Well I knew going in that I wouldn’t be very fast as I’m not in shape for racing yet. I’ve been feeling flabby as my diet over the break and the holidays hasn’t been very good. Got on the scale this morning and was shocked to see 150 (my best racing weight is 143-45). it's pretty normal to be heavy in the off season but certainly racing during that time can be a key dow. However, all and all a good day as I won the race! Time to start eating a little better and enjoy the grind.
Also decided to keep this log going. There's certain features that are still much better than Strava, such as the shoe manager. But more importantly the act of writing a recap on a race or workout here helps me keep in touch with how I'm feeling and progressing.
