With the forecast of wet weather starting tomorrow (maybe even today, I may be dodging strorms this afternoon), I ‘ve tried to take advantage of the nice sunny weather of the past few days. I’ve managed some decent productive miles, having logged 115 miles since Sunday.
Legs feel great. Not tired at all. That’s a good thing. Needless to say, I am very pleased with my progress. I think I am hard pressed to remember when I’ve been this fit this early. And when I mean early, I mean for Ohio standards. It would be nice if I could lose a few more pounds. Right now I at 178 to 180 pounds. I would like to get down to 170, but the older we get the tougher it is. At least I don’t look 180!. And since I’ve been getting some serious training in the past month or so, I’ve been eating better. And no Crohn’s flareup, not even mild!
There’s a race this weekend at Granville. Circuit race over a 6 mile loop. I’m giving serious thought to getting out there and see where I really stand, racing with the geezers. The promoter of the race has a reputation of being disorganized and it sounds like the number of racers showing up. Which might be a good thing! Entry fee is 25.00 and they are paying 3 deep.
