The plan was 5 days. Hmm. It turned into 3 days of pre-fast, 10 days of fast. Today is first out of 5-6 post-fast day.
*) Pre-fast. Dinosaurs come to mind. Chewing that much of fiber was something.
*) Fast. Doable, no biggie. 2-nd & 3-rd day were the most difficult. Pissing contest/spectacular. Headaches (still have them). Really low energy. Started riding bike 5-th day (low energy & need for close proximity to toilet), road only - Shannon/Kennedy "close to head of Kennedy trail". Last several days - chilling feet & arms.
The goal was to hit HBP. This did not work at all. Weight was not considered as a goal, but obviously it worked for weight - 15 pounds. I am back and under fall weight. I am sure some of it (hopefully not much) will come back starting today as we start eating. Hopefully this loss will really help climing Kennedy/Woods/Hicks road.
If anybody interested, I guess, could write a longer report/impressions.
Embarking on another experiment against HBP (really want to drop pills) - daily cayenne powder drinks.
OT. I am 220 now & ride 2007 Rockhopper HT. Frame & fork (RS Dart 3) are "native", everything else is upgraded. I am fine with it and have no need for FS/etc... Guys, what tires would you consider kinda perfect/safe for stuff like Kennedy trail throughout the whole dry season - I mean grippy on all parts of the trail, not too bumpy on rocks? Last year I switched from stock Spec FastTrak to Kenda Nevegal 2.35 and am not sure it was the best desicion - heavier, much tougher to ride (I guess rolling resistance), though a bit less bumpier. I did not want to ask this question in general forums as I am interested specifically what you guys use on Kennedy/Dogmeat and stuff like that. Thanks.
