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.
