Coastal Race Productions 5k / Half Marathon Series is pretty cool. Oak Island is this weekend and then throughout the rest of the season there's Sunset Beach, Holden Beach, and Ocean Isle Beach.

http://coastalraceproductions.com/

I really want to do all four but Oak Island is at 7am. I don't know how they expect people who don't live in that immediate area to make that start time. I'd have to leave Raleigh at 4:30am to even have a shot at at that.

I hurt my leg doing a trail run on Halloween and have been pretty limited since. I need to ease back into normal 5ks and work back up to where I was. I like the coastal ones because I know they'll be flat

I love a good hike, but I don't see how YOU PEOPLE run those trails without breaking your neck.

I lost 10 lbs this month and kept it very simple.

I worked out ( mostly cardio and push-ups) 3-4 times a week , drank a ton of water, and completely quit cold turkey on the following four items, and only these 4.

Fries, Soda, Chips, and Candy.

I still drank sweet tea and ate fried foods like chicken a few times a week. I think dropping soda and fries was crucial.

Fries would be tough. Besides being delicious, they're really the only side option at a lot of places. Plus they're delectable.

I'm doing my second Ironman in October in Louisville... I'm raising money for the local Louisville community where we'll be racing.

If anyone feels generous and feels like donating towards the cause..

Starting black coffee this week. I only put in little half/half before, no sugar, but going to see if cutting out that little extra dairy makes a difference.

Been jogging on the elliptical around 20 minutes a night and doing come basic calisthenics reps for the past month or so. I try not to weigh myself too much but as of a couple weeks ago I had dropped 10 lbs since the beginning of the year.

I guess I'm curious about how I should escalate the workout as I adjust to the current schedule, mostly the cardio. Increase pace, or increase time? Both?

What's your goal - just weight loss or finishing some type of race?

What kind of difference do you expect it to make?

Whatever difference reducing lactose is supposed to make. I figured I'd finally have that six pack after a week or two.

Wait, you really expect cutting out a few daily grams of dairy to have any measurable effect on your health or body composition?

It is simply science... eliminating a few calories from your daily diet will have no measurable impact!

Having said that, if dairy really is bad for our health (I believe it is), then yes, of course it is better to eliminate it, but a few calories of it won't have a noticeable impact on body composition.

Right now just weight loss. I've played with the idea of giving myself a benchmark of a 5k to run, but I don't have any friends that're interested in that kind of thing

Has anyone heard of or attempted anything from the Wim Hof Method? I heard about it on a podcast and now I'm reading this book, "What Doesn't Kill Us" and trying some of the stuff out.

Really interesting ideas...the basics at least, some of the more outlandish claims I don't necessarily believe

Drinking black coffee is the quickest way to become a coffee snob. Not a fan of the Caribou mahogany I got at the store last week. Any coffee recommendations from other black coffee drinkers for an inexpensive blend? I normally pick up what's on sale at the grocery store between Caribou/Petes/Starbucks.

Peet's for goooood and inexpensive.

If you want to splurge, you should try Death Wish's Valhalla blend. Death Wish itself is too acidic...but go for Valhalla. I drink that every day.

Sprint Triathlon = Sprint Distance

Isn't such thing as a sprint ironman. An Ironman is typically defined as the triathlon consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and a 26.2 mile run.

If you're in RDU, there is the Raleigh 70.3 half ironman, but there are also a ton of races on the NC shore that give you a decent race, OBX does a great one in september, with three distance triathlons.

RE: Dairy, I've super reduced my dairy intake over the past 4 years. I would say I eat less than 1 serving of dairy a week. I've noticed a serious reduction in inflammatory and autoimmune issues over that time. Basically my eczema and some other issues cleared up and have stayed pretty much gone. That being said, I really haven't lost any weight or had any improvement in body composition because of that change. Like was said above, the small calorie reduction didn't do a whole lot, but I generally feel better.
