Day 14- Can You Successfully Diet On The Road?


For the first time here I am going be dieting on the road, that is to say, I will be managing macros out of someone else’s kitchen for about three days. This will strain discipline mightily as our faraway friends are calorie friendly and seem to eat anything they desire without gaining an ounce. Of course he is twenty years my junior and works in a metal shop all day, he can be forgiven for not understanding that I cannot indulge without consequence.  I will take my kitchen scale in case there is a need for it. Most of my shopping will be done at H.E.B.’s deli and produce sections. I can run in the morning using the 20 out, 20 back method, and substitute straight jumps for jumping rope, several days will not hurt anything but my coordination. I will continue to blog on my travel computer and that way daily reports will continue. Maybe the change of scenery will inspire some new direction.

31 days and counting! This year’s Hotter’n Hell 100 is going to be HOT!!! I have been doing a little training in the heat of the day to acclimatize myself, but honestly, you can only do so much. You cannot develop a resistance to heat stroke except by staying out of the heat. This year, as last year, I will be wearing a cooling vest made by Ti Mountain.


While everyone else slaves away in 100 degree heat, I will pedal along in 80 degree comfort! Each rest stop is a ritual, water on me, water in me, get a snack and fill the camelbak.  14,000 riders and 2,500 volunteers converge on Wichita Falls, Texas on August 29, 2015.
