Infinit Napalm Review

A few days ago, I had a phone consultation with Infinit Nutrition and worked out a formula that was tailored to my specific race distances and the need my body has while racing.   From the basic Go Far formula, we increased the amount of sodium and protein in it since I’m a heavy sweater and tend to race long.  I also discovered that Infinit makes their version of an energy gel called NAPALM toward the end of the 2012 season.  I sampled some at a race expo and like that it was actually a liquid, easy to swallow, and not overly sweet.  I asked them to throw in a package of the highly caffeinated version of NAPALM.

The phone consultation was on Thursday… the stuff showed up at my door on Saturday!  I was happy to see that they even threw in a couple bottles.  One for the custom blend they made for me and a flask for the NAPALM. (NAPALM is much more economical than buying gels.  Each 100 calorie serving is about $0.85, and with all the electrolytes, it will more than likely reduce and/or remove the need for electrolyte tablets.)

With my first race only a little over a month away (70.3 Panama – Latin American 70.3 Championship), I wanted to give this new product a solid trial run.  I mixed up 3 bottles of Infinit and 4 ounces of NAPALM highly caffeniated formula.  I had never mixed up NAPALM before and was little shocked when it said to fill the flask up to the rim and add equal water and shake it.  I was thinking, there is no way that water can dissolve that much solute… but gave it a try anyway.  I only put 4 ounce of NAPALM in the flask (it holds 6 ounces) which is equivalent to 200 calories (see end of post for more nutritional content).  I added water until it covered the NAPALM, put the lid on and gave it a good shake.  In about 5 seconds it was completely dissolved.  I took a small sip to see what it tasted like:  a subtle sweet fruity taste and some saltiness mixed in there as well.  It was completely liquid… not a paste or gel consistency, so it went down super easy.  I gathered my nutrition and headed to my basement for a nice 3 hour spin session.  This the workout that I did:

Warm up:
15 minutes easy riding at 56-75% FTP

Main Set:
2 x 20 minutes at 90-95% FTP with 10 minutes recovery
30 minutes of tempo 80-85% FTP with a 10 second burst of sprinting on  every 1:30
3 x 5 minutes at 110% of FTP  with 5 minutes of easy riding between each
3 x 5 minutes hill climbing at 60-70 rpm (Z3 effort) with 5 minutes rest between

Cool down:
15 minutes easy spinning

The Carnage after the 3 hour training session in my training shrine in my basement. Thanks to Chris Shannon for doing the entire workout with me!

This was one of the hardest 3 hour spin sessions I’ve done before, but in order to see how my custom mix and NAPALM would do for me on race day, I wanted to push the limits.  I went through 2 bottles of Infinit and all 4 ounces of NAPALM and a couple bottles of water.  I took the NAPALM at the one hour mark, the 1:45 mark and the 2:20 mark.  Not once during the ride did I feel hungry, feel that my electrolytes were depleting, or a lack of energy.  I could feel the caffeine in the NAPALM hit my system only after about 5 minutes of taking a sip.  I imagine the high electrolyte content in the NAPALM helped keep my electrolytes in check the whole time.

Another thing I noticed during this three hour training ride was the need to readjust my training zones.  At the end of October, I tested my FTP at 338 watts (4.59 watts/kilogram).  I used that number for the training zones during the ride and felt that they were actually too easy, so I rode at the high end or just over of those zones.  This is a huge confidence booster for me.  I am once again reminded that my coach, Justin Trolle,  knows exactly what he’s doing, the boot camp sessions at Pure Fit are helping, and the lessened workload at U of L Hospital has been worth it.  And of course, thanks to Infinit for helping me with nutrition, which will make or break a good finish in 70.3 or 140.6 races.  I am starting to set my goals for Panama 70.3 and feel that I have a good shot of walking away with a paycheck from that race.

