Well I hope that everyone had a great holiday and you are looking forward to the New Year Festivities. After my last post about weight issues etc, typically I managed to pick up a stomach virus on the evening of Dec 23rd, which although was in full force only overnight, its effects were still being felt on Christmas Day. Yep, it meant that I couldn't do justice to the feast that Spencer and Kristin had put on (well, mainly Kristin I think!).
It got me thinking back to my post and as Sarah gave me a odd look as I climbed onto the scales after a night of being sick.....a loss of 5lbs, I was at summer race weight! I felt as though I had been hit by a truck and had voided everything that I had eaten the previous day. The virus did a number on me and still now 5 days later, I am starting to get my appetite back and only yesterday did I feel like working out.
I'm pretty sure that I have made up the 5lbs already as the body rights itself but it made me remember to say that if you do try and lose weight, do it slowly :-)
- Perfect day out on the trails yesterday on the @alchemybicycles at #schaefferfarms . . . . . . #IFB #parvillacycles #MTB #xterratriathlon #mtbracing #marathonmtb
- Kind of a rough day at 6hrs at Woodstock. First 3.5 hrs were fine (even with a 10min stop for horses on the trail) and then stomach shut down. Probably related to stomach bug earlier in the week. Decided not to head out for another lap. Great trails though and a good race from Joe's Bike Shop as always. 📸: @dchammerette . . . . #6HAW #parvillacycles #mtbracing #mtbmarathon #IFB #patapsco #mtb
- Wilderness 101 2019......hot, hot, hot
- Still reflecting on @gravel_worlds from this past weekend. 150miles of primo gravel in Lincoln NE with 10,000ft of climbing. It was hard but I went for it and utimately paid the price in the last hour when I cracked, really cracked. Crawled to the finish just over 9hrs after starting.....but yes it was fun! . . . . . #gravelworlds #gravelride #IFB #parvillacycles #cycling #vandessel #lincoln
