Ethnic restaurants are probably a fairly safe bet, because the menus offer dishes from generations of people who obviously survived on that diet. Mexican restaurants are great because you can order side dishes of rice, beans, and corn tortillas. (Note: you may have a choice between corn and wheat tortillas. ) This makes an absolutely scrumptious meal and you’ll be amazed at how inexpensively you can eat, too! Chinese and Japanese restaurants already serve fairly healthy dishes. Just go for the soba (buckwheat) noodles and vegetables.
This entailed a start, with its accompanying chest and leg pains; the middle, with its backing off enough so I could stand the pain; and the end where the finish line was in sight. That was a major discovery for me, as I suspect it was for most others who were just venturing into triathlons in the early days where there were no “experts” to turn to and no texts to consult. Then there was the matter of increasing the distances. In Hawaii, where I live, the shortest triathlon bike leg at that time was twentyfive miles.
After I changed my diet and saw firsthand the very positive result, I wondered what other beliefs I might have that are so firmly entrenched that I dare not question them. What about the people who think if “x” quantity is good, then “2x” will be twice as good, and “3x” will be three times as good? If I ran my best race on forty miles a week of running, just think what could do with eighty miles a week, the logic goes. And there are people who, incredibly, run 120 miles a week or more. The problem comes when some of us try to increase our training mileage to these levels and are rewarded only with injury.
