training and genetics most can get away with bloody murder in the diet department.
Compare that to your average ST AGâ€™er thatâ€™s 40-55 years old and doing 1/2 to 1/3 of the training load and intensity and crushing pizzas, cupcakes and pints of ice cream just isnâ€™t going to work to stay lean and healthy.
I will say this though I think everyone on this blog ST would absolutely crap their pants if they saw what most of these athletes eat. I have had a chance to spend time with pretty much every top-level athlete in our sport. (Outside of Jan) and watch their daily routines and diets. I can assure you a lot, a lot, a lot of junk food. From Ryf, To Lange, too Gwen, Tim and Rinny, Ellie, Lucy Charles. This is extremely normal for these types of athletes. Speaking of that if I had a $ for every time we were at a race and Tim and Rinny had me run to the store to get Ice cream I would be $$$$.
