I am recommending a highly informative site on nutrition and food supplements that I have just come across.

http://www.youngagain.com/index.html

I'll second that! They had every supplement I've ever heard of and at least a couple hundred more Exclamation Obviously their selection kicks butt, have you ordered anything from them? How are their prices and customer service?

I've just ordered the Arthritis Arsenal and Glucosamine. I liked the formulation. There are cheaper Glucosamine supplements out there but youngagain.com offers free shipping on orders over $100. Plus 2 day priority mail. I should get my first order Fri or Sat. We'll see.

I am especially taken by all the info packed into this site. I've never seen all these test kits; everything from testosterone levels to cholesterol levels.

Hey Paul, where you been lately? I thought you would have chimed in on some of our other threads. I tried to reply to an e-mail you sent but I got a reply back that your address wasn't active...or something like that.

I've been reading the posts faithfully every day. The trivia posts have been amazing. I just don't have the stats knowledge to do that at this point. In many of the other posts my comments would have just mirrored what someone else had already said. I guess I have been pretty quiet over the past two weeks.

Training has been progressing, but slowly. I have had a few runs over a mile at a stretch, with 5.4 km being the longest training distance for one workout, broken into segments. I had a 1000m interval in 4:14, but since that is the mile pace for the guy who ran the WR 100 miles...

4:14 for 1000 meter intervals, not bad at all, my top group of women run thier intervals in the 3:55-4:05 range and their better than most of the male roud racers out there so it sounds like your doing pretty good, keep on plugging away and you'll get back to 100% and then some before you know it.

Well, I did 4 x 1000 that day with a 2 min walk between. All of them were over 5 min except for the 3rd one which I "blasted" in 4:14. Rolling Eyes Surprised
But 3:55 for several 1000's is 6:30 mile pace which is really moving in my opinion!! Good group of athletes.
I am trying to put in 2 days of running with a rest day following. I think the breakout point will be when I can handle 4K without stopping.

Sounds like you are making good progress. Hang in there and you will be racing soon. Cool

Paul, good to hear you've still been watching over us during your self-enforced silence. Smile

Whoa, that's quite the cut down!

You're definitely running better than me right now...

I've never tried (or heard of) such a method, but I have a hard time accepting the merits of an approach that tries to make something like hydration so cut and dry. Hydration is basically a sufficient or insufficient, trial and error sort of thing. You can drink the exact same amount of water two different days and feel dehydrated one day and like a fire hydrant the next... Some days water goes straight through you, other days you can instantly feel it. The same could be said for food -- follow the generally acceptable guidelines and figure out what and when works best for you. Following someone else's strict rules is pointless.

Off to rinse my hands with 9.6 oz of water...

ellen, I beleive you just got your official welcome to run-down, experiencing a little of Dan's wit.

I actually have heard of using glycerol and water for rehydration, however never with much more scientificly used than normal water. In other words drink lots and when you have to go every 45 minutes or so you're good.

Here's a fairly long article about whey protein I got from nutros.com by Will Brink. http://www.nutros.com/Nutros/home/news/newsArticle.jsp?typeid=2&nid=109

Will Brink has his own site at brinkzone.com for those of you interested. I find some of the latest research on whey to be fascinating.

I also have another online supplement place to try: [url]VitaminShoppe.com/vip013[/url] They are having what looks like a pretty big sale through March 31 with free shipping over $50. Everything looks to be 40% off or more, so here's a chance to try some stuff you didn't want to fork over retail for. The VIP013 is the discount code.
