April was most productive month to date, even though it wasn't nearly as productive as I would have liked. Sadly May is turning out to be even worse because of all this rain we're getting here, but I digress.
In April I took a threshold test with Mike Birner of Mid-Maryland Coaching. I had taken the same test back in May of 2007 so I was interested to see if my winter work had paid off. Suffice it to say that it did, and big; as soon as I get the compiled results I will post them, along with explanations, here.
I'm definitely stronger than I ever have been this early in the season and maybe even in the past three years total. I've been getting a lot of encouraging words from my friends on the Wednesday night rides and a lot of people have been asking if I've lost weight. All-in-all I'm definitely headed in the right direction.
On the weight-loss front, I've kind of stagnated at ~210 although I've been down to 208. I think I need to reclaim the basement so I can start weight training again.
