Running – 2020

new personal record for # of miles/month 🙂
before:

breakfast – cup of coffee, oatmeal + vitamins (multi, probiotic)

pre-workout – Celcius energy drink (~1/2 can)

always stretch (hamstrings, calf muscles, ankles, hips), jog slowly at the start to warm up + sometimes foam rolling before (if needed)

lace-up – current shoes are Nike Free Rn 5s (longtime Free Rns fan)

during:

music/motivation – Apple AirPods + Apple Music playlists

tracking – Nike Run Club App (distance > duration), Apple Watch Series 5

tips – if something doesn’t feel good, stop + stretch a little more. if out of breath, take a quick pause to catch it – don’t force anything! i also find i do some of my best thinking out on my runs, so i’m often writing things down on my phone in the Notes app.

after:

muscle recovery – stretching immediately, ice specific muscles (if needed)

hydration – water, BCAA drink mix + protein shake upon return from run, later on will have water, coconut water or sugar-free Gatorade or Nuun drink tablets (electrolytes)

hygiene – try to always shower asap, but if i need to finish up the strength training portion of workout first, i make sure to still wash my face immediately to prevent pores from becoming clogged (+acne forming)
