“Anyone can train hard. Do you have the discipline to recover?” – Lauren Fleshman
I’m not unique or different to you. In fact, I am just like you. I just decided one day to make a change just like you are going to do one day.
I feel we tend to over complicate the foods we eat; think about your top 20 foods and then figure out ways to incorporate these into quick and easy meals.
I wasn’t sick. I didn’t have a cold nor did I have a hamstring issue that two days before the race made me book a last-minute appointment with a physio who I was hoping was going to tell me everything was OK.
During the course of the race be present in the activity; the more connected you are to your running, the longer you’ll be able to keep running.
My mantra for this race was ‘Run Mindful, Run Free’ I had this on repeat in my head from the start to finish. I wasn’t sure where I was going to place for this run but I had a goal and I was running towards that.
If your current diet is making your feel tired and unwell, then its time to make some changes for the better.
Runners see food a little different. Its not just something we eat to stop the stomach rumbling but something we eat for fuel, performance and most importantly to aid recovery.
When you look back on the foods you grew up with, which foods do you think about the most? And how vastly different are your food choices now to when you were growing up?
We all know that potatoes make you fat, right? Potatoes are just empty carbs, no different to eating pure table sugar, right? Wrong!
