You Need Your Calories!
Something to keep in mind if you're training for an endurance event this season - you NEED calories!
Part of the reason why we train is to make ourselves look and feel better. However, you can't starve yourself! This is particularly true if you're planning for a marathon or triathlon.
If you're in serious training mode a for a fitness event, nutrition is important, but you can't deprive your body of necessary calories. Check out this post on the Runner Dude blog -- http://tinyurl.com/yk2hysg.
I'll be taking a few days off to enjoy Spring Break with family. Hopefully, there is good weather where you are! I'll be back at the end of the week.
This is a great summary of why calories are important to your body during periods of extended fitness training.
