[quote]leave now or in 4 hours [/quote] I'd start heading that way now. Roads are clear, and radar between the two looks fairly clear as well. The later you push, the closer we get to bumper to bumper. ...

[quote]Kidnap might be only option. [/quote] Depending on age, I would strongly consider it. We've had to kidnap all the old folks so far. In a twist of irony, my old man who orchestrated the plan is now trying to ride it out in Metairie while the rest of us get out of dodge. Leaving...

re: Vitamins/Supplements to Offset mRNA Spike Protein Potential Damage - DixonCider
I'm honestly just looking for clarity in all this. Is the spike protein causing damage/inflammation or is that currently debated as well? Had the virus, had the vaccine after, so I've got it regardless. I'm just curious at this point. I was hesitant towards the vaccine, and I'm still unsure a...

re: bicycle for trails - DixonCider
More dedicated cyclists would disagree with me, but if you're hitting dirt more than pavement, an entry level mountain bike is likely your best bet, with the caveat that it have 29" tires as opposed to the 27.5". I'll admit I haven't spent a ton of time riding a 29er, but my first spin on one I ...

Bay St. Louis tri is a fun one. Small race so you've got a better shot at placing for something, but the opposite of a cool event. Late July in south Mississippi is unforgiving. ...

[quote]Give me a reason why dairy is good for you.[/quote] Can you give me a reason, outside of your own frail gastrointestinal system, I'm harming myself with dairy?

re: Two Questions:How to handle cheat meal w/out losing as much progress and how to keep RMR H - DixonCider
For the cheat meal, just go enjoy. One meal won't be that big of a setback I eat everything in sight on the weekends and lose any ab definition, trim back calories on Monday, eat clean Monday through Friday, and can reliably see abs again by Friday evening before I trash it again. Raising rmr, li...

Summer Hydration Tips and Tricks - DixonCider
Looking for any and all advice on staying hydrated. Last summer all running was on a treadmill, and with the bulk of my training being outdoors now, staying hydrated seems like an impossible task. Current running load at 16-20mpw not exceeding 8 at a time, 4 day bro split lifting on top of that....

25 and had 3 ACL reconstructions. Current milage 15-18mpw. Peaked at about 30 before muscle imbalances and compensation led to a hip injury. August begins formal marathon training. Every medical professional I've spoken to has just said do what you want with it until such time it hurts too m...

re: Patellar tendon severed and recovery post surgery - DixonCider
If I remember correctly and I likely don't, vitamin E at one point was one of the supplements. As far as exercise regimens, it's really all mobility work and stretching. Mobilizing the patella (sliding your kneecap with your fingers) was something that was a regular part of my PT and recovery. ...

re: Patellar tendon severed and recovery post surgery - DixonCider
Some of it may just be that you'll always be stiff. I had patellar graft taken for my 3rd ACL reconstruction and even 11 years later, I have some stiffness. Alot of it for me is/was scar tissue. Super painful to break up when it's sat for several years, but there's supplements and exercise proto...

re: Knees - DixonCider
I've had my knees repaired more times than I care to admit to and I am and have always been overweight so at 25 I've got 60 year old man knees. If it continues, some of the biggest relief I've gotten have come from incorporating tumeric into my supplement regimen, as well as creatine. I also...
