Goals update, March 2015

March went well for me. The weather turned nice and I started riding more often. Maybe not quite as much as I wanted, but I got a few really good rides in. Including following up a 40 mile moderate effort ride on a beautiful Saturday with a 30 mile easy ride to one of my favorite breweries on an equally beautiful Sunday for a couple pints of Berliner weisse.

And I parked right in the brewery. Wit’s End is such a great place.

Late in the month I ran the Spring Fever Half Marathon again and set a new personal best time of 1:57:40, at 8:59 a mile. That beat last year’s time on the same course by over 30 minutes

And I actually stuck to my weight loss plan for once. The good news is running and cycling burn enough calories together that I don’t feel like I’m starving myself. Four pounds down in March and on target for the end of the year. I’d like to go faster but we’ll just have to see how things go.
