Too skinny for my pants

October 24th, 2006

Sometimes I think it would be easier to re-align the universe than to align a perfect situation for Ironman.  A few weeks ago, if I wasn’t recoverying from an impact/fall on my knee, I was fighting a virus.  Thankfully now, I’ve come to recover from both and find myself in a good state of body and mind.

In response to more focused training, over the last week I’ve been slowly losing weight I’ve noticed.  Today for example, I climbed into a pair of pants that normally fit me well, which had a space the size of Georgia between myself and waist band.  What weight do I have to lose?  I didn’t think much,…but it’s coming off.  Good thing,…as the last thing I want to be transporting around the run course in Florida is more weight than is necessary.  I can’t help but recall something a friend and sub 15min for 5km runner Matt Johnston told me once,…he said he knew he was fit when there was no fat to pinch just under his pec muscles on the side of his rib cage.

Crazy,….us endurance types.

Taking PROBIOTICS now:    Healthy intestinal flora = Happy gut = Absorbing nutrients and energy during Ironman
