I have a rule when I start my recovery after a race – for every hour I race I get that many days after the event to eat whatever I want. So if I race for 5 hours I get to pig out for 5 days. Last month I did Ironman Lake Placid and it took me 10 hours so I just bought myself 10 days of good eating. Another tradition I have is to go out the day after the race and eat something I would normally never eat…something good and nasty. Before I arrived in Lake Placid I watched Coach Troy’s On The Road – Lake Placid and in this video he stopped at a local ice cream shop.
During the race I saw this very recognizable place on both of my loops on the course. So, needless to say, we took a trip there the day after the race.
The intention was to just get some ice cream, but when I walked up to the window I was given the challenge – they had the Big Nasty. Obviously I couldn’t let this great culinary find pass me up….man, I felt nasty…but I earned it :).
