Bike, swim, bike, lift...

The main reason that I posted the pictures of my „before“ and „after 4 years“ the other day was not to say „Hey, look at what I accomplished“, but rather to encourage any of you who might be struggling with your own goals.

I haven’t reached my weight goal, but I am so close that I can almost see the Finish line on the horizon. Don’t ever give up on your dream (no matter what it is) and keep moving forward even if storms blow you backward sometimes. I’m saying this to myself as much as any of you.

So fitness...after my run Saturday I felt good, I still had energy and my legs were in good shape. I guess next Saturday I can had a few more uphill climbs to my long run.

Yesterday I rode my mountain bike to the swimming pool in the neighboring town of Blankenloch after church, about 8K/5M. The pool closes early on Sunday so I only managed about 600 meters before they kicked me out. Afterward I rode my bike around Blankenloch scoping out the location of next Sunday’s (April 2) 10K race, before heading home. Altogether I rode about 18K/11M on the bike.

Later in the afternoon I did my weight training with my free weights, along with several sets of.pushups and situps.

Tonight I have a 14K/8.7M run on the schedule at a slightly faster tempo. A good way to start a new week. Happy running!
