I started a 90-Day Fitness Challenge on October 1st with an online friend. I am also doing the October Unprocessed Challenge hosted by Eating Rules. (see button in right sidebar). Basically it's eating nothing but what you could make from raw ingredients in your kitchen. (To find a complete discussion of what is allowed for the challenge, please visit one of the above links.) I am allowing myself two exceptions to this challenge.
1) I have one half-marathon race left mid-month and am going to use gels and sport drinks for that race. I know they work for me and they are available at the aid stations.
2) Milk. The challenge defines homogenized milk as off-limits. If I had a source to get raw organic milk that I could pasteurize at home, I would. But since it's illegal to sell raw milk in Minnesota, I don't see that happening anytime soon. Until that changes, I will continue to buy the homogenized milk from the grocery store.
I am excited to be part of these challenges. I only have one more race planned this year and was wondering what I was going to do to keep myself motivated.
On another note, I find myself with a plane ticket and no event to attend. I can change my ticket, but I don't know where to go or what to do. It's on Sun Country so I'm limited in destinations (I can't believe they don't fly to Denver! WTH? They used to!) I need an idea for a good getaway that I can do on my own. Something triathlon related that isn't super expensive would be awesome. Anyone got any suggestions?
