Running with dairy and without
Tuesday, February 19, 2013
I had already figured out that yogurt, over a matter of several days, was gradually increasing my resting pulse again.
Yesterday I tried having just a generous amount of cream in my coffee. When I went for a run on the treadmill, only 3 miles, my average pace was only 4 mph.
So today I skipped the cream and had almond milk instead. My average pace for the same distance was 4.3 mph.
So unfortunately it looks like even A2 raw milk causes some inflammation in my body, not as much as milk products from the grocery store, but still quite significant. So I decided, once again, to go without dairy and stocked up on coconut yogurt.
I may give it several months this time and the try a small almount of cream again to see what happens.
I may try to do a long run over 11-12 miles either Wednesday or Thursday, depending on the weather.
Today I focused mostly on strength training where I am making fairly slow, but steady progress.
