March Fun!

So I havent been able to get in the huge mileage I wanted in March but I feel good. Went out this Saturday and was able to stick with the fast guys. Last year I'd get spit out of the group faster than an Apollo rocket. This Sunday we did 33 miles and I was with them and taking pulls. Felt awesome! I need to keep this trajectory going through May.

Some bad news is that I will not be doing Tour of the Dragons, scheduling snafu. I am using that weekend and will convert it to a team training camp. I am in early stages of planning a 3 day training camp in Northampton. Hopefully all goes well. I also want to turn this into an annual team trip if possible. We shall see!

Getting a lot done with our contractor to remodel our home. Hopefully tomorrow I get a final price on the scope of work. Then I also have to go to an interview at Northeastern to get accepted in the MBA program. A lot going on! Stressful but fun at same time. That is life!

Mid-March Plans

Weather has been on and off. Looking at another possible 6-8 inches on the ground after getting a sneak peak of decent weather last week. I was able to ride outside Thursday and Saturday AM. Did 25 and 30 miles, on two very different courses. Felt good to mix it up outside. Saturday we were averaging 16 MPH. Not too shabby and I left some out on the course. I ended last week with four straight bike rides. Trainer, outside, trainer, outside.

This week I have a lot I am doing to get myself ahead so when the good weather comes I can be outside for hours. I am doing taxes and home design Thursday. Installing new TV this week. I have a lot going on at work, it should settle down once the Union votes on a new contract and I can go back to a normal schedule. My MBA apps will also be 100% complete this week. Exciting times!

My weight is staying at 153 or so. I want to hover around this weight and in the next few weeks, I am looking to lose 1 lb a week until I am to near 145.
