I have decided to give intermittent fasting a try. The Bullet Proof Executive has a protocol for IF and his points seem to make sense. The interesting thing to me is that the window for eating is from 2:00pm to 8:00pm. I have never even been interested in IF until now, but after drinking the coffee for a week, I think I can skip my breakfast and my mid-morning snack. The real test is delaying lunch by about 2 hours.

Two of today’s rowing WODs are about stroke rating and the endurance rowing is about speed. I don’t think I have ever done a 1000 TT, but in looking through my logbook, my best time is 3:19 w/ 1:39 avg. That was in January when it wasn’t 110 degrees. I did improve my 500 PR with a 1:32.1 on Wednesday after a tough 12 min metcon, so we will see what happens.
