Another glorious evening in paradise! mid 60's w/ a very (very) light rain- perfect running weather (again!)- I did the same 7.5 loop just in reverse. I thought this way might be a little quicker, but it's not- not longer either- finished within two minute of my time yesterday

Still at the various 3-4x5 and in the gym most days. Also averaging between 6-7mile jog/walks 4-5days per week. 6.05 today on the fitbit.

Good to see you battue!

It was "ride our age" day with my buddy, we do it every year, so a 52 mile ride. Left IT band went out @ mile 38 or so. Owwww. Well dammit that's why God gave us two legs. Right IT band started barking at mile 42. The last ten miles were about agony management, not so much getting a workout... but I made it home w/o making the Call of Shame so I'll call it a win.

Thank you. Impressive load of wood you stacked.

Went on an intermittent fasting regimen. Nothing after 8 pm until 12-1pm the next day. Then eat pretty much what you want. The energy level is getting a little scary. Reflux has disappeared.

The stacking is the easy part! smile But thanks. Every year for 25 years now. Someday, archeologists will be like, the skeleton indicates this primate swung a heavy axe-like object a LOT! smile

Hopefully, my beer gut doesn't fossilize.

I apologize for missing it (if I did)..... are you battling something, battue?

No doubt. Hard on the truck springs also.

The key to a beer gut is never get one. Have only seen a few that made one go away

Yea, time and he keeps keeping back up. Frustrating.

Hmm, is there a theory behind that, as far as how/why the energy level goes up?

For years now have tracked my rough daily calorie consumption on My Fitness Pal. On doing so with the Intermittent Fasting I have found my carbohydrates are now usually around 80/day vs the 200/day previously. I'm guessing it has changed my eating more towards the ketogenic diet. I have always been big on milk and bread, but have eliminated milk and cut back large on the bread. Now if I can get some good French bread, I'm going for it. That in the plastic wrap someone else can have.

"3. Have more energy

You know the scenario: You grab that sugary, caffeinated pick-me-up, you feel great for about 30 minutes, and then, bam… You want to lay your head on your desk and pray 5 p.m. rolls around soon. A high-carbohydrate diet spins your energy all over the place, and that blood sugar roller coaster crashes really hard. But a ketogenic diet steadies blood sugar levels, providing slow, sustained all-day energy so you're focused, energized, and fulfilled. Research has shown that mitochondria—those little power plants within your cells—actually prefer ketones as fuel. Ketones significantly decrease free radical damage, protecting your mitochondria. Ketones can even help create new mitochondria, optimizing energy levels in the bargain."



I do cheat some in the AM. I have a mixed Whey Protein drink which is around 90 calories and a Branched Chain Amino Acid mix which is 5 calories. This gives me an AM start on 5 glasses of water. Knee and back inflammation levels also seem to have improved.


Addition: Total daily calories have also decreased. The stomach must have downsized and you eat less to fill up.

I understand the benefits of cutting back carbs, I was more interested in the fasting aspect of it. Did you do both (cut back on carbs and intermittent fast) at the same time?

Daily carb consumption was reduced by what I ate with Intermittent Fasting. So, yes with the way I ate I did both at the same time. If I ran down to Dunkin Donuts at 1 pm I'm sure the results would obviously be different.

There are 14-16 hours out of the day where I have no chance of eating the wrong foods. Makes things easier.

Just got back from an overnighter in the Big Belts for a little early fishing- had to buck a lot of snow, but fortunately the lakes I wanted to hit were open (or at least mostly open). Saw some deer & elk on the way in (and out), couple of mountain goats above the upper lake, several blue grouse and most importantly caught a dozen or so eager cutthroat w/ my Tenkara rod laugh

About 18 miles total, with several thousand feet gain/loss. Came home famished and consumed a large stack of buttermilk pancakes, bacon and eggs- life is good!

The first time you hear "getting old ain't for sissies!" it's kinda funny. As the decades roll by, not so much. Sounds like you are taking on some metabolic issues head-on; that's awesome and must be quite difficult.... uh... at your age.

(I just sorta put myself in the position where there was no other way to finish that sentence!) grin

No big deal, it's not that difficult. Hope you are doing as well when the DL reads the same. You'll be lucky, worked at it and blessed if you are. grin

Quick question: anyone got IT band tips beyond the foam roller?

This is getting not-ok.

Me too! smile

It's a be-atch. If you've never had it, the pain occurs on the outside of the knee, and around the back, and once it starts it seems like there's nothing to be done about it.... then after feeling like a major injury, a day or two later NOTHING! No swelling, no pain... just gone.

Found some supposed stretches but I'm skeptical. They don't seem to actually "get to" that area. Very difficult area to stretch. Guess I'll continue to research, and roll the crap out of it on the foam roller in the meantime. As long as I keep my rides under 30 miles it seems to not be an issue.... but....

Maybe I'll ask on the cycling forum.

is your foam roller a firm one? I had one that turned out to be a little too soft; my current one is quite firm and has little nubs in the foam to even add more to the "pleasure" laugh

Runs on pause for shin-splint/muscle issues in my left lower leg. Talked to a buddy who's a PT who made some suggestions.....nothing serious wrong with the leg, but have to take care of it.

Been on my bike more....13 mile ride on Sunday....doesn't sound far, but got 1100' of climb, which was a good workout. Severe storms here yesterday, so I did a 45 min indoor trainer workout with my bike focusing on cadence. Indoor cadence workouts are fun....usually leaves a pretty good puddle of sweat under the bike when I'm done.

Heart rate is showing great improvements, both while working out and at rest. Need to manage the leg issue and get back in the saddle on the running. I think I can hike through it, as it's running specifically that is the problem.

Yes, here's what I do--select a good-looking 20-something therapist and go let her massage your legs once or twice a week.

That way, even if it doesn't solve the problem, you don't care.

Seriously though, get a good PT to show you a few stretches.

PS, I learned from the master--Battue.
