<p>I really do not care where I was before - Time for a retard ... I mean restart</p>
<p> </p>
<p>CW = 217</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have a series of goals I need to hit - After needing to be perfect at Leadville 100 because I was too fat (228 at weigh in) I DNF'd at 70 and not I hope I am pissed off enough to actually take this seriously</p>
<p> </p>
<p>GW#1 = 210 (9/15)</p>
<p>GW#2 = 190 (11/15)</p>
<p>GW#3 =  180 (1/15)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have given up trying to train until I lose weight - Seem like a goofy statement?  Basically when I am training I eat more to make sure I am recovering and ready for the next run.  If my #1 goal is weight loss then I readily except that I will not be able to run how I want and may have to do eliptical, stair climber or just walk sometimes.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have a goal of being in Poland next September for the WC24.  I will either run 3 days at fair in NJ in May or FANS24 in MN in June as my last ditch attempt.  Weighing 180 on 2-1-12 will put me in position to train the right way for the qualifying race.</p>

Damn.<br><br>
Coming off vacation...<br><br>
Yesterday I was at 205, which would have meant I lost 2 pounds, even on vacation...but -<br><br>
Today, my weigh in day, 208. Which is a GAIN of one pound.<br><br>
Intellectually I tell myself, hell, you were on vacation, lots of restaurants, etc. But still, it stinks.<br><br>
The deal is, I was probably doing good, but, with the hurricane, and no power (21 hours) , there was nothing to do except sit there and eat and drink.<br><br>
Power is on now, so, hopefully I can find other things to do than eat.

<p>Ran a 100 miler over the weekend, so I'm all fat and bloated... will weigh in later in the week after I pee off all this water retention.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sorry about Leadville, Flounder.  Work + sick kid kept me in Boulder until about 3pm Saturday... then I jetted out quick, paced, and had to get right back home again.  I looked for you at the aid stations while waiting on my runner, but he was way back at the cutoffs.  </p>

<p>How was the 100 - CCC?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Leadville was a combination of me showing up so heavy that I had little room for error and then committing 3 major errors</p>
<p>1)  1st 13.5 - 1 minute per mile too fast (Felt easy - but stupid)</p>
<p>2)  All power walking in 1st 50 miles was way too fast - I was always pulling away from other walkers</p>
<p>3)  2nd time over hope pass I did not take enough breaks</p>
<p> </p>
<p>In the end the fried endocrin system got me - my legs could have continued and my nutrition was OK - But really weird stuff was going on.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Although pissed off about the DNF - It was one of the best and most valuable experiences I have had.  I learned a lot from it and received a needed kick in the pants.</p>

<p>Yeah, it was Cascade Crest... it was REALLY hot... just brutal.  Temps in the 90s.   I finished, but it was pretty ugly.  Us big guys don't do well in the heat.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's good that Leadville was a valuable experience... sometimes the worst races are the best, in that regard.  </p>
