More on food
Hehehehe "more on"
Today my copy of Robb Wolf's new book arrived in the mail. It's another book on Paleo eating (and a little on exercise etc). His style of writing grates on me, but the content is excellent. Many months ago I read Gary Taube's Good Calories Bad Calories, and the whole 'paleo thing' is really an offshoot of, or an implementation of, much of the material collected in Gary's book.
I'm not pure paleo at the moment, but on the whole (80-90% at a guess) I probably am, and it's certainly working for me as it does for many others. I think, as an eating philosophy for sprinters, it's ideal. Unlike our enduro cousins who need lots of carbs, we're not chronically glycogen depleted and we don't need mountains of pasta, jelly lollies and the like. Quite a few of my sprint squad people are going down this path with some significant body-composition changes happening to them. They might call it "low carb", or say "you've turned me into a carnivore!", but it's working for them too.
And after all is said and done, steak .. it's just plain yummy!
Round 1 in 2 days. I'm getting excited! My new tyre is glued up and will be ready, tomorrow we're painting the lines on the track and doing some very short efforts to get our gearing sorted and lines 100% set. It's all good!
