Repost @clippedinandfree // The bike is my companion in hard times. Times full of stress. It is winter and cycling outside gets a little more challenging these days. Reality sometimes is too hard without long rides.
I really need my coping machine and maybe even more than usual.
Currently in search for a sunny and warmer place to ride.
Where to go for holiday next week?
Haven't made any plans yet and I feel like I should hurry up and book something to escape for a while.
Can't wait to spend some awesome days with bae 😁
Repost @ronskivitch // It’s been a couple of months since we’ve started this year long sojourn. We’ve had to declutter by disposing, or storing most of our possessions. It was scary, particularly when I’m a subconscious hoarder. Two months in, and I don’t miss my “stuff”. Minimalism is liberating!
Many of you may wonder what mitochondria are and why you should care about them. As an endurance athlete, the microscopic entities (organelles) located inside your muscle cells known as mitochondria are critical to your training and racing success. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or a pro athlete; the proper care and feeding of your mitochondria is crucial.
As athletes, we all know about oxygen and carbohydrates (sugar). The mitochondria take both of these ingredients, also called substrates, and use them to produce the energy (product) that makes your heartbeat and your muscles perform.
Glucose (the form of sugar found in our blood stream) is repackaged inside the complex internal structure of the mitochondria into two key components: pyruvate and Nicotinic Adenine Dinucleotide (NADH). These two chemicals are now transported into the central part of the organelle where, in the presence of oxygen (this is of primary importance), they are used to produce ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is a nifty little chemical that is essentially the energy currency (think money, not electricity) of the cell. .
