Zombie attack and hydration

I would have written yesterday, but there was a zombie attack.  Thank goodness these guidelines were posted in the hallway.

It was only a Class 1 attack.

Other than the zombies, yesterday was fairly uneventful.  More teaching, more acclimatization.  I was up to 94% this morning.  I stumbled upon Dr. Noakes new book Waterlogged: The Serious Problem of Overhydration in Endurance Sports.  Wow!!!  You should read this one.  I got sucked into the chapter on the history of the development of Gatorade.  Wow!!  I’ll write more when things slow down here a bit, but it’s definitely had an impact on my thoughts on race nutrition.

PS. I ran around Turquoise Lake again this morning.  I’m going to have to venture on some actual hills tonight.

    Oh geez, now I have to buy another book! It’ll be my reading on the commute to school.
    haha I’m a zombie movie freak, that’s too awesome.
    And wow that’s beautiful!

      I haven’t torn through a book like that in a long time.  I’m looking forward to going back and reading it slowly now.  No zombies today besides me because I stayed up late.  :)

      That’s what I was thinking too Erin.  It’ll be neat to figure out together.
