Well, it has been a little bit since my last post, so I figured it is time for another.
Not much has been happening on the mountain biking front in the last couple weeks. I have been spending a lot of time on the Kinetic torture device in the basement. I am very ready to get outside. I also tore apart the Superfly down to the frame. So now I can order some new parts. I hope I can get it back together before Yankee.
Now, on to the main topic of this post, which is people with special needs. Now, this isn't the politically correct usage to refer to those folks with disabilities. No, I am referring to the people in the forums, specifically MMBA.org.
There has been a lot of complaining lately from a vocal few about their treatment in these forum. There have even been other blog posts complaining. Apparently, "kid gloves" need to be worn at all time to cater to these people, and their special needs.
In happier news, this is the final week of my 5 week binge period. I have gained roughly 10 pounds in that time. This is the most I have weighed since last August. This coincides with the date that I vowed to drop weight and ride faster after a disappointing finish at the Stony Creek TT. I most likely no longer meet my goal of "Race weight" by Yankee Springs.
Starting next week, I am going to dial back the calories. I have a conservative plan for this, as I think going from a huge calorie excess to a deficit would to crazy things to me. I hope to dial back faster than the plan, but it will depend on how I feel going from eating ~500 calories at a time, 6 times a day to more reasonable amounts. Right now I eat more calories before lunch than I did in an entire day 2 months ago.
Now, if you will excuse me, it is time for second breakfast...
