Goal update, November 2014
It’s getting colder, and so it’s getting harder to lose weight. I tend to want to hibernate and eat when it gets cold. But I still made progress; I’m down 2 pounds and feeling pretty good.
We had some very cold weather and the first snow of the year, but I kept running. Then it warmed back up and I got some good chances to be outside. Last weekend was especially nice and more than half of my cycling miles were in the last four days of the month.
I started thinking about my goals for 2015. Should I focus on distance again, and simply up the numbers? Or should I make goals to run a certain number of races, or set specific times? I’ll think a while on it. A hard but achievable goal to run a 50 minute 10k might be a good place to start. Maybe a 2 hour half marathon. I guess I’ll decide in the next month.

|Running||600 miles||96 miles||910 miles||152%|
|Cycling||1,000 miles||138 miles||1,279 miles||128%|

Hi, I’m Steve Block. I’m an Iowan, but have lived in Denver since 2007.
I write, take pictures, run, and ride my bike when I can. Most of my writing is in a journal, though the best ideas find their way here. My photography is a long ongoing hobby, and I have photographs on 500px and Flickr along with a smaller photo portfolio at ev-15. I started running last November, where I have progessed to regular 10k distances. For 2014 I set some nice goals for both running and cycling, and plan to issue regular progress updates. I brew beer pretty regularly too, and started developing my own recipes last fall.
I’m reliving the past, in a way, over at retro focus.