If you feel that this review was helpful and decide you want to try my custom formula, please contact me via email (mike.s.hermanson@gmail.com) or my facebook page… and be sure to “like” it.  You can help me out in my endeavors simply by purchasing my custom formula or any other Infinit products.  Every time you purchase something with the link I can send you, I receive some Infinit Bucks.  Also, help me get over 200 likes on my facebook page by the end of the year!

Sweaty Sheep Merry Christmas 5K

This post is a bit late in coming, but last weekend on the 22nd of December, Sweaty Sheep put on a 5K.  The race was organized by my friend, Ryan Althaus and the timing done by Headfirst Performance.  The race went from a brain baby to an actual event only a little over a month before the race date.  With a little bit of marketing and telling people about the event by word of mouth, Sweaty Sheep pulled of an amazing event.

For the brave-hearted, there was an option to drink a 4 ounce glass of eggnog at the start line and then at every mile marker.  I decided to take part in the challenge and have some fun while wearing my ugly Christmas attire.  The eggnog tasted so good as it hit the lips, but as soon as it got to my stomach, I felt my stomach starting to turn.  If only I were able to stomach this stuff in a real race… talk about the calorie replacement!  As for now, I’ll stick with Infinit!

The purpose behind the event was to help raise awareness of the homeless shelters in the area.  Ryan worked with several of them, including Wayside Mission, Exit Zero, and Jefferson Street Shelter just to name a few.  After the race, Little Ceasars and Chic-fil-a donated a bunch of food for the athletes.  But there weren’t just athletes at the dinner.  The homeless people were invited too.  We all gathered in the Presbyterian Center downtown and had a little Christmas service.  During this whole time, the homeless people gathered up supplies they needed, such as toiletries  coats, clothes, shoes, non-perishable goods, etc. in sling bags that many of us athletes donated from our overwhelming supply we have from getting one from each race.

It was a truly a blessed time for athletes and the homeless to come together and share a meal together.  And in case you missed it, be sure you’re there next year as this will become an annual tradition in Louisville!

Merry Christmas!

Gluten Free Brown Rice Muffins

Merry (late) Christmas to everyone.  I hope you all made some memories with families and friends during this busy time of year and took time to reflect on the true reason for the season.

Yesterday, one of the gifts that I received from my parents was a set of muffin tins.  Yup… I actually asked for those!  I have been wanting some for quite some time now.  The main reason was because I found a recipe in “The Feed Zone” book that I wanted to try.  I wasted no time and decided to try to make them today:

Brown Rice Muffins (Gluten-Free)

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup applesauce (I used a whole apple which was about one cup chopped instead)
  • 2 Tbsp molasses
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • pinch of salt
  • vanilla extract
  • ground cinnamon

  1. Heat oven to 325 and lightly grease the muffin tin
  2. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend til a nice batter is formed
  3. Divide into muffin tins and bake for about 15-20 minutes

This recipe made 10 muffins for me.

Cycle Smiths and Scott Plasma Fit Job

So I’m sitting here in the dark after the wind knocked out the electricity to the house.  Thankfully, my housemate has battery backup to the internet and router, so I’m still able to do some work.  I can’t help but find the irony in having no power as the Apocalypse is supposed to be tomorrow.  And, I’m even happier to get my new bike in my possession before the world ends.

Today, Rick Smith, the owner at Cycle Smiths, called me and said my bike was ready to pick up.  I immediately dropped everything I was doing and rushed into town to get dialed in on my new ride, the Scott Plasma Premium.  I knew the bike would shift between gears seamlessly and the ride would be incredibly smooth, since he’s the best mechanic that I’ve had work on my equipment.  I guess that would make sense, since he has been in the bike industry for about 15 years.

 

 

When I arrived at the store, I put my pedals and bottle cages on while Rick place the John Cobb V-Flow Plus saddle on it.  I absolutely love that saddle.  Most comfortable one that I’ve owned from the time I first bought it and only gets more comfortable as you use it.

Rick started with cutting the seat post so that it would be bottomed out in the frame.  Since my legs are short and my torso is long, he ended up having to cut it down quite a bit!

