Gobs of Blue, Frozen Salsa, and A Clean Bum
As expected, tonight's Anaerobic Intervals hurt. A lot. But It gave me the opportunity to see what I'll look like when I inevitably stroke out. Red faced, neck veins bulging, making a face like Popeye, etc., etc.,
Also as expected, by the 4th or 5th interval a blue wad of Gatorade flavored mucus exited my wind pipe at hyper speed and made contact with the old top tube. Nice.
But the job got done and that feels good.
You have to check out the race recap by Kid over on the Salsa site! He recently competed in the Arrowhead 135 race in Northern Minnesota.
The temperature at the start was -28F!!! And dipped lower than -35F at times. MOTHER OF GOD!!! Kid's recap is a gripping read and after I finished I knew without a DOUBT that I will NEVER do a race like that.
Time to go buy milk and toilet paper so I can brace for tomorrow's predicted snow storm. Why do folks rush to buy milk and toilet paper whenever a snow storm is in the forecast? I guess if you're trapped inside for the day you would want a high calcium beverage and a clean ass.
