Slow start to the blog this year, but how are all your New Year resolutions coming along?
I wanted to make 2020 an even bigger year for running, and I felt like the next best step I could make was to really get a handle on my nutrition.
But this is more than just about keeping the fat off. I wanted to make sure I ate things that kept my metabolism active, helped speed up my recovery time between runs, and help power my running strength.
One of the things I wanted to start looking at is my protein intake.
I’ve heard a lot about turning to a plant-based diet, with plenty of my fellow runner friends raving about the benefits of veganism.
What I really want to do though is really hone in on my protein intake, so I’m parking non-meat for a while.
I want to focus on a good amount of white meat and fish, and I thought one of the best (and fun!) ways I could do this is to get a grill.
I know we’re still a ways off summer right now, but with sales popping up here and there, it felt like a good time to get my grilling setup nailed down so that I’m ready for grilling season to hit in May!
I didn’t really know what to get, but I settled on a built in gas grill. Sure, these are pretty high-end, but we’ve been renovating the patio anyway so we decided to go all in on an outdoor barbecue kitchen!
I can’t wait to get going with it. It’s a Napoleon LEX and looks pretty powerful, but should be idiot-proof enough for someone like me to get to grips with.
Will keep you guys posted!
