so i had me a time trial of sorts to do this morning, needed to qualify for a local club training SIG... I wanted to shave some time off to make it into the faster range so as to be able to ride with some buddies who are also doing it. But my performance has been even more lackluster than usual on account of the fact that the only sport I have indulged in since Thanksgiving is Extreme Eating.
Thanks to FOO, I somehow did it - knocked about 19 mins off a 24 mile course. My nemesis is anything relating to my bulk being challenged by gravity - so I took Tom Stormcrowe's advice and applied some Buddha breathing techniques and lo & behold, I became the time trial I wanted to be. So, thanks, Tom!
Oh, and I also want to thank you, Jsharr - I brought along the ziploc baggie you recommended and when i coughed my lungs up they fit in there just fine.
I needed to bring the extra large 'freezer' size, what with the fatty gristle and all, but still. It kept my jersey pockets clean and dry.
