Nice. The last lbs were a little tougher, but were also the most rewarding for me. The difference between a large and a medium shirt was about 8 lbs. Finally saw a little definition on my arms right at the end, too.

Pretty damn awesome. 1:05:44. I think I was 6th in novice men. I was very pleased with my results. Never imagined I could do it a year ago.

i'll definitely be doing it again. already thinking about the wrightsville beach sprint in September. it'll be good to have a specific time goal to try to achieve now that i have a baseline.

buddy is trying to talk me into the carolina beach double. think it's in july.

do it!

looks like you have the same swimming problem I do: you turn your head too far when breathing

yeah, there's a lot of things i need to work on with my swimming, but you should've seen how bad it was when i started in January. it was practically a doggie paddle.

what's frustrating is there's a little guy from work who tarzan swims the whole time and did it in something like 5:30. he makes no effort to improve his technique. there's no telling how fast he could swim if he actually worked on it.

I decided to do a no cheat April and really stay dedicated to keto for a month. I've done really well so far. No cheats 6 days in.
This week I've finally gotten past a little bit of a plateau. I've lost 2.5 pounds. I now weigh less than I did at my wedding. I can fit into jeans that I haven't worn in 5 years. And I've increased my deadlift and bench max. 48 pounds down, 12 to go.

great job

Maintenance is going well. I'm actually down to 167 lbs. I don't really want to lose more, so I'm focusing on really dialing in how much I need to eat to fuel my exercise.

I rode in a charity bike ride yesterday and was able to keep up with the front group and actually pulled them for a while, so that was cool. Haven't rode the road bike outside much since December, so I didn't know what kind of speeds I could maintain. I was happy to see that all the time on the trainer has paid off.

I tied my PR in 5km on Sunday. I set it last year. Just can't quite get past 20:24 or under 20 (my lifetime goal). Gonna be in the second half of my 30s next year -- running out of time?

One of the kids (24 y/o) on my team at work ran track in college and told me his times -- sub 15s. Different league altogether.
