That's two nights before.
so the whole spaghetti-loading deal is now out the window. no wonder i can't break 15 minutes.
I'm with you. Redmeat is practically sin for most. But my body always feels very healthy & strong afterwards and for the next day. Who knows? Maybe our iron content (while not deficient) is on the low side and the steak addresses that. Meanwhile, spaghetti-loading just makes me feel bloated/heavy. I'd rather balance the proteins/carbs/fats for track/XC distances.
In high school, I always ate steak the night before races-- medium-rare filet mignon. There were a few times I'd eat a whole rack of babyback ribs at Charleston's. Mind you, I'm a 5'9"/115 lbs woman, but I bet I could outeat just about anybody, even the night before a race!:)
I am shocked it would be that low from what colleagues who have spent a lot of time in Japan tell me.
A steak at Outback in Osaka would be about $30
Man, gotta love the internet.
Looks like a 225 g filet would be about 26 USD.
My colleagues must be eating at more upscale places!!!
I stand corrected.
