Spring training

Though March started with a run in the freezing rain at a temperature of 33 degrees, the remainder of the month brought some pleasant and (finally) springlike weather, which has made training a lot more enjoyable!  I'd almost forgotten how nice it is to run with shorts and even with the chafing and sunburn that accompany warmer weather running, I am definitely not going to complain. 

The nicer weather also brought the opportunity to finally test out the new Zipp 404s and Powertap on my tri bike.  Between the new wheels, a more aggressive bike fit (thanks, Durham Cycles!), and the many winter hours spent on the trainer, my easy-ish ride averaged over 17 mph so I am feeling pretty optimistic about the coming race season!