From there we moved onto getting the saddle correctly positioned on the seat post so that my hip and knee angle would be correct as well as the knee in the correct position over the pedals when the pedals are at the 3 and 9 o’clock position.

Next up were the lasers.  Rick positioned lasers on the floor to make sure my cleat alignment was correct and my knees weren’t going any direction but up and down.

The whole process only took about 45 minutes.  Rick is very efficient at what he does and can do it with extreme accuracy and precision.  More fit pictures at the end of the post.

Below are Rick’s credentials… I’ll them speak for themselves:

  • BG (Body Geometry) Certified
  • F.I.S.T. (Fit Institute Slow Twitch) Certified for Triathlon
  • Bike Fit Systems

He can do the following services at his shop, but isn’t limited to these by any means:

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Every fall I buy up a bunch of pumpkins, butternut squash, and spaghetti squash.  Each time I cut one of them open, I save the seeds.  I place them in a bag and place them in the freezer until about this time of year when the squash and pumpkin is no longer in season and becomes super expensive again.  It’s funny how you can buy a couple pie pumpkins and get enough seeds out of two pumpkins that would probably cost twice or three times as much some seeds by themselves in a health food store.

The process of baking up some pumpkin seeds takes a little bit of time:

1. Thaw the seeds in some warm water

2.  Place seeds in a strainer and run water over them to get the slime off of them.

3.  Transfer seeds to a mixing bowl and fill with water.  Stir the seeds in the water (this helps separate the pumpkin seeds from the pumpkin “guts” that tagged along during the whole process.  The seeds float and the guts sink to the bottom of the bowl).

4. Heat the oven t0 400 degrees

5.  Season the seeds with any concoction that sounds good.  (I’ve done salt and pepper, cinnamon, ginger and garlic, salt and Worcestershire sauce in the past and all have been really good.)

6.  Spread seeds on a cookie sheet thinly

7.  Bake at 400 degrees for about 30-35 minutes

 

Below are some pictures of the process:

Otter Creek Trail Marathon Race Report

Every time I trail run, I have a blast.  It’s much more fun than running the roads.  A for a fleeting moment, I think to myself about possibly taking up this sport and replacing triathlons.  But, it’s a very fleeting moment.  For now, it’s a good way to put in training time on my feet, build a good base and strength while hopefully not injuring myself.

Otter Creek is a park located southwest of Louisville, in Meade County.  Even though it’s outside of Jefferson County, Louisville Metro Parks owns the property.  Located just off of Dixie Highway, it’s very easy to get to and offers several things to do at the park from repelling, hiking, fishing, and camping.  However, this time I came to trail run.  There were options for 8, 16, and 26.2 miles (actual distances were more like 9, 18, and 27).  Each distance beyond 8 miles, meant you had to run an extra lap.  I signed up for the full marathon giving myself the option to cut it short if I didn’t feel like running 3 laps since I had only trail run once in the last 3 or 4 weeks.

I came into the race with a mindset of just running a nice even pace.  Obviously, I wanted to win, but if I didn’t win, I wasn’t going to be upset since I was coming into this race unprepared.  I had a nutritional strategy figured out based on other trail running I’ve done.  Infinit Bike formula and some gels to help replace calories.  I used gels because I knew with the cooler temperatures I would be drinking too much sports drink to get adequate calories and would have to find a tree off the trail too often.  I carried two gels with me, and planned on using a couple from the course to get me through the marathon, if I ended up running that far.

The race started on time, with looming clouds overhead promising that this race wouldn’t stay dry for long.  Just a couple miles into the race, it started sprinkling.  At that point, was the steepest decent of the race.  Just the small amount of rain made it a bit slick, but not too bad for the shoes I was wearing.  I managed to make it down in one piece with 1st place about 30 seconds ahead of me.  My friend Ryan Althaus ran about half of the first lap with me.  It was nice to have someone to talk to for the first 5 miles.  Unfortunately, he has been struggling with some pain issues in his hip for a few months now, and had to back off after the first aid station.

