1) Katie how can we be both eco-friendly and optimize for sports?

  • See https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-46865204  I’m really curious whether/how these recommendations work for athletic diets.  * In general, how can athletes minimize their environmental impact? Biking instead of driving is easy, but are we negating it all when we fly around the world to race? Or all the gel wrappers?
  • pro-tested, pros closet, thred-up for 2nd hand gear, buy used bikes
  • carpool to races/race local — why do we obsess over the big races like Leadville when locally, there are options that will likely be more fun!

*LINK TO MOLLYS ETHICAL EATING PIECE IN OUTSIDE—we buy the whole side of beef. full cow, for example. grow your own, even in an apartment, w stuff like cilantro, tomatoes; buy seasonal

2) Erica Asks about Bone Density

Studies

3) I’m targeting a hilly race in July and am relatively new to training, should I be focusing on climbing?

 – shifting
 – standing
 – speed and coordination – become a great cyclist in your ‘base’. Can specialize as race approaches a bit more

4) Sleeping less than six hours a night may increase cardiovascular risk

0) One thing – what are we liking???

    = peter sardines for lunch!
    = molly – everday spice mix from trader joes

1) Keto

  •  protein needs to be low
  • not shown to improve performance
  • should get help as it is a large change and many tripping points
  • worth trying whole foods and lower carb/sugar/ processed if not doing so already … easy endurance also showed to greatly increase fat utilization (ala zone 1/2 or maf-training)
“Ways to incorporate exercise when working long hours in a city—new job hitting me hard!” from Caitlin
  • walk
  • weekend warrior
  • gym at work ,
  • run commute
  • bike share
  • stairs
  • having ideal indoor setup/clothes ready to go

Fatigue vs laziness?

  •    if slow in training and breathing is not come up ‘breathless legs ‘ – make sure eating/sleeping and having variation in training intensity/duration
  • if training a lot then you aren’t lazy but may need to redistribute training time/focus and/or eat more around training.
  • if doing the same thing every day that is not effective
  • if doing the same training for a long time (months) that is not effective
  • if motivation low then rest and reassess!

What saddle do you use?

If I miss a day, should I make it up?

 – if you miss it due to stress then skip it and move on. If miss it and will be really ready the next day (for real) then do it but watch running a bunch of hard days together.
 – no make-ups is a good rule of thumb that eliminates choice!

Myth: Lose X pounds, replace with ‘big salad for lunch instead of fast food’

Myth: Go Paleo/keto/etc. Jan 1, replace with ‘start eating more vegetables and cutting back on processed food’

Myth: Do a juice cleanse for January, replace with ‘drink 2 more glasses of water and add an extra vegetable to every meal’

Myth: Dry January, replace with ‘Cut back on weekly alcohol intake to X drinks’ (vs. making sweeping change for 1 month and binging in Feb)

solo vs team?
competition?/distance? adidas?
emotional

conservative racing = being in shape!

Jonathan Levitt is a runner from Boston, MA who grew up hating running. Playing baseball and hockey, running was always the punishment, not the reward. After deciding to run a marathon after watching the 2013 Boston Marathon, now it’s the other way around! Jonathan works at InsideTracker (link: insidetracker.com/endurance) and loves to travel, which usually ends up being a good mix of both work and play!
