Booze. I quite like it. Real ale and red wine are my poisons. I tend to cut down a couple of weeks before a race, then celebrate immediately afterwards.
My first Ironman next year -- so I'm thinking Jan 1st would be a good day to hit the wagon for at least 6 months. It can only be a good thing (and 6 months off will pay for hefty entry fee).
So what do others do? Abstain completely? Not drink for a few weeks before a race? Interested to hear your thoughts.
