A slow start to spring

It's nearly April, but it certainly doesn't feel like spring here. The skies are dark. The trees are barren. There were snow squalls today. Above is a picture of our local palace (which is a ruin) that I took yesterday.

March has been a reasonable month running-wise.

I was able to get 3-5 runs in every week, plus at least one swim.

One of my goals for the year was to break 1:30 in the half marathon, but I fell short of this at the Alloa Half Marathon earlier in the month. On a perfect day for running (cold; tailwind), I did 1:34:20. I gave it all I had, but there just weren't enough training miles in my legs to run stronger.

My next goal is a long hill race, so I need to get on the trails.
