Ice Cream – Day 5 – 4000 calories and a stop at the cowboy church

Today was my highest calorie intake since starting the project, but I also did a 3 hour ride comprised of 4 x 30 minute tempo intervals at Ironman effort (235w, 243w, 247w and 238w) with 5-10 mins easy riding after each one. Before the ride I had almost a pint of Ben and Jerry’s “The Tonight Dough” plus some coffee, as well as 100g of oatmeal to help fuel the ride. The oatmeal is about 350 calories, so I still got more than 90% of my daily calories just from ice cream. The ride was fueled by 4 x Starbucks ready-to-drink Frappuccinos.

Weight has stabilized in the 76-77kg range so I’m in for at least another day of ice cream (which is good news since there are still a few I’d like to try).

Daily Totals: 4006 calories (445g carbs, 125g fat162g protein)


this post is a part of the raceweight project, a “calories in, calories out” experiment to see if I can get to my racing weight eating mainly “bad” foods
