    I'm not a nutritionist either, but I think that excess sugar is way more problematic in the diet on average. I know that I operate way better with a bit more fat in the diet (I just switched from skim milk to whole a month or so ago and have not gained weight).

    Saturated fat is not the demon it has been made out to be in the past. The real demons are transfats/partially hydrogenated fats. During endurance activities sugar runs out quickly, then you burn fat. You probably had a continuous fuel suppply, and the planets were aligned correctly! I believe you should listen to your body. Haven't you noticed that when you do, you feel better?

    Go Norma Go! Awesome. And the off road is so much more pleasant isnt' it?

    Way to go Norma! I hear you about not pushing too hard or too fast. This is my problem as well, and I'm dealing with some retrenching right now to atone for pushing it too hard last weekend.

    What they said. The fats and protein in your drink were exactly the long-lasting fuel you needed. You're more in tune with your body than most people, so listen to your wisdom. Run, Norma, RUN!

    Well done!

    I'm so glad that you're back to running and that you're making sure to not become injured again.

    That drink sounds like the kind of fuel your body needs for those days you run.

    Well, I commented yesterday, but it disappeared. Maybe I didn't complete it. However, ...
    you inspired me to look for ingredients today and, to my surprise, I found the cocoa nibs which were unavailable last year. I also found the protein powder, even your brand. I think that's pretty amazing.
    You commented on the fat, but I don't think there is that much of it. And we do need it. Now I need to find out about the taste. Do you concoct your recipes or have you sources? I'll use you for inspiration. Thanks for your post.

    as to that 68 -70 degrees, partly cloudy, low humidity.. I'd just almost kill for some of that! xox
