Biking Season Begins!
Things this week went just as I figured they would. My cold is pretty much gone now and Thursday morning, Crazy Jim and I went for our first decent bike ride of the year. Crazy Jim is an awesome friend who started cycling with me last year and did the El Tour ride with me and my son.
So, we rode 22 miles (which included some strong hills) and it felt great to be back out there.
My eating was decent, but not great. During my sickness and business trip, I was not very focused on eating well. Consequently, I lost no weight this week.
This week marked a new chapter in our family life. My wife started a new job this week, which brings a new and great schedule to our family. Other good things happened as well, and I feel like we can finally exhale and settle into a new phase of our lives. (For the past year, we have been going through some turmoil in a few areas and it all finally seemed to move forward in a positive direction this week). It feels really good.
I'll be riding or running today and tomorrow. Mileage will be posted on dailymile.com and on the sidebar on the right.
