I just returned from doing Santa Rosa 70.3.
We all have areas of weakness, or what I like to refer to as: “Something I don’t do very well.”
I don’t do well in cold – water or air. And Santa Rosa was a real challenge in both areas.
The good news about this weakness is that there’s a counterbalance. I handle heat and humidity better than many. But I digress – this weekend was not about heat and humidity.
Entering the water, I looked like the Michelin Man. I had as many layers under my wetsuit and on my head as was possible. I set a new PR in T1 – for slow. With frozen hands, it took nearly twelve minutes to peel off all the layers and put on new layers to start the bike, which started with a bone-chilling three mile downhill.
It was a beautiful ride, which helped take my mind off the chilly winds and by T2, I was warmed up and ready to run.
I crossed the finish line in 6:23 which won the age group and, considering the unusually long transition times, I was happy with that.
As always, it was Perfect Amino that helped my day. It starts during training, where I use it before and after every workout. And on race day, regardless of challenges presented, I have confidence, knowing I’m strong and prepared.
Yes, about 90% of what most of us consider as body fat is made by and from sugar.
But probably not how you think.
And it has a lot more to do with the type of sugar it is and, more specifically, how it affects your hormones (messenger chemicals that tell your body how to use the food you put into it).
Because it’s your hormones that will determine what will ultimately happen with this sugar and whether or not it will be used to make new body fat.
Let me assure you, this is not another low carb rant!
