Downhill traffic yields to uphill traffic. Reminder #2 on this very official list. Pay close attention to Reminder #5 , which I would’ve entitled, “Use Your Fucking Headphones”.
Saturday, August 9, 2014 – Summit Challenge Training Hike #1:
South Mountain – Holbert Trail to Dobbins Lookout +/- 4 miles in length, +1200 ft
Hiked with my lovely and awesome friend, Jennifer K. this morning. She and I are participating in the Phoenix Summit Challenge 7 in November. We’re gonna need a team name and costumes and are open to suggestions and sponsorship.
All parts felt good, though once I got home and out of the car I felt a little fatigue in my right glute/hammie region. I wouldn’t say “pain”… let’s call it “tightness”.
On the nutrition front, a couple of my favorite podcasts, the Balanced Bites Podcast and the Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness Podcast, have been talking ketogenic diets and nutritional ketosis. I took a lot of notes and had a few “what!?!” moments, in particular, looking at your triglycerides to optimize your carb intake. I’ve been meaning to get some blood work done and all this talk I am hearing on Vitamin D, low testosterone levels in us ladies, and ketosis has me pretty amped to finally get after it. (Yes, amped.)
