Meals + Miles: Swim Focus Day

FullSizeRender.jpg

Welcome to Meals + Miles. In these blog posts, we'll tell you about the workouts we do in a day and the exact foods that fuel them. Sometimes we have a plan for what we're going to eat and other times we go for whatever's in the larder. 

Here's how yesterday looked. Keep in mind, I'm training for a half ironman against the leanest, fastest triathletes in the world. If I want to be competitive, three workouts a day is the norm. --Bec
