Last night’s open skate was good. Two of my teammates were there so we worked on speed and sprinting starts. We did 25 laps (I did mine in 5:13) and I also did two sets of 5 laps in 1:00. My technique is improving! I think the running, pull-ups, and kettlebells are helping.
I start my new diet today. I say diet, but I’m hoping it will become my lifestyle for about 90 percent of my meals. It’s basically salads, cooked and raw veggies, one serving of oatmeal, one serving of beans, and fruit. I’m still having coffee with soymilk (but no sugar.) I’m doing a weight-loss version for as long as I can stand it. If I lose energy, I’ll add more carbs.
