I really haven’t had a chance to get into the swing of the holidays yet. But if you’re up to full speed, here’s a good thing to know. Eating chocolate is actually good for your cycling. So don’t feel so guilty about popping a chunk of chocolate into you mouth every once in awhile.
This article says that chocolate actually improves athletic performance. How about that for good news?
I should have known this to be the case. My friend Gwen Jorgensen, Triathlete World Champion, is a chocolate fiend. She eats chocolate every morning. I just thought since she needed to consume so many calories, why not eat some chocolate. But she must have had inside information on this secret chocolate training.
I plan to stock up on the intake of chocolate the next couple weeks before cyclo-x Nationals. I’ll probably be racing 3 kilos heavy by then.
