Ginny Messina blog post on monitoring versus supplementing

This post by Ginny Messina, a vegan RD, is worth reading:

Her recommendations on vegan supplementation are not too different from my own and are certainly worth reading:

I have purchased her book (co-written with Jack Norris, RD) Vegan for Life: Everything You Need to Know to Be Healthy and Fit on a Plant-Based Diet, though I've only skimmed it so far. I have great respect for the nutritional expertise of both authors, so I am really looking forward to reading it.  When I do, I will be certain to post a review.

10/17: Running group (~3 miles) + drills at TSD.  Difficult as always, but I took a bigger water bottle and think that helped. 1200 meters in 7:51.  Last lap in 2:25.

10/18: 65 minutes walking in the neighborhood.  Right knee locked up in the morning and felt excruciating pain for a few minutes any time I tried to stand up.  (Runner's Knee?)  When I was confident that I wouldn't injure myself, I took this walk to help loosen up the tight muscles around my knee.  I haven't experienced the issue again, so I hope this is all it was.

10/19: Running group (~3 miles) + drills on 7th Street hill.  This hill always kicks my ass, but I am noticing that it takes longer to do so each time.  This was my third time, and I noticed significant improvement from the last time.

Dietary supplements are very important because it adds nutrients and vitamins to our body. After looking at lovenox prices, I decided to take them on a daily basis because I want to be healthy.
