The NYC staff have done a great job of trying communicating. The last email said (paraphrased slightly):
yesterday. Everyone in the city is
working very hard today to bring the city back to normal, but this will take
more than a few days. Some of the damage
is extensive, and there is a lot of flooding, which is the biggest problem
closed, and the city’s mass transit system is not running. Most of the bridges and tunnels to Manhattan
are also closed. Electricity is turned
off in parts of Manhattan, but the power at the Hilton and Sheraton Hotels is
still on. Central Park remains closed,
and there are a lot of trees down.
And, as the title of the blog post suggests, I have one big complaint about this week: metabolism!! I miss being able to eat whatever I want (well, not that I was eating a ton when training – but it seems like mountains compared to now!) and actually getting hungry in between meals and snacks!! This is probably my least favorite part of the taper… I’m not in the least bit hungry, ever, and am having to really watch portion sizes now. Yuck. And I’m even running every day – I can’t imagine if I wasn’t! Perhaps this is why a lot of America is overweight?
