FAILURE FEEDBACK

TODD BROWN


THERE'S NOTHING LIKE A SPECTACULAR FAIL FOR LEARNING.  Whether or not Thursday was a true failure is questionable, the fact I fell off the athletewagon is undoubtable.

Exercise:  lazy walk on beach

Diet: donuts for breakfast, a giant serving of PickUp Stix for lunch, Domino's for dinner, and multiple servings of Oreo ice cream pie while watching Revenge Of The Sith.

Why the fall:  son Shane's bday + all kids in town for Mother's Day = party time.

The failure feedback:  2 lbs heavier than previous morning, and some karaze dreams

Without that feedback from the scale and dreams, nothing would be learned.

Racing, with a number or just amongst friends, has been a great source of feedback.

But, I think chasing PRs has been the best teacher because I experiment more.   

Tinkering with tread patterns and tire pressure,
bike position,
nutrition,
pacing,
apparel,
time of day...
oh, it's an endless list... and chasing a PR is endlessly fascinating... figuring out what is holding me back - often it's the blubber, my homegrown ballast, that needs to be cast off.

Speaking of casting off, we're moving to a new location this month... so if you have a hankerin' for some deals, there are a number of things we are closing out

No promo code - deals are too good, unless you're part of the PEDALposse and have your super code... which you know you should be.
