OK I need a gut check here. Saturday I started my structured training for the adventure race season. I’ve been having a great time, running, riding and paddling. Sunday we had quite a crew at Cougar Mountain for a two hour trail run. It was a great way to catch up with a lot of friends.
I’ve had an easy time getting back into my training, but eating properly is another story. Today I did an easy paced 41 mile ride with Cyril. On my ride back from his house I just had to have ice cream. I rode to the QFC and bought a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup. When I got home I ate the entire pint. Am I serious? I then went back out for 20 minutes of hills that I wanted to check off my training plan and felt awful. Ben & Jerry don’t know shit about endurance training, and they must go. Tomorrow I start over.
