DAILY ROUNDUP OF INTERESTING BITS

New factoids I found that are of particular interest.

Are you eating and training right, but just can’t seem to figure out why you aren’t reaping the benefits of your labor? Mark Sisson of Mark’s Daily Apple outlines factors which may be derailing your efforts to achieve peak performance, in and out of the weight room or track.  When you consider how the 100 m dash comes down to hundredths of a second or the balance beam comes down to hundredths of a point, can anyone afford to overlook any one factor? (By the way, I’m guilty of this. I need to foam roll more and go to bed earlier. I guess now would be a good time to start.)

Another article explaining why almond butter trumps peanut butter. Loaded with fiber, iron, Vitamin E and monounsaturated fat (the good kind of fat), almond butter pairs up nicely with celery, apples, bananas as a midday snack. (I personally have a penchant for dunking carrots into a jar of almond butter.) Most importantly, almond butter is not a legume (unlike peanut butter which is).
