Injury, and Plant-Based Nutrition - Derek

I am writing once again after a rather extended break. As my last post suggested, I experienced several injuries after my last extended bout of High Intensity Training. One of these injuries has proved troublesome, so I have decided to take time off from training and focus on recovering completely. This also means I have decided to push back my premier contest appearance to a later date.

In the meantime I have focused on educating myself further in nutrition and have just completed the Certification on Plant-Based Nutrition offered jointly by Cornell University and the T. Colin Campbell foundation. This was a phenomenal three-course series covering virtually everything about plant based nutrition, from the physiological effects to social and environmental impacts to elite athleticism. Lectures were given by 8 different experts in the field, and the sum of everything presented was extremely telling. Needless to say, I am more convinced than ever of the importance of our dietary choices, and I encourage anyone with an interest in furthering their own education to enroll in this course series.

For those who choose not to, I will go over some important lessons I learned during this course in posts to come. So in case you've forgotten during my absence, be sure you're still getting plenty of Greens and Beans.

P.S. I was recently quoted in a Richmond Times Dispatch article regarding exercise and job hunting. If you or anyone you know happens to be looking for work you may find it helpful. Take a look here.
