So, I've been working out indoors because we've only had 2 nice days all month, and I was slammed during one, and the other (yesterday) I promised to work out with the fiancee on the track.
And I haven't been posting much because when I cant be riding, other than being supportive to others, it's very frustrating to talk about riding.
But I've been working out, and I lost almost 9 lbs between 1/5 and 2/5.
Sort of been bouncing around the past week in the low 320's (I HATE water retention).
Anyways, I hit the outdoor track yesterday with the fiancee, and found myself feeling slow through each of the 4 miles, but then I checked my times. Consistently walking 14:10 minute miles, and my first one was sub-14. I knew the treadmills in the gym were off, but I didnt expect them to be off by a full minute a mile as to what speed I was doing.
I'll need to pace myself for the half-marathon, but things may be looking up a bit.
Plus, we're going to have a few days in the 50's this week, so the ice may be gone, and I can get on the bike a bit.
