Day 112 - Rest Day, Food Cravings and The Iron War.

May 29, 2013        234.2 lbs

Today was a rest day. I didn't do anything except run a couple of errands and go visit Kevin Tran at Vinh Loi Tofu with The Boss.

As a weight loss day, a little bit tricky. I was having food withdrawal all day. What I mean by food withdrawal is I was craving grain based carbs like I used to eat all the time and I was having a tantrum I couldn't eat whatever I wanted. It's not like I didn't eat, I ate all day. I just wanted something else.I seem to go from not hungry to very hungry more quickly now. I'm hoping it is my metabolism speeding up.

I recently read the book Iron War by Matt Fitzgerald. It is about one of the most famous Ironman races ever run. Basically, Dave Scott and Mark Allen ran this incredible race pushing beyond limits.

I found it fascinating to read about the early days of Ironman and even triathlon in general. However the 1989 race was incredible. Both competitors were so evenly prepared they fought it out to the bitter end. Who one? Don't want to ruin it, get the book. It's a good read.

Tomorrow, I have a brick workout. Until tomorrow myfriends.
