Re: Ultragirl's Race Prep

Brainstorming for speed work. Once my calf can 100% be relied upon, I'm going to want to do the painful speed work that will push me to OBLA and ultimately make me faster. I am not too nervous as I have found a strange quasi-religious calm when I am being most machine-like and I have purposely sough...

vegan pancake problem

Seems like I tried it all! Flax seed + water to replace eggs. Adding more oil for binding or oats or bananas for binding. Poured quantities of baking powder into the mix. Fake sugar + cinnamon do a lot for the taste, but I have not found a true binding! Seems like I can't get a protein-powder pancak...

Re: Ultragirl's Race Prep

Did you guys know if you don't have dairy for a while your body stops producing the enzyme you need to break it down? Vegan Horror Story #1 I remember converting to veganism and about two weeks in breaking down one night for some ice cream. I was just about to deepen my commitment and the old ways m...

understanding flavor principles

One of the biggest deterrents to clean eating is not knowing how to bring out the best from our ingredients. Another is boredom, which there's never a reason for. We can travel the world when we cook, without any time or effort. Just getting a handle on a few basic flavor profiles can change your di...

Re: Ultragirl's Race Prep

CVS brand flush-free niacin (inositol hexanicotinate) 500mg.

Maybe flush-free would help, or just not take it, no biggie.

Re: Ultragirl's Race Prep

I guess outsiders can't tell because I haven't shared too much yet, but I've really re-hauled everything in the last two weeks. The end of this came with the successful Umstead registration. Now I will go through a number of phases in 7 months leading up to my race. The first phase is UMSTEAD HONEYM...

MON - 5-10 mile run TUES - 5mi speed work WED - 5-10 mile run THURS - 5mi speed walk FRI - 5mi run or rest SAT - super long run (depends on week, how far away the race is, etc.) SU...

Re: Ultragirl's Race Prep

Saturday September 7. I'm a bit of a thinker and most effective when I plot out the reasons I do things. One of the reasons I started writing this is to track what's keeping me going internally so I can look back on it later. And if I happen to articulate something that resonates with somebody else,...

Re: Ultragirl's Race Prep

Thanks. I just signed up for Umstead. It was such a close call - all the spots filled in like three minutes. Something like 1000 people competed for 250 spots online… What an exciting morning! http://www.umstead100.org/ I'm signed up for the fifty mile option. The book is inspiring, certainly. So fa...
