The Sexiest Man Alive

Last night I was wondering whether I still want to do this. It was "once more into the breach" and an hour of 30/30s on the trainer.

Check. Done.

This morning it was "once more into the breach" for an hour of running including 3x7 min. hard.

Check. Done.

Walk to the scale.


Notice some additional ribs and abs and muscly stuff in the mirror.

Step on the scale.

140 pounds.



I. Still. Want. To. Do. This.

That is worth getting up early and doing two workouts a day.

That is a reason why.

Damn near 43 years old and 140 pounds with 9% body fat.

My tapered shirts need more taper.

My skinny suit fits.

I just cinched up another loop on the belt.

And Day-uhm, I'm a sexy beast. Nothing like hitting your race weight to make you feel like the sexiest man alive. I may be slow, but I LOOK FAST!!!!!

And, to paraphrase Fernando, "it is better to look good than to be good."

Can't wait to work out tomorrow.

Why is this not happening to ME??!!! Damn it! I only have 6 weeks of traing left and I'm not slimming down and when I tried to cut out food I started hated life.

You give me hope. And apparently you aren't so slow if you did a 4 hour ride and a long run at PR paces. Apparently you really will cut through 140.6 like a hot knife through better. I can hardly wait to read your race report.

I was just having that conversation with spouse - I said, 'do I look leaner? I think I'm leaning out.' and he said uh huh.

I haven't stepped on the scale. I'm skeered...
