Sprint Training: Straight Up Fat Burning

Yesterday was a pretty good up day.  I had plenty of energy, ate quite a few good meals, and ended the day with a nice sized scoop of coconut cookie ice cream.  Perhaps the best part of the day was my morning exercise session.  After my wife left for school I put on my running shoes, grabbed my stop watch and some water and headed outside.  I got through 20 minutes of sprint training (not including warm-up and cool-down).  I did about 10-20 seconds of sprinting with about 40-60 seconds of rest in between (rest was dictated by how long it took my pulse to fall back below 130bpm).

My nutritional intake for the day:

  • Pre-workout: Protein shake and apple
  • Breakfast: 4 eggs and whole wheat toast with jam
  • Snack: Protein Shake
  • Lunch: Steak and greens
  • Snack: Walnuts, shredded coconut, and 70% dark chocolate
  • Dinner: Grilled chicken, chickpeas, and pasta with garlic olive oil sauce
  • Snack: Coconut cookie ice cream

    You obviously have a healthy diet. Funny how people used to think coconuts and coconut oil was bad because of the saturated fat, but, it turns out to be a healthy fat completely different from the saturated fat found in animals.
