As I write this blog, I am listening to (and kind of watching) the movie ”Chariots of Fire!” For as many times as I have watched it, I am still inspired by the pure determination and sacrifice of these runners! Have you seen this movie? If not, it is a “must see” for any of you determined to exceed your personal best!
Speaking of personal best, I am determined to exceed mine, by becoming metabolically efficient! I am working with Dina Griffin MS, RD, CSSD, sports dietitian extraordinaire!
Check out the website Fuel4mance to see the work of Bob Seebahor and Dina Griffin.
I began with Dina last Friday with learning the basics and creating a plan with her. There are specific foods to eat for different “cycles” of training. I am in the Preparatory cycle and so I am making different food type choices than when I am in the Competition, Taper or Transition cycle.
The bottom line of this plan is to train your body to “burn more fat and conserve precious carbohydrate stores while reducing the likelihood of GI distress.” Bob Seebohar; Metabolic Efficiency Training.
I am soooo excited to be working with Dina and learning how to become more Metabolic Efficient!!!
Stay tuned as I track my progress in this new endeavor.
Better yet, join me in it!
