Break Out Season

19 Jul


I’ve always have been curious about working with a dietitian, and not just any dietitian, but one that also workouts out and knows the technicality of losing fat while retaining strength. I’ve ready many books on diet but I wanted a diet that tailored to my lifestyle.

I’m planning ahead and want to be race ready for cyclocross season in September. I expect this to be my break out year and my fitness is not going to hold me back this time. My goal is to finish a race in the top 30 and to Cat up to Cat 3 mid season. It’s important to start the season with good finishes in order to secure staging in the front.

Between now and October, I’m going to drop to 160 pounds from 175 pounds. That’s why I’m teaming up with Renaissance Periodization and working 1 on 1 with a coach who writes up a 3-month diet plan based on my goals. I’m working with Paul Salter, The Nutrition Tactician.

Today was Day 2 and I’m getting use to the diet plan. Hardest part is meal prep and trying to mix up the menu so that I don’t get bored.

If you don’t have a plan, plan to fail!
