Now that Broad Street is over, that means that I won’t be racing for several months. I have the entire summer to train on my own (long and slow, the way I like it), without worrying about any upcoming performances. And what does that mean? It means it’s time to get fat!
You see, there are certain foods that I avoid most of the year. They’re either too fatty or too sugary, and will slow me down.

It may not surprise you that I’ve gained a couple of pounds in the last fortnight, between such eating habits and the fact that I live a sedentary lifestyle (don’t we all?). But on Monday I begin to ease myself back into training. That means that I’ll have to start eating nutritiously again, and in a month I’ll be as bony as ever.
