ll foods are not created equal. Some foods are simply not good for you and I talk enough about them: principally sugar, foods that act like sugar and processed foods (see my book Sugarettes), but let’s talk about those foods that are not just good for you, but are the foods have the ability to change the course of your life and pack outstanding health benefits. You want to include as many of these disease busting power foods into your diet as possible.

My goal going into Monday’s Boston Marathon was to run 2:35. I ran 3:18. That’s a spectacular failure. Either my goal was absurdly unrealistic or something really major must have gone wrong, right? Wrong. As the Good Book says, sometimes “the small foxes spoil the vine.” MORE

Since Tuesday's workout was 400s, I thought I'd include one of my favorite videos. It's kind of a tortoise/hare thing. I also laugh that Jessica uses the low pullup bar even though she's several inches taller than Dutch.
FWIW, my time on this workout was around 12 or so minutes, plus I did the workout scaled with jumping pullups. I'm going to try it again once I can string together a few kipping pullups (and if my arm ever heals!!)

The 113th Boston Marathon produced an Ethiopian and a Kenyan champion, with Deriba Merga claiming the men's title in 2:08:42, and Salina Kosgei winning a slow women's race in 2:32:16. The initial analysis is in the post below this one (you can scroll down either on the page or your email to see it), but I'm going to repeat the same tables here, for a complete "one-stop" overview of the race. That's followed by some discussiong points from the race.

If you’ve read the paper or watched the news in the last decade, you probably know these have been the source of much controversy. The pros, of course, are the ease of cooking and clean-up. Nothing sticks to the best of these, and that’s why they’re so popular in homes and restaurants. Nonetheless, there are major negatives. Whether it’s the original Teflon brand or another version of non-stick finish, that magic coating can come with a price. The issue? A nasty chemical known as PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid) that has been linked to tumors, blood lipid changes, liver damage, hormone imbalance, reproductive issues, and other health issues.READ MORE

There are quite a few mentions of ACV used throughout history as a medicinal tonic. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, is said to have had two remedies: honey and apple cider vinegar. Supposedly, samurais used it for strength and power, always a good idea when killing is your profession. And US Civil War soldiers used it to treat ailments like pneumonia and scurvy, along with gastric upset. READ MORE

Translucent coconut water-- gleaned from young coconuts before they have developed "milk"--has been used as an IV fluid in rural tropical areas because it possesses a very similar electrolyte profile to blood. Now it's been dubbed "nature's sports drink" because of this electrolyte advantage, which includes more potassium than a banana and most man-made sport drinks--and is lower in sugar and calories. Slightly tangy, coconut water provides a refreshing way to rehydrate following a run. Now available in handy eco-friendly cartons at many health food stores, you don't have to hop on a flight to the tropics to get your fix. $2 for 11-ounce carton, zico.com
I found them at Market Basket in the Brazilian food section.
1.59 for 11oz carton
ingredents- natural coconut water

I havn't tried it yet but I will let you know.....
