Audrey had a follow up iDXA this morning with Dr Buell at OSU. Since late April of this year, and with ½ marathon training beginning in late May 2013 that included one day of 400m, 800m or 1200m repeats totaling about 5 mi, and one long run 4 – 9 mi (varying RPE) on the weekend (total weekly mileage about 9 – 14 mi), she’s at 17.9% body fat (losing about 4 lbs of fat mass and gained about 2.5 lbs of lean mass since April). Yes, added lean mass while adding run training into her programming, with additional nutritional (caloric) support of course. Current bodyweight at 5’7” is 148.6 lbs. Remember she started her life transformation in early 2012 at a bodyweight in the low 190’s and a % bodyfat in the mid 40’s.
Diet is zone based with modifications for activity and performance. Added in creatine monohydrate and beta-alanine along with plant based nitrates for performance over the past couple months, and whey protein and a multi vit from the beginning. No other supplements, weight loss products or programs, just dialed in her diet with foods she likes to eat and stayed rock solid consistent with diet and exercise.
In her words, with 2 kids, a full time job and the drive time to MM Team train and run train with a running coach, it’s tight, but I'm happy, I don't feel stressed, my life is balanced, and I would have never expected these results.
