    Swimming on Whole30

    One of my goals for my first Whole30, today is Day 10, is to increase my energy level and possibly performance during morning swim workouts with my local masters/adult club (roughly 3000 meters, 3 or 4 timers per week). I am 49 (5-0 in July) and while never competitive on an accomplished level like high school or college, love swimming enough that it's my primary form of exercise. Since I started the Whole30, and realizing I am only 10 days in, swim workouts have been a struggle, or more of a struggle than usual. Can I expect to experience an uptick in energy over the next few weeks? I have been following the recommendation to eat a little protein before workouts (tex-mex chicken frittata "muffin", e.g.) followed by a full breakfast (more of the same with fruit, handful of almonds usually). As of Monday I added potato/starches to 2 or 3 meals. Anyhow, just looking for general nutritional advice and or insights. I'm swimming through the doldrums in the meantime, hoping the water starts to feel a little lighter over the next few weeks. Thanks!

    Two-A-Days

    I swim for my college, so practicing in the summer is necessary. At this level, even taking a day out of the pool isn't an option. Unfortunately, it is also our off season, so I use my summers to build up my strength training because it is so hard to keep up a focus on strength during the season. This means that I'm swimming from 5 AM to 7 AM and then lifting during my lunch hour at my internship. My lifts have been sluggish and my heart rate quickly spikes. I've increased my carb intake (sweet potatotes mostly), but I wanted to know if I should be eating 7 meals per day with this training schedule: 2 pre-WO, 2 post-WO, and the standard 3? Also, I was wondering if anyone had tips/suggestions for the types of foods I should be eating before and after each workout? Thanks!
