19 weeks to go. I will fully admit that I am so not ready for this and have not really trained at all this summer for my very first marathon coming up in January. I haven’t exactly sat on my bum all summer, but I sure haven’t been running consistently. So this week I started back on my first week of even thinking about training. I only got in two workouts, but I guess it is a start.
My biggest focus right now is just to go. No particular time or speed, just go. The kids have been back in school for two weeks so I have the time now to workout, but of course either I am too tired or have lots of work to catch up on so I have made excuses to myself of why I haven’t worked out more this past week. I have done some research online to find a good training plan, so my hope is that I can follow it as closely as possible to start getting my body ready for such a long distance.
One thing I have done is to focus on my nutrition. My new morning routine has really helped me get in the nutrients I need to get going. I am sure I will have to adapt it and add in more calories to fuel myself for longer and longer runs. I have another product that I will start adding in as well called ENERGYBits. There is nothing more nutritionally dense, easier to take, or more natural than EnergyBits algae bits. They are the fastest way to improve your health and athletic performance. Algae is a FOOD CROP so your body absorbs all of its plant-based nutrition! In fact, you don’t need any other supplements, fish oil, minerals, vitamins or other energy products when you take our bits, so they save you both money and time!
When a handful of ENERGYbits® are swallowed at the start of your day or 10-15 minutes prior to a workout, race, game or run, they reduce hunger and provide a steady flow of energy and eliminate fatigue all naturally and all without digestive distress. The reason is simple. ENERGYbits® do not contain any caffeine, sugar or chemicals yet they have the highest concentration of protein in the world (64%), all in amino acid form which are absorbed instantly to provide a steady flow of glucose. ENERGYbits® also contain 40 vitamins/minerals, natural nitric oxide to open blood vessels, antioxidants to fight free radicals, Omega 3 to reduce inflammation, iron to prevent fatigue and electrolytes to prevent dehydration. All this from just one ingredient –organically grown Non-GMO spirulina and all for just one calorie per tab.
