2-3 lb of prime british beef?

or water?

nope i was swayed by the theory that protein can't get through the digestive tract quickly enough, and that 'raw' amino acids (inc creatine) are therefore preferable... we'll see what happens

logically though that argument is flawed - why would evolution come up with a neat solution that we couldn't however make full use of until we developed industrial pharmacology??

... but i'll let you know if it seems to help

it bloody was - i did a 5-hourer through the fens and the headwind was torture

how come, whichever way you turn, its always a HEADWIND?? how come you never get a tailwind??

I did a 3hr out and back (undulating) the back was less than half the time of the out - but it pi@@ed down on way back

The bacon butty and tea were good in the cafe when i got back to car

at least it was dry for me, but i came up with a neat trick....

i always seemed to go faster on a twisty stretch than a long straight, i thought it was the surface, or the shelter (lots of trees) but actually it was because the long straight was demoralising - so i worked out that if i looked at the computer instead of the horizon on the straight, i stopped losing speed

oh the joys of doing a 10 mile loop repeatedly!

I'm doing loops in the AM - not far tho'
25/10/2003 at 23:22
i decided today to ditch the 10 mile loop and try to find a 30 or 40 mile loop... a bit of a change of scenery

but you were looking for a flat bike run - you should come down one weekend - i'm not too far from peterborough now you could book your bike on the gner east coast line

Hey WildWill,

Can you explain something for me? To lose weight I understand that you need to have a deficit in cal intake. This can be done by increasing excerise and/or decreasing cal intake. Resulting in the body burning fat stores. But you're saying that Carl needs to increase his intake to lose more. Can you explain why increasing intake would help lose more fat/weight.
I'm interested in this as I'm not exactly a mountain goat.

I think you have mis understood WW he was saying, I think, that to fuel your body for the training to do Ironman Carl will need more calories. This got mixed up with the fact that carl id losing weight at the moment. Carl seems to have got it about right for his current situation. He says he is losing weight gradually and he is not feeling over tired from it. I suspect that most of his training is low intesity and therefore his intake is being subsidised by his stores, which is ideal to lose weight.

Too few calaries would not allow you to train as effectively and therefore burn less calories and metabolism would not speed up as much.
