So I figured I would write a little about my food consumption pre and post op. It's the same everytime...... Nothing to eat or drink after midnight the night before. Yeah yeah yeah.. that's fine I will just load until then. So this time it was starting at noon the day before:
- PRE OP
- A package of salami
- A box of triscuits
- Three tacos
- Nine more tacos
- Two 7-ups
- A quart of ice-cream (mmmmm cold stone cake batter w/brownies)
- Two bottles of water
- POST OP
- Venti vanilla soy latte iced
- Footlong Sub Sandwich from Jersey Mikes
- Nine Shrimp tacos.
- 4 Banana twinkies
- 2 cokes and 4 bottles of water
So pre op I was weighing in at a whopping 153lbs. Today I weighed in at 154lbs! Not to bad I guess. My guess is I will be down to 150lbs by next week now that the binging has subsided.
Note to Food Nazi: Don't worry my torso will be transparent by Boulevard!
Lastly, Boy.... If I had a nickle everytime someone asked me to do this... I'd have about 4 cents

I felt ok (not great) for about two third of the race. I found the sweet spot about 10 wheels back or so. Right with Cap'n America and a few AMD guys. Perfect! This is where I need to be. Not alot of effort except when it came to the corners and what it felt like coming out of every corner. About two thirds in a crash sets me back a bit. Not to worry I could work my way back up. Wrong!! The pace seemed to quicken and I felt like I could barely hold the bars. Next lap around I see Popeye from Five Star coasting along. "Well...he must have gotten caught in the tangle". At this point (arms weak, hands numb) I start thinking about lunch!! Woo hoo! can't wait to eat! Wait, still racing.. Probably five to go and I am way to far back. Don't gas it now cause it's gonna take alot of juice to get to the front and I probably only got one shot. Ok, let just give a little. All of the sudden Phipps comes up the right side of me on the climb and I jump on but get squeezed out in the corner at the top. That's ok, moved up to about mid pack and still felt like I had a little gas. One last move on the last lap and I'll be where I need to. Coming up on one to go I move up the right side and am back in the mix and all of the sudden...... 3rd corner right at the base of the climb, two guys go down and I get shuffled to the back! Arghh! Of all the places! Didn't have the legs to get back to the front and just rolled it out!
Arms still feel a little like wet noodles today, but who cares! Season is over and now for the long slow miles. Build for next year!
