    Breaking the run a lot and eat everything in sight mentality

    Breaking the run a lot and eat everything in sight mentality

    After a long run, it's hard to resist the urge to eat everything in sight, much like how it's hard to resist the pull of a toxic romantic relationship. Just like a long run can leave you feeling exhausted and drained, a toxic relationship can also drain you of your energy and sense of self. And just as a post-run snack can provide a much-needed energy boost, a toxic partner can also temporarily provide a rush of excitement and validation.
    Find out how to break the run a lot and eat everything in sight mentality and more.

    Seven proven supplements to help you crush your run recovery

    Seven proven supplements to help you crush your run recovery

    Work + Rest + Recovery = Training, not work + work + work. This means that when you go hard or long on a run, you need to properly recover.
    Supplements! They polarise and divide the endurance sports and running community. Some people love em, so people don’t - I personally like them for many reasons and… maybe you should consider them in your recovery routine if you don’t already.
    Disclaimer - Take these if you’re healthy and consult with a medical professional. this is all for fun. this doesn’t replace real food.

    How much thought do you put into what you eat after a run and how well it will help you recover? If you are like the 3 years ago, it wasn’t much more than “Was it easy to get and am I full - okay I'm good”.
    Learn about the 8 real foods that you can get anywhere for running recovery.
    This is a fun compliment episode to the best supplements for everyday recovery episode that we released a bit ago.