The aid station marked the bottom of the trail, and to get back up to the where we started involved climbing.  There was two sections of sustained climbing, and with the rain picking up, it made it tough to climb.  My stride lengths were cut in half from sliding down the hill while climbing.  I came to the second aid station, starting my second lap, in second place with third just behind.  First lap was completed in about 1:05

I approached the steep decent again, only this time the trail had turned to mud.  I had to walk a good portion of this part because I was wearing road racing shoes and didn’t want to plummet to my death onto some sharp rocks.  I let 3rd place pace me, but caught back up to him at the 3rd aid station.  When I arrived there, he told me first place was 2 or 3 minutes ahead of me.  I kind of figured he would continue to build a gap and would go on to win.  I didn’t really care too much… I was just having fun.  I downed a gel and began running back up to start of the 3rd lap.  Second lap was completed in about 1:08

At this point, I was contemplating cutting it short and doing the 16 mile option.  However, about a mile before reaching the 3rd lap, I got a second wind and started feeling really good again.  I refilled my bottle with more Infinit Bike formula and took off on the third lap.

Just as I started the 3rd lap, it started pouring.  I began dreading the down hill.  Between feeling good and wanting to distance between me and 3rd place, I started picking up my speed.  I actually made it down the hill a little faster this time than the last despite the even muddier conditions.  Maybe it was confidence from the first two laps, or maybe it was stupidity, but what I did seemed to work.  I came to the bottom of the trail and ran along Otter Creek for the third time.  I saw someone ahead of me wearing bright green.  For a moment, I thought to myself, “I wonder if that is first place?”  I quickly threw that option out thinking that he was probably beyond the aid station by now.  As I got closer and came around the corner, I realized it was first place.  I though to myself, “Okay… maybe I can win this thing.”  I didn’t want to pick up my pace yet as I still had all the climbing left to do for this lap and knew that it was going to be a muddy mess climbing those hills again.

I entered the short out-and-back section that lead us to the aid station.  I didn’t waste any time.  I grabbed a gel and ate it on the run instead of savoring it while standing still at the aid station.  I saw second place about a minute behind me after passing him about a 1/2 mile ago.

I did my best to maintain a steady pace, but as I neared the end of the third lap, I began to feel hungry and lacking energy.  I drank what was left in my bottle of Infinit and felt a little pick me up.  Finally, I saw the final aid station.  Once I got there, I only had about 1/4 mile run to the finish.  I looked over my shoulder and didn’t see 2nd place behind.  I jogged it in and crossed the finish line just after the clock clicked to 3:28.

I am very happy with my results.  I am even more happy with the even pacing I did for the three laps.  I think it would have been even closer to even pacing if the trails weren’t so wet and slippery.

I’m just glad that Troy “the Kentucky Hammer” Shellhamer didn’t show up for the race, giving me a chance to win one last race before 2012 ends!

Thanks to Infinit Nutrition for the amazing product to fuel my body during this race.  I also think that the boot camps I’ve started doing at Pure Fit played a huge role in helping me race so well.  My legs felt strong the whole time and the day after the race I wasn’t really sore, which typically happens when I run trails.

Brooks Airbrush Studio and Mike Hermanson’s Scott Plasma Premium

When I first moved to Louisville, I lived in an apartment complex that I strategically chose because of the proximity to the interstate, a few different easy ways to get out of city by bike, and across the street from the gym and grocery store.  Before I started my real job as a nurse at University of Louisville Hospital, I had about a month to kill after moving here.  I did a fair amount of exploring, and quickly noticed a triathlon bike locked to a bike rack at the other end of the parking lot of the apartment complex I lived in.  Long story short, the person that owned that bike was Kevin Brooks.  We got to know each other after taking a long road trip to Kansas 70.3 and have been friends since.  Fast forward about 2 years and Kevin started his own custom helmet and bike painting business called Brooks Airbrush Studio. 

Last year he accented my bike with green to match my kit and also painted my helmet for the team that I raced for.  Even though it was just an accent job, his detail that added to my bike turned a lot of head.  Everywhere I went, from Costa Rica to Portland and even my hometown of Louisville,  people noticed this bike was something different.

