One goal I did have that I didn't put on my list, mainly because I wasn't really serious about it until about a month before the race, was getting my gold medal at Around the Bay. After my result at the Chilly Half, I was pretty sure I'd be able to do it. It wouldn't be pretty but I'd probably be able to pull it off. I did it but it took me almost a week to recover from it. I went much harder than I should have. But I honestly don't think I would have changed anything, other than the fact that I should have booked a massage a couple of days after the race. That probably would have helped speed my recovery. Oh well.

My cycling has been sporadic but at least it's not non existent. I'm really looking forward to getting outside and riding once the weather warms up. Realistically that probably won't happen until the end of April but that's ok. I've got the Computrainer to keep me somewhat accountable in the meantime.
The area I need to get a better handle on is my diet. I was so good during the month of February but this month has been tough. I think my crazy work schedule, mixed in with the races and G being away has made it tough to stay on track. We haven't actually done a proper grocery shop in about a month. THAT is highly unusual for me. I will be rectifying that tomorrow. My body is craving good wholesome food. I am going to toss out all the little bits of chocolate and other junk that have made their way into the house over the last few weeks as I can't seem to control myself once I indulge. So into the trash it goes.
Other than that, I'm happy with the way things are going. Next stop - BOSTON!
