Hello Group,I have a good friend who has recently learned that she has cancer. My understanding of the 811 diet is that it is too alkaline to let cancer grow and survive and that it will stop and…Continue
"Hello Vincent. Some thoughts: 1) Do you usually run on the same side of the road all the time? 2) When you do the fast running, are you on a track (and going the same direction all the time)? 3) Are you wearing new running shoes?…"
You wrote, "We've been running for several weeks now. We are now up to a 2 or 3 short runs and a 5K long run per week." That's an excellent start. No rushing.

"@Rick, I would like to offer a different perspective from miles. I think if your background is solid--40+mpw for a few years and no injuries of note--you could finish a 100-miler on half of the 300kms miles was suggesting. Also, I think…"

Here are a bunch of answers to your questions.

"A common suggestion is about 200 calories per hour (up to maybe 250 if you are over...180 pounds/81 kg), so maybe one banana and three or four dates per hour. One easy way to take care of your caloric needs is to estimate about how long you…"
Yes, you are totally right about that: Eliot should have explained what he meant by "as little as possible" in his original post. I like how you wrote that you liked how he came to his conclusion. I'm with you on…"
I wasn't asking you not to critique Eliot's ideas, I asked you not to jump ugly with him. We're all here to share ideas, not to tease each other.
1) Personally, I would recommend pre-race eating or not eating as…"

No need to jump ugly on Eliot. You are grossly overstating what he said.
First, many people don't start a long run or race on a full stomach. I don't either. When Eliot goes 6 or 12 hours, he would prefer…"
"@ Annette, be careful if you use an unstable surface like a bosu ball. Simply balancing on one foot can be good, especially if you close your eyes. Same work to the stabilizing muscles but no risk of turning your ankle while it is on an…"

Durianrider & Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw vegan lifestylists' across the Globe! 30bad is a high standard and high performance team! We're here to help you make our team! Let us know what HCRV assistance do you need?
I've been having issues with some very healthy foods, like spinach (considered a "slippery" food in traditional Chinese medicine) and pears which have been going right through me. I'm seeking foods that tend to move more slowly through the system.
30bad is a HCRV (high carb, raw vegan) internet community which promotes a high carb raw lifestyle free of any animal products. Our forum does not tolerate encouragement of anything contrary to HCRV. Nor do we allow endorsement of non-vegan items or practises which involve the imprisonment, exploitation, abuse or murder of sentient beings.

Hello Byron! Thanks for the friend invitation. Yes, may knees are feeling much better, thank you for asking. I went to chiropractor for a bit, did some knee strengthening exercises, and bought a pair of vibrams, and I haven't had any problems in months. :-D
My banana smoothies can’t get any more simple than they are. 96 ounces usually takes 15-18 bananas, about 10 ounces of water, and 2 cups of ice. That’s it! Sometimes I’ll toss in some mangos or strawberries. I really like to add raisins if I’m adding something. But that’s about it until the berries get in season.
Crohn’s disease! I believe you are the only one I know that has that. I am completely ignorant of challenges of Crohn’s disease. I’ll check it out, but give a quick 1,2,3.
As for other nutrition; my last 2 Ironmans I used juiced grapes and celery. It’s great stuff, but gets too sweet for me after 3 or 4 bottles. I should try that again in 1 bottle, then use other stuff too. In my last 2 ultras (50k in March and 36 miles in April) I soaked raisins in water overnight, then combined that water with coconut water. Very tasty. Might be a bit low on the calories, but was loaded with sodium.
That’s enough words for now. Take care.
Yes, you got it. Just like any other daily activity - for example brushing your hair. As a child, that's tough to do. You can see a yound child thinking through every movement. But, after enough repetitions, there's no thought given to the muscles in the hand the wrap fingers around the handle, or the action of the biceps, or triceps, etc. You just think "brush hair" and it happens. Learning Pose was very similar to that for me. Man, it was hard to learn. Then, being with Nicholas for a weekend and seeing how easy he makes every movement look - that was inspiring. He is unbelievably talented. The biggest thing I took from that clinic was to just do the movement - in everything you do. He did a thing with one of the participants and pushups. The guy couldn’t do more than 5 pushups, because he was thinking about pushing with the triceps and squeezing with the pectorals, etc. Nicholas convinced him to only think about lowering his shoulders to the ground and raising them. That’s really all a pushup is – you lower your shoulders to the ground then raise them.
There was an adaption phase for sure. But, I did that over the winter, so I was able to build up slowly, and I never wore socks when I first started Pose in my Puma H-Streets. On real badass, rocky trails I’ll still take a beating if I wear my H-Streets – but it would have to be a nasty trail with pointy rocks. I’m still searching for the perfect trail shoe for me. I like the Inov8 f-Lite 230, but I blew holes in the uppers after only 200 miles – wide feet (4E). I’m too cheap to go through shoes like that. I get over 1000 miles out of my H-Streets. I still have my original pair that I take out from time to time. My current pair has over 500 miles and they still look and feel new.
Hi Byron. Good to find you here. Michael Arnstein suggested that I check out 30 BAD, so here I am as well. Nutrition is one of my hobbies. It is a complex topic, and there is always something for me to learn. I will be at the 1/2 Sauer 1/2 Kraut Marathon on June 13 and the Joe Kleinerman 12-Hour Run on June 19. See you then?
