Actually, pre race I weighed 141lbs and when I crossed the line I was 148lbs. Not good. At one point during the race I was up 10lbs. A nurse along the way flirted with pulling me from the race. Yikes. But I told her I would pound the S-caps duing the night. And I did. Finally started dropping the weight after the river. (yes, I hadn't taken ENOUGH S-caps in the canyons.)
Yup, that whole water/salt/electolyte puzzle was a stuggle for me that race.
Now I will do the scan again in about six months and hopefully I will come in under 140#'s. My goal anyway. That is only 10 pounds so I'll give it a try.
Don't really know where I was going with this but kinda neat to have all this diagnostic stuff around. Fun to play with anyway.
But to be honest, I don't think the Guiness in the fridge can wait six months. Just have to run more miles to work off that 16 ounces I figure.
Looking forward to a good long run of 6+ hours this Saturday. Oh, it will be slow as usual which is fine. Just thankful that I am able to do this kinda thing. I will probably run into Olga and Gail I am sure. Hopefully I can tell them apart if their hair is cut the same way like it was at one time last year. Just kidding Olga. Hope everybody has a great weekend.
