Well since I usually am very aware of what I'm intaking/doing figure I should track it finally. Currently I am training for my first marathon on feb. 17th but will also be doing a bit of cycling for my first racing season as well.

I usually shoot for 75 % raw, eating usually one cooked meal a day, although sometimes it more sometimes its less.

8:30 - Pear

10: 1/2 serving Chocolate vega w/ handful of pecans and 1 frozen bananna

1:30- 1 large head of bok choi with homemade hemp oil/date marinade

6- 1 Rebar Bar + 1 homemade thrive diet chocolate blueberry energy bar

9:30 small salad with balsamic, brown rice, red+ black beans, steamed spinach, rooibos tea


Training: Off

I'd look for some Time Trials if I were you. That'll mix things up with the regular college road races you'll be doing. Plus the intensity is constant which is similar to marathon running(of course a marathon will take much longer).

Congrats on the bike. That'll be a great bike for crits and sprint tris once you put clip on bars onto it. Also if you take care of the bike the compenents will last you a long time. I've got over 15000 on my 105 stuff.

10 :15- thrive diet direct fuel bite

TRAINING- 1 HOUR LAP SWIMMING

11:40- thrive diet recovery pudding

12:50- Green Smoothie w/ 1/2 serving natural Vega ,spinach, 2 tangerines, 1/3 cup soaked almonds, pumpkin seeds,

3:40- almost raw broccoli cheddar soup ( spicy nutritional yeast sauce, avocado, broccoli) w/ sprouts on top, buckwheat + 2 dates

7:15- brown rice, "Moroccan sweet potatoes and vegetables" (sweet potatoes, chickpeas, onion, carrots, raisans, cinammon)

9- 1 apple, 1 clementine, 1 cup egyptian licorice tea.



It was really nice after doing the 3 hour drive to come home and have my mom of made the rice and sweet potato stuff which was way delish (and apparently really simple as well).
As much as I wanted to hop on my bike and ride it around, I'm not going to have access to a lap pool for the 3 1/2 weeks that I'm home so I figured I should get a good swim in before then. Tomorrow I wanna get in the running tempo workout I missed on wednesday and also just go on a joy ride : )

11:15- 1 bananna

TRAINING- 5K TEMPO RUN (21:12)

12:45 - 1 bananna, handful of dulse

1:00- Smoothie w/ 1/2 serving natural vega, romaine lettuce, pear, blackberries, pomegranete juice

4:55- 1 apple, handful of walnuts

5:50 "Thai Dynamite" from Pei Wei w/ broccoli, carrots, tofu, snap peas, red pepper, scallions + brown rice

10:15- medium salad w/ 2 cups spinach, snap peas, celery, carrots, cucumber

11:55- 1 cup kukicha tea

I also took my new road bike out for a joy ride in the late afternoon. : ) I was explaining to my mom how the clip-in shoes work (this was my first time riding with clip-in) on the driveway and then she said "well be safe" and I went down to the end of the driveway, remembered that I did n't have my helmet on and went to put my foot down and in the moment of confusion the bike fell over onto the side with me included haha. Didn't happen again but thought it was kinda funny.

haha My dad is in love with Pei Wei (i don't think its all over so for those who don't have one near by buts its a "fast-casual" asian diner chain owned by P.F. Changs) Not the worse thing to be in love with, especially since there are things on the item I find suitable, and I acutally really like how they prepare their tofu.

8:35 - thrive diet energy pudding, coconut water + 1 cup yerba mate

TRAINING- Long Run moderate pace- 19 miles (2:45: 35) slurped on thrive diet energy gel every 25 minutes or so

12: 35 - thrive diet recovery pudding

2:00- Green Smoothie w/ 1 serving natural Vega, kale, frozen bananna, orange, pumpkin seeds, pomegranate juice

5:20- Freebird ( think a non-corporate and better chipolte) burrito with black beans, cilantro, guac, pico, grilled veggies on wheat.

10:00- Salad w/ 2 cups spinach, 1 cup butter lettuce, carrots, celery, cucumber

12:00- 1 cup "Egyptian licorice" tea

Run went pretty well today, it was perfect outside today, about 36 with no wind or anything felt great in my shorts and a long sleeved technical shirt and took (sp?....this was for all the canadians hehe...i learned this word from a canadian...no one says it down here in tejas) This was my first time using a energy gel of any sort (thrive diet or commercial) and iwas pretty pleased with it. I didn't bonk out on energy ( as I had tended too on the last 2 long run...17 and 18) at the end and it tasted awesome. Knee didn't give me too much trouble, some more iceing tonight and taking the next two days off (of running) should take care of any lingering inflamation.
