Athlete: Debra Rose McMahon Levitt
How I Eat
I'm more of an IF (intermittent fasting) and "same food" kind of person. Makes it easy for my husband when he goes to the grocer! Basically it's nuts, tofu, navel oranges, apples, tomatoes (love tomato sandwiches), low sodium bread, pasta occasionally, no-sodium tomato, squash & vegetable soup and oatmeal. Gave up meat in 1977....yep, makes me a vegetarian.....it's been so long i don't even think about it!
How I Train
We have been following The OutLaw Way for a year and a half. We merge in some Smolov Jr., the best of CrossFit.com (HQ), and of course design our own. On top of that I am runner at heart, so I have my running & swimming workouts that parallel the Strength & Metcons. I finesse light days and heavy days. Sunday is my long run day always and forever! Another "must" run are 12x400m tempos with some 10x100m....then throw in whatever else I come up with long or short. Swimming is the game-changer! Trying to do 1 or 2 half-mile workouts a week is effective, fun, and I can be finished in 1/2 hour!.....basically I'm always running (slow)!
My Athletic Background
I have an extensive fitness background in running, swimming, martial arts, bodybuilding and power lifting from way back in the 80's & 90's.
