TriTip #22

On Alcohol and Racing: There's nothing wrong with a little booze, or so I'm told. However, it would behoove you to remember that alcohol is a poison to your body. A beer once in a while after a hot, miserable training session is cool, refreshing, and even offers your body some carbohydrates. But as race day approaches, I would highly suggest cutting out alcohol all together. Not only is it a poison that disrupts your body's natural functions but it also is a ton of calories that even the most regimented athlete often forgets to account for.

Moderation, as always, is the key.
