I've been eating a lfrv/Fruitarian diet since Jan. 2008
A lot of people from family, friends, training partners and etc think that I'm unhealthy or I'm 'soon' going to 'breakdown'.
Well I keep running faster, keep pushing new limits and so far so good...
I've run so many PR/PB from 10k to marathon's to ultra distances I can't keep count these days.
I ran a 2:30.59 marathon a week after running a 50mile race in 5 hours 50 minutes. On top of running 150 mile training weeks. I run 30 miles a day at times and only cut back on miles b/c I have to spend more time at work!
In the last 3 weeks I:
Won the Napa Valley Marathon in California in 2:31, then ran a 100 mile training week, then over the weekend ran a 1:10.56 1/2 marathon, then ran 160 mile training week, with a 65 mile day and finished the week off with a 2nd place finish in a NYC Central Park 15k in 50:29. 2nd place in a Central Park NYC race is pretty damn good - but I gotta win, I hate being the first loser ;)
I run 120-160 miles a week, race every weekend, I haven't run less than a marathon distance each week in training in so many months I can't remember. I win races to the point it's getting a little boring... seriously, can't some other people start eating a fruitarian diet so I can get some fair competition! ;)
Before my fruitarian diet I was injured all the time and never got through a season without getting sick too.
Now after a few years as a fruitarian all these naysayers are starting to eat more fruit - lol.
Next up for me...a bunch of big profile 100mile races. I guess I'll find out if this diet works at distances over 100k soon enough...
I'm blowin my own horn here just to give you guys some proof that this way of life/diet - ain't no joke! STICK WITH IT!
