In a past lifetime, a coach said to me… “Really… you are a fat kid squeezed into an athletic body!”
What he meant is that I have a (slight) obsession with food… and I think about it all the time. The fattier and more unhealthy, the better. The good thing is that gone are the days that I have to make weight to compete in my class… I’m just bummed that there’s no “Clydesdale” category for mountain biking.
And although I don’t like consistently thinking about the pre-, during and post-meal planning… I dream of nachos with fake cheese, hot wings, grilled to perfection cheese burger finished with a chocolate mousse and a pint of ice cream.
Unfortunately, most days look like this:
Ahhhhh….. the reality of calories in, calories out!! (Oh, and if you’re lighter – you tend to go faster.) Wings, burgers and beer don’t make you go faster.
I guess that means that I need to train longer so that I can ‘afford’ those treats!!
