I can't deny; I've been undermotivated to "train" since Saturday's 75m Populaire. Today I awoke early and felt disjointed. After looking at the scale for the first time in a LONG I first took a look at my MyPlate diary from October and November. Interestingly, since the start of June I've ridden over 800 miles but have gained 5lbs. I strongly think it's a bit of Gary Taubes' theory that the body strives for stasis, so all the mega-mileage means mega-eating to recalibrate. Back in the Fall when I experienced a nice 20lbs weight loss I cycled little but walked very regularly. So, this morning I marched out for 1 hour of walking. And it felt good.
Today meant various (non-bike) errands and getting ready for 'L's bday swim party. We were taking drinks-n--dogs and I felt a strong need to use the Ute for said purpose.
