With that, here are my post-challenge learnings. I don’t have three. I really have one, in three parts, and it’s really this: much like a long, grinding WOD, nutrition is purely mental. 1.a: It’s all mind control. We talk a lot about short-term pain for long-term gain, so 1.b is: it’s the individual moments in time – when the ice cream comes out or when it’s time to choose wine or water – that tested me most. I found that I could say no to these things and, surprise, I didn’t die. And, once the gains started coming – feeling and looking better, a big PR on Surfer on Acid – the power of positive reinforcement turned out to be a powerful force indeed. Finally, 1.c: Paleo Challenge planning is the mother of successful execution. It was always too easy to take the quick fix of a sandwich or whatever while trying to get the kids ready for school. I found that having the right food on hand made it just as easy to throw a bunch of real food together and it tasted just as good or better. That’s probably the biggest takeaway for me. Results: 2.75in off the middle 4.5lb less on the scale 4.4% body fat gone = 7lb of fat off / 2lb muscle gain 1:29 pr on Surfer on Acid Reply Cheryl on June 4, 2014 at 11:30 am Wow, great results Joe.

Um, when I mapped out my run by work, I didn’t really understand the route, apparently. The second .75 miles of the tempo portion were ALL UPHILL. Oof. Was a bit slow but made it.
