Is carbo-loading old school?

I’m still licking my wounds from the race on Sunday. I emailed my Garmin data to my coach and his analysis centered around my flaws in handling my glycogen levels. Admittedly, I did not do any carbo-load before the race (I thought carbo-load was considered “old school”) and paid for it with elevated heart-rates, elevated efforts and very little speed. I should know better than just giving up carbo-loading without substituting it with whatever is “new school!” The only good thing is that my upcoming races are more about endurance than speed.

After resting yesterday, I went for a mile-long swim today at Lifetime Fitness. It felt good just to swim laps in very comfortable, clean water after that nasty water in Tempe town lake.

I never posted a picture of the bike shirt that Jon Bird gave me, so here it is!
