Well, as promised, here is what I ended up with after a week of only shaving my neck. As you can see, I still have trouble growing hair anywhere on my body.
And in my mind, this is what I assumed that I always looked like:
Anyway, mission accomplished - it bugged the shit out of my wife. So, Biggest Loser Bob aside, I had a pretty good brick workout this morning. I started out a bit late on the bike going 11 miles. I am still going to do a 16-17 mile run tomorrow, but wanted to get out there and keep my legs loose. I always feel a bit flat at first if I don't run from Thursday to Sunday.
I was originally just going to do the bike, but I decided to turn it into an official brick (bike/run) workout - including the fast transition. The main purpose of turning this into a brick workout was to break in a new pair of shoes! I recently won a pair of Brooks on a twitter contest. I normally would have just dove head first, but they came a 1/2 size too small. Instead of creating a big deal out of it, I just decided to use them for my short runs. In short: they seemed a bit tighter than normal but nothing that seemed to be that big of a deal. I cranked away the 2 miles in 15:20.
I could see how you would want to practice these ahead of time to get used to them. The first quarter mile of the run was tough - even after only 11 miles or so.
