm supposed to with the training regimen, (last week was 5 miles) rest Sunday.

    Of course...if I've been running, and working out all this time in the anaerobic heart rate zone it's no WONDER I can't lose any weight.

    You mean the aerobic heart rate zone ?

    There are progressions. A little sideways support using the opposite hand can be very helpful in order to figure out the stability aspects.
