In addition to finishing the cleanse I also finished my re-read of 'KELLY'. It's a 1986 biography of the great Sean Kelly. As Bryan, Sarah and I headed out on our Sunday battle of the elements I kept thinking of a Kelly quote I read the night before. Kelly was asked if we would go out and train on one of those days when you look out of your window and know it's freezing outside. "The thing", he said, "about the cold is that you never can tell exactly how cold it is from looking out a kitchen window. You have to dress up, get out training and when you come back, you then know how cold it was." We dressed, and headed north into the high winds and misty skies. Upon our return, I could accurately say, it was a good day to ride.
Since then I devoured a La Casa margherita pizza, a Rochefort 10 and a couple ounces of scotch. Definitely don't feel as fresh as I did during the cleanse but my cravings have been satisfied. So with that in mind I'm trying to figure out how to stay on the clean program diet but increase my calories and carbohydrates. Tomorrow I'll keep going with the smoothies but I'm adding in buckwheat pasta to the chicken and vegetable recipe. I'm taking it all in moderation. Limiting my exposure to the "no go" items, and putting an athlete's twist on the "go" items. I'll keep you posted.