Well, I think this year should be no different.  Kevin painted my Scott Plasma Premium, this time fully-custom.  However, the really cool thing about it, is that you can still see the stock logos and shades of the original black, grey, and white .  He also marblized portions of it.  I can continue to say how awesome it is and try to explain it, but since a picture is worth a thousand words, I let them speak for themselves:

I will make another post when Cycle Smiths builds the bike and when Kevin get the wheels painted as well.

Gluten Free Sweet Potato Pancakes

This last July, I made a trip to Portland, OR for a race and vacation.  I had the privledge of staying with a really neat host family, the Dailey family.  The made me feel right at home in a new location.  Jason (the father/husband) and I had a fair amount in common… triathletes, loved the outdoors, and health nuts.  While I was there, he was frequently made stuff from scratch from very simple ingredients.  Not only did he whip the meals together in lightening speed, but they were full of fresh fruits, veggies, and/or whole grains (mostly rice or quinoa).  I asked him where he got all these great ideas and he showed me a book that was written by two chefs for the Radio Shack pro cycling team.  The book is called “The Feed Zone.”

The feed zone is a book full of recipes that are easy to make and are designed for athletes.  We all have busy schedules and don’t have a ton of extra time to make nutritious meals, but with the tricks mentioned in this book it can reduce meal prep time in half.  Plus, since the cooks were literally working in a bus, they had limited ingredients.  So almost every recipe has about 7 ingredients or less!

Today I tried the Sweet Potato Pancake recipe in the book… but did a little spin on it.  I made it gluten free.  It’s still simple, cheap, and delicious.

Here’s how to make it gluten free.  Pictures below to give you a visual on how to do it as well:

  • 2 cups of old fashioned oats (after putting them into a blender to make flour.  It just under 4 cups of oats)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 cups cook sweet potatos, mashed (or one large can organic sweet potatoes)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups soy or almond milk

1. combine all ingredients in a bowl and use an electric hand mixer to mix together into a thick batter consistency

2.  Heat oven to 375 degrees

3.  Spray olive oil, or another nonstick spray, on a baking sheet.  Spread batter evenly over a large baking sheet

4.  Bake for about 30 minutes

I like to use the oven because I make a large batch of pancakes all at the same time instead of doing one or two at a time.

 

Now that you’ve made some delicious pancakes, don’t ruin them with a cheap syrup made from corn.  Splurge a little and buy some real maple syrup… your taste buds (and body) will thank you!

Athlete Friendly and Gluten Free Pizza

I do my best to eat well.  I am a firm believer in the importance of what we ingest on a daily basis plays a significant role in our body’s immediate health, health down the road when we get older, and athletic purposes.  Choosing the right foods to eat at specific times of the day will help the body recover from previous stress placed on it during training and as a result help us perform better in the races.

Like everyone else out there, I crave junk food every once in a while and succumb to the pressure.  When our body craves something, it may be lacking a nutrient found in the food… the trick is knowing what the body wants and finding other ways to fill that need.  Over the last few days, I was really craving pizza.   I decided that I was going to make my own pizza from scratch to make it healthier and full of good protein sources.  And like every good pizza, it starts with a good crust (in this case, gluten-free) with very simple ingredients:

Crust Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 cup lentils
  • 1/2 9oz bag of spinach
  • 3-4 carrots, shredded

Preparing the crust:

  1. place rice and lentils in water and soak for about 8 hours
  2. Drain the water and place all ingredients in a food processor (adding water if needed to help it blend together) until it forms a paste
  3. Spray a cookie pan with nonstick spray
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes
  5. remove crust from oven

I decided to make a Mediterranean style pizza.  I put artichokes, olives, mushrooms, and spinach on it (I wish it was summer and had a garden fresh tomato to put on it too).  I covered it with about 1.5 lbs of mozzarella cheese and put it back in the oven until the cheese just started to turn golden brown (about 15 more minutes)

I let it sit for a few minutes, then cut it.  To finish it off, I sprinkled some balsamic vinegar on it.

