Who is running a fall half marathon, marathon, or ultra?!🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️
Is it too soon to get excited?!😁 No! It's not! Many of us started marathon training for our fall race, and some of us maybe are JUST getting started... either way, it's a good idea to have a plan (not just for your running, but for your self-care and nutrition)!
Whether you're trying a new distance, racing for the first time since Covid, or trying to PR, start thinking about these four things to set yourself up for success:
1️⃣ Start training your gut for performance nutrition NOW! This plays a huge role in performance! Even if you think your belly is too delicate to handle race-day nutrition, I promise you that it can with the right strategy & practice.
2️⃣ Build self-care practice into your routine NOW so that they're not thrown to the wayside when mileage gets high. That's usually the first thing to go... and the reason so many women find themselves head-first in a pint of ice cream during training.
3️⃣ If you haven't run long since the pandemic, it's a good idea to start building a base! Slow, easy runs for the win🎉🎉
4️⃣ Create community to support you as you tackle a new distance or goal or race! My virtual coaching program, FOOD ✨FREEDOM✨ Fit Fam 🌟 is great because it is an amazing community of women aligned with the same goals: to fuel better, improve self care, and self talk.
Recently, one of our FOOD ✨FREEDOM✨ athletes PR'ed her half marathon by TWENTY minutes! And she credited it to better fueling and the support of her awesome FOOD ✨FREEDOM✨ team.
