Training Swimming – 14 laps, a mix of front crawl and breast stroke but included 2 lengths of back stroke. 1 kettle bell workout with 7.5kg/16.5lb kettlebe...

Re: Trying to start my life as a vegan!

Hello Mike and welcome, I love your forum name! It's just spending a bit of time researching and relearning which may seem a chore at first but I can assure you once that process is out the way you won't even have to think about it anymore, you'll just shop and eat vegan on autopilot like the rest o...

Re: Miss V,V (Leicester, UK) training for Triathlon

Another fruit heavy food diary that shows large gaps for improvement! Milkshake – 1 banana, 1 glass of soya milk, 1 scoop of raw cacao 1 banana Cup of...

Re: Miss V,V (Leicester, UK) training for Triathlon

Sunday’s tend to be my “eat whatever I like” day although I want to phase this our really and be healthy all the time. I’m hoping by the end of Aug I will have ditched the Sunday fry up! Considering all my days were junk day before this week I've not done too bad! 1 banana 4 majool dates 2 slices of...

Re: Miss V,V (Leicester, UK) training for Triathlon

Thank you PhytoAthlete I think it's my sweet tooth that loves the fruit so much, some weeks I think I could be a frutarian lol - certainly on taste alone! I'll get planning some nice vegetable based dishes and salad including some cruciferious vegetables. Thanks for the input. Today has been a testi...

Re: Yeti Log: The 100 Mille Run, AKA Run Beard Man Run!

Hello Yeti, I love your positive attitude. I agree in that we can be many things all at once, specialisation is one way that suits many but being multi trained is another way that also suits many and strength, agility, stamina, speed, endurance is absolutely possible in the same person. There aren't...

Re: vanilla ginger pear protein shake

This sounds amazing, thanks for sharing as I often get stuck in a same-old-food rut. I won't be able to get squeezed ginger juice but I'll try it with grated fresh ginger - I don't mind a few bits/lumps!
