I was recently accepted into the 2004 New York City Marathon and have to start thinking of my training soon. I've read a lot of training guides and none of them factor in wedding planning when budgeting per-week mileage.
L and I are off to Chicago again on Thursday for two parties and lots of eating. So much in fact, that I view this week's trips to the gym not as training for general fitness, but as a means of protection agains the many calories to be had this weekend. My friend, newly married this fall, offered this helpful advice in fighting the fat:
"Chug 1 and 1/2 liters of water in the morning, again in the afternoon, and again at night. You'll feel so full, you won't be able to eat as much during the day. You will, however, be in need of a toilet every hour but that's the price for less poundage."Posted by The Groom at February 23, 2004 12:03 PM
