I have so much to share! Make sure you follow me because I won’t have time to get it all out in this one session! Here’s whats to come this week….
Last week I was mentally challenged by a right toe which at one point looked like a huge blister! I seem to have found a combination of methods, treatments and remedies which have worked. I am troubled no more! Jump over to my FeetMAGIC! page later this week for the toe-down (sorry!) on how to treat them.
Don’t try This at this stage!
In fact don’t try ANYTHING close to a marathon. I thought I would be helping my muscles with a Warm Bamboo Massage about 10 days ago. The truth is, I’m only just recovering. It was too hard and with my continued training, my calves have been suffering since. I hear it’s called accumulative injury. If you book a massage, be clear about what you want and don’t be afraid (like me) to ask the therapist to STOP if it hurts. One should stay on the couch! Check out the MassageMAGIC! page for more information later this week!
If the shoe fits……
….it’s probably too small. Yes I’ve had a huge crash course in running shoes philosophy this week. And opinions differ as far as the marathon itself. For my overall summation, stride over to FeetMAGIC! in the next few days. Follow me and you’ll know when.
Fuel for finishing fabulously
I am a great supporter of fresh home-cooked from scratch food, a low-carb, high fibre diet, so this training has been a challenge and massive change in priority for me. All of a sudden I have a cupboard full energy bars, drinks, protein powders and pasta. How am I managing this change in attitude and can it last? Also read my troubles with caffeine – FoodMAGIC!
Zzzzzs for Repair
I have never slept so much as these last 2 weeks of training! I struggle to get up most mornings, stay awake between 11 and 4 pm without caffeine or a nap and am ready for the sack again by 8pm most nights. I hear that most professional athletes can have up to 12 hours a night and still nap in the day. That’s all very well if that’s what you do for a living. How to get the sleep you need and still have a life while in training is over on the RecoveryMAGIC! page. Look here too for information on how to recover when you can’t walk to the bathroom let alone get out there for another Tempo run.
Get following me now and you won’t miss a tip, trick or taste of everything running I have to offer….