If you want to make it vegan, simply do the following and use instead of the cheese.  Pour over the pizza toppings and enjoy:

Vegan mozzarella

1 c Water

2 sm Cloves roasted garlic

2 tb Fresh lemon juice

1 tb Tahini Paste (the larger amount the cheesier it is)

1/4 c Nutritional yeast

3 tb Quick-cooking rolled oats

1 tb Arrowroot (or cornstarch)

1/8 ts Dry mustard

1 1/2 ts Onion powder

1/2 ts Salt; or salt-free seasoning

 

Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and process until completely smooth.

Infinit Nutrition Review

A little over a year ago, I became a little disgusted with the overly sugary “sports” drinks that were on the market.  My personal feeling is that most of the sports drinks on the market are just well marketed, glorified kool-aid (especially Gatorade and Powerbar Perform).  The amount of sugar in these sports drinks not only made my stomach cramp, but by the end of a race 70.3 or longer I felt like my teeth were rotting!

In 2011, I went to the first year for the Giant Eagle Race in Columbus, OH (before WTC bought it).  Infinit Nutrition was on site during packet pickup and also had their product on the run course (no aid stations were on the bike since it is an Olympic Distance race).  I sampled their run formula and instantly fell in love with the subtle sweet taste and a hint of saltiness to it as well.  No food coloring in it or anything else artificial in it either.

When I returned home from the race, I began doing some research on the product and was very impressed with the nutritional content of it, the price, and the amazing ability to customize it for my own personal needs.

 

I bought a bag of the custom bike mix and noticed that my need to supplement during training rides with salt tabs ceased to exist.  I felt no more stomach problems or cramping while cycling.  I also tried the bike formula for long endurance runs on trails.  It seemed to work extremely well for that too.  However, if doing high intensity running I would recommend trying the run formula.  The carbohydrates are a little easier to digest and there isn’t any protein in the it to slow down digestion and cause bloating.

After trying the custom formula a few times, I wanted to try to making my own mix.  If you desire to, you can even have a free nutrition consult with one of the experts at Infinit Nutrition to help you find something that will work for you.  You have options to control the following variables to make your sports drink special to you:

  • strength of the flavor
  • the carbohydrate blend for the specific race distance
  • calories per serving
  • Electrolyte blend
  • Protein per serving
  • Amino acid blend
  • Caffiene

Infinit allows you to control just about every aspect of your nutrition based on your specific body needs and race distance.  If you’re a smaller person, then you may want to tone back the calories because you don’t need to replace as many as someone of average size or larger.  If you’re doing an ultra marathon, you may want to increase the amount of protein and and electrolytes in your formula.  You may also consider different bags for races in different climates… one for cool to warm weather and one for hot weather so you meet your body’s needs on those specific days.  The options are limitless (or infinite).

Infinit, as mentioned before, does have stock versions of their product which include:

  • Go Far – dextrose, sucrose, maltodextrin, 4g whey protein isolate, BCAAs, L-Glutamine, Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium
  • Go Fast/Speed – a higher percentage of glucose, plus sucrose and maltodextrin, Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium
  • Jet Fuel – Speed plus 125mg caffeine
  • Isis Endurance – dextrose, sucrose, maltodextrin, 2g whey protein isolate, BCAAs, Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium
  • Isis Hydration – dextrose, sucrose, maltodextrin, Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium
  • Repair – whey, Soy and Casein proteins (25/25/50%), maltodextrin, dextrose, fructose, sucrose, BCAAs, L-Glutamine, Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium
  • Mud – whey protein isolate, flax seed, coffee, chocolate, maltodextrin, sucrose, glucose
  • Napalm – a higher percentage of glucose, plus sucrose, fructose and maltodextrin, Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, with or without caffeine

I highly recommend every endurance athlete to try to Infinit Nutrition while training this off season and see what you think.  Take note of how you felt before and after switching.
