Here are some pictures from Carley and I's veggie collection from the Sudbury Farmers Market. They have a Coop program there that sells local produce. So if your in the area check it out.
Training has been super tough, but boo-who right? Muskoka is just around the corner so i have 3 weeks to stay super focused, i need to redeem myself from my 6 place finish at Calgary 70.3 with the poor swim/bike i had. The last couple weeks i have found myself lying on the couch by 7:00pm reading, here are a few books i have read and that i really have enjoyed.
1. Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan.
2. In Defense of food by Michael Pollan
3. The 100 Mile Diet by Alisa Smith and Jb McKinnon
4. What to eat by Marion Nestle
I have learned alot of valuable information from these books but i am not going to start replacing powerbar's/powergels during training for anything i might find while i am out riding or running on trails. However i will start to really pay attention to what i am eating and where it is coming from as i feel being an athlete is more than just putting in the work. I think the healthier we can become with all of the choices that we must make day to day the better off we will be.
If you have some time to do some reading the books are great and if you have a chance to have an apple from a local farmers market you will see the difference. The weird thing was all of the fruits/Veggies were cheaper than the grocery store!
