My Comment To Leana

Hi,
I do a lot of fruits. I squeeze my own OJ out of oranges in the morning and for supper. Takes 6 to make 500cc, that’s pretty energy dense.

I’ve almost gone off cooked food, and I’m sticking to a raw food diet. No breads, no pasta, no rice.

I munch on veggies, ham, fruits during the day. I’m currently exploring nuts and dried fruits as well to add to my diet.

I drink fruit smoothies, papaya blended with milk, mango blended with milk, or store bought OJ blended in with nectarines.

That works pretty well for me.

I’m not a food nazi though, I don’t stop myself from eating out from time to time. Only I stick to wraps, salads and other healthier stuff.

I’ve done the change in diet over a period of months, so I haven’t had any real problems.

I do eat meat, eggs and a little dairy. Red tuna sashimi is one of my faves, as well as grilled salmon.

I used to cook giant portions that would last me the week, but after switching diets, it’s no longer an option. I threw them out. So now, it’s very small portions.

Day Off

Today is my first day off in quite a while, if I don’t include Sundays. I don’t even have any errands to run. I did all of my errands yesterday. I might pick up some red tuna today though.

The weather is beautiful (35C) and today is the day of my big run. I’ve rested for the last two days so that I can actually run for over an hour. I’m hoping to run something between 15-20km. That’s something between 23 and 30 laps of my 650m track. I’ll be heading out at around 7PM, after sundown.

I’m kind of excited about it. I didn’t mind not running last night, although I was itching to go. However, my ankle felt sore and my knee needed the rest.

I’ve added a few more training blogs to my feed reader to motivate me. I really enjoy reading. Heather is a fast runner who just completed the Boston marathon and just ran 66.5 miles last week. Diane just completed a 10K race on the weekend. Courntey got a clean bill of health from her doctors. Leana had company on a 10 mile jog this weekend.

Runner Leana

One of the ways I keep motivated during my training, is to read the blogs of runners. I really enjoy Leana’s blog. She’s an awesome athlete and well into her way to prepare for a marathon in Quebec City, Le Marathon des Deux Rives.
