Now it seems summer is sadly over and the evenings are drawing in, can we please remind you of the importance of wearing high visibility clothing to Harriers sessions and on all morning or evening runs. The safety of all runners is our top priority. Let’s enjoy the dark winter months! #run#staysafe#highvis#runningclub#summerisover#winterrunning#headtorch
I’ll get my 60 miles this week with just a 5 mile run today. My MP runs have been on the money, but yesterday’s run was slow (9 miles @7:59). Technically, an 8 minute mile is exactly what I need to run, but I’ve never run a marathon that was exactly 26.2. What about the tangents? I’m trying to make my MP pace 7:55, so this run was a little slow. My pace was right on until the last couple of miles. The last few miles really get me (hills), but usually I do better. I’ve only got about three weeks to get a handle on those hills.
◽️Question for marathon runners: what is your longest marathon pace run during a training cycle?
❤️BEST FOODS FOR RUNNING ❤️Superfoods for the Ultrarunner👍
Maca is a root vegetable originally cultivated in Peru, where the Incans consumed it before going off to war in order to sustain energy levels while fighting in battle. It is believed to do so “by allowing the body to increase its efficiency of oxygen consumption. Surges of oxygen naturally awaken the body and mind: allowing us to think clearer and move longer. It also nourishes and regulates the pituitary gland, which in turn creates homeostasis and allows the body to work more efficiently. It increases strength and endurance by allowing additional glucose in the blood stream, making it great for continued exercises after extended effort,” reports Manuel Villacorta, MS, RDN, author of Whole Body Reboot: the Peruvian Superfood Diet.
For this reason, maca is very good for pre-exercise fueling. Villacorta suggests adding maca to a pre-workout shake and he offers a few options on his website. Vega offers products containing maca, such as the Vega Maca Chocolate, Vega One Shake and Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator. Vega’s Education Manager and Fitness Expert, Andrew Raines, RHN, who is an ultrarunner, states that maca can also be used in recovery since it reduces inflammation by reducing the speed of stressful impact from exercise. Maca is a good source of amino acids and can nourish adrenal glands tired from the stress of exercise.
