As of late I'm eating around 3500 calories a day and losing weight slowly.

That's fair criticism and I am pretty content with the way I look for now since I'm more performance oriented.

I had a VO2max in the 20s before I started running

I find it ridiculous that my heart/lungs were in such bad shape when my exercise regimen consisted of just weight lifting + sedentary lifestyle.
