As my diet is progressing I am beginning to obsess a little too much about food. Yesterday I allowed myself a piece of cake before my 1½ hour simulated climb of Alpe d'Huez in the basement (It was 10C outside and raining cats and dogs as they say in Denmark so there was no way I was going outside). That piece of cake was the motivation that I needed to cycle through the all of Confidence which really isn't that good when you know the twist at the end.
This morning I was 101.6kg so the loss is slowing a little, but still continues. I am confident that I can get down below 100kg before the race and I am aiming for about 98kg.
On Wednesday I took my bike into the shop to get the gears checked out as they were not running as smoothly as I would like since I fell off a couple of weeks ago. Thankfully the nice guy confirmed that it was not in my head and sorted me out with a new derailleur hanger. Perfection has resumed in the shifting department :-)
Whilst in Fabin I picked up the energy gels and bars that I plan on using in France. As I recall from last time, you really need a lot of these things to keep up your blood sugar levels for such a long time so I took advantage of their offers - 14 energy gels and 10 bars. I hope that's enough, but I don't think I could carry much more in my pockets!
