    Default HELP, I've gained 12 pounds since Saturday...

    ...and still going strong. Ever since the 6 tacos I inhaled after 16 or so beers I consumed downtown on Saturday night I've been out of control. Part of me is totally disgusted with myself, yet another part wants to see how much weight I can gain before I level out. I really want to shut'erdown tomorrow just to get a decent workout in, but then again it's 2 for Tuesday's at Bamboozle's..

    I felt the same way when I started my "journey" as a 142 pound college freshman.

    Most of it is water. But you have screwed up your system for a while and will bloat, then dehydrate, then bloat, and so on. Been there, done that..... many times. As a matter of fact, after 12 days of working wrestling camps in an up-tempo way, I am rather bloated at the moment myself.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    Yup, that's the rent-a-beer cycle. You never buy beer, you merely rent it.

    I rent a lot of coffee. I hope it good for you, you wouldn't believe how much I drink.

    Operation shutdown. Haven't ran too much over the last few days I must confess. But that's going to change, I start training for the Columbus marathon on Monday. (Chicago registration was already full) I don't want to make a big production out of it..I think I talked about my last marathon too much and was over confident in my abilities. I just wanna qualify for Boston, I need to improve by 2 1/2 minutes.

    Mums the word. We need a smiley button that denotes the word "focus" (as in Daniel-san).

    I'll break the news here that Collin Palmer has verballed to Ohio State. SM pm'd me that the forum admin of the best Ohio web site (the most professional) spoke to both Collin and Tom Ryan. But it's not officially official till it appears on Intermat, thus I bury it here.
