@Krista I think Victor is on the right direction here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6Bm4Aj7vlc I would only add, that most will be in the training and recovery with a surplus of calories, and you don't really need to supplement with cooked foods, but you can try adding up amino acids in the form of extra greens, extra oranges, fenugreeks, chlorella (not spirulina). Your may do a bit better when also taking a bit more omega-3&6 like ground flax seeds and chia seeds, but I need to do some more research on that, but its worth experimenting with. You body may also need to adjust a bit to the new sources of nutrients (cooked vs raw) and may need to stabilise and optimise its digestion, absorption and utilisation. Let us show some pictures and keep a food, train, rest logbook to stay objective, have fun and good luck!
hello fruity friends... Is anyone out here training for figure or body building? I need tips and support. Im training for my second competition coming up at the end of october. I did my first show this past april as a vegan but not raw. I'm a new raw foodie! Way too much tofu! Now i'm going in training on the 80/10/10 diet. I keep hearing that i won't get enough lean muscle only on 10% protein. SO now that just pissed me off and gave me more of a challenge. I won't stop until I place as a raw vegan! ANy thoughts and comments would be appreciated!
I am looking for a training partner in the NYC area or on Long Island.
Hey Dharma-Dev The thought of going for a run in bedroom slippers makes me smile but........ hey when I started getting out of running shoes I used to slip a pair of old socks on when I was transitioning to barefoot running :-)
I forgot to mention Dog Mushing and Ski Juring - which is one person on skis getting pulled by one or more dogs on a long lead. I have about 4 friends who regularly have their Huskies pull them on skis.
We have the popular american sports: basketball, football, soccer, and Hockey is very popular. Frisbee is becoming bigger each year. But I dont care for those except for the occasional passing of a soccer ball.
Crosscountry stuff is the biggest. In the winter XC skiing is Huge, and a ton of 20+ Km runners up here. They keep going no matter the temperature. People are out on the roads on bikes and even more on our downhill trails we got going thu the woods and the hills. we turn out really good skiers at the University here and we have an anual 40k race on Autumn Equinox that runs by my house.
I personally like taking the woods trails down and up steep hills in a pair of bedroom slippers, but they get torn up real fast. Looking into better options for minimalist Running, the barefoot isnt such a good idea cus we have such untamed trails.
I've been doin 10k bike rides each day just commuting and havin fun goin about 80-100% effort. Dont know what it is but I can never ride the bike at a slow speed, just get too impatient.
Also me and my mates have a small stick fighting/ sparring group. The Yoga crowd up here is big also, and I teach classes twice per week.
Some of the runs you can look up to see the runners times in Fairbanks Alaska are: The Equinox Marathon, The Midnight Sun Run, Chena River Run, and lots of Nordic Skiing Races.
Theres maybe only about 5 dedicated people on Bikes in the middle of Winter. Im not one of them, but I do enjoy occasional rides in the winter. The commute for us on the bike is 30k per day with only about 5k of that being on hills. So we have big rides with out even trying.
Dude...studded tyres..that is dedication to getting out on the bike. Fairbanks Alaska sounds like a cold end of the world.
Dharma-Dev please share what is the the local sport scene is like in your end of the world, what is the main activity.
Welcome to30 Bananas a Day!
