Not good. I had too much fun this off season and packed on a few pounds. Fourteen pounds, to be precise. I was reading Tim Ferriss' book, The 4 Hour Body, and he has a great idea. You put your commitment out there (such as on your blog) for all to see. That way, if you back out, you will look like a total failure, a wimp, and a loser of the highest order.
I'm going to spare everyone the "before" underwear shot, but I will post one in mid-April, when I hope to be 150lbs. of trail running coiled steel. Well, maybe not an underwear shot, more likely in running shorts. Also,I will provide a weight update every Sunday.
I'm not following Ferriss' weight loss plan (slow carb), I think I'll stick with primal. I lost 20lbs. in 2 months last time I stuck to it.
So, starting weight is 174lbs.(ugh). I was @ 160 lbs for my last "in shape" race on Dec. 4th, and I'd like to get down to 150lbs. for Glacier Ridge 50K in mid-April. So 8lbs/month or 2 lbs/week. Doesn't sound too bad......
Gonna miss this though, it's my weakness. No Old Mil, except for cheat day, of course.
