We all have to eat to live, we do it for entertainment on a Saturday night. Taste and flavor combinations can elevate any dish to a gourmet treat. Special foods indicate special occasions. Families and friends gather around the table, in the kitchen, outside by the grill. Food plays a huge role in our lives. One's relationship with food is important, and when its off, the individual suffers...every day...3 times a day. Everyone knows and deals with food personally. While in training for the MN Ironman Bike Race, I've been reading about what your body needs at different points in exercise. I don't have any answers or new tips to try, but a shift in focus as your mowin' down: What is your food doing for you?
One of the best things about biking is that food is your fuel. Think about stimulating your muscles, having a combination of energy that ready for your now, and some that will be there for you in an hour. If you've got a kickball game in the park you need to think about keeping yourself agile, keeping your reactions quick, there's food for that...sweet, eh.
That's all for now. Thanks for tuning in. See you in my yard for a BBQ on Sunday in prep for Race Day.
