Good video on the science of what you should eat to drop weight.

tldw - cut out processed foods

be happy I just saved you 12 minutes

oh and a macro ratio of 50/20/30 (carbs/protein/fat) and fast 2x/wk

You know some people might want to understand some of the why.

yeah you're right, it is a good listen.  i've been in a bad head space lately and I shouldn't be jumping on stuff like this, sorry.

Squat 365/5

Run 10km sub 50 min (ideally sub 45)

Do full No Quarter climb sub 45 min (ideally sub 40)

All in the same week before mid May

Anybody else have any goals for 2020?

Following this plan...

2020 is almost done, any of you managed to achieve or come close to your goals? 

I am a few hundred km short of finally reaching 5000km on bikes this year - for the first time ever, despite still having a bad back which I do not really notice much. Original goal was to reach 5k at the end of December. 

I have been on a constant diet of almost daily drills and exercises to stay healthy since late February, a mix of Chinese movement and flexibility drills and martial arts movement patterning, sometimes a bit of light strength training thrown in.

Nice, inspirational stuff!

My secret goal that I started cracking on in January was to get on the top ten board for some Strava segment climbs. Been at it pretty hard, but holy fuck am I bad at it.

Actually eeked onto the list on a few, even if only temporarily. Holy hell is it an effort though. Way harder and scarier for me to commit to those levels of pain then to try for downhill times. 

I'm addicted now though.

The trick is to ride an XC bike basically. Some of those KOM's on climbs were done of fucking CX bikes!

Fitness goals went way out the window this year. A million miles off.
