First things first – HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANINE! Now, unlike a friend of yours who didn’t show up on her special birthday WOD, I sure hope you do. If not, I’m afraid I’ll have to release your address to everyone since you mentioned you wanted BURPEES on your special day!
We are in the midst of our ‘Athlete Series’ posts, and this is part 2. If you missed the initial one, check it out here. I find this one to be quite timely considering we are nearly halfway through our Summer Nutrition Challenge! Here is the second way to help see yourself as we do – as an athlete!
When food becomes fuel
When you program your meals and understand how they affect your performance, feelings, and capacity, and not just how it affects your urge at that one moment – you are an athlete. College teams have a “training table” where all the members of a particular team go to get their grub on. In many instances, these cafeterias are reserved solely for university athletes only. That’s a reflection of just how integrated your nutrition is to your athletic potential.
From all accounts I’ve heard since you started the challenge, you are past the “holy cow, I’m miserable and have no energy” stage. If you have followed our guidance, you should now be feeling good…maybe not GREAT (though many are), but not like last week. Keep at it and take note of how you feel while performing at the box.
Make your table a training table. Eat better and achieve more.
