I spoke with a nutritionist friend of mine and she agreed to work with me for the entire year! I'm really pumped about that! I'm one of those weird people who can skip meals no problem... but it always catches up to me. I gotta stop that! Ingrid really knows what she's doing and has been the team nutritionist for both the University of Oregon Football team and Oregon State Universities athletic department. I'm super lucky to have her support!
It was also good to read through Jameson's most recent post about recovery and nutrition... its nice to know that I'm not the only one thats challenged by this stuff. I need to take a page out of his book about those two aspects of our sport. Recovery is a challenge considering that my kiddos don't really give a flyin fohootie that I just got done with a long ride... they wanna play! It's all good though... b/c before I know it... they won't wanna play with me anymore AND they won't appreciate my sweet dance moves at random moments throughout the day... boy will THAT be sad.
Ok... SO... today I just had a "long" run. I'm doing as I'm told. I'm going slow. I'm keeping my HR down. I'm a good boy. Scott joined me again and we held each other in check... thank GAWD for Scott! Here's what we did:
- Total Time: 57:49
- Total Dist: 6.4701 miles
- Avg Pace: 8:54/mile
- Avg HR: 143
