Hi! Im new to this forum and have a question/need inspiration.
In the past six years I have run six marathons and am hugely a cardio junkie. I am usually doing some form of cardio 5 miles a day, lift weights about 2x per week and take gym classes (weights/cardio, etc.) I generally run about a 8 - 9 minute mile.
The PB recommendations, particularly about the chronic cardio and what it does to cortisol levels make perfect sense to me. I have been trying to lose the same 10 pounds for years now and have hope that changing my exercise style will do that for me. My diet has been Primal, as I was overcoming a candida issue.
The problem is overcoming my addiction to the cardio and the need to be exercizing at a type "A" level. I would appreciate any suggestions to brining my workouts to a much more PB level taking my addiction and current fitness level into account. (Like would slow cardio be a slow jog or does it have to be walking?)
Thank you! And help!
