Health & Fitness:Fitness
This week, I'm talking marathon training, lockdown, planning and new projects with Nicole Avery from Planning with Kids. You can check out some of Nicole's marathon training tips, some ideas for fuelling your training, and here is one of her recipes for a morning protein smoothie. Nicole wanted to run a marathon this year, but 2020 had different ideas! So we talked a bit about the changing landscape of her training this year and how having a personalised plan has helped her.
One of the big questions our awesome crew in Run Club have, is how do you juggle it all - family, work, running? And Nicole talks us through some of her main processes for putting her planning to work for her so she has more time for marathon training and more quality family time.
We talk pacing vs effort, how to get your head around hard workouts and not changing what our coach has written.
Nicole has started a new project: Adapt Drinks. Nicole has developed a drink with a focus on relaxation, stress relief and recovery - without any sugar or alcohol additives. The drinks include adaptogenic herbs, which you could take as a supplement - but are now in a drink form to retain that ritual of having a drink. So it's a great way to get your relaxation or stress relief without all the negatives associated with alcohol. I think it's such a cool concept, and I promptly contributed to her campaign to get my pre-order sorted! You can pre-order yours here.
Support me on patreon and get access to a whole range of bonus podcast episodes, and an ebook with 52 running workouts, so you'll never be stuck for ideas ever again.
