Last night we held a celebration dinner for our Eagleman Training group at Piccola Bussola( http://www.kpsearch.com/DF/Picallo/all.asp ) in Mineola, NY . Tony and his team, as usual, did a great job with the food. We probably all ate too much although it could be debated that is impossible to eat too much of Piccola Bussola's Tiramisu or Tortufo.
During the dinner we discussed training and racing plans (Cary shooting for 2010IMLP, Fran trying to get everyone else on the east coast for 2011, and Christine planning her wedding around event dates) and decided to keep our small training group together for Timberman and perhaps even beyond. It is frightening that we were discussing our 2011 race calendar now!
I got on the scale this morning and found I've gained a few pounds since EagleDay. Not a surprise. This is probably due to a much reduced recovery/training workload coupled with a much increased food consumption for the past week or so. This increased consumption, by the way, was not mosty "healthy" choices (see previously mentioned tiramisu and tortufo).
Tonight is my first "real" bike workout post half-ironman. It is a workout that I normally hate (as riding hard and all-out hurts) but I'm sort of looking forward to it in a weird sort of way.
Recovery over. Back to work. Lose those pounds. Timberman is 8/23.
