8 mile long run

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Yesterday's long run was fairly routine. It was a cool day and the temperature in the middle of the day was only in the low 70's.
I went on a bike trail, little elevation, smooth asphalt surface, light wind, running at an easy pace.
Total running time was 1:50.40, average pace 4.3 mph, average pulse 132
The half-marathon is coming closer and I still need to get faster, do a lot more hill work and do a lot more trail running. I have no clue if my body can be ready in 6 weeks but I'll try. If I can be much more consistent in staying low-carb and avoid eating too much fresh fruit it will be a lot easier so my body can stay in ketosis.
This morning I added cream instead of half-and half to my coffee. After my workout I'll have scrambled eggs with some greens in them.

    Please be very careful. Last time I spent time in ketosis years ago, I had hormonal problems and gave up an ovary. Can you manage with a balanced diet? I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST. PLEASE STAY SAFE. emoticon

    Nice job on your 8 miler. It sounds like you are making great progress towards your half-marathon later this year. As you have already heard, you are just about where you need to be to run your race. Let us know how it goes.

    8 miles - way to go! You will be perfectly prepared when it comes time for your half! The longest I ran before my half was 10 miles and you are practically there already! Awesome job on your 8-miler!

Wheat is great stuff!

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

You can make so many wonderful things with it:



A wheat straw house




Christmas ornaments




Kitty litter




animal bedding




a bag




a hat




wall board




pellets




place mats




wall paper

But one of the best ideas I saw at our local county fair: the local Wheat Growers Association made a wheat berry box (like a sandbox) for kids to play in. As the kids were playing in it occasionally you would hear one of the parents say: BUT DON'T EAT IT!
If they only knew how right they were. emoticon emoticon

    I wish we had more wheat fields in ND. Now so many other grains grown here too.

    When my cat developed allergies, I switched to SWheat litter. I got rid of it when ants showed up in my house and were carrying it out - yuck!!!

    LOL! This is great stuff!

Don't forget! Wheat makes a great place to house the spirit of your ancestors! (You'd have to Ukrainian to properly appreciate that....)

The sheaf is placed in the corner of the dining room, and remains there until New Year when it is taken out and burned."

    Wallboard? Really? I'm just now listening to JJ Virgin interviewing Mark Hyman and they're talking about gluten...

    I have the same reaction to bricks - good for building stuff, but not to eat

    I don't eat it, but I would love to be able to. I really miss big buttery yeast rolls. Unfortunately, wheat doesn't like me, not at all. It physically hurts to eat wheat, and I swell like I'm 5 months pregnant. I do wish I could eat it, but the pain is not worth the taste.

Keto-Adaptation - getting off a low-carb diet and back on - the result

Saturday, July 21, 2012

This is an interview with Dr. Steve Phinney: (scroll down to the video)

It answered a lot of questions for me.

    Too little time, too much to read/watch! I'll get to this one, though!

    Wow - that was really interesting! I currently check every few days with a ketostick but now I'm itching to get one of those monitors. Do you know if you can get them from a drug store or do they have to be ordered online? And anybody know the cost?

Thanks for posting!
