IKSC Weekly Link Blast: January 16, 2020

I let myself get behind, so this one will be a little sooner than an actual week. Going to continue to get these up on Thursdays. Not going to stress if I get behind a day, but that day seems to be a slow fitness news day so it is a good recap.

This article is targeted to runners, but I think it applies equally to lots of other recreational sports.
Why Runners Should Weight Train

I don’t care if anyone necessarily “tests” their athleticism by measuring their times, but the 90 seconds to 2 minutes of max exertion on a rower is a great conditioning tool. One thing I like is that it never seems to get easy, and I don’t think that there is a huge skill component that is going to make it easier.
500m Rows

I supplement with 10,000iu per day of D3 in the winter and 5000iu in the summer, as well as making a point to get as much sunlight as possible. I use liquid gel caps. I don’t have a preferred brand. I usually just get what’s on sale at RiteAid. Can’t be sure about anything with supplements, but I know deficiency in this vitamin is an epidemic.
Vitamin D

Intermittent fasting is finally getting into the mainstream. I’ve been doing this since 2008, when I found The Warrior Diet by Ori Hofmekler, which kind of gave me “permission” to do what felt good, rather than what most sport nutrition sources recommended. In 2013 I made it a point to fast once per week for 24 hours. I don’t know if I really got much more out of it other than going several hours between meals every day. Currently, I eat my first meal about 2 p.m. every day and then eat dinner at about 9 or 10 at night, and then on weekends I usually just eat one big meal in the late afternoon or evening. It’s worked for me for the past few years.

Get out into the mountains this fall! This photo is of the S. Fork of Salmon River, about 12 miles north of Warm Lake.

Looks like what we do with the rower is catching on. I am toying with the idea of offering some class times that heavily emphasize the rower as a conditioning tool:

I go off and on with this. Nutrition strategy. The problem is it is really easy to cheat on and get away with it.
