Let me be honest. When I get home from a run…I KNOWWWW I should be eating or drinking something to help with my muscle recovery but it just doesn’t happen all that often. Yes, it is pure laziness and I just don’t have the energy to make anything… When the opportunity came up to try a workout recovery drink, my interest was peaked. I opted in to test the Science In Sport Rapid Recovery sport recovery supplement and hoped having a “quick” option for nutrition after my harder workouts would benefit my recovery.
While I keep my days FULL, I don’t feel like I am an overly anxious person — but when it comes to relaxing after a long day, sleep does not always come easy. For this reason, I decided to use iKOR in one dose at bedtime. By adding iKOR to my evening routine for the past few of weeks, I have seen some major improvements in my sleep. #bibchat #ikorbr
When it comes to refuelling and rehydrating, one of the supplements I have used throughout my training is BCAAs or branched chain amino acids. I was given the opportunity to try the BCAA Big 6 product from Now Foods as a BibRave Pro. Knowing more about the company and their dedication to safe, clean products made me real excited! #bibchat #nowbr
I love my shoes…like any runner does. And I find that I wear my running shoes even when I am not running. They are comfortable and fresh feeling!
But running shoes aren’t intended for “everyday” wear. They are intended to give you spring in your step and log those long miles! So what is a girl to do?
Well, I have owned a couple pair of OOFOS over the years and these shoes are the perfect choice for post-run, everyday wear. In fact, with the most recent pair I received as a BibRave Pro, I didn’t realize how old my previous pair is! Let’s chat!
As an active individual, I run into little niggles and issues from time to time. With the growing mileage I plan to run this year, I now have confidence that using tools like the CTM Band will keep my muscles happy! Plus, it’s PEAK WEEK in my training for the Garmin Marathon in a few short weeks! Check it out!
With all the miles I run, finding useful recovery tools is very important!
I am not great about sitting around and soaking my feet when I would rather be moving around…and foam rollers don’t always help get out the kinks in my feet.
A short while ago, I read online that OOFOS was going to come out with a new recovery shoe! As a BibRave Pro ambassador, I was able to be one of the first to check out this new closed shoe design – the OOmg!
Running is what keeps me moving, most days. I have been running off and on for years, but didn’t really stay in my routine until last year. Last year I started running to lose weight and get back into a healthier attitude. Through all of the hard work, I have been able to set goals, accomplish said goals, and enjoy the journey along the way. There are many focuses that ebb and flow through my training schedule, but the keys are Route, RUN, Refuel, Recovery, and Refocus.
…better late than never 🙂 It was a busy weekend with a busy week to follow! Friday Well, this Friday started like few before…no work!! I PLANNED on running first thing…but it just didn’t happen. I did go to the store, buy more eggs (thanks to hubs dinner last night and using them all), get… Continue reading KC trip + 1st marathon | Weekend Wrap
Now that winter is almost over, **knock on wood** I can start breaking out the shorts…or at least this week! I am excited for warmer temps…but I am not excited for hot summer days. For now, I can mix up my morning, lunch, and evening workouts…but pretty soon, I am going to be keeping it to… Continue reading marathon training w8
This weeks training went well! My workouts got a little funny-business at the end of the week…but it all worked out – it just means that next week is going to be a higher mileage week due to this weeks long run being run on Sunday (when the weather was 20+ degrees warmer than Saturday!). Don’t… Continue reading marathon training w7
