My Superhuman Day Off

My #Superhuman Day Off

So I haven’t blogged in forever…..  I’ve really wanted to start a website about Diet, Fitness, and Health in General, but that has been put on hold.  Recently I have applied to go back to school part-time in order to get an Exercise Science Masters to do something in Sports Medicine which is something I am very passionate about.  I suppose it makes sense to get a degree in something that I spend a great deal of time doing between: exercising 8-12 hours a week, walking another 15-25 miles a week at work, cooking new (and some classic) foods that are both healthy and tasty, and in the last year really working on another aspect: RECOVERY.  Recovery has many aspects including: sleeping well, managing stressors, eating well(previously mentioned), and much much more.

I have been listening to the Ben Greenfield Fitness Podcast for over a year and utilized many of his diet, fitness, and other #biohack techniques.  Ben and Broc’s Podcast has inspired me to do many things as an endurance athlete so I can thrive as an endurance athlete and in life.  I have been hacking (no pun intended) through Ben’s great new book Beyond Training, continue to listen to his podcasts, and utilize Ben’s resources (which are getting spending by the way) #MarcPro #AmazonPrime……I am excited to listen to one of Ben’s presentations in June at Concordia University in St. Paul, where I applied for the Exercise Science Master’s Program.  In honor of Ben’s Superhuman way of life I thought I’d show you what a Superhuman approved day may look like……
