How I Shaved 3 Minutes off my 10 Milers Without Even Trying

Last summer, I reached my goal of running a 10 miler once a week with 3-5 milers on my other run days. I did so with much effort and to be quite honest my 10 mile pace was pathetically slow. After my long runs, I would “treat” myself to beer and pizza. It would take me a full day and a half to recover from my long run and I would still be a little stiff on my subsequent run.

This summer, I’m running 10 milers 3 minutes faster than last summer and I’m running 5-7 miles on my light days!!! I am no longer plagued by the nuisances of last summer’s long runs. No sluggish running pace, no more pizza cravings, and no more bent-over-elderly-man-with-a-secret-knife-and-flask-cane exhaustion.

What is my secret? What have I changed?

I no longer defileth my body. I’m eating REAL food, recovering faster, and I’ve lost fat and built lean muscle. I gobble as many fresh fruits and vegetables as I care to eat throughout the day. For dinner, I enjoy brown rice and beans with assorted vegetables or quinoa or sweet potatoes or some other homemade vegan dish.

BTW, I DO take 3 KEY SUPPLEMENTS (not present in a vegan diet):

  • B-12 (Everyone, vegan or not, should take b-12)
  • Vitamin D (I use in for the gray cloudy days in Oregon)
  • DHA (Dr. Bernard recommends it in Power Foods for the Brain)

The results are amazing. I no longer crave junk food. My hair, teeth, and skin are radiant. I have more energy and my recovery for running is absolutely fantastic. I feel twenty years younger! I’m in better shape now than when I was 18. Best of all, I haven’t lost any muscle. I have been eating this way since Christmas.

What’s the Big Vegan Lie? Secret Meal Finally Exposed


Yes, I have a twisted sense of humor. But I’m tired of reading all of the BS about the deficiencies of a Vegan diet.
[alert_red] Transcript:[/alert_red]
The vegan community was hiding this from the carnivores.
About once a week, they would eat STEAK.
And they would say, “Don’t tell anyone. No one can know that we eat steak because our vegan diet fails us. It doesn’t give us all the nutrients. So once a week, we have to eat steak in secret. Just to keep up the facade; so that everyone thinks that our vegan diet works.”
And I said, “That’s not right. We can live on just fruits and vegetables. We don’t need meat!”
And they said,

“No! You shut up! YOU MUST EAT MEAT ONCE A WEEK IF YOU WANT TO BE A TRUE VEGAN.” And I said, “No! I don’t want to eat red meat. It’s not healthy.”

And they said, “If you don’t eat red meat once a week, then you WILL HAVE TO EAT THE MEAT OF MEAT. The meat that is the REAL MEAT.”
And I said, “What do you mean by, ‘ The eat that is the REAL meat? What is the meat of meat?” And they were quiet, and they wouldn’t answer me. Every time I asked them, they would change the subject. And then, Jannie spoke out. And she went missing.
And I said, “Where is Jannie?” And they said, “she is not longer with the Vegan Community.”
And I said, “Why is she no longer with the community?”
And they said, “She told everyone that we eat meat on the weekends because our diet is insufficient. And so now she’s not with us.”
And I said, “Well I don’t want to eat meat either.”
And they said, “Well now that she’s not with us, you can try the meat that is the real meat, the meat of meat.”
And I said, “I don’t understand. I don’t want to eat meat.
And they held out a strangely shaped piece of meat that had a very unusual aroma about it. And scarred [scorched] on the piece of meat was a piece of Jannie’s sock. And that was when I decided that I had to speak out.

BTW, I loved Jannie very much–she was DELICIOUS!

Are You Peeling Away Your Health?

Come here. I’ve got something for you.

Come here, I got something for you. (Annoying Gif I made with a FREE Gif app and Amazon Prime. Clip is from the hit movie: The Firm.)

Have you ever gotten citric acid on a cut near your fingernail?

It’s a ferocious drop of agony, isn’t it? There are worst agonies to be endured from citrus abuse. (See: Amazing Orange Facts Below.)

Most orange peelers use a knife to cut towards the thumb, like a stupid mafia boss in a bad gangster movie. The result? A sliced thumb and a long strip or two of orange-peel. Worst of all the orange meat is covered with thick white coat of rind, which steals flavor from the juicy meat.

Add this method to your arsenal of orange peeling knowledge.

How to Peel and Orange efficiently.

I love the simplicity of this peel. It makes even easier to toss orange segments into smoothies; thereby, increasing recovery time from REPEATING GIF ANIMATION INDUCED SEIZURES.

Amazing Orange Facts

  • Pectin,a key component of orange fiber, protects the mucous membrane of the colon by reducing exposure to toxic substances; it also binds to and evacuates cancer-causing chemicals in the colon.
    eating oranges also reduces bad blood cholesterol levels.
  • The spray of orange zest from the orange peel is highly flammable. Ernest Hemingway
    used to entertain himself with citrus peel fireworks as he chomped on roasted chestnuts in front of a warm Parisian fire.
  • Oranges are full of phyto-nutrients such as caringenin, a powerful antioxidant, free radical assasin, anti-inflammatory agent, and immune system booster.
  • Spanariads used oranges to punish criminals and the like. The term, anaranjear, means, literally, to “orangicate” – to pelt something with oranges. Oranges are heavy and soft. Ouch! WTF? Spaniards like to throw fruit, first oranges and to this day tomatoes.

May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you escape being pelted with oranges and just enjoy their delicious flavor instead and also live with ease.

Hypermnesia is a heighten exact or vivid MEMORY. I totally misused that term!!!!! OOPS.

I said there were two drawbacks, but mentioned three. The last one wasn’t really a drawback, it was not eating enough bananas. But I still called it “the second one.”
